Navigating through life can feel like being lost at sea; some days, you’re drowning beneath the waves, while other days, you’re dying from the thirst. Going through big life adjustments like a career change, or more regular challenges like finding that work/personal life balance can be tough. Working through conflicting internal dialogue can feel so overwhelming. It’s enough to give anyone bouts of frustration, feelings of loneliness, and/or varying degrees of depression. While surrounding yourself with friends or loved ones can be therapeutic, it’s a temporary band-aid. Unless you are addressing the main issue(s), these mental blocks will remain. Finding someone to talk to, especially a person who can connect with others and help improve your mental clarity, work on your confidence and identify the blind spots in life, can be instrumental in effecting the change you desire.
Coaching As A Path To Self-Development
Self-development/high-performance consulting, or becoming a life or executive coach, is gaining traction worldwide and in a city like Hong Kong, where a fast- paced lifestyle is the norm, seeking out a trusted coach can do wonders for your mental wellbeing. Many individuals and organizations can benefit from an outside perspective who feel they can’t get over the hurdles between where they are now and where they want to be. Having a life coach can help enhance your personal development and give you the ability to articulate your goals. Sometimes, it can be difficult to decipher all the thoughts in your head. Having an open and honest discussion with someone who is qualified to give professional advice will help you formulate and stay clear about your goals and the direction you would like to head in. As G.I. Joe would say, “knowing is half the battle.” It also gives you the opportunity to focus on you, your aspirations, and what is important to you. Whereas life coaching supports individuals, executive coaching, on the other hand, supports executives, leaders, companies and others who require high levels of performance to cultivate the mental capacity and high-performance habits that will empower them to thrive and succeed. High-performance coaching also helps leaders cultivate strategic thinking, undergo thorough analysis and carry out a suitable course of actions.
Coaching Versus Therapy
It’s important to note that there is a significant difference between coaching and therapy. While the role of a therapist (or counselor) is to help an individual resolve issues from their past in order to operate more effectively in the present, a coach helps us assess the present so that we can operate more effectively in the future. The goal of a life coach is to enhance an individual’s performance or life skills development. It’s a more short-term program (generally between 3 to 12 months) and is solution based, working with a client to establish a better work/life balance, improve their relationships, or accomplish any other goal they are committed to. In other words, they help clients determine what they want out of life and what they need to do to get what they want.
