What is coaching?
Coaching is an awareness, action, learning process. The cornerstone of coaching is the development of a trusting partnership/alliance between the client and coach. Together they delve into the topic of the day and/or the outcome of the client’s identified fieldwork with a curious mindset. Curiosity encourages each to set aside judgements and look for clues, perspectives and patterns that could prove supportive of goal attainment. Thus, promoting the development of self-awareness, learning and confidence.
The duration of the coaching relationship is unique to each client and the client’s identified outcomes. Because coaching is an action learning process, individuals who are motivated to create change and willing to devote the time to the coaching process both on the calls and in-between are my ideal client. Please give me a call or send an email so that we can set aside some time for me to learn more about you, what you are looking for from a coaching relationship and answer your questions.

How coaching works
2. Coaching Sessions
Three times a month, at a regularly scheduled time, we will devote 45 minutes to the topic of greatest importance to you. Early on, there is some adjustment to developing familiarity with the structure of the calls and your role as an engaged client.
During the call, we clarify the topic and what makes it important to you, explore the current situation and potential next steps. You will decide your next steps that you are willing to taking into the field so to speak. During the next call, we will spend some time looking at your “fieldwork” and what occurred. We approach this phase of the call with a curious mindset to put aside judgement, look for the learning and identify the elements that are of value to you moving forward.
1. Discovery Session
When possible, this occurs in person; otherwise via phone/ Skype. We explore your strengths, challenges, resources, and identify your goals for coaching. This longer session is the first step in building a trusting and confidential partnership that supports your goals.
