When you are authentic you are coming from your heart and spirit. Courage is the catalyst. The origin of the word courage is Old French corage, meaning “heart and spirit.” When you apply courage to your purpose you are being from your heart and spirit—you are the embodiment of authenticity—being authentic takes courage. Courage Coaching connects purpose with heart. The coaching experience enlarges the portal to your heart’s purpose.
What is coaching?
Being a coach is no different than being a music teacher or workshop presenter; it merely focuses in a more complete way. Coaching is life planning; it is a journey driven by passion. The coach is someone who partners with the client to be a vision builder and value shaper. A coach is someone who holds you accountable for the design of your life, helping you make sure you really do live up to your potential. A coach does not tell you what to do. The coach asks questions to help you find your own unlocked solutions. A coach:
- Empowers us to transform who we are and reinvent ourselves by how our frames of reference, thinking and behavior produce unintended consequences.
- Encourages us to surface and question the way we have framed points of view about ourselves, others, or our circumstances, with the idea of creating a fundamental shift, such as how we view conflict or being assertive.
- Guides us to take effective action (Peter Drucker calls it “making strengths productive”).
- Helps us determine what we really want to do–our personal “calling.”
