What coaching is and isn't

 A coach is not a therapist, consultant or a best friend.  A coach helps fully functioning individuals up their game and bring out their fullest potential.  A coach partners with, champions and holds client accountable towards achieving their goal. The  coaching process has a beginning, middle and end. A coach helps identify limiting beliefs and through a process of provocative, empowering questions and specialized coaching techniques, a coach will help create a roadmap to achieve goals.   The benefits a client obtains from coaching depends on how well they use the process and put into practice the tools provided and the learnings. Some of the benefits include: 

  • Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values

  • Developing skills for improving relationships

  • Finding resolution to issues or concerns that led you to coaching

  • Learning the 7 levels of energy and how they impact how we show up

  • Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones

  • Getting crystal clear on what you want to achieve

​You get what you put in when it comes to coaching so it is extremely important to understand that your results from coaching come when you actively participate in the process.  You will be asked to bring what you learn in sessions back into your life.  As your accountability partner, you will play an active role in deciding how to keep yourself accountable to support your process. Examples may be reading a pertinent book, journaling on specific topics, noting particular behaviors or taking action on your goals. People seeking coaching are ready to take action, make positive changes in their lives, are open to new perspectives and take responsibility.​

What is the coaching process?

When clients decide to hire a coach, it is typically because they want a career pivot, start a business, lose weight, become stronger/healthier or finding a partner.  There is something missing or lacking in their lives that they have not been able to achieve on their own. So, they hire a coach!  Once that decision to change is made, it is then that magic happens.

Step 1: EXPLORE:   

  • We agree on a  2, 3 or 6 month plan.

  • We work together to explore where you are today? What are your core values? Get crystal clear on Your Purpose? What's missing? Where do you want to be 3, 6, 12 months from today? What does it look like? What does it feel like?

  • We create a vision of that future self and then we take action. 

Step 2:  DECIDE

  • Once you DECIDE what goal you want to achieve, then we dive deep into creating and deciding what actionable steps you want to take now to achieve your goal and get clear on the goal. If the goal seems unreachable, we will brainstorm and come up with a strategy on 1 or 2 small steps. Start with the end in mind and move it forward. 

Step 3:  CREATE

  • Like Picasso and a blank canvas, we will begin to create your masterpiece.

  • We will meet regularly to ensure we are moving the needle north and change is occuring.

  • We will create new habits that will transform and empower you to reach your goals.

  • We will regularly assess milestones along the way and CELEBRATE!

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and coach.  Through the established coaching agreement, which is done before any coaching begins, in a Coach-Client Relationship, coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behavior established by the International Coach Federation “(ICF)” and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone.
