What is a coach?

A coach is a catalyst for positive change in your life. Coaches have experience in transforming their own lives, and they have the ability to midwife your own transformation. As a wise, reliable, helpful partner, your coach empowers you to be more effective and efficient at bringing about desired changes and overcoming obstacles.

Why does coaching work?

In a word, synergy. When the intentions and energies of two people are combined, an effect is generated that is greater than the sum of the two individual efforts. The support you receive from your coach accelerates your success.

Why hire a coach?

A coach keeps you focused. A coach helps you brainstorm. A coach guides you to think more clearly through an emotional or stressful situation. A coach offers you action plans, and serves as a support system and sounding board. A coach asks the right questions to help you find the answers which are already deep within you.

Who needs a coach?

Anyone with a goal or a plan, a problem or a roadblock, a dream or a vision.

What you can expect from me as your Coach:

  • I expect your best.
  • I make direct requests.
  • I give straight advice.
  • I give homework.
  • I expect you to use, but not depend on, me.
  • I am honest.
  • I support you unconditionally.
  • I believe in you infinitely.
  • Our relationship is confidential.

What I expect from you as a Coaching client:

  • You are willing to know and speak your truth.
  • You are willing to stretch.
  • You see the need for, and take responsibility for, change.
  • You value yourself enough to pay your coach.
  • You value and honor our relationship (call on time, do the work, etc.).
  • You are internally sourced and powered.
  • You have a vision.
  • You take pleasure in achievement.
  • You are on a spiritual path.

How does the Coaching work?

I charge $150 an hour, and unless we agree otherwise, I will allow an hour for our sessions. You’ll call me the appointed hour for our session. If you need to reschedule your call, give me at least 24 hours notice. If you have an emergency, we’ll work around it.

You may call or e-mail me between your scheduled calls if you need advice, have a problem, or can’t wait to share a success. I do ask that you keep the extra calls to 5 to 10 minutes.

If I ever say or do anything that doesn’t feel right to you, please bring it up. I promise to do what is necessary to have you satisfied. When you have decided–and you will–that you have outgrown our coaching relationship, please give me a two week notice so that we can complete any projects we are working on, plan a strategy for your future and have closure as coach and client.
