Thanks for the A2A!
I will start off by saying that I have a bias here, as I *am* a trained coach, and among the many things I do, I am paid by people to help them uncover their abilities and interests.
In order to be able to do that for others, I have paid coaches to help me understand mine, so I could best serve others. Whereas I become further trained in how to coach as well as coached, the end result is he same:
I feel it is absolutely worth the money.
Here’s an example – two years ago, I was someone who would refuse to be in public. I literally hid my
online activities behind a pseudonym and a cartoon avatar so that no one (publicly) would know the work I did, because I was comfortable knowing that the job was done well, and I don’t care about credit.
Through coaching, I learned it was ok to come forward – as myself – and offer what I had been hiding, and it didn’t mean I was egotistical to step on stage and speak, or to sign an article with my byline,
or even – gasp – write a book about myself (the ultimate in hubris). When I understood that my context is to serve and help people, as it always has been, I was able to reframe the negative thoughts and transform myself.
Coaching did that for me.
It can for you, too.
