In a world of such complexity, competitiveness and relentless change, it can be tough just staying where you are. Blue Monday is said to be the most depressing date of the year. As well as the factors I have already mentioned, the cold weather, post-Christmas debt and failure to stick to New Year Resolutions can all lead to a significant drop in motivation and mood. The wish for things to be different are matched only by a lack of energy or ability to make it happen.
I recently watched a TED Talk which was about coaching called ‘Want to Get Good at Something? Get a Coach’. The speaker talks about how it was used to save lives in the third world and it got me thinking about all the ways that coaching can help people like you.
