The Impact of Support

As a coach, I deal with many customers in shift. Some are transitioning to brand-new professions or brand-new environments, others brand-new functions in work/life, and some brand-new methods of being and doing. While modifications like this can happen without help, they flourish when we have assistance.

Assistance can mean different things to different people and in different scenarios. It can appear as somebody to challenge you, hold you liable, share concepts with, be your cheerleader, focus you, recommend you, coach you and provide an ear when you need it.

For me, support means having actually like-minded pals and associates to bounce concepts off of, to assist me see what might be best in front of me, to assist me focus, to challenge me to regularly extend of my convenience zone (yes, I need that too!), and share fun and imaginative experiences with.

Perhaps it is a coworker who works together with you on a brand-new task, or somebody you look for to manage a part of your business or life that you either cannot or do not wish to on your own. Possibly you have pals who challenge you to do more than you think you can, or a coach who holds you responsible for the strategies and objectives you produce. There is no end to the kind of assistance you can get and the places/people you might find it.

Who in your life offers it?

Now that you know more about the assistance you need, where can you find it? What if you do not presently have a person in your life with those characteristics, skills and knowledge? When you know what kind of assistance you truly need, start to consider what type of person – their character, personal qualities, ability, etc. – might offer that level of assistance.
