the most popular questions

What is professional coaching?

Endeavour Connections defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential.

How can you determine if coaching is right for you?

To determine whether you or your company could benefit from coaching, start by summarizing what you would expect to accomplish in coaching. When an individual or business has a fairly clear idea of the desired outcome, a coaching partnership can be a useful tool for developing a strategy for how to achieve that outcome with greater ease.

Since coaching is a partnership, ask yourself whether collaboration, other viewpoints, and new perspectives are valued. Also, ask yourself whether you or your business is ready to devote the time and the energy to making real changes. If the answer is yes, then coaching may be a beneficial way to grow and develop

What are some typical reasons someone might work with a coach?

An individual or team might choose to work with a coach for many reasons, including but not limited to the following:

· Something urgent, compelling or exciting is at stake (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity) 

· A gap exists in knowledge, skills, confidence or resources

· A desire to accelerate results

· A lack of clarity with choices to be made

· Success has started to become problematic

· Work and life are out of balance, creating unwanted consequences

· Core strengths need to be identified, along with how best to leverage them

What does coaching ask of an individual?

To be successful, coaching asks certain things, all of which begin with intention. Additionally, clients should:

· Focus on one's self, the tough questions, the hard truths and one's success.

· Observe the behaviors and communications of others.

· Listen to one's intuition, assumptions, judgments, and to the way one sounds when one speaks.

· Challenge existing attitudes, beliefs and behaviors and develop new ones that serve one's goals in a superior way.

· Leverage personal strengths and overcome limitations to develop a winning style.

· Take decisive actions, however uncomfortable and in spite of personal insecurities, to reach for the extraordinary.

· Show compassion for one's self while learning new behaviors and experiencing setbacks, and to show that compassion for others as they do the same.

· Commit to not take one's self so seriously, using humor to lighten and brighten any situation.

· Maintain composure in the face of disappointment and unmet expectations, avoiding emotional reactivity.

Have the courage to reach for more than before while engaging in continual self examination without fear
