Coaching, in its modern format, has been around since the late 1990s. People still think of it as something new, but in reality, coaching has been around for millennia. There has never been a period in mankind’s history where coaches did not exist.
Sure, it might have looked a little different, but coaching is as old as the hills. Modern-day coaching may be more refined and a lot more commercially viable, but the principles remain the same.
What Does a Coach Do?
Coaches have the skills and knowledge to advise, support, and encourage their clients.
They help them to:
● Make sound decisions
● Take effective actions
● Resolve their challenges in the most efficient way possible
● Learn from the process, so they can repeat it whenever they want
A coach also can remain detached from the issues at hand. Consider the wise words of Albert Einstein: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Who Hires a Coach?
The only conclusion we can draw from the history of coaching is that the people who hire a coach fall into two camps:
● People who are at the top of their game and want to stay there, or
● People who aspire to be at the top of their game and want to get there as fast as they can
Many people will say that they want to change themselves, their life, their job, or their circumstances, but in real terms, they are fearful of change. They delay, procrastinate, and make excuses. They lack self-confidence and the drive to follow through. It’s human nature. It’s what ordinary people always do.
People who hire a coach are not ordinary people.
They are inspired and have a vision. They embrace change and are prepared to get fully engaged in making positive changes in their life. Plus, they don’t want it to take forever!
