Destination Edition Editors Letter

For 3 years, Coaching Life has been publishing stories, tips and the best coaching information from Australia and around the world.

We have seen some amazing advances and shared incredible knowledge but I realise now that this has been just the tip of the iceberg.

The advances that I have seen recently in the field of human potential have left me shocked.

The technology and growth potential we, as coaches, have access to is unprecedented in human history.

If you are already a great coach, you know that constant learning is part of the job. The pace of that learning is accelerating and those coaches that embrace this will help shape the world as we know it.

So what are all these new technologies? Biotech, Nanotech, Cybernetics and Microbiomics are leading the way. Since the early sixties, Neuroscience has been advancing our understanding of the brain but this field is now expanding and working with all these other fields to show humans as an integrated (coachable) unit.

While these individual advances continue to astonish, they should also be approached with a healthy dose of scepticism.

As a coach, I approach any new idea or technology with the same question. Will this work for my clients and does it help achieve their outcomes?

I now actively use information discovered in the field of Enteric Neuroscience because it helps my clients deal with anxiety much more effectively.

Other research, while interesting, is useless or only creates minor advances in a few clients.

As a coach, you know that learning is part of the job description and that is why Coaching Life exists.

If you know of breakthrough technology or techniques that can be applied to coaching, get in touch and share the knowledge.

Together we can improve coaching and outcomes for everyone.

Happy Coaching.
