Coaching is a personal development methodology, with a set of techniques that allow the individual to achieve his goals. It can be used in the most different fields and uses neuro linguistic programming techniques (NLP), positive psychology, action training, among others, always in a personalized way by adapting to each individual objective and belief. This is why SELF-KNOWLEDGE is one of the 5 advantages of coaching in the image consulting process.
In image consulting, coaching is a powerful ally because it helps us to obtain more in-depth information on the true objectives, beliefs and values of the client. For this reason, ESR image consulting training goes far beyond creating a stylish look with the right colours. We work alos on the client’s personal development. When we realize that image can be a vector for instrumental transformation, we realize how coaching techniques can really improve the process in this direction.
Benefits of Coaching for Image Consulting
Among the advantages of coaching applied to image consulting, we work with:
SELF-KNOWLEDGE: the tools are conducive to self-knowledge. Thanks to effective questions and techniques, coaching brings questions that the client often does not ask, such as: their tastes, the analysis of their choices when dressing, their priorities.
SELF-ESTEEM: Gaining self-esteem, thanks to coaching techniques, also occurs in several ways. One is non-judgment – the basic premise of this methodology. The emphasis on the positive, the respect for the taste of the customer are also applied through the techniques, in a specific way, and which guarantee this advantage. By identifying the style and their tastes, the customer begins to see themselves as a unique person, without the external labels and thus begins to appreciate and understand what makes sense to them.
AUTONOMY: the coaching process encourages, through its techniques, autonomy, personal responsibility. Which in the end serves all aspects of our lives. It can be learned in image consulting, but in fact it affects all aspects of the lifestyle.
FOCUS ON THE OBJECTIVE: the whole coaching process is based on achieving a goal. In the case of image consulting, we can even have several. Of course, sometimes this definition of a goal is not simple, so it is accompanied by a process of self-knowledge.
We also consider that we do not build an image at random, or simply on the basis of external factors – like Fashion. Indeed it is important that your client is seen, perceived by others for what he really is and that he realizes the benefits on his lifestyle.
IN ACTION: Coaching strengthens us and provides us with guidelines for action. The movement of change, of action, allows us to feel a sense of accomplishment and ownership in transformation and improvement.
We have become agents of our image construction. And it is one of the coaching techniques in this process, often used. These are some of the results of the image consulting process, based on the coaching methodology.
Creating the image with coaching techniques means understanding that we are working with personal development, using clothing as a means of expression. This is why it is important to understand them well and master them in order to be able to apply them perfectly. In this process, our communication goes far beyond the verbal, and empathy and connection are essential. Therefore, the more the resources improve our performance in this regard, the better the results.
