Do you often change to get ‘away from’ or to get ‘towards’? The axe of change explains how people vary. Some people tend to wait for real pain and dissatisfaction in their lives to seek change to get away from the pain. While others seek happiness and peak performance and hence they seek the change in order to get towards their life purpose. And though both types seek change, many might fail to reach their desired outcomes. Equipped with skills, a coach works as a facilitator for change helping the clients to identify the real reasons that are creating the pain, or the inner and outer resources that would mobilise them, and hence reaching real results instead of just dealing with the events happening on the surface.
