Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coach’s help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.
Coaches are trained to listen, observe and customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity the client already has.
Our programs are for clients willing to answer tough questions that open up the opportunity to see what is possible for them and their business. Our clients are organizations and individuals committed to action and seeking new methods in exploring issues and concerns. Our clients are committed to extraordinary results – and our commitment is helping them reach those goals.
In a consulting relationship, we concentrate on your company’s operations and functioning as a corporate concern. Our input is based on our expertise as entrepreneurs, business persons, managers and experience consulting hundreds of businesses. Consulting might involve thinking through a business problem, reviewing a business plan, or exploring ideas for an organizational restructuring.
Coaching concentrates on you as a person. Our role is as facilitators, advocates, and support systems. Coaching may involve redesigning your life to meet more of your needs, challenging you to dream bigger dreams and remain focused to achieve them, eliminating stress-producing habits, and calling you on the games you play that get in your own way. And sometimes, we are just someone you can talk to, who will unconditionally support you without judging.
We are equally experienced and qualified in consulting and coaching!
We provide group coaching in a professional setting and individual coaching either by phone or in person. Individually, we typically meet for a 90-120 minute meeting each month. Typically, individual coaching involves developing a personal plan, then reviewing
any changes you’re implementing, addressing new issues that have come up, and making progress on at least one or two longer-term goals you’ve chosen. We finish the individual coaching session with a debriefing to insure we are both happy with how things have gone. You will leave each meeting with actionable to do’s to help you chart your progress.
Typically, you will sense immediate results from working together after only one session. However, for more lasting results and on-going continuous improvement, you will want to stay with us as long as you can see you are getting value. If you are not getting value, providing feedback to your coach oftentimes corrects the problem. But, at some point, you will feel the need to move on. Our groups meet once per quarter for a full year, with two additional optional years of subject content. Individual coaching plans vary in length from three months to a couple of years. Actual results may vary and will largely depend on how well we prepare together, and how committed we are to designing coaching plans that are high-impact and doable. You never work alone: together, we identify high leverage activities, and we help you do what it takes to turn them into results.
Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is about setting a future goal and acting to make the goal real. It is about creating and implementing a plan. If a client has conflicts or emotional blocks that get in their way, it may make sense to have them work through
those issues with a therapist concurrently with coaching. The coach can then provide specific, detailed facilitation in creating a satisfying life.
The Growth Coach® works with business owners who are often supported by other advisors. The Growth Coach® program provides you with a structured and recurring time-out from your business to create your 90-day goals and intentions. Since few people regularly take time-out to plan their life and business goals, we can provide you with the setting to focus on yourself.
