I was asked this question recently.
The biggest difficultly comes if people think that I am going to give them the answers, create the plan and/or do the work for them.
Managing peoples’ expectations and explaining the difference between coaching and mentoring is a key part of my initial conversations with people.
As a coach, my role is to be objective and non-directive, to draw ideas and actions out of the client. As coaching expert Nancy Klein says in her book 'Time to Think', "Usually the brain that contains the problem also contains the solutions - often the best one."
If you are a creative professional looking for ongoing support and accountability, book a Clarity Call and let's start a conversation.
