Goal coaching sessions are designed for individuals who want to set and achieve personal, social and professional goals.
Setting and achieving goals helps you reach the destination of your personal, social or professional journey faster. Why do you need to set goals? After all, you can just up and do it. But if we don’t set internal and external goals, do we really know where we’re headed? What point we want to reach and what result we’re looking for?
Setting and achieving goals is like a navigation system that takes you to your chosen destination. Without determining the direction of travel and the final point of arrival, we will never reach it – we’ll just keep moving around in circles.
Not having a goal is also a goal. Our wishes, desires and visions for the future are born automatically, so we unconsciously follow some of them. Setting goals shows that we are looking at life consciously and responsibly, and not living in automatic mode.
Consciously setting short, medium and long-term goals helps answer the question of what the point of your activities is. Achieving goals (creating and executing an action plan) helps you take responsibility for your experiences, feel like the master of your life, and act like a mature person.
When authentic goals are set, they are pursued calmly, without looking at other people’s lives, because we understand exactly what we’re looking for – what makes us happy and provides fulfillment and inner satisfaction – so there is a clear direction.
Goal coaching sessions help you:
measure the progress of ongoing activities;
assess the level of internal satisfaction with the activities;
evaluate and measure external results;
improve personal effectiveness;
develop useful habits;
elucidate the point of your activities;
strengthen personal power;
avoid the fear of missing out (FoMO);
identify reasons for procrastination;
enjoy the authenticity of the direction.
Purpose of the goal coaching session
A coaching session is a one-on-one process of interaction between two individuals that is based on respect, trust and confidentiality, building a mutual connection, and a conscious assumption of responsibility, which promotes personal growth and creation of the desired result. During the session, a dialogue takes place between the coach and the client as a confidential conversation on the topic “brought in” by the client. It can be a one-off event or an ongoing process that lasts several months, a year, or even longer.
How the goal coaching session works
The coach uses various models and methodologies and asks targeted questions in order to help the client pinpoint the issue at hand, provide clarity, and identify goals, implementation options and time frames. The life coaching session involves clarifying the client’s needs, identifying internal or external conflicts, analyzing problems and looking for solutions.
The outcome of the goal coaching session
The outcome of the coaching session comes through a broader understanding of the situation and your own personality, finding direction, growing mindfulness, and identifying behavioral patterns and limiting beliefs. The transformation occurs when the client takes responsibility for the results of the desired change.
As clients make new sense of themselves and the world, their capabilities, goals and motives change. The internal changes lead to a sense of well-being that depends not on external events, but on how they are interpreted. As your thinking changes, so does your inner state and actions, offering new perspectives and solutions.
