What Suzie Doscher - Executive and Life Coach, Zurich, Switzerland - Says about Personal Development Coaching
In my experience over all well-being and emotional intelligence are linked, it is hard to have one without the other. It is good to know the skills required to grow emotionally can be developed.
The ability to, not only access your intuition - that gut feeling or inner voice - but also to respect what it is telling you is one of these skills.
Learning to reshape long-established stifling patterns of behavior allows you to embrace the challenges of life more easily. Part of this is feeling intuitively what is right in a given situation.
You will not gain anything from coaching if you are comfortable remaining passive with respect to difficult situations. Instead of this, be guided, encouraged, supported and motivated in developing your own possibilities to take action.

You’ve probably had a coach at some point.
Maybe it was for your little league soccer games, college swim meets, or violin practice.
They teach you new skills, hold you accountable, make you a better person, and (hopefully) are a super supportive mentor.
Then you grow up and suddenly are out on our own. Some of you may be lucky enough to have awesome family and friends, but they’re not going to tirelessly listen to your problems or hold you accountable to learn new skills.
So you settle for less than you deserve in your career, love life, and all around happiness.

Christine dreads going into work everyday to face her manager, Paula.

Christine spends excessive amounts of time trying to make her work ‘perfect’ before presenting it to Paula - fearful of the critique she will receive. Christine feels like she is constantly undermined and that Paula is threatened when she performs well. Christine describes her as a ‘bad boss’ who makes her feel unsafe and she is looking for a new job.
Recently, the notion of creating psychologically safe cultures and teams in the workplace has become central to our understanding of an effective organisational environment.

No good employer is going to outright say that they kill you, but new research finds that too many modern workplaces are grim reapers inflicting a fatal amount of stress on our bodies and minds.
Jeffrey Pfeffer, a professor of organizational behavior at Stanford, is ringing the alarm that job stress and poor management is killing us — accounting for up to 8% of annual health costs and leading to 120,000 excess deaths every year in the United States.
In his new book, “Dying for a Paycheck: How Modern Management Harms Employee Health and Company Performance — and What We Can Do About It,” he explains how long hours, a lack of job autonomy through micromanagement, and unstable health insurance are making us sick to death.
He talked with Ladders about his research and what leads otherwise reasonable people to stay in toxic jobs:

There are many reasons for having the Monday morning blues. Even if you are an entrepreneur love your work it is possible to not feel enthusiastic about Monday morning. The blues do not necessarily relate only to disliking your job/company, a stressful work environment or difficult interpersonal relationships at work. Sometimes you simply are working too much, the hours are too long, or you have not made the most of the weekends for re-charging your battery. Lately I have also been hearing more about 'boreout' rather than 'burning out'. People are simply getting fed up with the quality of life at work - or lack of it and getting bored with it!
Here are some thoughts to help when the blues set in:
