One point review about Coaching

Picking up the idea about what we have this afternoon on Coaching, I found this point is interesting.

For coaching to be occur, we need to have a safe environment, as people are going to explore their weaknesses or failures to others, normally it makes people feel embarrassing.

Cover and ShXt

People are kind of animal that sometimes want to cover themselves to let everyone looks they are good, but in fact they are facing a lot of problems maybe life is in a mess(or probably what they think are in a mess). Just as the graph shows, a person in the middle but with shXt surround him (sorry about language but it is an exact example), as he can see around him is full of shXt, he need to cover himself by a shinny shell, so that everyone else looks he is a shinny person. The job for coaching is to break a hole through that shinny shell to improve what's inside, no wonder we need a safe environment as coaching, in this degree, is trying to break the self-protection layer.

On the other hand it makes me think about the real circumstances and help me to build confidence, as people always feel how good others are and how bad themselves are, but in fact everyone has a shinny cover which they can't see whilst what they can see is only the layer inside the cover which is shXt. As confidence is an important factor of leadership, I think this example would make you think and develop your confidence.
