Successful people aren’t born successful. They become successful. How? By doing those things that other people don't do.
What drives people to do things that end up making them successful is a blend of passion, enthusiasm and commitment.
What a coach does is help that person create the momentum and direction needed to take a vision forward.
I facilitate by asking better questions, rather than prescriptively completing coaching exercises. Tools are used, to develop both behaviour and skills, but not led by any fixed agenda. Having said that, twenty years immersed in business does, of course, mean I contribute to the productivity of sessions.
In principle, any trained coach can coach anyone. So the story goes. And in principle it is true. But in the real world, that isn’t the case, because it doesn’t need to be. It’s easy to seek out a coach with an area of expertise, so why wouldn’t you? After all, coaching is one human being entering into a conversation with another human being, albeit one-sided in favour of the coachee. It makes sense to find someone who empathises, with whom you have a good rapport and in whom you recognise certain qualities relevant to you.
