Today, I had an exchange with one of the person I coached. She thanked me for the “déclic” she had while working with me. The pircture is a thank you note she gave me. As she said we met at the right time and place. She was not really looking into coaching when she read my publication. She read it and she knew it was time for her to take action. She felt lost in her career. She did not know what she wanted and she did not know what to search for.
I believe that she possessed the keys to her questions. Everyone does. She deeply knew what she wanted. She just could not see it yet. Our daily life and worries sometimes stop us from seeing the obvious. During our coaching my aim was to help her realize that another future was possible. She was open to the idea of answering uncomfortable questions. You know the ones when you think “ough, she got me!”, “why is she asking that question?” This is the moment where the magic can happen. When you are under shocked for a split of a second. At that time, new possibilities and ideas can come through. That is exactly what happened to her. She wanted to explore a new career path in design.
One morning in the silence of her apartment. She was searching for information about a design school. She had a strong intuition. Suddenly, she knew that she wanted to become a psychologist. In fact, as she gave herself the right to imagine a future in another field (design) allowed her to open herself to what she really wanted (psychology).
During our discussion, she said that without our exchanges she would have never found her true “calling”. I believe that she would have eventually found her answer but it may have taken few months or years. The coaching was a catalyst, an accelerator in her quest.
Guiding her in this process showed me that we can always be surprise by the people we coach. This is what I love about my role. I never know what will come out of our discussions. The human potential has many facets and possibilities. It expresses itself uniquely in each individual. Each coachee is the one responsible for their success in the coaching process.
