What is Coaching?
Coaching is about getting the very best out of you and enabling you to make decisions that will improve your life. It is about unlocking your potential for success in all areas of your life. Coaching identifies the things you would like to change, where you would like to be in the future, and then focuses and supports you to take action. The results can be very powerful and the coach encourages you to always be thriving towards your goals, hopes and dreams.
In Coaching with 2minds, we work with the client to discover and utilise their own most productive strategies, values and other modalities already at his disposal, those which are not being utilised to the most benefit. The focus is on the client achieving their goals and objectives.
In NLP Coaching, we don’t offer advice as to what to do – we coach the client HOW to utilise their own capabilities and already present strategies and values. By discovering and understanding the client’s intrinsic abilities, we can assist in maximising those abilities and so to make it possible for the client to take actions necessary to achieve his/her desired results.
NLP Coaching concentrates on the Client implementing the best strategies to achieve the desired goals and objectives.
3 Core areas of NLP coaching
Goals – Values – Beliefs
Life is a series of small decisions each one seems inconsequential yet they add up.
Opposite to goal setting is problem solving – focus on what is wrong. NLP coaching ensures that the focus is on clarity of the goal and how it will be achieved along with maintaining this focus on achievement not on what could go wrong.
All goals are generated by values.
You need to respect the value that generates the goal e.g. man wants to show love to his family and works long hours to give them all they want … all are unhappy as he is never home.
Once we find the core value behind the goal we will ensure that the actions needed will help generate the goal being achieved through the need to find out how the client can live and respect the value towards the goal. Value and goal alignment is critical and with NLP techniques we ensure this is the case.
Beliefs – Whether we believe we can or we cant … We are right !
We focus on creating belief that the goal will be achieved. Positive thinking is very powerful and at 2minds, we help the client remove any limiting beliefs that would potentially jeopardise the success. Where our clients doubt a successful outcome then this is likely to be exactly what they will achieve. NLP coaching will remove any thought and behavioural strategies that we run in our mind that provide any doubt or belief through a number of tools and techniques.
Together we identify any limiting beliefs that the client may have even if they don’t know they have it. When we ask a client what stops them achieving their goals then often this will be a limiting belief.
