Avoid the trap - take the step!
TRAP #4: "Hitting the wall with inner obstacles" ~ Can only coach surface!
In our experience we have seen this as a big trap. Many well trained coaches cannot confidently and skilfully coach a client's inner obstacles! What we mean by inner obstacles includes fear, procrastination, not knowing what to do, lack of confidence, etc. A traditional coach only knows how to ask the coachee to solve their own inner obstacles, and often they fail to create the space and help the client to do this.
Make sure that you learn to coach people to overcome their inner obstacles!
Check out the STEP to avoid this TRAP.
STEP #4: "Get skills and methods to coach inner obstacles" ~ Coach real inner transformation.
When we built the InnerLifeSkills (ILS) Coach courses, we intentionally focused on equipping our coaches with the ability to coach inner obstacles. Other than world-class competencies, this is what ILS specialises in. Whatever you do, make sure that your path to becoming a coach includes knowing how to coach people to overcome their inner obstacles - to transform fear, lack of confidence, self doubt, procrastination, anger and their "I don't know what to do!" mind.
