If the start of another year means you’re thinking about making some changes in your life, coaching might be the perfect tool in your personal development toolkit.
You might have some great ideas about goals you want to achieve, or habits you want to cultivate. Turning these aspirations into tangible action is where we often fall short. The accountability and support provided by a professional coaching psychologist can make all the difference, turning your ideas into real behavioural change.
Or perhaps you need to get some additional clarity on your next steps in your career. Maybe you’re reflecting on what you want to do in your professional life full stop, or looking to act on feedback you’ve received at work. Taking a step back with an objective and supportive coach can provide new perspectives and a plan of action that can move you forward.
The bottom line is that coaching can be a valuable and worthwhile investment for the kinds of changes you want to make in your life, be it productivity, wellbeing, careers, relationships or simply taking time out to plan your future. Whatever your development focus, an experienced and accredited coach can make all the difference.
Yes, but what about…?
But as soon as you think about coaching, it can prompt some important questions.
- What does coaching involve?
- How do I find a professional coach?
- How can I make best use of coaching?
- What pitfalls should I work to avoid?
- How long should coaching last?
If you’ve never worked with a coach before, it’s completely natural to have a lot of questions – from the very concept of coaching, through to the practical logistics of coaching sessions. And considering the investment of time, effort and money you’ll be making, it’s important to be clear on what you’re getting into.
Unfortunately, trawling the internet won’t always get you helpful or even accurate answers. So what can you do?
Get some answers!
To answer these kinds of questions, we’re running a free webinar on January 25th. Chartered Coaching Psychologist Dr. Richard MacKinnon will explain what coaching is and how it can help you. He’ll bust some common coaching myths, explain what to look for in a coach and explore the unique contribution a coaching psychologist can make to your development.
Richard will explain how to extract the maximum value from your coaching experience and ensure it’s a worthwhile experience.
