If you know what you want to do but you’re having trouble moving forward, coaching is the right fit for you. I will help you understand what is holding you back by asking you questions that tap into what is really motivating you, strategizing how to move past your barriers and providing accountability and motivation.
Coaching helps you create momentum. You know you are capable of more and coaching will push you past your limits.
How does it work?
You come to me with a goal (or multiple goals) and I ask questions…
- What’s holding you back?
- How will you get there?
- Why do you want it?
- What do you need to do to get there?
- When will you do that?
- How will you make that happen?
You come up with a plan for moving forward and take action every day to move you closer to your goals and past the limits you’ve previously experienced. You get results. Lasting results. Meaningful results.
I believe change starts from the inside out. For example, when working on weight loss, we know that that comes about as a result of actions: choosing foods that nourish and fill you, moving more, taking care of yourself. Whether or not those actions come easily depend on how you’re feeling and how you feel is a direct result of what you’re thinking. Rather than eternally tinkering with the end points, I target behavior change where it starts: with your thoughts. Together, we identify what beliefs are holding you back and create new ones that will help you sustain the actions you need to take to move towards your goal.
I’m not here to help you achieve a “quick fix.” Coaching is all about creating long term, meaningful changes. It’s not necessarily an easy process, because it involves being willing to examine your motivation, your desires, your frustrations. As your coach, I will challenge you and ask difficult questions. I will also be a source of unwavering support and an objective listener.
Are you ready?
What makes a good coaching client? You must be:
- Ready to invest your time in this process. I always tell my clients “the coaching happens between the calls.” What you do between our calls matters as much as what we talk about.
- Willing to explore your thoughts and your beliefs. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you want different results from what you’ve been getting, you’ll need to be willing to try things differently.
- Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. See above.
- Have a good sense of humor. I make really bad jokes – you should probably be willing to laugh at them for us to work well together.
