Creating A New You.... Transformational Coaching

Transformational Coaching

Life just happens sometimes.  You get busy making a living, raising a family and dreams can get put aside.  Years go by and opportunities are missed.  Negative thoughts can stifle progression to realization of dreams and goals.  Those dreams and hopes get buried and forgotten.
But change can happen and under the right conditions, hopes are renewed.  The chance for doing something new, being creative and becoming that great person that is secretly tucked away.  Arousing that inner person and setting the course to a new life is the purpose of transformational coaching.
Transformational coaching is a positive encouraging process that helps people live life and become the people they always wanted to be. What a coach does is help guide individuals through self-actualization processes, helping them to understand their true potential and their individual points of excellence.
Becoming held responsible for one's life is the foundational aspect of transformation. It helps people to acknowledge that everything in their lives is, in one way or another, as a result of their own choices and decisions. They have been creating their own reality all along and that reality can be built on limitations instead of possibilities. This realization enables peoples to understand that different choices will result in a different life, empowering them to make new choices that move them in the direction of their greatest aspirations.

How Does It Work

Transformational Coaching works with individuals to create a development program based on “visions” that set the course. Visions depend on imagination and peoples have fun imagining who they could be, but in reality, visualization is a challenge. It requires individuals to look beyond superficial desires to those passions that bring more profound satisfaction.
For example, somebody who wants to be a famous actor may just be looking for a way to express themselves.  The true objective is that it can manifest in a varieties of different areas.

When visualizing the sky is the limit, they embody the biggest, most outrageous dreams you could think of in a world without time constraints, financial obligations, lifestyle limitations, or any other kind of blockages. These visions guide you to evolve into your individual perception of change. Often this leads to discovering even more profound dreams within themselves that generate new visions, motivating them to alter their initial program.
Visions help to set goals that move individuals forward. Goals are steps that address the variety of issues that need to be resolved. They may be internal goals such as changing negative self-talk, physical goals such as walking every day, or developmental goals such as signing up for a web design class or piano lessons.
Success comes from applied focus. Peoples begin to see results as soon as they begin to apply their efforts. Often just the act of stepping outside self-imposed safe boundaries brings a sense of liberation.
Wherever the steps in the plan lead, staying with the program requires ongoing commitment, a willingness to examine one's inner self, and the courage to take a leap of faith into the future. Coaches provide perspective and encouragement during this process of self-discovery and realization. And although the process is sometimes difficult, it provides the satisfaction of progressive accomplishment.

Transformational Process

The transformational approach includes a combination of traditional talk therapy, alternative motivational therapies that focus on inner work and relaxation. Coaches guide individuals through conversations in an effort to bring issues and unacknowledged impediments into perspective.
Identifying and dissolving impediments such as limiting beliefs is one of the first steps in the process, addressing powerful negative self-talk that keeps peoples from taking on new challenges. Self-talk such as “I can't do that because I have a family to support,” and “I don't have time” are examined by the coach and the individual. These often are excuses that individuals use to prevent them from achieving or realizing their goals. The coach helps the individual stop this kind of internal discussion, while helping discover ways to work around these impediments.

Results of Transformational Coaching

Transformational coaching changes all areas of a person’s life, often simultaneously. This can be overwhelming and is the reason that the coach and individuals partnership is so important. A transformational Coach helps with many of life’s challenges, and appreciates a spiritual focus in the resolution of workplace stressors, family life, career decisions, relationship issues, and personal growth concerns. A transformational coach gives people an action plan and works as their coach to help realize their goals and aspirations.
