Learning from Life – The Importance of Coaching

From my experience, learning to see and to respond in more life giving ways does not happen by only reading books or attending one workshop. The learning comes from becoming a better observer and becoming more thoughtful in family and work relationships. And, it is truly a life-long project. Yet, with practice one can begin to think in new ways and to live with more intention. As this work can be both rewarding and difficult, I find that enlisting a coach or joining a coaching group can offer guidance as new behaviors are explored and new discoveries unfold. I consider the coaching process to be an invaluable resource for the systems journey.
