Is Relationship Coaching Necessary?
How Relationships determine success
Relationships are an integral part of life, be it personal or professional. People thrive on healthy and cordial relationships that help them connect and build a strong bond with others. However, not all relationships are perfect, and at times, they require guidance and support to flourish. Here enters relationship coaching, which is a powerful tool used by individuals to better understand and improve their relationships.
Relationship coaching provides a supportive and safe environment where an individual can share their concerns and work collaboratively with a trained professional coach. Coaching sessions help identify relationship patterns, explore communication skills, and develop strategies to improve the quality of your relationships.
The benefits of relationship coaching extend beyond personal relationships and can help improve professional relationships. Effective communication, conflict resolution, and strong interpersonal skills learned through relationship coaching can enhance team dynamics and productivity. Building strong relationships with customers, friends, family and a good self-relationship ultimately leads to success in all areas of life.
One of the key failures of a person is the lack of the ability to build and maintain good relationships. At 17, I was homeless. Developing the skill of building rapport with others on the streets is what kept me safe during those cold dark nights in London. Little did I realise that this same skill, would create success in every area of my life.
Relationship coaching is a valuable investment that should never be overlooked. Some people are born with a natural affinity to building instant rapport and maintaining a good relationship with others – we call this type of person a ‘people person’. The good news is, that this skill can be mastered by anyone. In truth, you don’t need a coach to help you learn how to connect with others. I certainly wasn’t coached. My ability arose out of a natural need to keep me safe. I continued to hone this skill due to the various people focused job roles I had over the years. This same skill is what lead me to obtaining over 100k in followers in 8 months with seemingly minimum effort. It’s taken me over 20 years to develop and continue to perfect this skill.
Of course there is a shortcut to success in this area… Relationship Coaching! With the help of a Relationship coach, individuals can unlock their potential to create healthier, happier and more fulfilling relationships, both personally, professionally and in a much shorter time-frame than it took me.
A closer look at the impact of poor relationships
The person who has a poor/stressful relationship with their spouse or children, is 85% more likely to perform poorly professionally as they carry this stress into the work place. The person who has a poor working relationship with their colleagues or manager will carry this stress home to their family and friends. Stress can quickly lead to depression and other ill-health conditions. Finally, the person who has no relationship with themselves, will have no direction in life – that is, they will have difficulty understanding themselves and finding their rightful place in the world.
The person who has a strong self-relationship understands himself/herself. This person knows exactly what he/she wants at all times on life’s journey. The person who has an exceptional relationship with his/her spouse will be able to face many difficulties (and succeed). The person who has a strong relationship with his/her colleagues – is able to perform well at work and achieve the company’s objectives (without getting too stressed out).
