Here's a simple way to identify your present situation across different dimensions/ areas of your life. The "Wheel of Life" diagram on the side has different dimensions of life listed. Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the least and 10 being the most) about how satisfied you are in each of those areas mentioned. A score of 7 or less in any of the areas is an indication that a gap exists in these areas in terms of where you want to be and where you are at present. This substaniates the need for you to start focusing on these areas and spend more of your resources (time and effort) to make substantial progress. At this stage, the Coach would provide you with the much needed professional assistance to work out strategies and take appropriate actions to progress an improve in these areas.
An individual's life operates across multiple dimensions and some of those include Career, Health, Family, Friends, Personal Growth, Spirituality, Physical Environment, Finances and Relationships. To be successful the individual needs to operate as a WHOLE by maintaining balance in all these dimensions.
IMBALANCE in LIFE is what necessitates the "When" and "Why" NEED FOR A COACH. The Coach provides professional assistance to the individual to find clarity in terms of assessing the present situation, identifying the limiting factors holding him/ her back and providing the necessary support to move forward in the identified areas. Through appropriate conversation and feedback, the coach helps the individual to move out of the stuck and stagnant situation and achieve their true potential to BE THEIR BEST.
