Originally developed has a process to help individuals reach their highest potential and achieve personal, life-changing growth, Transformational Coaching is now finding its way into corporate board rooms and business management teams where it is powerfully re-energizing stagnant work spaces.
First, what is Transformational Coaching? You may have heard of certain professionals who market themselves as “Life Coaches.” They help clients make personal improvements across and array of issues. That’s can include athletic and physical factors, to work and relationship improvements. Life coaches help people achieve more and live up to their greatest potential.
Transformation Coaching is “life coaching” taken deeper and more all-encompassing. It seeks to not just help people make improvements but transcend themselves and “transform” to a fundamentally higher level of being.
The methods and forms are many. Transformational work involves increasing immediate mental awareness and minute-to-minute acuity. The goal is the strip the cobwebs and old thinking habits that have settled in and mired people in a kind of daily, grinding mediocrity.
Experienced transformational coaches say there are some basic, universal qualities that hold all people back. Among the most common is fear – fear of doing something different, fear of making too many changes and fear of the unknown. People and teams settle into “comfort zones.” The thought process is: “We’ve always done things this way and we’re doing fairly okay, so why rock the boat?”
Transformational coaching can uncover hidden motivations and wake them up. They also help clients develop all new motivations to drive them forward with a purpose they did not have before. To achieve, motivations is necessary. Developing and providing powerful motivation to realize higher goals is part of the process.
When these concept are applied to business management concepts and injected into the milieu of a stagnating corporate culture, the results can be spectacular.
