Paul Greene & Kate Austin's Coaching Terms
Coaching is the most profound way to grow and expand at an accelerated rate. Think of anyone who is at the top of their field, like an Olympian or a CEO. The more successful they become, the more coaching they get. Coaching offers reflections and feedback to shine lights on our blind spots and accountability to keep us on track for our goals and dreams to be our reality.
However, if you think of anything as it grows, it can be uncomfortable, that's why it's called growing pains! We often can feel lost, vulnerable, and scared when we are chartering new territory. However, we promise on the other side of that is empowerment and elation! So please don't shy away from the process, embrace it fully! You will be grateful that you did. For us to be effective coaches for you, we will only listen to you as your possibility and greatness; we are not going to indulge any stories. So if you go into story we will remind you of your greatness, sometimes we are so attached to our stories that we feel offended when we don't get to share them. Know that we have your back, and will be coming from all love if that looks like tough love at times, know its because we know you are big enough and can handle it. We are a stand you get your breakthroughs so know that that's our absolute intention.
DEFINING TERMS: COACH VS. THERAPIST
What is therapy? Therapy, also called counseling or psychotherapy, is a long-term process in which a client works with a healthcare professional to diagnose and resolve problematic beliefs, behaviors, relationship issues, feelings, and sometimes physical responses. The idea behind therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings. In this sense, therapy focuses on the past and on introspection and analysis, with the hope of resolving past issues and creating a happier, more stable future.
What does a coach do? The difference between a coach and therapist is that a coach sets clients up with a process that may be long or short-term. In coaching, a client works with a coach, who is not a healthcare professional, in order to clarify goals and identify obstacles and problematic behaviors in order to create action plans to achieve desired results. The process of coaching takes the client's current starting point as an acceptable neutral ground and is more action-based from that point onward. A coach enables the person receiving advice to take control of their life and take action to steer it toward their goals.
