What is Coaching
Coaching is a co-creative process that offers clarity, focus and ongoing support to create your dreams and goals.
The Coaching relationship is designed based on your interests, challenges, and goals. The Coach is not a therapist, counselor, or consultant. Through discussion, questions, and requests, the Coach will assist you to reflect, identify goals, develop strategies to reach them, take action, and adapt to challenges along the way. Together you create more power for you to effect meaningful change and take dynamic actions towards your goals.
What is a Coaching session like?
You bring an agenda to the each session. The agenda can be your biggest dream, ultimate goal, or a challenge that you feel is hindering your journey to reach your desired outcome.
As your coach, I will listen closely to you, respond to what I hear, and ask questions. If I hear something in your voice or language that sparks an intuitive thought, I’m likely to ask you about it. Often, it is the small moments that bring about BIG shifts. If I’m not on target, just tell me. I’m not attached to being right. At the end of the session, if you do not mention what actions you are ready to take, I will make a coach request. I ask clients to stretch themselves, deepen the work done in the sessions by writing, taking some action, resolving relationships or things that feel incomplete. You are free to negotiate, accept or decline.
Between sessions, if you have questions, a brief update, or want to bounce some ideas around, please contact me by phone or email. Please keep these contacts succinct. If it seems like it will be better served as session material, I’ll suggest that.
Ways You Can Get More From Your Coaching Experience
Make your coaching sessions a priority. Come to every call with a specific agenda – a clear understanding of what you’d like to take away from the session. Do your own work between sessions. Use what you learn. Complete what you agree to do. Be open-minded. Try new approaches. Experiment. Be willing to change your beliefs and patterns if they do not serve you anymore.
