Coaching is a powerful process uniquely designed to create lasting change.
Let me tell you a little more about what coaching is. Through improved communication, focus and accountability, coaching dramatically increases clients’ capacity to accomplish better results on their own. Coaching does not deliver a single solution – it permanently increases the client’s own ability to repeatedly develop solutions. Coaches shift the focus from “why” to “how.” Coaching is very results oriented, maintaining a focus on the current situation and actively developing plans for the FUTURE.
It’s important to talk about what a coach is not –
-We are not Therapists – as they typically focus on problems rooted in the past and why things happened
-We are not a Consultant – Business consultants typically use their specific knowledge and prescribe a course of action to achieve an objective. They TELL the client what needs to be done and they may even do the work that is required.
-We are not a Counselor – as Counseling aims to heal mental and psychological issues and often examines PAST events.
-We are not your Friends/Family – as they focus on their own agenda, advice, shoulds and should nots
-We are not a Sports coach – as they focus on winning, win-lose, and perfecting your form/game
There are a lot of people out there doing what they call coaching, but true coaching is done by a certified professional and in a very unique way.  
-Coaches help you be the very best you can be, inspire you and be your champion
-They get you to do things beyond what you thought you could do
-Help you come from a place of confidence, and positive energy
-Coaching helps you break through what holds you back from manifesting your dreams
-Challenges you to focus time on what you want to do
-Coaching challenges people to focus time to do what they really want to do
-Clients know the answers, coaches help you find them
-A coach will hold clients’ agenda and help you be accountable for what you say you will do
-Coaching is solution-focused
-It is a partnership where we design a plan based on the client’s agenda – coaching takes what’s inside and translates it into outer goals that you accomplish step-by-step
