This week, during one of my coaching sessions, one of my clients took a bit of a mental detour. It happens to all of us. Including myself.

At times like this, its my job as a coach to remember the client's goals and point them back in the right direction. The client determined the destination and its my job to help them stay on track. It's my job to keep them focused; eyes on the prize that awaits them.

I love this quote from my colleague, Chris Heinz. "Coaching is helping people to account for their current situation, envision a better future, identify their obstacles, and make plans to get there. Coaching is delivering self awareness, increasing emotional intelligence, launching people into their calling and vocation, and improving relationships. Coaching is doing a whole lot of good".

What attitudes or mindsets are detouring you this week that a coach might help with?
