Do you feel “stuck”? Demotivated, undervalued, or demoralized? Do you feel you have more to offer?
Life is not easy, and it’s very common to experience these feelings but get too bogged down to do anything about them. That may be why coaching is gaining so much ground.
All of us need an objective listener and supporter in our lives but we don’t always get it through family, friends or colleagues. Because technically they are not objective at all. They have history with us. They’ve established their own views about us.
Unwittingly they may have contributed to the pigeonhole in which we find ourselves. Frequently we just go along accepting this because it’s easy to do and the alternative can be scary and can take time and energy.
That’s true. Coaching will take time and energy and, at times, it may even be scary. But if you want something different than what you have now, it can be the link to a new and rewarding future.
If any of these short scenarios resonate with you, or you feel similar limitations or roadblocks, I’d be happy to talk with you about how coaching can help you.

How can he turn this around for his own sake and the sake of his colleagues?
