The purpose of a priority coaching session is to elucidate the point of your activities, understand what is most important, and analyze your needs and goals.
Setting priorities for your job, creative work, free time, and personal and social life helps to improve productivity, find work-life balance, and distribute resources harmoniously.
We often face situations where, looking at the endless to-do list, we are overcome with anxiety or even fear when we think about how we will ever get everything done on time. Many of us have probably tried a few time management measures, planning techniques and tools just to fulfill our obligations before a burning deadline. However, this kind of rushing often ends in procrastination or burnout.
Priority coaching sessions are not about acquiring yet another time management tool. The purpose is to elucidate the point of your activities, understand what is most important, and analyze your needs and goals.
Priority 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 priority 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 priority 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.
