Who Works With A Coach?
Entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals, and people in transition are some of the people who typically work with a coach. Regardless of their professional endeavor or place in life, all of my clients have one thing in common: they are all successful, resourceful, and intelligent individuals who want to get even more out of their lives. Coaching clients use a coach to ﬁx, solve, create, or plan something, personally or professionally.
Here is what the client and coach can work on together:
Business planning, budgeting, and goal setting
Integrating business and personal life for balance
Turning around a difﬁcult situation
Achieving maximum work performance
Handling business or personal problems
Making key decisions and designing strategies
Prioritizing actions and projects
Catching up and getting ahead of the business
Increasing sales substantially or ﬁlling a practice
Get more accomplished
Have a balanced life that works well
Make Better Decisions
Have More Sustainable Energy
How is Coaching Different From Therapy or Consulting?
Coaching is not therapy, which goes into depth about various issues, usually dealing with the past, nor is it consulting which generally results in giving the client answers. Coaching is more action‐oriented and focuses primarily on the present and future. As your coach, I enable you to determine your own “answers” through the work done in our coaching partnership.
But how does a coach do this?
Coaching is delivered during regular, weekly sessions by telephone or in person whichever is more convenient. Coaches bring an agenda of items to the call or meeting. The coach helps them solve problems and make the most of opportunities. When they are taking on a large goal, we help them design the project and provide the support and structure needed to make sure it gets done. We bring out each coachee’s best by offering advice, expecting a lot, helping them strategize and celebrating their wins. A practice can be national, with coachees in every area of the country, from big cities to small towns; coachees can range from small business owners to CEOs; and coaching can focus on either business goals or personal goals.
What should I look for in a coach?
The right coach brings out your best, consistently. To do this, the coach you select should pass the following three tests: (1) Does this coach have a track record of helping someone like me accomplish the goals I want? (2) Do I feel good and motivated to act when with this coach? (3) Will this coach keep up with me—and stay ahead of me—as I grow? That’s it. You can always check references and try out the coach for a month to see if he or she is really the right one for you. I work well with three types of coachees: (1) entrepreneurs and small-ofﬁce professionals who are smart, quick, and ready to do what it takes to reach blockbuster goals; (2) individuals who are making substantial changes in their personal and professional lives; and (3) individuals who are working on an important project.
How would I get started?
If you feel that this type of relationship could work for you, call and let’s talk. Coaching is not something we sell; it is something you buy because you want it.
Where do I start with a coach?
Most coaches begin with a special coachee meeting to get to know each other. The coach wants to hear about the coachee’s goals, needs, and problems. The coachee wants to get comfortable with the coach. During this meeting, both parties design a list of goals and a game plan to reach these goals. Prior to this meeting, the coachee will have received a welcome package containing checklists and assessment materials to make the most of the meeting. Some coaches spend extra time (gratis) with new coachees getting to know them and coaching them to set the best goals for themselves, and together they design the best way to work together as a team to accomplish the goals.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is quickly becoming one of the leading tools that successful people use to live extraordinary lives. Through coaching sessions, my clients identify what is most important to them and align their thoughts, words, and actions, accordingly. As your coach, I work with you to identify what you want personally and professionally and support you in achieving a life that you really want and love. Having a life you love starts with gaining clarity on your values, enabling more meaningful choices and consistent action. Your commitment to your life through coaching offers a means for more balance, joy, intimacy, energy, financial abundance, focus, and action in every area of your life. Coaching synthesized the best from psychology, business, evolution, philosophy, spirituality, and ﬁnance to beneﬁt the entrepreneur, professional, and business owner.
How Does Coaching Work and What are the Benefits of Working With A Coach?
Coaching works because of three unique features:
Synergy: Client and coach become a team, focusing on the client’s goals and needs to accomplish more than the client would alone.
Structure: With a coach, a client takes more action, thinks bigger, and gets the job done, thanks to the accountability the coach provides.
Expertise: The coach knows how to help entrepreneurs make more money, make better decisions, set the best goals, and restructure their professional and personal lives for maximum productivity.
Coaching is also proven to work when two factors are present:
The client is willing to learn, grow, and take action
There is a gap between where he/she is now and where he/she wants to be
That's all that is necessary for a successful coaching relationship where you can develop the right strategy, implement a plan of action, and achieve your goals. Anything is possible within our coaching relationship.
