To transform your outer circumstances, a change must first occur from within. But inner change can be one of the most challenging tasks for human beings. This is where coaching comes in. My job is to inspire and support you in making those internal and external choices that enable you to move toward your highest goals and visions.
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 help 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 help you remove the blocks to achieving your heart’s desire. I’m there with you every step of the way, supporting, affirming, keeping your vision fresh and helping you go beyond your normal limits.
A coach is not a therapist, counselor, psychotherapist or psychologist. A coach offers individualized developmental activities that help you move toward your specific goals and visions. The work proceeds 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 that help you see your life as it is, recognize what is missing or identify strengths that need to be leveraged. 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: Overcome the Hurdles
After your vision and goals are clear, you need a new set of resources that will help you 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 facilities every day to keep new beliefs and behaviors in place.
Decision: Choose the life you love!
Decision comes from clarifying goals and determining direction. Yet any major decision needs support to keep it in place. It’s like physical fitness. You decide to get fit. Working with a trainer over time helps you keep your momentum and supports you in continuing to improve.
In much the same way, the support element of the coaching process helps you maintain your new life and continue moving forward. I’m here and available, advocating for you, empowering you, helping you push through obstacles and celebrating your successes.
