Workshop: Dissolving Resistance to Coaching
Coaching has a spotty track record
Failure is the norm. Research findings indicate failure rates
for coaching can run as high as 80% to 90%.
Resistance to change is the culprit
Coaching means "pressure to change." Change is what
the coach is hired to facilitate - to help clients make some
modifications in how they think and act.
However, whenever anyone feels pressure to change, a part
of them says "I don't want to do it, even if it will
be good for me." (Have you ever listened to a heavy smoker
explain why stopping is not necessary?) This is resistance
to change in action.
Resistance to Coaching is universal
Resistance occurs whether the pressure comes from others or
from within the clients themselves. Resistance occurs regardless
of they type of coaching involved.
Dissolving Resistance to Coaching is the solution
