Sometimes when we disagree with someone or need to confront a difficult conversation, we either shut down or speak aggressively. A personal peace coach helps you clarify and fully consider the situation so that you may approach it confidently with clarity, compassion, and curiosity. Coaching helps you focus on your future result and create a plan to show up as your best self in those challenging moments. Whether you call it conflict coaching or peace coaching, a personal coach helps you move from a place of conflict to peace.
Examples of Coaching Situations
Family gatherings weigh on you, whether you dread a political or religious discussion, or the same past conversation. Who can you be in those moments while clearly speaking your truth and showing compassion?
Someone offers to help with organizational project, although history suggests the person may not follow through. What can you say and do to clarify expectations, while showing gratitude and compassion for the offer?
Who Does Coaching Help?
Spouses/Partners, children, In-laws, siblings, parents, or grandparents
Business owners, human resource professionals, or employees.
Members and leaders of charitable, philanthropic, or religious organizations
And anyone else involved in a dispute.
What Happens In Coaching?
What happens when you believe a person should say or do things differently? The thoughts of good or bad, right or wrong, should or should not generally precede a disagreement or conflict.
A peace coach helps you bring clarity to your thoughts and actions about the moment.
How do you feel when your needs are met? What happens when your needs are not met? Feelings of anger, frustration, or disappointment, usually signify an unmet need. A peace coach helps you consider the underlying needs and keep focus on the result you wish to create.
What determines how you show up in any given moment? Is it other people, circumstances, or situations?
You decide who you are and how you show up regardless of anyone else's behavior. A peace coach helps create a plan to show up as your most confident, compassionate, and best self.
"I work with a coach, who teaches me tools to increase my physical strength. This coaching helps me show up as a better version of myself. As a coach, I offer people the tools and confidence to approach challenging conversations with clarity, compassion, and curiosity. I love hearing from clients about the positive difference coaching makes in their personal and professional lives."
