About Coaching

Coaching is not about problem solving, it's a way to carve out a moment when you can reflect on what's happening in your life and/or work. The focus of coaching is to enhance your life, developing personal strengths, creating patterns of success, and building reserves as opposed to believing that life is a problem that needs fixing. It's a sort of "mind workout" that gives you a fresher outlook on things, similar to the way that regular physical workouts will positively affect your body and spirit.

Coaching can be used for you in a way similarly for professional athletes:

  • to become better at what you're naturally good at
  • to perform at peak capacity 
  • to achieve a goal by performing a series of steps and exercises over a period of time

Initial work together explores your current situation, what's working and not working, and explore solutions to create a pathway to where you ultimately want to go. Extensive tools and methods are utilized to tailor an experience that is right for you.

This is not meant to be easy work. It is necessary to experience the inner self in order to realize what it will take for you to feel true success. However, taking small, realistic steps, over time you will find you have transformed into a new, more meaningful and fulfilling life.
