Coaching is a dynamic relationship dedicated to your success. Your coach will assess where you have a strong foundation for success and where you have obstacles blocking your success. Your coach will support you in overcoming your obstacles with much less effort than you ever could alone. You can set your goals high and your coach will help you plan the steps to achieve those goals, not tell you that your goals are too high, or your dreams impossible. You can achieve your dreams with a well laid out plan and the proper support.
While working with a coach you will learn how to meet your unmet needs, and fine tune your life to be a life you love. In those times that you are feeling weak and want to give in, your coach will be there to support you. If you get off track your coach will help you to regain your focus and move forward. Your coach will also give you someone to be accountable to, so when you need that little extra support, you know who to go to and get the support you need. Those with a coach achieve what seems impossible and what wouldn’t be accomplished without a coach. No one who wants to be successful can afford to be without a coach.
During your appointments your life coach will help you define what you are looking for to enhance your life. A typical appointment is about 45 minutes and will include discussions about your goals, obstacles, and the support you need. Coaching makes life easier and provides a confidant. You have no concerns your information will be shared, as it could be with a trusted family member or friend. Everything about you is kept confidential. Appointments are usually conducted via phone.
