Change (professional & personal)
Change is something that none of us can avoid or should push back. I think change only becomes a negative experience through the way we deal with it, in other words: If we are able to embrace change as something that creates growth and personal development then change is a chance. The process of change should be taken step by step, in ones own ability and speed. New circumstances and developments are a very personal matter, there is no one „recipe“ to deal with them, we all need to find our very own and individual way to approach change!
To me awareness is the key issue in coaching. Only by knowing more about the WHY, HOW and WHEN certain of our behavioural patterns occur we can facilitate change we wish to make in ourselves. Awareness can be learned in every moment of life when you feel unhappy. It is now when you can think of what change you want to make and what you truly want.
Creating awareness about oneself
Relationships of any kind give us love, support and partnership, and a relationship is also a process of development and change. They can be personally challenging and it’s not at least through relationships that we get to know ourselves better. We have to learn to hold on but also to let go. Looking at a relationship from different angles and looking deeper into the meaning and character of it can help to gain clarity about what we want in this relationship.
Coaching in times of crisis
A crisis can be anything and everyone feels differently about what a crisis is or not. A crisis can be the death of a close friend or partner, the end of a relationship, an issue at work, a change in life that seems to be too big to deal with. Coaching helps to bring to surface the deeper feelings, emotions and fears in times of crisis and it helps to work out the strengthening personal internal and external resources that we have and need to manage a crisis.
