The name ‘coaching’ uses a metaphor from the sports community, where coaching is an established activity. I am very familiar with this activity given that my first job out of college was as a head baseball coach in a small college in the Midwest. In this position my responsibility was to partner with, and help the athletes I recruited try to reach excellence. This is also the case with my professional coaching clients with whom I develop an ongoing partnership that helps them produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives.
As a part of the process, I will help make you more aware of your reasons for current opinions, beliefs, attitudes, actions and goals. I will also help you learn new skills and provide you with tools to build a more satisfying and successful future that is consistent with your goals and ambitions.
More specifically, as a professional coach I help you:
- Discover, clarify, and align with what you want to achieve;
- Encourage self-discovery;
- Help you set rational goals and performance objectives;
- Elicit your self-generated solutions and strategies;
- Provide you with tailored and effective strategies and tactics for achieving your goals;
- Help you learn to effectively evaluate and reward approximations toward ultimate successes, and
- Hold you responsible and accountable.
Finally, with regard to coaching, I’m a firm believer in the old adage that states that “You cannot teach someone to go where you have not been.” I make this point because frankly, I’ve “been there and done that” when it comes to solving many difficult individual, interpersonal and organizational problems. In addition to the real life experiences one gets after being married and raising a family, I have travelled the world and worked as a clinician and at the highest levels of local and national organizations. These experiences, taken together with my extensive training allow me to provide you with a very broad and unique perspective on any number of things you may want to accomplish as you strive to become your highest and best self.
