“I couldn’t have done it without you”

I recently received a text from a client who had just been offered their ideal job, the one they had been working towards for the previous few years. The client ended the text with “I couldn’t have done it without you”. I was of course delighted with such good news but the truth is the client had done all the work. In this case the client had suffered a professional set-back a few months previously and their ideal job suddenly seemed completely out of reach. Their confidence had suffered just at a pivotal juncture in their professional life. Our coaching sessions helped the client focus on what was needed at that time and take the actions that would help position them with the best possible chance of being successful. The client did all the work but coaching was the right help at the right time.
