I’ve been enjoying reading Michael Neill’s Super Coach book. It’s been recapping, summarising and reinforcing all I’ve been learning about the inside out approach to life taught by Sydney Banks.
In the introduction, Michael describes the difference between coaching in the horizontal dimension - assisting a client to get from point A to point B and the vertical dimension, deepening their understanding of themselves and life so they have greater access to inspiration and inner wisdom.
Most people think of coaches working at the horizontal level, helping clients address a particular situation or achieve a change. They know we help clients get clear on what they really want, facilitate planning and hold them accountable to taking agreed actions.
