Support to Move to the Next Step
Your coaching session is an interactive process that is all about you. I ask questions. You talk. I listen for your highest values, principles and beliefs, and you line up your goals with what is most important to you. I look at the big picture, offer assessments if needed, assist you in coming up with plans and guide you past the blocks to achieving your heart’s desire. I’m there with you every step of the way, supporting, affirming and keeping your vision fresh so you can go beyond your normal limits.
A coach is not a therapist, counselor, psychotherapist or psychologist. A coach offers individualized developmental activities that guide you toward your goals and vision. We work in three stages: Discovery, Direction and Decision.
Discovery: Clarify Your Vision
The first stage in coaching is to identify your highest values, principles and beliefs. This is the process of unearthing your authentic self. It sounds easy, but often wants and needs are buried under “woulds,” “coulds” and “shoulds” that keep us from acknowledging our true goals and desires. Your coaching session is a safe, nonjudgmental place for you to explore and discover who you are and what you really want in life.
We work with a variety of tools and assessments so you can see your life as it is, recognize what is missing and identify strengths you can leverage. Coaching is a powerful yet gentle process of moving from one way of seeing the world to another, and through that change, creating the life you want.
Direction: Overcoming the Hurdles
After your vision and goals are clear, you need a new set of resources to move forward into this new life. The more resources you have, the greater your likelihood of success. I teach or administer a number of tools and processes that you can integrate into your daily life. You can call on these every day to keep your new beliefs and behaviors in place.
Decision: Choose the Life You Love!
Decision comes from clarifying your goals and determining your direction. Yet any major decision needs support to keep it in place. It’s like physical fitness. You decide to get fit, and working with a trainer over time, you keep your momentum and continue to improve.
