Coaching may be the right approach for you if you prefer participating in a collaborative, supportive relationship where we are both recognized as equals in our interactions. This means that as your coach, I recognize you as the expert in your own life. My role is to assist you in finding the answers you seek within yourself, by emphasizing an inward-focused approach to defining and clarifying your goals and the obstacles or challenges that have prevented you from achieving them in the past.
We successfully accomplish this together by using numerous coaching techniques and strategies that help you identify what matters most to you, including identifying influential factors like your focus, skills, capabilities, habits, motivations, perspectives, values, dreams, levels of life satisfaction, and any gaps that may be revealed between these factors and your chosen life goals.
Throughout our interactions, I will be an engaged and active listener, respectfully prompting you to dig deeper within yourself through insightful and thought-provoking questions that will help you discover the solutions within you to the obstacles that may have prevented you from reaching your goals.
Together, we will evaluate your potential strategies and solutions for moving forward toward the achievement of your goals. I will guide you through this process by asking you what you think about each option rather than by telling you what I think, until you decide on the option or strategy that you believe will work best for you.
Finally, I will support you during the implementation of your chosen option or strategy by requesting purposeful action and commitment from you, holding you accountable to the implementation of your chosen plan so that you can successfully move forward in achieving your goals.
Accountability is an essential part of the coaching relationship, since options and solutions without actions and follow through won't produce the results you want to achieve. Accountability helps keep you on track as you move forward in the pursuit of your goals and dreams.
If coaching sounds like the right approach for you, please contact me so that we can schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and goals, and I can answer any questions that you might have about the coaching process.
