Coaching, in many ways, is distorted.
(i can feel some coaches starting to cancel culture on me. rewind.)
To people who do not know what is coaching, it is perceived as providing advice and solutions for the subject matter. Like a mentor, counselor, or consultant. There is a line of distinctions in each role.
“Please give me guidance.”
“Fix my life.”
“Give me an answer on how to live my life.”
If you want people to give you answers, coaching is not for you.
Fitness trainer = Provides meal plan, workout plan, correct your squat form
Fitness coach = Ask thought-provoking, reflective, powerful questions that reveal a whole new world
Not saying that I should label ‘trainer/coach’ according to the job title, but revealing there are different styles of supporting people to move forward in life.
Regardless of trainer or coach, they deliver results.
I am not telling you how to choose the right coach in this article, but ask yourself:
“Why is having a coach important to you?”
All the love and blessings to you.
