Your coaching relationship will be unlike any other in your professional life. Your coach is not a mentor, consultant, or teacher. They are a thinking partner working with you to create change through conversation. This is a dynamic relationship that can be a source of joy alongside powerful change and progress.
We care about confidentiality. This means that your coach will protect your privacy and not report any of the content of your coaching conversations to any other person. They won’t even tell anyone else that they are acting as your coach, unless you give them permission to do so. This is the basis for a relationship full of trust, honesty, and respect.
It’s important to us that the coaching is business relevant and supports your success in the workplace. In fact, Brightlife was founded out of a desire to improve people’s experience of being at work. This means that your Brightlife coach is not a ‘professional friend’ – instead, they are a conversational changemaker that you engage to ensure you make progress towards things that matter to you and your organization. This may mean that as part of the coaching agreement, your line manager or HR Business Partner will be asked to share their hopes and aspirations for the coaching. We believe this information will be useful for you.
