Why Coaching is Hard (And why that’s Ok)

October 3, 2022

Welcome to this solo episode of The Ambitious Introvert® Podcast, inspired by question a client asked me a few weeks ago:

“Why does coaching sometimes feel amazing? And then it sometimes feels so hard?”

And as someone that has coached a lot of clients and worked with many coaches myself, I completely understood what she meant! This feeling of coming off some calls feeling like I can conquer the world, and then leaving others feeling drained and a little bit despondent. 

So join me in this episode where I dive into why coaching can feel hard – and why that’s okay!


  • What can happen during coaching (that people rarely discuss online)
  • Why sometimes you might not feel aligned with what your coach is suggesting (but you may do later)
  • Why a good coach helps you reach your potential
