Coaching facilitates integral, developmentalchanges that involve the heart, mind, and body. The process engages all of our faculties, thus cultivating a more informed awareness of our internal and external environments, including how we view the situation, our emotional terrain, what we are sensing in our bodies, the relationships that support us, and our interconnectedness with others in the world.
Working one-on-one or with teams (both on-site and in workshops or retreats), Being & Becoming partners with clients to identify the new behaviors they want to practice. We then work together to implement a plan of action designed to achieve lasting change, with an ultimate goal of helping them maximize their potential both personally and professionally.
Clients seeking Being & Becoming coaching services often find themselves asking deep questions about their personal and professional lives, including how to:
In addition, when it comes to the business world—where rapid change, information overload, and technologies enabling round-the-clock availability have resulted in a more competitive environment—effective coaching can mean the difference between running in place and breakout success, or even between success and failure.
Whether using coaching services for personal or professional reasons (and many of our clients use Being & Becoming for both), those who have worked with us report feeling more grounded, balanced, and self-aware, and tell us they enjoy an enhanced sense of meaning, fulfillment, and well-being. They also display greater confidence and an increased ability to achieve success.
Development is about both external and internal change. Outer, or horizontal, change pertains to developing new skills and competencies in order to achieve our goals, to deliver results, and to be more effective in the world. Inner, or vertical, change is about developing meaning and fulfillment in our lives. When we begin to ask the question “To what end?” we gain clarity about “Who am I?”
It is not enough to read a book about learning how to play the piano or to speak effectively in public. Research has shown that our brains are elastic and that new neural pathways are formed throughout our lives—whether we are 8 or 98. We need to practice these skills so that new learning is impressed upon our bodies at a cellular level. It is only through practice, and the resulting neurological change, that real learning takes place.
