MARIA'S PHILOSOPHY OF COACHING
Coaching is key to mindfulness, and mindfulness helps us to better manage ourselves.
Out of everything else, we can control ourselves the most. Our thoughts, emotions, feelings, and actions are parts of one system. Coaching helps us to see connections between them, to understand why they appear, and, most importantly, to find a way to change one element so the whole system changes. Thus, we become stronger and more effective.
The coaching relationship is a partnership that enables the coachee to create a clear vision of their goals and a roadmap to reach these goals. It is very inspiring to be a part of that change!
