Decision coaching is a very specific form of coaching that is focused on one thing: Helping you make a decision.
When you work with me, the decision you probably want to make is: What do I do about my marriage? Do I stay married and work on things? Or do I get a divorce?
That question is deceptively simple.
That’s because divorce is full of uncertainty. It’s also incredibly personal. So, even if you’re amazingly accomplished in your work life, deciding what to do about your home life can paralyze you. What’s worse, if you don’t actively DO something to break that paralysis, you can stay stuck in indecision for YEARS.
What is a Decision Coach?
A decision coach is exactly what it sounds like: a specially trained professional who helps you make a decision. If that sounds strange to you, I’m not surprised.
Most people don’t think of getting a coach to help them decide what to do with their marriage.
But if you’ve been stuck in indecision for years (or decades!), then you know just how miserable it feels to be caught in an endless loop of “should I stay, or should I go?” You’re not happy or even satisfied in your marriage. At the same time, you’re terrified about what getting a divorce would mean.
Most of all, you don’t want to make a mistake. You don’t want to make the WRONG decision. You don’t want to have any regrets.
So you do nothing. You decide nothing. And nothing changes.
The problem is that the longer you live in limbo, the harder it is to leave it.
A decision coach can help you break out of your indecision so that you can start LIVING your life. … because, whether you’re willing to admit it or not, while you’re constantly agonizing over whether or not you should stay married, you’re not really living your life.
You’re just existing.
How Does Decision Coaching Work?
Decision coaching (or at least GOOD decision coaching) is based on the science of decision making. It is based on brain research and neuroscience.
Decision coaching takes you through a PROCESS whereby you discover how to dive deeply into yourself so that you can identify what you truly want. You figure out what’s getting in your way. And then you start working on ways to work WITH yourself so that you can overcome your blocks, rather than letting them stop you.
Decision coaching also involves a bit of divorce coaching and relationship coaching as well. That’s because, in order to make a decision you are confident in, you have to KNOW your options.
You have to understand the basics about how divorce really works, and what you probably will (and won’t!) face if you go down that road. You also have to know what your options are for working on your marriage, too.
Only when you are first fully informed about your options can you figure out which one is best for you.
Otherwise, you won’t make a decision that you feel good about.
Do You Need a Decision Coach?
Not everyone needs a decision coach.
While deciding whether to get a divorce is challenging for almost everyone, there’s a big difference between being stuck in indecision for a few weeks and not being able to make a decision about your marriage for few years.
Struggling with this kind of decision for a few days or even a few months is totally normal. Getting divorced is HUGE! Making a huge decision responsibly takes time.
But when the time it takes you to make this decision stretches from months into years, there’s usually more going on. You’re no longer just trying to investigate your options. You’re stuck.
That’s when working with a decision coach can be a game-changer.
