Life coaching is a new and growing field offering an action-oriented professional partnership around identifying & actualizing your goals.
Create a clear concise vision; learn to set simple, attainable goals; receive weekly accountability, support overcoming challenges & positive feedback; build resources; celebrate successes.
Coaching takes a value driven approach to setting appropriate goals based on what is most important to you - deep inside - and your current 'readiness to change'. The reality of our human lives is we often aren't clear on our priorities, haven't learned ways to manage conflicting values, and it becomes challenging to balance multiple areas of life as we evolve, circumstances change, and in different environments and relationships. Take the time to step back, reflect, and get clear on what's truly important to you.
With the bigger picture of your greatest dreams and aspirations in mind look at where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow. Then we'll work together to create a realistic plan to bridge the space between the two.
Focus on a single goal or harmonize the many areas of a fulfilling life such as family, friends, romantic partnership, work, health and wellness, fun & play, financial, environment, spirituality, and creativity. Learn to prioritize, organize, and balance insight and action for greater results at work, increased connection and intimacy in relationships, and an overall sense of peace, serenity, and happiness. Reach your goals, enjoy the process, and keep your integrity intact.
Whatever spiritual path you follow, or religion you do or don't practice, coaching will increase your belief in a benevolent and gentle force that holds your life, your dreams and the greater good as it's highest priority. Reconnect to the synchronicity and magic of life's unfolding and restore or deepen your faith in the divine love that lives inside of each of us - nourishing our unique life's purpose and wishes come true.
Coaching can be done in-person or virtually - by phone, email or Skype, with a 45-60 minute weekly session followed by an email with the new week's goals clearly organized by category. Coaching Programs start with a 2-Hour Design Session, where we'll discuss your big picture vision, map out the first 3-Month's Goals (identifying your Motivation and Strategies to manage possible challenges for each), and list Available & Needed Resources. From there, smaller weekly goals will be structured around taking incremental steps toward each larger goal, with periodic reference to the larger vision. The convenience and flexibility of optional virtual sessions makes it easy to keep the commitment to yourself whatever type of schedule you have or surprises life offers. Individuals, couples or small groups call into a conference call line at a set time each week for sessions. If your child is home sick or you need to travel for business unexpectedly maintaining positive forward momentum and progess is simple. It's easy to add a personal training or yoga component to your program to reach health and wellness goals, too.
The coaching relationship is something very special. For some it is a place to openly consider that making their dreams a reality is actually possible, for some, it is the only time in their week devoted enitrely to themselves, for some it is a place to heal. The essence of coaching holds that the client is fully whole and resourceful all on their own. The coach's role is to help offer guidance, support and structure around evoking the internal wisdom that is already there and ready to be brought to the surface and birthed in the world. That said, most people come to coaching for the expertise and feedback they believe the coach may offer as part of the coaching process to help make the right decisions easier. It is ok to ask your coach for their opinion and for the coach to to provide insight or ideas to consider. In the end, the choice is always yours.
Dear Debra, One never knows the invaluably of a Life Coach until one finds herself so lost due to unforeseen and upsetting life circumstances. Even though I was trying for a Vacation Getaway, I ended up being the winner of the 2011 Lindt Chocolate contest. It could not come at a more appropriate time and was a true Blessing to be able to speak to you on a bi-weekly basis. There is a saying that once in the forest; one cannot see all the trees. And that is where you came in. You could see the forest and all the trees while offering insight, tools, and actionable items to help bring me to peace with where things stood and how to move forward (even ever so slowly at my own pace).
It was funny when I spoke with Family / Friends about my Life Coach experience. Many would just pass it off, but when asked to put pen to paper on their Ideal Mate or what goals personally (not professionally) they would want, it got quiet and drove a whole new conversation. From this one year experience, I learned that time must be spent in developing weekly / bi-weekly goals for oneself. For me, that even meant making sure I did something for myself once per week (aka Self-Care) as I never allotted time or energy to it. Anyhow, it was an extreme pleasure working with you. There is no one else I know that has the training, the experience, and the sheer knowledge to help me develop and direct my personal life better especially towards the positive. Thank You, Chaelynne – Washington, MI
