Yesterday, I was having a drink with a friend, colleague and co-founder of the Young Financial Planners' Organisation, and he asked, "Do you know why I bought a bike, why I'm playing electric guitar, and why I'm enjoying life so much? Because a year and a half, when you coached me that one time, you asked me what I do for fun. That was the most powerful question anyone's ever asked me because I didn't realise until then how obsessed I was with work and studies, that I was losing myself. This question stuck with me since that day."
I clearly remember asking him that question but didn't realise the impact at the time.
But he couldn't stop thinking about it.
A year and a half later his life has literally changed, and he's a much happier person.
All because of once coaching session. One question. A question that simply reflected his life back to him.
That's the power of coaching.
