Does Coaching Work?
Coaching works because of three unique features:
Synergy: Client and coach become a team, focusing on the client's
goals and needs and accomplishing more than the client would alone.
Structure: With a coach, a client takes more actions, thinks
bigger and gets the job done, thanks to the accountability which the
Expertise: The coach knows how to help entrepreneurs make more
money, make better decisions, set the best goals, and restructure their
professional and personal lives for maximum productivity.

How Do You Do This?
I coach during regular, weekly sessions by telephone and / or in person,
whichever is more convenient. Clients bring an agenda of items to the
call, and I help them to solve the problems and make the most of the
my clients have a safe place to talk about your needs, goals, problems,
accomplishments, insights, disturbances, discoveries, dilemmas, shifts
in understanding, complaints, promises, feelings, fears, new ideas,
financial results, value-added, progress, and decisions.
are taking on a large goal I help them design the project and provide
the support and structure needed to make sure it gets done. I work to
bring out the client's best by offering advice, suggestions, insights,
observations, ideas for next steps, professional input, and supportive
materials and information. I expect a lot from my clients, help them
strategize and, together, we celebrate their successes.
between sessions I may ask a client to try on a new idea we've discussed,
or complete a task to stimulate their thinking. We may also talk by
e-mail or phone between sessions.
Should I Look For In A Coach?
The right coach brings out your best, consistently. To do this, the
coach you select should pass the following 3 tests :
1) Does this coach have a track record of helping someone like me accomplish
the goals I want?
2) Do I feel good and motivated to act when with this coach?
3) Will this coach keep up with me - and ahead of me - as I grow?
That's it. You can always check references and try out the coach for
a month to see if he or she is really the right one for you. I work
well with three types of clients: 1) Entrepreneurs and small-office
professionals who are smart, quick and ready to do what it takes to
reach blockbuster goals, 2) Individuals who are making substantial changes
in their personal and professional lives, and 3) Individuals who are
working on an important project.
Do I Start With a Coach?
We will begin with a special introductory session to get to know each
other. During this session, which is free, I will want to hear about
your goals, priorities, dreams as well as your challenges. This session
will give you a chance to get comfortable with me. Together we will
outline a game plan to reach your goals.
Following this session you will receive a welcome package with a client
information sheet for you to complete, a policies and procedures document,
and a few other items to help get us started.
