is Coaching right for you?

You must be prepared to be honest with yourself, have courage to challenge yourself, have faith in yourself and demonstrate a true commitment to change. You will choose what to explore, what to change and what to keep. You will want to look to the future, to get from where you are now to where you want to be. Your Coach, will never judge you or what you say - there to help you to concentrate on what really matters for you - and will challenge you to access your inner wisdom, realise what is true and right for you so you may act accordingly.

Here is a quick questionnaire that may help you to decide if coaching is a right approach for you. Consider the 10 questions. Give yourself a score between 1 and 5 for each. Do not dwell on your score. Score 1 is Low and 5 is High. Add up your total and refer to the summary at the end.

erm no
oh yes
There is something I want to work on or achieve.       
Working collaboratively with my coach, I will design my way forward.       
I am willing to change my behaviours that I realise are interfering with my success.       
I am willing to "try-on" new concepts, approaches or different ways of doing things to help me to achieve success.       
I will keep appointments with myself to do the work I discover I need to do during my coaching experience. I will keep my word without self-sabotaging.       
I will be truly honest with myself and my coach. I will be open with my coach about what I like or don't like about my coaching experience.       
I have adequate funds to pay for coaching and I will not regret or suffer because of the fee. I see coaching as a worthwhile investment in my life and me.       
This is the right time and subject for me to take a coaching approach.       
I can be relied upon to be on time for coach appointments.       
I am willing to work with my coach in an atmosphere of mutual trust, honesty and commitment.
