What is Coaching?
Professional Coaching is a professional partnership between a qualified coach and an individual that supports the achievement of extraordinary results, based on goals set by the individual. Through the process of coaching, individuals focus on the skills and actions needed to successfully produce personally relevant results. The individual chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions as well as concepts and principles which can assist in generating possibilities and identifying actions. Through the coaching process the clarity that is needed to support the most effective actions is achieved. Coaching accelerates the individual's progress by providing greater focus and awareness of possibilities leading to more effective choices. Coaching concentrates on where individuals are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future.
How do you help your clients?
In my practice, I coach you the person and not the problem. I follow your interests and ask you provocative questions to help you find your own answers so you can define your own path. I help you identify whats holding you back, and what excites you. And through that, we can discover your purpose and passions. Together we are co-conspirators in creating a road map to help you progress and stay on track.
What happens during a coaching session?
We have a structured conversation where I ask you guided questions to help you find the answers within you. We gain an awareness of your situation, your desired goals, and limiting beliefs. We then identify what are your motivations for achieving the goals. After all that, we explore your options and create a plan. Once a plan is established, we then brainstorm ways to achieve and stay focused.
How does coaching differ from traditional therapies?
Coaching can be distinguished from therapy in a number of ways. First, coaching is a profession that supports personal and professional growth and development based on individual-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is forward moving and future focused. Therapy, on the other hand, deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or a relationship between two or more individuals. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past which hamper an individual's emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with present life and work circumstances in more emotionally healthy ways. Therapy outcomes often include improved emotional/feeling states. While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one's work or personal life. The emphases in a coaching relationship is on action, accountability and follow through.
