In my work as a coach for over a decade,
I have been asked many questions by potential clients. They include:
I started looking at questions like this with a dictionary.
Coaching is defined as: one who instructs or trains, especially: one who instructs players in the fundamentals of a sport and directs team strategy.
Typical definitions of coaching take us to the world of athletics. In the world of business, a coach helps you to set goals that match your highest potential, create a realistic plan to achieve those goals, discover and then eliminate any tendency to sabotage your own success, and finally will hold you responsible for achieving those goals within a specific time period.
Coaching teaches you how to find the answers within yourself.
This is my goal for you when you begin coaching me. I will offer you insight and advice, but the primary purpose of coaching is to help you to find your own answers so you can achieve the goals you set for yourself, with confidence and BOLD Action!
You need a coach if you want help:
A coach asks questions to bring out your unique abilities, helps you to gain clarity on your vision and plan for the future, and stays with you while you implement changes in your plans, thoughts, and actions.
A coach holds you accountable for what you say you’ll do, gives you a push to do more than you would do on your own, and helps you overcome limiting beliefs that are holding you back from success.
A coach holds space for you to become the best version of yourself while you boldly create the business of your dreams.
Coaching is not:
After kicking off our BOLD Action coaching series, clients meet with me, via telephone or Zoom, every other week. Clients have recurring appointments that are agreed upon as we begin our coaching relationship.
I ask my clients to make a commitment to our coaching relationship for a year. Any new actions put into practice today may take from three to six months to show results. BOLD Action coaching can be very effective for short-term change. Customers often find coaching effective over 12 to 18 months. The learning that takes place creates results that continue for one to three years. Business Coaching is not meant to be a “quick fix” or a short-term relationship.
If you’re asking this question, it may be the right time for you.
Clients in my coaching programs typically fall into three categories:
It’s easy to question yourself when beginning a new, different path for your business. An initial call from me may help you to recognize if I am the right coach for you and can serve you as you deem necessary. Let’s chat about starting your BOLD Action coaching program.
You can certainly achieve many goals on your own!
By working with me in BOLD Action coaching, however, you will be able to do bigger things, set bolder goals, and get results faster. Commitment, accountability, and follow-through are some of the most valuable components of the coaching process, and they are why people who work with me make much more progress than working alone.
I also give you access to a set of tools, techniques, and processes that are proven to work, and you benefit from being exposed to a different perspective that challenges your approach and provides you with new ideas.
Athletes and CEOs know that they can not make it to the top by themselves. They understand the value of a trained, experienced professional who helps them identify the best direction and provides them with unbiased support and unparalleled feedback. There aren’t any athletes going to the Olympics without a coach, and no football players going to the Super Bowl without a coach. Shouldn’t you get the same advantage?
I’m excited to talk to you about your journey and see if we are a fit to work together!
