High Intelligence coaching is for Gifted Adults who struggle with the challenges of high IQ. Being highly intelligent is a gift and a curse and managing it can extremely difficult. In this blog, I will explain my job and the things I do to help highly intelligent people.
I use this analogy for all my clients. Where ‘regular’ people drive Toyota’s, highly intelligent people drive Ferrari’s. Ferrari’s are extremely powerful machines with tons of potential, but if you don’t know how to manage that potential, you’re likely to run all that power right into a wall.
Toyota’s on the other hand, while less powerful, are trustworthy and don’t need that much maintenance or care. They usually will get you from A to B without any big problems.
Highly intelligent people have access to this incredible machine but without knowing how to manage it, it becomes a danger instead of a benefit. If they don’t learn to properly manage their car, the good ol’ Toyota will eventually pass them by.
When a highly intelligent child grows up and goes through their educational career they either manage to whistle through their early years with minimal effort or they struggle and get offered many ‘professionals.’ The kid is already intellectually developed in such a way that it can avoid dealing with difficult questions and (unknowingly) manipulate their support system around them. They do this for many reasons, some of which I will explain in an upcoming blog, but mostly to protect themselves and their environment from being a burden.
This is just one of the deeply traumatic experiences a young gifted child can go through, which can have a deep impact long into their adult life.
During this time they can also experience deep sense of loneliness. Around 5% of the world is estimated to be highly intelligent, and intelligence is a spectrum, so chances that you find someone that recognizes your challenges AND potential, is slim to none.
So they have to start to accept the fact that they are going to have to figure this out on their own,
When these young gifted kids have grown into adults, they often continue to struggle with managing their huge potential and high sensitivities. They might start to engage in therapy and coaching, but again they experience disappointment because they feel misunderstood and unrecognized.
This is in no way the fault of the therapist or the client. It is because they both agreed to engage in this loveless marriage that was doomed to fail from the beginning. As with most aspects of life, the gifted adult expected too much and the therapist was not able to deliver on that expectation.
So they live their life, constantly recycling their problems of the past until they find recognition in their personal environment or in a professional.
This is not only the story of all my clients, this is my story as well. I have lived this, went through the mill of mental health care, and came out worse than I started.
I have developed a unique program, that is specifically catered to highly intelligent individuals. Developed by, with and for gifted high achievers.
It walks you through 5 steps, awareness, clarity, structure, growth and spirituality.
We believe that helping highly intelligent individuals needs more than just recognizing and understanding their challenges and potential, but also a solid strategy that is designed for structural and consistent change.
Every client is different so every weekly session is different. Some prefer to talk things through, when others prefer to do journal exercises. Some want to jump right into diet and fitness, while some want to do some self-learning.
We have worked with 100s of clients and have helped them all to dramatically change their lives
Mind you, coaching is not a quicky fix and high intelligence coaching is no difference. It takes time, commitment, effort, resilience, honesty and trust.
