Interview with Lydia Boschetti

What is the job of coach?

A coach is a professional who accompanies a "coachee" (client) in a self-discovery process so that he or she can find solutions and strategies to resolve their conflicts or achieve their goals. The coachee is responsible for their actions and develop their own strategy according to their "world map" and their needs. The coach does not give solutions, the coach uses questions so that the "coachee" can discover the answers that are inside him and identify resources that he will use to reach his goal. The coachee is the expert in his life, that is why it is he who develops this plan of action accompanied by his coach.

What benefits does coaching have for the client that requests this type of service?

Through coaching the client can achieve their goals much easier and faster than trying alone because the coach is trained to use techniques that serve to free all those talents and resources that the client has inside.

Coaching has no official regulation so that anyone can be a coach How can we differentiate a professional coach? What skills or abilities does a good coach have to have?

It is true, coaching is not regulated, however there are many organizations that certify people who want to be a coach. This is a profession that is based on great moral value. Continuing education, commitment to excellence and passion for your work are indispensable elements within the qualities that every coach should have. He must develop excellent communication skills, empathy, unconditional acceptance and a positive attitude, seeing his clients with possibilities and being committed to the process generating harmony and affinity. The coach must be in harmony with his inner self, knowing that he will work with people who need an emotionally stable and self-motivated professional.

What set of techniques do you usually apply to each client? Are there different techniques according to the specific concern of the client?

Yes, there are multiple techniques to be used depending on each case and each client. For example, I work with neurolinguistic programming and I use visualization, Ericksonian hypnosis, questions, kinesiology, identify beliefs, metamodels and I compare them, I use the Milton model, anchors, the presuppositions of NLP, among other powerful techniques.

What advice would you give someone who is starting in the world of coaching?

That they be educated with certified professionals, that they belong to associations related to coaching and that they become professionals who put the name and reputation of coaching on high with an insatiable desire for education and excellence.

Another of your specialties, as you have been commenting, is NLP. Tell us, what are the fundamental pillars of Neuro-Linguistic Programming?

NLP has four fundamental pillars: Competency or Rapport, Sensory Awareness, Thinking of Results and Behavior Flexibility.

The Rapport it is that good relationship that develops with other people and with ourselves. That good relationship implies trust, understanding, security and respect. It is part of the skills that a good coach must master.

Sensory awareness is that ability to be able to perceive, through the senses, that information that is being sent through verbal and non-verbal language. They are sensory perceptions that must be decoded and interpreted correctly.

Thinking about results is to execute all our actions taking into account the final product. For this it is necessary to define where we want to go, by then, develop a route, an action plan that takes us to that final product in the most efficient and effective way possible, in the shortest time.

Behavioral flexibility can be summarized as follows: Do you want different results? You must do different things ... Through the flexibility of behavior, we have the freedom to do things in different ways until we obtain the desired result. As NLP says, failure does not exist, what exist are results.

NLP is becoming very fashionable, why do you think it is becoming so popular?

Because NLP is a powerful technique to obtain short-term results. In addition, it brings together techniques from other disciplines that makes it a complete and varied.

To finish, lately we have seen that you dedicate part of your time to record videos for YouTube in which you talk about different experiences. When and why did you have the idea of ​​recording videos?

I've been recording videos for over ten years. Thanks to YouTube and Facebook I have been able to reach more and more people. I understand that this medium is an easy, powerful and accessible one for many. It is an excellent way to express thoughts and messages verbally and non-verbally. So people who see and hear can better understand the concepts and can save them for future reference. I love what I do, I understand that it is part of the purpose that I have in this life and the result and the answers of the people fill me with a lot of satisfaction.
