What is coaching?

Coaching is a new profession that developed to meet a need that wasn't being met.  Coaching is for healthy people who want to move ahead with their goals and understand more about themselves.

Coaches:

  • Help clients set better goals and then reach those goals.
  • Ask their clients to do more than they would have done on their own.
  • Focus their clients better to more quickly produce results.
  • Provide the tools, support, resources and structure to accomplish more.
  • Help with life questions and issues of meaning and purpose.
  • Help you define what success is for you and then coach you to get there.
  • Provide a sounding bound
  • Support and nurture you as you evolve

How is coaching different from consulting?  Sports coaching?  Therapy?  Best friend?

Consulting. Coaching is a form of consulting. But the coach stays with the client to help implement the new skills, changes and goals to make sure they really happen. 

Therapy. Coaching is not therapy. We don't work on "issues" or get into the past.  Coaching takes you from where you are forward.  At times a client may have both a therapist and a coach.  The emphasis is different.

Sports. Coaching includes several principles from sports coaching, like teamwork, going for the goal, being your best. But unlike sports coaching, most professional coaching is not competition or win/lose based. We strengthen the client's skills vs help them beat the other team. It's win/win.

Best friend. A best friend is wonderful to have. But is your best friend a professional whom you will trust to advise you on the most important aspects of your life and/or business? Have a best friend and a coach.

What is the basic philosophy of coaching?

Simply put, that we humans are great, that we're all discovering what we really want and that we get  what we want faster and easier by having a coach who's been there and who can help us.

Who hires a coach and why?

People hire a coach because

  • They want more.
  • They want to grow.
  • They want it easier.

It's as simple as that. Coaches help a client get all three. Quickly.

What happens when you hire a coach?

Many things, but the most important are:
  • You take yourself more seriously.
  • You take more effective and focused actions immediately.
  • You stop putting up with what is dragging you down.
  • You create momentum so it's easier to get results.
  • You set better goals that you would have without the coach.
  • You learn to become more of who you are

BE YOURSELF!  EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN!
