A coaching joke? (14 September 2011)

OK, a coaching joke for you (maybe the only coaching joke.....): how many coaches does it take to change a light bulb? Answer: only one, but the light bulb has to want to change. Geddit?!

The serious point (here we go.....) is that coaching can only work if the client is committed to making some change happen, and doing the actions. You may come to coaching with only a vague sense that you'd prefer things to be different; that's OK, it is partly up to your coach to help you define exactly what it is you want, and then what actions you'll need to take to get it. But at some point you're going to have to find the will and commitment to change things. That's why I say that you are the only person who can change your life - I or any coach can only help if you want your life to be different.

A good coach, though, will help you find the commitment!

all the best
