Common Questions

What is a Professional Life/Excutive Coach?

A Professional Life/Executive Coach is a trusted mentor who can help you discover your greatest talents and assets and identify that which keeps you from reaching your fullest potential.  It is a one-on-one relationship - a partnership - that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create what you want for yourself.  Coaching can help you strategize and acquire the tools you need to achieve your goals.  It consists of steps to help you identify and reframe your thoughts and attitudes.  It can also help you identify and break negative habits, acquire new methods of identification, and take action to achieve your maximum potential!

What types of people hire Life Coaches?

People from all walks of life work with professional Coaches to help attain their goals. Life Coaches work with people in all areas of their life including relationships, career, finance, health and more. Working with a personal Coach is not limited to any type of person, but is best for those who want to take initiative in their own life.  Excutive Coaches provide assistance to professionals, leaders, and owners in areas such as furthering leadership skills and style, developing emotional intelligence, improving organizational culture and climate, effective communication and conflict resolution, change management, and so on.  Not unlike professional athetes, people who seek out Coaches are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.

Including the financial benefits from employee retention boosted the overall ROI to 788%.  The study provided powerful new insights into how to maximize the business impact from executive coaching."  - Merrill C. Anderson, Ph.D.

"Executive coaches are not for the meek.  They are for people who value unambiguous feedback.  All coaches have one thing in common, it's that they are ruthlessly results-oriented." - Fast Company

"A new study shows, the success of performance coaching hinges on the top brass, enabling organizations to generate superior business and employment results.  Business results were 21% higher among organizations whose senior leaders "very frequently" make an effort to coach others."
- High-Impact Performance Management: Maximizing Performance Coaching

Recent studies show business coaching and executive coaching to be the most effective means for achieving sustainable growth, change and development in the individual, group and organization.
" - HR Monthly

“In a 2004 survey by Right Management consultants, 86 percent of companies said they used coaching to sharpen skills of individuals who have been identified as future organizational leaders.” - Excerpt from “What an Executive Coach Can Do for You” – Harvard Business School

Business coaching is attracting America’s top CEOs because, put simply, business coaching works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got… managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies. - FORTUNE Magazine

“A study featured in Public Personnel Management Journal reports that managers (31) that underwent a managerial training program showed an increased productivity of 22.4%. However, a second group was provided coaching following the training process and their productivity increased by 88%. Research does demonstrate that one-on-one executive coaching is of value.” F. Turner, Ph.D.

How will Coaching help?

The results will vary depending on what brings you to Coaching.  If you seek a Coach to help you in the professional arena, coaching can help you make your current job more gratifying and meaningful, gain better focus on managing your work,
enhance your leadership skills, and market your self more effectively.  If your reasons are personal, you can find a life coach to help you improve your personal relationships, resolve ongoing negative behaviors, improve your overall health, and grow your spirituality.  Coaching helps people cultivate a more balanced and enhanced life, and will help you take control of your own path! ("A man's heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps." Prov. 16:9, NKJV)

What happens in a Life Coaching Session?

Each session is tailored to the client and will vary based on individual needs.  In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin to create a plan to achieve your goals.  Periodically, I will give you assignments to help direct your progress.   We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives, and celebrate successes.  With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results.

Do I really need a personal Coach, can't I just do it by myself?

Coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations.  More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way.  A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits.  Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential.  Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.

How is Coaching different from Therapy?

While the coaching I provide can inded be therapeutic, it is not therapy.  Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues.  While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills.  There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating forward action now to attain, achieve, and maintain the future you want.

How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?

This is a personal decision however to experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I suggest individual clients make an initial three to four month commitment (we offer starter packages for all individuals).  Our Corporate packages offer a six month package or 12 month package.  With the successful conclusion of the initial packages, we will evaluate your situation together and discuss options for continued coaching.  We offer and recommend a retainer program with a multitude of benefits to returning and loyal clients, which includes additional access (a direct contact hotline), updates, advance notice and discounted pricing for e-seminars, group sessions, publications, speaking engagements, and more! 

What is your cancellation policy?

24 hour notice is required to cancel all sessions to avoid being charged for a missed session.

Is personal life coaching confidential?

That which is discussed will be held in strict confidence and not shared with others.  However, coaching discussions are not privileged for legal purposes.  The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals.  That said, executive/life coaching is a confidential process and your private information will always be protected.
