Why do coaching approaches fail? Coaching doesn't always make sense!

There is no one right approach to coaching, coaching always is individually. First, the coach should clarify the current situation with his coachee, "where am I right now and what drives me"?

Then you should think about a realistic goal and realize that some goals just need time. A change is a "reprogramming" that requires a certain amount of patience. Also read our article about the Nonviolent Communication.

Do I also have to talk about my private life during coaching?

A good coach examines different aspects of the individual. The moon has a light side and a dark side that we cannot see. If you only illuminate one side, the second half remains hidden. Coaching doesn't always make sense! It is the coach's job to work with you to find this out.

But I don't want to reveal all topics to the coach, is that okay?

Unfortunately no, a coach can only work with you on your issues if you are willing to open up. This is why trust is so essential to any relationship. This also applies to the relationship between coach and coachee. The art of coaching is to connect points and to generate recommendations for action from them. However, if relevant information is kept hidden from the coach, then the coach cannot ask the right questions and the coachee cannot draw the right conclusions.
