As coaches, we receive something very precious: our clients’ trust. They rely on us to be honest and non-judgemental partners on their way to their best selves – be that in a work or personal context. We owe it to them, and to ourselves, to take our profession seriously.
This is the very idea that lies at the core of this practice – whatever inner demons we are fighting in our lives are in fact potential teachers. Even illness can be a powerful teacher, if we treat it as such.
