is a process of supporting individuals to create lives that matter.
It is a continual process of self-growth and personal evolution.
Coaches use numerous methods to help people uncover their potential
and manifest the greatness within themselves.
is a series of sessions, in person, via the web or telephone with
a professional coach in which you will identify barriers to your
own success and begin to set out some goals and action strategies
to achieve those goals. Throughout this process, you will be encouraged
and supported. You choose the focus of the conversations while the
coach listens fully and observes while asking those questions that
will move you to the next level. This is where the real success
begins, when you begin to realize your answers and move through
the barriers that may have been holding you back.
a relationship which facilitates a person's movement toward her
most important and desired goals. A professional coach specializes
in helping you identify what gives your life meaning and in transforming
that into specific strategies, tailored to your own unique situation,
that enable you to make your life vision a day-to-day reality.
Perhaps your career has not brought you the satisfaction you'd hoped
for. Have you wondered whether the problem might be your particular
job? Maybe you're unhappy with your area of involvement. Could it
be that the current field isn't right for you after all?
Have you wondered how to succeed in your work and still have time
for the other important things in your life: your family and other
relationships, your health, and some much needed rest and relaxation?
Perhaps you're confident that you've chosen the right career but
find yourself so impossibly busy that the neglected parts of your
life are now exacting a price.
Perhaps you've felt that you could achieve your goals if only you
had someone to help you strategize, to believe in you at times when
you lose faith in yourself, to walk beside you on the road from
here to where you want to go, supporting you every step of the way.
You know that psychotherapy is not what you need. You've already
done more than enough thinking about the past; you need to make
an action plan for the future. And while family and friends are
wonderful, sometimes they have their own goals for you that don't
coincide with yours.
If you've ever said to yourself, "If only I had a supportive
person to help me see new possibilities for balancing my life,"
then finding a coach may be your answer. Just as a personal trainer
would help you develop - and stick to- a fitness plan or performance
goal, a professional and personal coach can help you clarify your
most important goals, craft an action plan to get there and serve
as a resource and support every step of the way.
Your coach will serve as your mentor - a trusted and knowledgeable
advisor, a person who does far more than just cheer you on. An effective
coaching relationship can inspire you to reach your greatest potential
by helping you identify and mobilize your best assets in order to
reach your life goals.
You and your coach work collaboratively to activate the very courage
and competence that brought you to where you are now - and to make
your dreams a reality.

We work with the individual or team to establish a baseline of behavior,
intentions and expectation , then together we identify direction,
outcomes ,and a course of action. Sometimes we shadow the individual
to learn how congruent someone's actions are with their state intentions
of goals. Often we sit in with a team and provide them with feedback
about how their behavior is enabling and inhibiting the effectiveness
of the team. In all cases we give ideas, teach tools, assess styles,
and share our observations with the focus on positive expansion.

IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COUNSELING, THERAPY AND CONSULTING?
Counseling delves into personal history, therapy focuses on psychological
areas and consulting is the premise that there is some expert background
to which answers and solutions will be provided. Coaches do not
provide the answers. We believe that the solutions are found within
each of us, we only help surface them.
ARE COACHES TRAINED?
There are numerous institutions that offer credentialed courses
and programming as well as international memberships that are in
the process of creating a regulated community of professionals.
