Is Coaching For Me?
"A coach is someone who shows you how to do or master something, whether it be reaching an important goal or making a difficult change. A coach stays with you and helps you select the goal, engage with it, progress through it, achieve it, and integrate the accomplishment into your life. -Thomas Leonard (founder of the coaching movement, my mentor) (quote-anywhere in page) The benefits of coaching appear to win over even the most cynical clients within just a few weeks."

Coaching is an active collaboration designed to generate strategies, solutions and new perspectives to solve problems and meet goals. Simply put, coaching can change your life!
In coaching, growth and change are built on taking action and learning as you go. The foundational belief is that you are creative, resourceful and whole. The coach takes you seriously and is ready to help you realize your potential. In a safe, confidential atmosphere, momentum is created, reserves are built up, strategies are developed. The coach supports, encourages, challenges, helps you to prioritize choices and develop a plan for you to live your life at your highest level of effectiveness.
Who wants coaching?
How it works.
How is it done?
Coaching is usually done by phone. It is a peer alliance, with you setting the pace. There is an initial Design meeting, where we determine our direction together. Then, we meet for 30-minute sessions 2-3 times a month. Generally, there is at least a three-month commitment. The purpose is always to enhance performance towards very specific and measurable goals. Coaching is a highly focused, active collaboration directed toward success, which is defined by you. Expect to make some significant changes! Coaching is a very powerful experience.
I invite you to call or e-mail me for a 30-minute free consult. It is an opportunity to talk together about what you are looking for, ask questions, learn more about how coaching works and whether I can be helpful to you on your path.
