I created my own professional coaching practice in 1997, when coaching was just in its infancy. I’ve been very blessed to work with and learn from many pioneers in the field. I was honored to be a member of the founding committee of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council, where we defined and set the standards and ethics for coaching and mentoring professionals in Europe.
Today coaching has graduated into a mainstream profession. It is rapidly becoming the main strategy for personal development. Personal coaching is the most effective way to learn how to identify your strengths and then use them to overcome any challenges. Increasing self-awareness helps you to get out of your own way, in the process.
As you begin your coaching journey the focus is all about developing your skills and competency. Most coaches stop here… (I mentor and teach this in CoachBrilliant).
As your coaching work evolves, it becomes more about your “beingness” – You are connecting and coaching from a much deeper place from within (I believe you are connecting and coaching from your Soul). This is Coaching Mastery - the magic ingredient. Mastery is more about the truth of who you are than what you do or say… (I mentor and teach this in CoachBrilliant)
Learning to be a coach isn’t a one and done activity. There is no destination for you to arrive. Some coaches make this mistake and stop growing after they’ve become accredited or certified. If you truly want mastery - it’s a life-long journey of evolution. The more you learn about yourself, the deeper you can help your clients.
Being in relationship with yourself opens the way for you to build deep, trusting and powerful relationships with your clients. This is the key to success. The more I learn about the truth of who I am, the higher the level of service I give to my clients.
I created CoachBrilliant™ to help coaches and coaching professionals develop their coaching and mentoring skills towards mastery, so that they can help transform the lives of the people that they serve, while also transforming their own lives too.
Whether you are new to coaching, you are considering adding coaching to your professional business, or you are already an established coach, CoachBrilliant™ is a community where like-minded coaches can come together to learn and grow as professionals.
I believe that Life Coaching is the foundation for all forms of coaching. It’s the basic operating system working deeply in the background to support learning and the transformation of others. Why? We are all Human Beings first. The best way to transform our lives is through a combination of self-awareness and growth (mindset and skillset).
Whatever your coaching specialty, you are helping individuals move forward with any improvement or development that they want to make. Your coaching makes their journey easier and more authentic by having you as their trusted guide along the way.
