A coach is not simply there to help meet a goal. If this was the case, who needs a coach, right? We simply would just make a "to do" list or put it on the calendar, and we would get it done. Wrong!
We have all at one time experienced working towards a goal and then all of the sudden, we find ourselves forgetting about it or making excuses that we just don't have time. Or, we finally reach it, but then we stop there and eventually we fall back to where we started.
My approach to coaching is utilizing the Core Energy Process which empowers the client to make his or her own decisions through tapping into their "core" thoughts and emotions. This is the motivation that will help the client maintain the focus and drive required to achieve lasting and meaningful results in any area of their lives.
A typical coaching session with me focuses on the following:
1) Client's agenda: We discuss the client needs and I help them discover their own answers to address that need.
2) The client has the answers: It is not advice that I give, but rather I ask empowering questions and provide guidance that will drive to their desired goals. This approach gives the client the "think time" they usually don't give themselves and as a result, they learn the barriers that are holding them back, the opportunities they have available, and gain the confidence in knowing that they are capable of finding the solution.
3) Partnership & Accountability: The coach ultimately works with the client to hold them accountable to the solution the client commits too.
