What is Coaching?

Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.


As a coach, I will assist you in….

  • Setting and planning your goals,

  • Creating awareness around potential blocks, derailers, and opportunities,

  • Defining actions and steps to help you move forward and finally,

  • Managing the process and defining what accountability means to you.


Coaching is Not...

Therapy – it is about your future, not your past or fixing anything

Mentoring – it is about you, not my experiences

Consulting – it is about your solutions, not my thoughts

Nevertheless I will leverage mentoring and consulting approaches when given permission by my client. You can learn more about my approach.


Who is an Executive?

"Executive" is a person who has leadership responsibility (financial/operational/ people) and/or responsibility for policy formulation and/or makes significant contributions to an organization.

This article (here) does a great job of breaking down the difference between executive (things of management) and leadership (people focused) coaching. In my coaching I go between both.


What is the Role of a Coach?

I am your partner who helps you clarify your goals (personal or professional) and then achieve them through planning, action, and reflection.

I am here to help you identify your areas of strength and your areas of growth, and to build a development plan with you based on your goals. I am “in your corner” and will support and challenge you. I can also be your sounding board, thought partner, and a someone to hold you accountable.


How Can I Use Coaching?

You can think of coaching as a way of committing to your continuous growth. You can benefit from a coach at any point in your career. Most people use my coaching for:

  • Overcoming internal blocks to success: I can help you identify your innate preferences, limiting beliefs and assumptions that are keeping you from taking your personal and professional life to the next level. 

  • Improving professional and personal relationships and communication: I can partner with you to close the gap between how things are, and how you would like them to be concerning effective communication and productive relationships.

  • Ongoing personal and professional development: Together, we can set goals for you and work on the skills that will help you become the leader and person you want to be.

  • Situational support: Whatever challenge your work or life throws at you, you will have me by your side to help you talk through tough situations, prepare for an important meeting or a difficult conversation.

  • Career and business planning and transitions: I can be your thought-partner when it comes to planning your next move, and help you outline your vision.


Could I Benefit From Coaching?

The best athletes have coaches, and so do the most effective leaders. I can support you in various ways, including:

  • Having a different perspective from you. Often, we are limited in our growth by limited self-awareness. I can see the situation in a way you might not be able to.

  • Being on your team.  I am your advocate and yet independent from you in a way that is different from anyone else.


Coaching can be used to

  • Build executive presence, leadership, and other soft skills

  • Improve productivity

  • Increase ROI and learning retention

  • Increase employee retention and engagement


Coaching can be leveraged for almost any challenge or situation:

  • Better engage with members of your team

  • Deal with a significant change or problem

  • Develop a strategic plan and realize it

  • Overcome an obstacle that has you feeling stuck

  • Increase self-awareness and discover the beliefs that limit you

  • Develop a more satisfying career and personal relationships

  • Become more efficient in your work, so you don’t feel behind and overwhelmed

  • Rebuild momentum for an existing goal

  • Re-align your actions and your ideas, and hold yourself accountable to your goals

  • Leverage your strengths and innate preference to get to the next level
