Transformational Coaching

Jun 11, 2019 | Grow Your Business

My name is Patience Ogunbona, “just call me Patience”.  I am a Transformational Coach, Business Trainer, Inspirational Speaker and Author.  When I say “just call me Patience”, that’s huge for me. In the past, I hated my name and hated myself. People would say, “that’s a lovely name, why did they give you that and are you really patient?”. I felt it was patronising and it affected my self-esteem.

How many Sarahs’ or Jacks’ get asked the same question? I had two options, change my name or look deep within for who Patience truly is, learn to love her, help her live her best life.

With the help of various self-help and development materials, Coaches, Mentors and Role Models, I choose the harder route and did the latter. These key people in my life were catalyst for Transformation. They empowered me to discover and live as my true self.

Today! I truly love Patience, I let her express herself and I give her permission to be, do and have. No apologies, no excuses. I let her passionately chase her dreams. This me today, this Patience loves her name and can truly say “Yes! my name is lovely” and through my transformative journey, I have learnt to be truly patient and still keep learning to be so”.

My calling, mission and passion in life is to:

  1. Help Clients find themselves
  2. Help Clients live authentically and courageously
  3. Help Clients build a life, business or careers that is in alignment with what they truly want, and congruent to who they are, so they can operate from a place of strength and stability.

What is Transformational Coaching?

Many have asked me, what does a Transformational Coach do?

I feel this is my opportunity to explain and help you better see how you can gain great benefit from my services, which from client’s feedback is quite transformational.

Simply put a Transformational Coach serves as a catalyst for change and transformation in your life.

Transformational coaching is one option for seeking self-development. However, in reality, it is more like a gateway where you step onto a travellator speeding you along to where you want to go. It is the vessel for change and accessing all that you need to achieve that.

Speak to any young person, older child, or teen, and you’re likely to hear reference to dreams, hopes, and aspirations for their future. These are hugely personal, and, likely emotive.

The person is invested in what they want to do and achieve. However, speak to those same individuals at age 40 and many will have lost their way. Mundanity took over. The dreams, hopes, and aspirations never went away – they go buried, bypassed, perhaps partially achieved.

In essence, transformational coaching is the process of transition to get you once more aligned with your dreams, hopes, and aspirations.

It focuses on rediscovering who you actually are. What makes you tick? What inspires you? What are your values?  What are you good at? How can you create sustainable change? Putting you back in touch with who you really are, so that you can achieve those goals.

Therefore, transformational coaching will look different to different people. For some it will be about boosting self-esteem, for others it might be assessing the truth of negative beliefs about their limitations and for some it will be about getting their entrepreneur dreams aligned to who they are and making it profitable.

What Does a Transformational Coach Do?

People seek coaching for different reasons. You are probably relatively familiar with the difference between a life coach and a performance coach. Transformational coaching is more of an umbrella term, and the approach can be used for a variety of coaching needs. For example, relationship difficulties are as much the bread and butter of a transformational coach as career progression difficulties. It’s about the individual client.

Essentially, talking – therapeutically – is the primary act of the coaching and client relationship. It is through guided talking and active listening on the part of the transformational coach, that the coach is able to facilitate progress and change. Therefore, a typical coaching session will involve a two-way dialogue.

However, within this the transformational coach is actively working more attentively than you could expect from a mentor, friend, or partner.

The transformational coach is actively listening to the entire communication – from body language and unspoken thoughts to the content of the words themselves. They are a quest-seeker helping to identify the areas that need addressing to enable self-development.

This means that a transformational coaching relationship can only be founded on trust and authenticity. It can be difficult, uncomfortable, and even painful to uncover bad habits, negative beliefs, poor self-image, and the roots of self-limitation. However, in so doing, your coach leads you back into touch with your true self, enabling positive change.

At its core, transformational coaching is client-focused and will work with you, in the way that you need, to achieve your goals.

Why Do You Need Transformational Coaching?

Anyone who is feeling confused, dissatisfied with an area of their life, or even lost, needs a transformational coach.

This is because not being our true selves, and not achieving our hopes and aspirations, has a hugely negative effect on us. It also tends to create a vicious circle effect whereby the spiral only continues downwards, exacerbating the problem, and taking us further and further from our life aims. The converse – where we realise our hopes and aspirations – leads to fulfilment and a sense of satisfaction and joy.
