What is Coaching?

My Personal Definition of Coaching:  A collaboration with the client to generate a conversation that creates a context for creativity and insight, which empowers and enables the client to become who and what they want to be in the world.

Other Definitions:  These are from two of the professional organization with whom I align my work: 

  • The International Coaching Federation’s definition of professional coaching: Coaching is a partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
  •  School of Coaching Mastery (SCM) definition of coaching: Coaching is a customized conversation that empowers the client to get what s/he wants by thinking and acting more resourcefully.

Why Would I Want to Work With a Coach?

  • To grow the courage you need to step out of your comfort zone and have the life you want
  • To quiet the inner critic
  • To feel supported, empowered and find your authentic voice
  • To no longer feel like an imposter
  • To get unstuck
  • To get motivated and inspired
  • To sort through challenging emotions
  • To develop a roadmap from where you are to becoming your best self
  • To strategize moving through the fears, challenges and obstacles that you face
  • To find peace within yourself.

How does 1:1 coaching work?

We meet over the phone or video chat for 30-60 minutes for a number of sessions over a period of time. You determine your long term goals for working together and the goals for each session. Using mindfulness, best coaching practices, and Positive Psychology tools, that I introduce and you approve, we tap into your own resourcefulness and inner wisdom. You will have new insights and ideas as to what you want to do next and how you will move towards your goals.
