What are you doing in coaching sessions that could be inhibiting your goals?

Why we go to coaching

Growth and change

Every second counts

Ways we avoid getting the most from coaching or therapy sessions:

1. Getting so lost in the problem we block the solution

2. Becoming best friends with your coach at your own expense

3. You want to please and impress the coach and so avoid going deeper into uncomfortable areas

4. You want to give up too soon believing the process isn’t working (or your coach is useless)

5. You get so caught up in your thoughts, you forget your feelings

6. You entertain the coach to avoid issues

7. You use offense as a form of defense

8. You tell long stories, wasting precious session time
