You want to become a Greator coach? But there are so many questions burning under your nails right now? We have our Greator Coach-trainers Christina Grahn-Hommelsheim and Walter Hommelsheim cross-examined.
Why did you become coaches?
"We want to support people in making more of themselves," says Christina. Because sometimes, she says, it's only one or two adjusting screws that you may turn in order to already bring about a positive change in your life. "If you have understanding for what has been, what might still be there, and a great will to change everything - then you can make a difference. Coaching the shortcut," Walter is convinced. It goes much faster if you have support in the form of coaching. More and more people are discovering that!
What does it mean to be a coach?
Be willing to look at yourself!
Discovering your blind spots and resolving them!
The moment you arrive more at yourself, you can convey to the other person much more credibly that it is possible to effect change. If you have done this with yourself and achieved it, then you know:
how to do it
as a coach you can also take your client with you on this journey
Another prerequisite is, of course, an interest in the human being and in the connections - which we may not yet understand - why we co-create our lives.
What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
"Therapy is about treating mental illness. That's not within the scope of the coach's job," Walter clarifies. "With coaching, the coach addresses a client's day-to-day concerns."
How does coaching work?
"You may come to your coach with any issue. Through the right questioning techniques, we take a closer look. Golden rule: "We as coaches do not give advice to the client, but ask questions to find out the exact topic and the reason for the visit", Christina informs.
Who would you recommend coaching to?
"Anyone who has an issue!" the coaching couple agrees. Walter, for example, came to coaching in the first place via a life crisis. Coaching - he and Christina think - can always support you. No matter what point you are at in your life. No matter whether you are a company boss or a mother.

Also for Christina and Walter, who met ten years ago as a Seminar leader met at work, it was initially a challenge to work together as a couple. Christina remembers: "We asked ourselves the question, are we really authentic with what we tell and how we give ourselves? To ensure that this is the case during a seminar or coaching session, for example, we use our own tools!"
