The benefits of remote coaching: Even for the video-call sceptics

Hello there, fellow life adventurers! Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, growth, and transformation, all from the comfort of your own sofa? Well, hold onto your virtual hats, because remote coaching is here to sweep you off your feet, even if you've been waving the video call sceptic flag! That's right, my fellow sceptics, it's time to bust out of that pixelated box and embrace the wonders of modern technology. Let's dive into the delightful world of remote coaching and explore the benefits that even the most die-hard video call doubters can't ignore.


The benefits of remote coaching 

1. Pyjamas and progress

Remember those days when you had to actually put on trousers and a bra to leave the house? Well, remote coaching says, "Goodbye, stiff trousers!" and welcomes you with open arms to the world of pyjama-clad breakthroughs. Imagine unravelling your deepest fears and wildest dreams all while wrapped in your cosiest blanket fort. It's like a personal growth pyjama party – the kind your soul has been secretly yearning for. So, sceptics, throw on your favourite jammies and let the self-improvement shenanigans begin!

2. Traffic jam? More like transformation time

Picture this: you're sipping your morning coffee, basking in the glory of your own home, when suddenly, a wild traffic jam appears! Fear not, dear sceptics, for remote coaching turns traffic nightmares into golden opportunities. No more honking horns or stress-induced sweat – just you, your coach, and a digital oasis of self-discovery. So, next time traffic tries to rain on your parade, turn it into your own personal growth parade instead. March on, my friend!

3. Quirky backgrounds, quirkier breakthroughs

Video calls allow you to showcase your personality like never before. That pile of books in the background? Instant conversation starter. The vintage lava lamp? A testament to your timeless wisdom. Remote coaching embraces the quirks that make you, well, you! So, sceptics, go ahead and proudly display your collection of rubber duckies or ironing-mountain – they might just hold the key to unlocking your next big breakthrough.

4. Introvert's paradise

For the introverts among us, remote coaching is the paradise you've been longing for. No more navigating awkward social interactions or deciphering the perfect handshake. With a few clicks, you're transported to a world of deep conversations and meaningful connections, all while sipping on your beverage of choice. So, introverts, rejoice! Your path to personal growth just got a whole lot cosier.

5. Snack attack of enlightenment

Let's face it – life's big questions are best pondered with a snack. Remote coaching lets you indulge in your favourite treats while indulging in even more delicious insights. Whether you're munching on carrot sticks or diving headfirst into a bag of crisps, the world of remote coaching is your oyster – or, more accurately, your charcuterie board.

6. Pets as co-coaches

Who needs a human life coach when you have a furry, four-legged guru by your side? Remote coaching embraces your pets as honorary co-coaches, lending their sage advice in the form of belly rubs and tail wags. Their presence adds an element of joy and authenticity to your coaching sessions that's simply unmatched. So, sceptics, let your pets guide you on this journey of self-discovery – after all, they've been there through the highs and lows, offering unwavering support and unconditional love.

7. Time travel

No, we're not talking about hopping into a DeLorean or hot tub (Hmm, maybe I'm showing my age there) and zipping through the ages. With remote coaching, you get to play the time traveller in a different way – by saving all that commute time. Think about it: those hours spent in transit can now be channelled into activities that fuel your passions and goals. So, sceptics, say hello to more time, more productivity, and more opportunities for personal growth.

So there you have it, fellow adventurers and video-call sceptics! Remote coaching isn't just a trend; it's a ticket to your own personal playground of growth and transformation. Embrace the quirks, relish the comfort of your pyjamas, and let your pets sprinkle their wisdom into your sessions. Whether you're a die-hard introvert, a traffic jam warrior, or just someone who loves a good snack, remote coaching has something special in store for you.

There are a few 'however's' here though. A few things to consider that are sometimes forgotten:

  • Choose your sanctuary. Select a quiet and comfortable space where you can fully focus and engage in your coaching sessions. Make it your personal sanctuary, free from distractions and interruptions. A clutter-free, well-lit room can help create a conducive environment for deep conversations and self-reflection. Also, make sure you aren't going to be overheard. You want to be as free to speak and be open as possible.
  • Time it right. Schedule your remote coaching sessions at a time when you're naturally alert and energised. Avoid early mornings if you're not a morning person or late evenings if you tend to feel drained. Finding the sweet spot when your mind is at its sharpest will enhance your ability to absorb and apply the insights gained from the session.
  • Drop anchor in the right port. Though it might be very tempting to do your coaching session from the comfort of your own bed, choose to be somewhere where you can get up and leave the serious conversations of coaching behind. You don't want to anchor the feeling of having tough conversations with your coach to your cosy duvet.
  • Tech tune-up. Before your session, make sure your tech is up to par. Test your internet connection, microphone, and camera to avoid any technical glitches that might disrupt the flow of your coaching session. A smooth technological experience allows you to fully immerse yourself in the conversation without distractions.

So go forth, sceptics, and explore the world of remote coaching with an open heart and a sense of curiosity. Your journey towards a better you is just a click away, and who knows – you might even find yourself enjoying those video calls sooner than you think. After all, life is an adventure, and with remote coaching, you're the fearless explorer of your own destiny!

Are you ready then for some superb video coaching? Give me a tinkle and we'll get the clapper board out, shout "Action!" and get the cameras rolling.
