Coaching helps enhance self-awareness in many ways. Let me share with you a recent example.
I have been coaching a senior corporate leader on his leadership development journey.
As part of his action commitments he has taken up daily self-analysis where he reviews his entire day in the evening and asks himself a couple of questions.
What did I do well today?
What can I do better tomorrow?
In our coaching session a few days back, he said, “Hemant, I discovered something amazing about myself.” I asked, “And what is that?” He said, “I became aware that I have not been reading much these days. Till a couple of years back, I used to read books regularly and now there is a long break. I was wondering what happened and I found my answer in a very surprising way.” Now, I could not wait to hear the next part of his story.
He continued, “The only time I get to relax or read is typically at the end of the day before going to bed. We changed the room interiors & lighting a couple of years back and now I find the light too low for me to read and hence slowly I stopped reading without me even realizing. With the inquiring mind, there, right there, I found the reason of me not reading much these days. Ah, that was like an “Eureka” moment for me. I am going to fix the lighting in my room, buy a bunch of books and start reading from next week.”
His face was glowing with happiness and enthusiasm.
