More than the Weather
Lately, I've been focusing more on the weather as the season changes in
front of me – from the warmer, longer days of summer to the cooler,
shorter days of fall. All around the world, people are talking about the
weather; what it will be like today; wondering if they need a coat or an
umbrella, or even snow boots. Much of our day-to-day conversation begins
with talking about the weather, and I've noticed that the weather brings
people together – it's a universal topic.
Also, I've noticed that talking about the weather is safe, short, to-the-point,
and usually leads to a quick good-bye. I wonder what thoughts, feelings and
ideas are bubbling below the surface of the weather conversation. What are
people longing to express – if they had the time, energy and a deeper
connection with others? I believe people have a desire to connect with
themselves and others on a deeper level, and coaching taps into that desire.
During my coaching sessions with clients, we spend the first part of the
session checking-in, and talking about what's happened since we last spoke.
It's the time when we reconnect with each other, and bring the details of
recent events to the present moment. We discuss wins and accomplishments,
challenges, setbacks and struggles in their lives. In the process, I notice
subtle or extreme changes that affect the client's life much like the subtle
and extreme changes in the weather that affect our lives.
Then, the conversation moves from the surface, more factual events to a deeper
level – focusing on breakthroughs, opportunities and possibilities. Coaching
provides a safe place to open-up, share your feelings and ideas. Coaching also
provides structure to set goals, create a plan and identify action points to help
you evolve. Coaching is an equal partnership that is client focused and client
driven. Coaching is about you and your journey. Coaching offers:
Coaching taps into that desire for a deeper connection with yourself and others.
