2012 Lets do this!!     

Hello and Happy New Year!

Here at Inspiration to Action we are continuously researching the benefits of Life Coaching and keeping bang up to date with recent articles and reports and we have put together some key points to kick off our blog for 2012.

We have selected points that identify the value that coaching can add to any business or person and have defined just some of the reasons having a professional coach really is the best thing for personal and professional development:

What a coach can do for you:

Coaching is perfect for anyone who is motivated to create a better life. Coaches assist their clients explore and come up with the best choices for them based on where they are and the client's vision for their future. Coaches are experts at the process of changing behaviour, which is much more valuable than just giving instructions.

You will have more positivity in your life:

Professional coaches focus on positive outcomes and to be a source of motivation. They tailor their efforts to help you find greater satisfaction. Since no two people are the same, having a professional coach ensures you are getting assistance that completely relates to your individual wants and needs.

More importantly, it’s been proven that the best way to get what you want is to surround yourself with positive people. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case with family and friends. So, having a professional coach ensures you've got at least one positive influence in your life!

You could see a 3X return on your investment:

Development and Wellness programs have been shown to provide approximately a 300% return on investment (ROI). In other words, companies who spend £1 in a wellness program earn £3 as a result of fewer sick days, reduced health insurance costs, etc. It's no wonder these programs are experiencing such tremendous growth - it makes financial sense!

You ’ll be following in the footsteps of star performers:

One outdated stigma is coaching is for people who are under-performing or troubled. On the contrary!

Most who seek out coaching do so because they want to be high performers and feel satisfied with their efforts. According to Paul Michelman, editor of "Harvard Business School's Management Update," "Whereas coaching was once viewed by many as a tool to help correct under performance, today it is becoming much more widely used in supporting top producers. In fact, in a 2004 survey by Right Management Consultants, 86% of companies said they used coaching to sharpen the skills of individuals who have been identified as future organizational leaders."

So, by choosing to invest in coaching, you are saying to the world you believe in yourself and your ability to be a successful star performer!

It doesn't take up a lot of time:

Many people assume coaching is like working out, you need to do it daily to see any results. Not true! Good coaches understand that you need to work personal and professional development into your schedule. Moreover, studies show that just a few hours/month can have a huge impact. It has been reported that best practices in coaching call for between two and four sessions per month that last at least 20 minutes and up to 60 minutes. A ideal scenario for many coaches and clients seems to be three sessions per month for 20 to 45 minutes a session - a minuscule investment of time for the results achieved.

Professional coaches tell you what you NEED to hear:

While you may be friendly with your professional coach, they are your advocate for change. Unlike your family and friends who may be are opinionated and bias about your and lifestyle, a professional coach will look at you objectively and strive to empower you to take the necessary actions to achieve your goals.

In short, while the people in your life tend to tell you what you want to hear, your professional coach will be honest and tell you what you need to hear to make your personal and professional goals a reality.

They’ll help break bad habits:

We identify habits that are holding individuals back from success. Then, coach on the actions that should be taken to learn new, better ways to accomplish goals. In short, coaches identify how to remove the barriers to success and therefore enlighten and empower!

Law of Attraction & Emotional Intelligence?!?

Whilst we are coaches who totally believe in the Law of Attraction and Emotional Intelligence and incorporate this into our sessions, our main aim is to provide practical, professional and proactive assistance to both business and individuals who are focused on tangible results not airy-fairy-ness!

Inspiration to Actions purpose is to create positive changes and empower you to succeed. We are passionate about helping people who want to learn and achieve more in life and at work.

Bottom line: coaching is an investment that will produce results and rewards way above and beyond the cost!
