A business / executive coach will work with a client to help them fulfill their vision for their organization, and “arrive at their desired destination”.
In the book titled Aspire, Kevin Hall discusses that, The word “Coach” derives from the horse-drawn coaches developed in the fifteenth century. They were originally used to transport royalty, but in time they also carried valuables, mail, and common passengers. A COACH remains something or someone who carries a valued person from where they are to where they want to be. If you were traveling with a coach, you knew you would end up at your desired destination.
First, as with any journey, we must start with a realistic understanding of our current location: the “You Are Here” on our map. A coach will discuss your current environment to assist you in establishing this base.
Second, what good is a journey without a clear vision of where we want to go? A coach will aid in uncovering your vision and WHY you want to go there. The WHY is incredibly important. Truly understanding your purpose will motivate you in a greater way when the road gets rough and provide fulfillment in your life.
Third, once we know where we are, where we are going, and why we want to go there, a coach will help create a map with “turn-by-turn” directions to get to the desired destination. This map should include landmarks to measure and celebrate the success. After all, we should be enjoying this journey. Enjoying the journey means more than just setting and meeting goals. Truly enjoying the journey means that you find balance between life and work. You should have the capacity to invest into the people and activities that bring you joy.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, a coach will walk this path with you to assist in removing road blocks, opening your eyes to blind spots, discussing issues as they arise, celebrating the successes or learning from the losses along the way, and reminding you of the destination. This is done with open conversation, tools to help overcome obstacles, and accountability.
