So what is Coaching anyway?
If you go to the gym and get a personal trainer, you know they’ll support, encourage and ultimately enable you to achieve your fitness goals using the best motivational techniques and latest industry know how. And so it goes with Coaching. Think of it as a spin class for your mind. Personal Coaches support, encourage and motivate you to get what you want out of your life using all the latest science, tricks and strategies that they know works. So if you want the fitness to do a a half marathon, go to see a Personal Trainer, but if you want to find the motivation, go and see a Personal Coach.
Ok, but how is all that possible?
We’ll do that by Speed Coaching. That’s being Coached by up to 5 of our amazing Guerrilla coaches, each with their own unique expertise, insight and life experience of their own. Like Speed Dating it’s a social, informal experience and you get the chance to hop from one Personal Coach to another, airing your ideas, gaining new insights and courage. With 3 three coaches, plus 2 group coaching models you’ll get different styles, different questioning and a chance to unpack and really explore your thinking from every possible angle.
There’s plenty of evidence around too that supports the effectiveness of these faster sessions. Coaches are primed to cut through, separating the wheat from the chaff. There’s energy and dynamism. Teresa Klasener, Guerrilla’s founder has coached many 15 minute and 30 minute sessions - way shorter than the usual 60 or 90 minute ones - and is always amazed at the quality of the interactions.
“The apparent lack of time, actually enables you to be even more focussed on listening. As soon as you start, you’re locked on, building trust and empathy actively focussing on solutions. Theres a really energy in the room”
Roxanna, who was coached for 15 minutes at Women of the Word WOW Event, by Teresa had this feedback:
“To be honest Teresa, I found our chat to be completely not what I expected in a really great way! I found it really empowering to speak to you and hear you have confidence in me (even without really knowing me.) I spoke to you about thinking about applying for art therapy and I am happy to tell you that I am mid way through my application and am applying for September! So yes, I did find it very effective and supportive- Thank you!! “
Get your tickets on Eventbrite, then come along on Friday 11 May, from 7pm at Conway Hall, Holborn. There’s a bar and lots of warm, engaging Guerrillas
So now, what’s stopping you?
Thanks to resident Guerrilla Barry for kicking us off with our first blog. Amongst all the Coaching and People Development we do, we're taking on Identity Coaching as our personal crusade. It'll all make sense when you've read the blog but in a nutshell ... why not live the life you deserve to live? Be the person you are? Everybody else is taken.
