What is coaching? 

Coaching is a form of consulting. Like a consultant, a coach helps you and/or your firm to:

Solve problems
Reach goals
Design a plan of action
Make decisions

In addition to the above, the coach "stays with" (coaches) the client to: 

Implement the plan of action, working through the inevitable changes and any obstacles.
Maintain a healthy balance between your personal and professional life.
Keep looking ahead to take advantage of opportunities which are just now formulating.
Bring out your personal best, keeping focused on your needs, values and vision. 

All coaches are consultants; not all consultants are coaches. 

Why does coaching work? 

Coaching works because it brings out your best. A coach believes you have the answers and is trained to bring them out (painlessly)!
Specifically, this is what I do with you during our coaching sessions:

Listen. I listen fully. You are the focus. I listen to what you say, what you are trying to say, and what you are not saying.
After you have fully communicated, I share with you my advice, ideas, comments and views on your situation, dilemma or opportunity.
Anyone who's up to something an entrepreneur, a manager with an extraordinary objective, a  professional filling the practice needs - yes, needs - an outside voice full of endorsement, compassion and acknowledgement. Not as a yes type person, but as someone who knows what it takes to achieve.
I want a lot for you. I want you to be healthy, happy and successful. I want you to be on a strong financial track. I want you to enjoy your family and friends. I want you to have a life that inspires others - and yourself. Part of my job is to be at least 3 steps ahead of you, yet be with you. As such, I make requests and suggestions. And, you are the client.

Six benefits of working with a coach

Coaching is proven to work when these two factors are present: 1. The client is willing to grow, and 2. There is a gap between where they are now and where they want to be. That is all that is necessary for you and your coach to solve problems, create a new life, create goals that are congruent with your most deeply held values, and design and implement a plan of action. Or whatever else is called for to ensure that you have what you need to get more of what you want.

With a Coach You Will:  

Take More, Better, and Smarter Actions:
Ultimately, humans do what they really want to do anyway. And to find out exactly what you really want for yourself and your business is our first task together. I help you to distinguish between what you coulda, shoulda, oughta and have-to want from what you, in your heart of hearts, really want for yourself. Once you create the ideal goal that is designed to act in concert with your most deeply held values, you're much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach it.

 Have a Balanced Life Which Works Well:
Sorry, but having it all means starting with a balanced life. And you know what that means -- It's time to be very, very selfish. Not egotistical, but Selfish. With a capital S. I'll show you how to be selfish yet responsible. And how to get your needs met and still be liked by other people! (This process is called establishing your Personal Foundation and there are only 25 steps. You'll love building your foundation because you know you're worth it. You need this base if you are to be your Self.

 Make & Keep More Money:
Money, money, money! You gotta have it and have a lot more of it than you think. You know you can make (and keep) more money, so why don't you? I'll help you increase your business, fill your practice, pay off old bills, set up a financial plan and future and help design a strategy for you to earn more from your professional efforts. (Yes, you can!)

Reach for More, Much More:
When anyone has a partner they trust, they will always reach for more because they can afford to.

 Make Better Decisions for Yourself and Your Business:
Every single client of mine is smart, smart and smart. Yet, they still use me. Why? Because they know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is subjective enough to want a lot for them, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. Just you talking about your options with someone who can listen is often enough to have it all become very clear. You'll always get my honest, constructive views.

 Have a Lot More Sustainable Energy:

When you're happy, productive and free from tolerations and problems, you are going to feel better!

How do you work?

I work mostly on the telephone: It is called telecoaching. You call me at a pre-scheduled time. Most clients call me once per week at the same time each week. Calls are usually 50 minutes.
