Coaching can help you to meet the goals that you have for yourself when you take the time to develop a solid relationship with me as a coaching professional. It is my objective as a coach to motivate you and hold you accountable for achieving your goals. From an outside standpoint, as a coach I may be able to see areas of concern that you are not able to discern. In that sense, the process raises your awareness of a different way to handle things in your life or business.
I believe that each of us has the inner power to make our life be what we want it to be. I consider the coaching relationship as an alliance, a partnership, a process of inquiry that empowers clients to reconnect with their own inner wisdom, to find their own answers, to rediscover those powerful moments of choice out of which lasting change grows.
I believe we are all whole beings and our choices can affect every other aspect of our lives. Our work affects our relationships. Our relationships touch our spirituality. Our spiritual well being affects our capacity for joy which affects our work and so on, round and round. I coach the whole person because I believe you deserve the life you want.
So… Who are you? What is important to you? What are your challenges? What gets in your way? Where do you want to go? How would you feel if your life were just exactly the way you wanted it to be? When would you like to begin? What are you waiting for?
The client is expected to attend each session on time and ready to work. They may need to be open to changes in their goals as the coaching process evolves. As a coach I am not judgmental but impartial. To that end, as your coach I will ask the tough questions and expect the tough answers in order for growth to take place both personally and professionally, but only as it pertains to the situation. However, clients do maintain the right to decide what topics to cover and to terminate a subject if they don’t want to discuss it further.
As your coach I am expected to listen to you my client and your desires and work within that guideline as much as possible. Guidelines will be set down for each session ahead of time so that the client is aware of what behavior will and won’t be tolerated. The goal of each coaching session is to work through setbacks the client may have, clarify goals through exercises and find ways to move forward on goals with the client, i.e. creating action items. The client is expected to hold themselves accountable for what they do and don’t do to make these sessions productive.
