Coaching for Sustainable Change

Change. It seems that now, more than ever, the saying “change is the only thing that is constant” is ringing true for just about everyone. Organizations, the workforce, the type of work being done and the methods used to get work done are all changing at an ever increasing rate. In this environment what is needed is a way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable change; a leadership approach that is adaptable to internal and external change.


We believe that when coaching is an integral part of leadership, where the coachee is supported in deeper discovery and new awareness, is exactly what is needed for sustainable change. Why? Because this method involves a continuum of conversations and interactions between coach and coachee that are specifically designed to help the individual tap into his/her own internal resources and potential to find practical strategies and solutions to specific challenges. The coachee is uncovering his/her potential to achieve peak performance.


This is why we, at Coaching Out of the Box®, put an emphasis not only on the skills and steps used in coaching but on the fundamental principles and tools necessary to support the coachee’s in their discovery and awareness process. Over and over again we are told by participants in our coaching programs how profoundly their lives have been impacted.

In order to create sustainable change you need know how to:

  • Get to the root source
  • Bring awareness to areas a coachee may be blind to seeing
  • Identify resistance to change – what to listen for and questions to ask
  • Coach someone who is playing a role that no longer serves them
  • Identify what your coachee is passionate about and how to step into that

Without this work, and the courage and confidence to do it, not much will happen. Yes, there may be some immediate short term results but for long term sustainable change you have got to do the deeper dive and you’ve got to come to coaching with a mindset that will support it.


In our next FREE webinar we will be discussing this very important topic and supporting you in understanding what is required to coach for sustainable change.
