My coaching sessions were focused on finding a support network as a new UNOG staff member and a new team leader. We explored this from different angles, with the coach asking probing, open questions. The reflection process was not always easy or comfortable, but the sessions always ended on a specific idea that allowed me to move forward. After a few sessions we agreed that we had completed our exploration but that I could get in touch with the coach if I needed her help in the future. The non-judgmental process of coaching reduced my stress level, increased my self-confidence and allowed me to start working on what mattered to me.
