What you can expect:

Flexibility & Creativity

You never quite know what's going to happen and that calls for the ability to come up with new solutions when necessary and/or discard ideas when they become ineffective. At the same time, the coach should be comfortable with ambiguity, fast change and lots of uncertainty. We use every method available to today's savvy entrepreneur - social media, Internet marketing strategies, teleseminars, webinars, video and audio, podcasts, and much more.

Undivided Attention & Support

Your time is valuable and we will ALWAYS value it. We will create a supportive environment to grow as you do life-changing work and make life-changing decisions.

Interpersonal Skills

The coach must be adept at handling complex interpersonal dynamics and be able to deal with a wide range of personalities. Good listening skills are critical.

Integrity

Coaching often involves sensitive personal issues and highly confidential information. Honesty, mutual trust, and the ability to keep a confidence are essential.

Direct Talk and Tough Love

Ultimately, coaching is all about achieving real life-changing results. The coach needs to be able to hold people accountable and demand tangible outcomes.

Entrepreneurial Insight

The goal of business coaching is to strengthen a person's performance as it relates to both individual and corporate objectives. An entrepreneurial background is critical to success.

Does Coaching Work?

People seeking coaching are self-guided, so the answer is yes. In order to make a good match between what you want out of the coaching experience and the person who can guide you throughout the coaching process, you will need to be cautious and ask good questions.

How to know if you need a mentor or coach...

People seek out coaches for many reasons. The people we coach are usually working through some significant transition in their life or career and believe that something is holding them back. The most valuable results of the coaching experience are: brainstorming, another viewpoint, encouragement, and being accountable to the coach.

Coaching is not a substitute for therapy and it's not business strategy. You will do the work. The coach guides by asking the right questions that help the client figure out what behavior needs to change and how best to change it. You will learn to engage in authentic conversations and self-assessments to know yourself better.
