What is coaching?

Coaching is the ability to partner with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. As a Coach, I honor and respect you, the client, as the expert in your life and work.  And believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, it is my responsibility to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what you the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage your self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold you responsible and accountable

Is coaching right for you?

To determine whether you or your company could benefit from coaching, start by summarizing what you would expect to accomplish in coaching. When an individual or business has a fairly clear idea of the desired outcome, a coaching partnership can be a useful tool for developing a strategy for how to achieve that outcome with a clear process.

Since coaching is a partnership, ask yourself whether collaboration, other viewpoints, and new perspectives are valued. Also, ask yourself whether you or your business is ready to devote the time and the energy to making real changes. If the answer is yes, then coaching may be a beneficial way to grow and develop. 

 

What is your coaching style?

I believe in a purpose based, question oriented coaching style. I do NOT read from a script NOR will tell you information that I have not personally researched, understood and applied. Creating a business or non-profit is not easy and I will not waste your time. A typical session will include the following:

  • Your update/review of where you are and what you have done
  • A discussion about the topic of that session - branding, marketing, products, networking, etc
  • Clear, detailed, and realistic action steps to get you from where you are to where you want to be 
  • Homework for our next session
  • An Excitement/Encouragement boost to celebrate your progress because Hey! You're doing something cool!

Who is your ideal client?

My ideal client is someone who is Ready, Willing, and Able. That's it! With the right attitude we can accomplish anything! Its not about money nor knowledge base, the best clients are the ones who are tired of where they are and what they have been doing and KNOW that they have to make a change. My ideal client has a dream, idea, or a passion that has been sitting on the shelf and is ready to be born. Maybe you don't know HOW to do it or IF it can be done but you are READY to move and I am READY to help you! 

If that sounds like you check out my Contact Me page to set up your FREE consultation.

Do you offer any more "affordable" options?

While Coaching is an investment in your future it shouldn't break your bank account! I offer lower priced options for those who want to "test the goods"  or do not want to commit to a full course. I also have created space on my calendar for a few "pro bono" clients and space is available on a first come first serve basis!
