When we were kids, people often ask us what do we want to be or what do we want to do when we grow up. And most of the time, our answers are often based on the professions we know like the ones that our parents have or those who we often interact with- like doctors or teachers. But as we grow up, we come to get to know ourselves, our capabilities, and what our passions are better and through this a few professions slowly come to mind.
How about you? Are you living your dream profession? If not, what is your dream profession? Do you want a profession or an occupation that brings out the best in you and in others? If so, maybe you’d like to consider being a professional coach. So how can becoming a Professional Coach help develop you and others?
You learn new things about yourself – who you are and how you interact with others and the world around you.
Working with like-minded people helps you think positively and encourages you to develop yourself.
Coaching skills set you up to develop a better understanding of others and what motivates them to behave as they do.
Coaching skills allow you to work with others to establish better communication, which in turn results in better relationships.
Coaching is a real vocation. It enables clients to live the lifestyle they have dreamed of, but cannot manage to achieve on their own. It expands their horizon so that they see new opportunities in relation to their life, career or business. Often we get stuck in our own thoughts and feelings, and cannot see a way out. This is where a Coach can assist clients get out of the mental mindset that is holding them back, and create new possibilities for how clients see the future, and their place in it.
Being a Professional Coach can also help some clients understand why behavioural change is not easy. They might think or wonder as to why others cannot change instead of them. They might ask: “Why do I always have to do something different?”. As someone with knowledge about how people behave, you can explain to them that if they do something different, this will have a ripple effect on others close to them and cause these people to reflect on how they behave, and possibly make changes themselves – all this for the betterment of their life, family and situation.
Consider becoming a Professional Coach and become the start of the ripple effect! Help others, help yourself and be the change this world needs.
