Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that unlocks their greatest personal and professional potential.
It provides an opportunity to live well, grow forward, and flourish in life. It's learning how to reach new heights!
Give it a try...Reach your hand up in the air as high as it will go.
Now push your fingers toward the sky and extend your shoulder upward. Go just a bit more by standing on you tippy toes and stretching your whole body skyward. Now lower your hand down and give yourself a pat on the back. With a simple bit of coaching you literally reached beyond what you originally thought possible. You reached new heights!
Counseling / Consulting / COACHING
Although there is some overlap; coaching, counseling, and consulting are different.
- Counseling, like archeology, recovers items from the past and tries to piece them together for a more complete story of the present.
- Consulting, like a physician, takes a set of symptoms and in his or her expert opinion prescribes a solution for healing.
- Coaching, like a sports coach, develops a player's skills, builds strength, creates a plan for winning, and cheers one on to victory.
"Life Coaching offers a shortcut to achieving your dreams. Whether it's to enhance your career, fulfill your goals, help you to grow and scale your business, coaching offers a golden ticket of sorts to achieving you life and business dreams" ~ Forbes.com
"Part consultant, part motivational speaker, part therapist and part rent-a-friend, coaches work with managers, entrepreneurs, and just plain folks, helping them define and achieve their goals — career, personal, or most often, both." ~ Newsweek
" Coaches have the ability to view things from afar — in what some call ‘helicopter vision’ — and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often they can act as a sounding board through tough decisions, help sharpen skills, and motivate." ~ CFO Magazine
