What is Coaching
Coaching is a partnership between a coach and an individual seeking clarity and support to fulfill personal or professional goals. It is a structured means to motivate people to identify their objectives and discover what actions they’re willing to take to realize those dreams.
Coaches emphasize the embodiment of one’s core values in everything from day to day decisions to big picture plans, ensuring that personal progress is always linked with one’s higher ideals. By asking pointed and thought provoking questions, coaches are able to help individuals discover the answers and the power within themselves to change and grow.
Such guidance also accelerates progress by providing greater focus and awareness of possibilities, as well as a partner in brainstorming ideas. This leads to more effective choices and productive action and ultimately, the gift of new perspectives and ideas for measured forward motion.
Life coaching is about living your truth, embracing the authentic you and celebrating it. Self-awareness affords you access to yourself and what lies beneath. When we can be in touch with the heart of ourselves we can expand outward knowing what will bring us our greatest happiness.
We explore beliefs and standards that drive your actions and feelings, discovering their current validity and relevance to who and where you are in life in this moment.
Through individual coaching I facilitate the discovery, application and living of your individual ideals. I empower individuals to maintain conscious commitment to themselves, their families and professional relationships as they exercise choice, demonstrate their value and create opportunity.
Transitioning back to work, changing jobs or more fully bringing your attention to how you excel in the workplace are all examples of the transitions we face in our professional lives. Transitions can be complex. Connecting to one’s self as a professional can be a process. I lend a steady hand as you discover the unique abilities that make you a desirable and sought after candidate. I support you in valuing yourself and all that you have to offer. I help you prepare to foster relationships that support your professional development while making choices that are in sync with your overall career and life goals.
I can help you understand how to use your individual standards and ideals to support you as you make decisions and recognize choice. This insight can enable you to more easily see opportunities that are right for you versus those that only partially meet your needs.
Life is filled with transitions, moving from one stage of life to the next. Such shifts can be wonderful and exciting while also bringing up feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. I help you decisively navigate your way to a new place in life that is in line with your values and intentions. Together we tackle the questions and challenges that arise as we design and implement a plan that gets you where you want to go.
My intention is to help you find your individual path and stay on it, free from the expectations and judgement of others. Nobody is in your head and heart the way you are. Only you know your truth. Jointly we figure out what’s most important to you and where you naturally excel. We recognize your life purpose and, one step at a time, begin moving in that direction.
