If you need me I here for you...
Some human resource personnel wonder why fortune 500 companies have one of the best executives in the country. What they don't know is that top businesses have been using a secret weapon for years now
High Rise Pressure Cooker
A ranking company officer is expected to perform well, and to deserve the designation given to him/ her. People below and above you bank on your leadership abilities, skills, and excellent decisions. They will continually expect that you will always be the best. In fact, you will be called upon to speak on behalf of the company; to give advice on success, business and marketing strategies, and how to handle complex dilemmas. All these and more is expected of you. It is presumed that you handle your professional and personal life in the manner of unequaled grace.
Life Coaching Benefits
The benefits of life coaching cannot be measured. Investing in a life coach is like having a friend to talk to and a guidance counselor all rolled into one. Life coaching makes you feel interactive, and open without having to delve too deep into the past. The present and the future are what matters the most.
Dr. T.OD is the coach who is a professional listener who helps people internalize and realize their wants and needs to better-set goals and maintain a sense of self without having to change careers and antagonize family.
It is a sure bet that you probably needed a friend one time or the other but were too afraid of being judged and later betrayed. A life coach is duty-bound to be professional in handling all confidential matters. Life coaching is a synergy between client coaches.
Justifying the Need for a Coach
People think that just because you're successful, and in a high ranking position with a ridiculously large amount of salary, you're happy. What they fail to realize is that the bigger the wage, the more elevated the post, the greater the responsibility. What is even more difficult in this situation is that an executive has to smile and bear it even if their heads are exploding with all the problems, and complications they have to handle.
Seeking support is not a sign of weakness, instead of strength because it takes a lot of courage to admit that no man is an island.
Personal and Emotional stress
Quite naturally there may be times when all you want to do is hide underneath the sheets and be invisible. Unfortunately, if you are one of those people who set high standards for other people and an even higher one for yourself, then hiding is not an option. Putting pressure on oneself is not uncommon. Many people who achieve a great level of accomplishment are there not because they give themselves a pat on the back when they do something right. Instead, they are on top because every time they triumph they dissect the situation and look for ways to do things better.
The downside to being good at what you do is that despite reaching far more than the expectations of others, most achievers never seem to be contented with their performance. Hence, these people fail to see the flowers that bloom from the roses they have planted.
A superior life and sustainability coach will recognize all these and help draw out the client. Putting the pressures in a different aspect will help clients see things from a different perspective ( aka lens)
For 1on1 coaching
Unlike popular belief, life coaching is not a quick fix. The session can take months and months of activities in order to really see one's self clearly in connection to reality. Life coaching is interactive, it is positive, it moves forward. These are the reasons why life coaching is actually good for people. The emphasis however is on whether a life coach is qualified to be one or not.
