3 Tips for Nurturing Your Innate Coaching Gifts
by Christy Whitman
Do you encourage the people in your life to listen to their inner truth about what their “perfect” life would look like…
...to become the best versions of themselves and take action to make their dreams come true?
Congratulations – you’re a natural-born coach.
Yet chances are pretty good that you’re not fully honoring this gift. Instead, you may shy away from the title of “coach,” dismissing the unique service you provide as “just who I am.”
Or perhaps you’re on the other end of the spectrum, knowing that you really would make a great coach, but thinking that you’ve missed the boat.
Let’s take a closer look at three top misconceptions that might be preventing you from embracing your gifts – and suggestions for nurturing your innate coaching talent.
“I have to have all of the answers
– and I know that I don’t and never will.”
Let yourself off the hook. Having answers is the job of a consultant (and even they don’t have all of the answers all of the time).
A coach’s job is decidedly different. Your role is to help clients look and move forward. In fact, a key attribute of successful coaches is to completely let go of the outcome and instead hold space for whatever comes.
Coaches provide clients with feedback, insights, and guidance from an outside vantage point. Good coaching focuses on an individual's strengths and aims to help the client achieve what they want more of in life and at work.
Your purpose is to help the client identify and achieve their greater goals and to help them live a better life. A good coach isn't there to "fix" anyone, but to help the client navigate toward a more engaged and compelling future.
Your job just got a whole lot easier, didn’t it?
“I’m not perfect, so who am I to think
I can help others create their dream lives?”
Forgive yourself for not being perfect. Being human means that you are – and will always be -- imperfect. Demanding perfection is a great way to ensure that you continue to play it safe and never reach toward your dreams.
Just as you should embrace imperfection in yourself, know that every aspect of your life doesn’t have to be exactly the way you want it before you can coach others.
To be human is to exist in a perpetual state of expansion. This means that every one of us will continue to give birth to desires with which we then will need to align ourselves.
Exceptional coaches engage in perpetual expansion by committing themselves to continual evolution and personal growth. Commitment to your own personal growth is vital because we can’t teach other people what we ourselves don’t know.
Likewise, you can’t guide others to release their limiting beliefs and come into resonance with the next level of success that they desire unless you have actually done this in your own life.
Being committed to your own growth simply means that you take responsibility for the quality of your life experience, and that you regularly strive to fine tune the frequency of your own thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and outlook to attract and receive more of what you desire.
“I’ve missed my chance.
There are too many coaches out there already.”
Are there other coaches in the world? Yes.
But there’s only one you.
You are completely unique. No one has your talents, gifts, perspective, and skills that you have from your unique life experience.
Remember that we live in an abundant universe. There are billions of people on this planet – and some of them are waiting for the unique coaching that only you can provide.
Remember, too, that we are constantly creating our realities with our beliefs. If you believe that there aren’t enough clients to support your coaching practice, you’re right.
And if you believe that there is an abundance of clients that will gladly hire you, you’re right about that, too.
Ultimately, you have the power to decide which reality you want to create.
I encourage you to look within to see what’s stopping you from stepping into your role as a coach. Then coach yourself to create your vision of the ideal life.
The world needs more people to embrace this vital role. Harvard Business Review reports that coaching is a $1 billion a year industry, and all signs point toward continued growth in demand.
Where once coaching was viewed as a last-ditch effort to help people who were struggling in their corporate jobs, it’s now mainstream.
People hire a coach when they are making a career transition, starting a new business, feeling dissatisfied, re-evaluating life choices, or simply looking for personal and professional breakthroughs.
Although we live in an unlimited universe, where human beings are equipped with the innate power to deliberately create their unique “having it all” life…
...the simple truth is that many people aren’t aware of their creative power. They know they want a different life.
But they don’t know how to find the answers they already have within them to create their magnificent, “having it all” life.
As a coach, you can support them in clarifying their visions and taking the action needed to create the results they want. Your first step is to own that, yes, you are meant to be a coach.
