Coaching is a unique opportunity to focus and move forward on your personal, professional or organizational goals through the exploration of ideas and candid dialogue with a confidential and unbiased thinking partner.

What are the Benefits of Coaching?

  • Space to hear your own voice - to talk something through and gain perspective
  • Awareness of perspectives, beliefs, and attitudes that may be holding you back
  • Support and confidence to "lean in" and make bold moves
  • Clarity on your values and what you stand for, which leads to greater conviction
  • Ideas for ways to improve that you may not see - awareness of blind spots

Personal coaching may occur as part of a larger consultancy in which the coach doubles as a consultant. Thus, the line between coaching and consulting is sometimes a bit blurred. Coaching, however, always involves a commitment between the coach and a specific individual in which they agree to

  • Be accountable to each other
  • Work jointly toward specific outcomes that enlarge the client's personal options and capabilities
  • Maximize the client's ownership responsibility for achieving those outcomes
  • Deeper learnings - about yourself, how you're perceived, where you can improve
  • Faster action - advancing things faster and with greater precision
