What is Coaching?
I believe that coaching is a mutually responsible relationship between coaches and clients designed to help clients determine their own destiny. Just as Olympic athletes don’t rely solely on physical training without the support, objective feedback and experience of an athletic coach, many of today’s most successful leaders, entrepreneurs and individuals utilize the perspective and experience of a coach to help lift their personal lives and careers to the next level.
Why Does Coaching Work?
Accountability is built in. In addition to monthly face to face coaching sessions, I provide 1-2 calls and unlimited e-mail exchanges each month with clients; this encourages them to work harder at their goals than if they were working alone. You can relate to this if you work out with a personal trainer at the gym – you work harder at those times than when you work out by yourself.
Expertise counts. As a trained life coach and a former therapist, I know how to listen to both feelings and words. This helps you think with more clarity, and structure your personal and professional life around the right goals to improve productivity and life satisfaction. You'll achieve more in less time with input that is supportive, motivating, compassionate and real world-based.
Delivery makes a difference. An objective, positive coach knows how to motivate without arm-twisting or nagging. My combined approach of monthly face to face sessions, 1-2 calls a month, and unlimited emails gives you time to integrate new ways of thinking and acting. Being coached is energizing and uplifting and, even when it’s challenging, there is a sense of growing self-confidence that helps make it fun.
Fast results are motivating. Most people find that things start to happen quickly after hiring a coach. Events seem to gain momentum, and each day brings renewed enthusiasm for success in reaching goals that naturally motivate you. If there’s a gap between where you are today and where you want to be, you are a good candidate for coaching. I will help you close the gap, and help you break through limited beliefs. I will challenge you to think on a bigger scale about what is possible. As one client put it, “…you helped me see the landscape of my situation in new and exciting ways.”
