Why You Must Take Coaching Sessions

Since the human’s existence, the reptilian brain has been saving us by reacting and helping to survive in threatful conditions. Limbic brain which is also called ‘Emotional Brain’ helps us to feel and remember as well as interact with others. Neocortex is the latest developed part of the human brain in human history. This part of the brain provides us to talk, think, move, and learn. Another important task of Cortex is ‘creating’ which separates human beings from animals. Although humankind has had ‘Neocortex’ for many years, we haven’t been using it with full capacity. With the help of technology, ‘visualizing’practice of humans has been used less and less by time and almost disappeared.

When we have something to decide or think about our future or when evaluating existing problems and trying to find solutions to come over them, we think limited although we have the solutions and answers to those within ourselves.

Coaching helps people to think beyond and focus on the problem by asking powerful questions. Putting attention on a future vision where the problem is solved or has disappeared helps create solutions. The transformational shift starts with a high level of attention density. Powerful questions during a coaching session make people concentrate on what they truly want and uplift them to get the motivation to take action on their insights.

In a professional business environment, leaders may face difficulties to change their teams’ insights on having a new project or situation. Coaching helps the organizations by bringing real value to a team’s collective action by an individual or team sessions. Coaching to a team is an efficient way to find and hold the focus in a way that promotes learning within the organization. Change is a pain because it provokes the sensation of physiological discomfort. Coaching is found very effective to help change and adapt to a new situation in an organization by individual sessions. In fact, rather than lecturing and providing solutions, effective coaches ask pertinent questions and support individuals in working out solutions on their own. This being the case, people find the motivation and the inside power to act on the way to solve their problems or to accept and adapt to the new situation.

Another aim of a coaching session is to increase people’s ‘attention density’ towards what they would like to think about. Repeated, purposeful, and focused attention can lead to long-lasting personal evolution which shapes identity over time. Leaders in organizations who want to change the way people think or behave should learn to recognize, encourage, and deepen their team’s insight. It is more effective and efficient to help others come to their own insights. Therefore, coaching in an organization is better to start with the leaders first. Following that, individual coaching sessions for team members supported by team coaching activities are effective solutions to increase motivation and make easy transformations in organizations to adapt to changing conditions.

In conclusion, coaching sessions help people identify their values deeply, achieve their real potential, visualize themselves in their goals, and motivate them to take action to reach the desired image. It helps individual awareness, a step towards to set goals and develop empathy and motivation to work more efficiently as a team.

Coaching can change the individual success affecting the whole organization, one session at a time.
