In today's world few will dispute that the pace of change seems to be accelerating so fast that we often stop being conscious of the choices we are making. These unconscious choices may affect our quality of life, and gradually overwhelm us until we are so busy fighting "inner fires" that we have no time or energy for "fire prevention." The function of a good coach is to help his or her clients focus, organise and set priorities in their hectic lives.
People with ADD symptoms taking up NLP coaching report:
Beginning the Coaching Process
Coaching begins with a 90 minute in-person planning session where the coaching relationship is designed to meet an individual client's specific needs. Values, goals, and priorities are discussed. Strategies are agreed upon and an action outline is produced. From this point, weekly 60 minute sessions, either in-person or by phone help to maintain momentum and focus. A coach often makes himself or herself available for concerns, problems, or personal success reports during brief check-ins between sessions. The cost of coaching is about £200 per month.
Coaching Is A Prescription For Success
Coaches use four "S's"-- structure, support, skill building, and strategies -- to help clients stay "accountable" for follow-through on their goals. Find Out How ADD Coaches Use the Four S's
The coach provides unconditional support when you need
it and reminds you of your successes when you forget. The purpose of
a coaching relationship is to: 1) help a client identify what he or
she wants, 2) plan the steps, and 3) take action toward desired goals.
People with ADD are intelligent, loving, creative, loyal, intuitive, energetic, spontaneous and fun to be around. Many thrive on the stable coaching structure. The coach is your ally keeping you on track, your partner when shifting ideas into action, and your scout helping you anticipate and avoid road blocks. Coaches help clients reach destinations never dreamed possible by holding the big picture until the client can hold it himself, by asking questions that provoke self-awareness and responsibility, and by making requests that the client take action.
Coaching falls between consulting and psychotherapy. Like consultants, coaches are often called in to address a business problem or assess a work performance situation: but unlike consultants who give advice, coaches seek solutions from the client to help the client move forward. Then the client's change in behaviour and attitude is permanent. The coach has helped the client bring out his or her best.
Like therapy, coaching is an on-going relationship with emphasis on listening, understanding, and bringing internal obstacles to the surface. In addition, coaching uses requests for action and accountability. An ADD coach works with people who have identified areas they wish control over such as:
Coaching clients are eager to move to a higher level
of functioning; this might mean increased productivity, better life
balance, or more personal satisfaction. They are unsure how to take
the steps to accomplish this. Often coaching, with its theme of
focus, clarity, planning, and action, is the missing link that gets
people thinking about their values and moving forward.
