Executive coaching, leadership coaching, life coaching--how do you know which is the right fit for you? You are unique, your coaching needs are individual, and your coach should treat you that way. My job is to work with you and help make you better. We can start with a space between “better” and the period. A better _____. A better leader, better business owner, better person, better at life. Better. I am a personal coach, and I work with you, for you.
I work with clients in many circumstances, all with the common goal of improving life. Together we can help you find a better work-life balance, a better way of leading your team, and even a better way to complete significant life event transitions/transformations.
My practice is defined by authenticity, integrity, and practicality. I build real relationships with those I serve. We will work together to identify the obstacles that hold you back and find ways to overcome those challenges. I use my experience and training to help you become the best YOU possible.
Life has a way of derailing our plans and ambitions. Even the best intentions become lost in ambiguity, frustrations, and busyness. Hopes and dreams are sorted into the “wish” pile, most often without any sort of path to the desired outcome.
Getting off track can happen to anyone--executives, parents, medical professionals, politicians, military personnel, spiritual leaders, managers, salespeople, entrepreneurs, educators, counselors, and on and on. And it does happen more often than not. When one gets off track, it is my job to help you get back on the path and point you in the right direction.
No matter where life finds you, coaching can help you identify and navigate the obstacles that are keeping you from reaching your potential...your best YOU.
Coaching has been defined in many ways. I define coaching as partnering with you to change the way you desire. Coaching supports you as a whole person at every level in becoming who you want to be. Coaching builds awareness, empowers choice, and leads to change.
Coaching unlocks a person’s potential to maximize their performance. Coaching helps you find the answers within.
A coach helps the client achieve their personal best and produce the results they want in their personal and professional lives. Coaching ensures the client can give their best, learn, and develop in the way they wish. The coach does not need to be an expert in their clients’ field of work.
Counseling is working with a client who feels uncomfortable or dissatisfied with their life. They are seeking guidance and advice. A counselor works remedially on a client’s problem.
Therapy is working with a client who seeks relief from psychological or physical symptoms. The client wants emotional healing and relief from mental pain. Therapy addresses the client’s mental health. Coaching addresses the client’s mental growth. The client’s motive for entering therapy or counseling is usually to cope with pain or discomfort rather than moving towards desired goals. Coaching is not remedial, it is generative. Both therapy and counseling are more likely to involve understanding and working with past experiences than coaching.
