The "Moses" Concept
I have observed that most people, myself included, have had a series of “moses-type*” people in their lives. I like the concept of Moses. I am sure you are familiar with the biblical story of Moses. He lead his people out of Egypt and guided them, taught them the skills they needed, and spiritually advised them as they traveled through the desert to the Promised Land. Then, for ethereal reasons (he got on God’s bad side), he was not allowed to walk through the gates and into the land with them.
Our personal moses* all have these similar characteristics: They appear for a specific part of our life’s journeys; they guide us, teach us the skills we need; provide emotional and possibility spiritual guidance and support but do not walk with us through the gates to the next phase of our lives. I find that as a coach, people usually connect with me at a time in their lives when, to have a “moses*” is just what they need.
*(I am not equating the Sage, Moses with me or anyone else. I just am usuing the story as an analogy.)
To paraphrase the ancient saying of “When the student is ready, the teacher appears,” I have found that when soon-to-be clients are ready for a coach, we somehow meet. Since you are checking out my website, you are probably ready for coaching. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up a free 1/2 hour phone coaching consultation where we can explore the possibilities of my being your coach.
