Two weeks ago, we had a coaching meeting with coaching pioneers such as Weal AlGhamdi, Yazen, Malak, Ayman Khalifah, Mohammed, and Abdullah. We talked about a coaching concept which lets people discover their own goals in life. Also, we have empty the cup.
In our society, we have many misconceptions for coaching as the following points:
-Some people does not know the differences between a psychotherapist and a coach.
- Some think that the coach is searching for money only.
-coaching is a trend or for showing off.
- Some psychotherapists think the coach is dominating and playing their roles.
However, there are many good points of life coaching:
-Coaching is supporting our behaviors positively and changing our thoughts.
-in lingual map of coaching is different. For example, the word failed or loser has different concepts.
In addition, we discussed some points that a coach must take them in consideration:
- A coach is a doer.
-the coach must concentrate on his strength points and know his confront zone.
Last week, I gave a course of emotional intelligence in Prince Nora University.
I mentioned that a life coaching is depending on emotional intelligence.
Moreover, high level of emotions depends on the emotional intelligence.
A coach is not giving advices. He is supporting people to achieve their goals, aware of their strengths and weakness points, and arrange their life aspects.
A coach is not an expert, however; he helps people to arrange their values.
