People come to a coach because, somewhere in their life, they want to fly. They have the wings: the desire, the capability. What they lack is structure to make it happen. They are continually buffeted by circumstance, or they just float.
The coaching process can provide this structure. Goals structure movement by directing it; accountability structures action by creating habit; concrete tools such as calendars and planners can structure time.
Even the support of the coach is a structure, a constant to count on as the client swings out into unfamiliar territory to try doing things a different way.
They may look the same, but floating is not flying. Flying is an intentional act. Bones in your wings will allow you to soar. And soaring is a choice.
