The messages contained in these and other great books asks us to believe we are all capable of infinite possibilities and can find them if we just look within ourselves. In coaching, it is imperative that we believe that our clients contain within them unlimited possibilities.
Of course there will be many other teachers, mentors, friends and family members who will have an impact on how we coach. Certainly for me that is true. They are several key people in my life that continue to help me believe in myself and they continue to provide unconditional love and support.
My Mother, always tells me: “You can be and do anything that you make up your mind to be or do”. The same belief in our clients is why coaching can have such a powerful impact to our clients life.
My Twin Sister who is always on my side, and is always there whenever I need a friend or just someone to talk to. The trust and the non-judgemental love that we share is very important to me. As a coach we will need to create a similar trust with our clients.
Helping a client believe in themselves is for me is one the most important parts of coaching. As a client I can speak first hand to this. My coach ‘Ian Kain’ was instrumental in providing motivation and belief in myself when I was struggling with writing my coaching model and my power tool. He always believes in me which gives me the confidence to take the actions that move me forward. As a coach you may be the one person who can make a difference in the life of your client just by believing in them.
