Ins & Outs


Coaching is a one-on-one consulting relationship between you and a qualified coach. In essence, you and your coach become partners who are both intent on helping you achieve your desired results.

Your coach will help you focus on what you want to achieve in various areas of your life and help you develop and implement an action plan to achieve your full potential. Individual coaching often begins with a focus on business or career achievement and overlaps into other areas of life because our lives generally can’t be separated into neat little categories.

Ins & Outs

Your dreams and desires will no doubt impact several areas of your life – career, finances, personal life, and health, for instance.

In-Person or By Phone

proximity and your personal preferences

Coaching is generally done via in-person meetings or via telephone calls and discussions. Both techniques are beneficial to clients, and how your individual coaching is conducted will often depend on your physical proximity to your coach and your personal preferences. Meetings or telephone calls are scheduled in advance on a regular basis at intervals you and your coach determine will best meet your needs and your budget.

  • During your time with your coach, you’ll focus specifically on what’s going on in your life – and what you want to see happening in your life.

  • Together, you’ll create a plan to make those things happen.

  • A qualified coach performs several vital roles that are instrumental to your success.

  • A coach is only successful when you succeed!

  • Helping you succeed is your coach’s ultimate goal!

What Is A Coach?

A qualified coach will:

Listen to you
Help you identify and prioritize your personal values and priorities
Help you identity and articulate your dreams for your life
Help you set long-term and short-term goals to help you work toward the fulfillment of your dreams
Help identify your personal motivators
Help you identify and remove potential obstacles or barriers to your success
Help you try new things and master new skills
Provide you with new ideas and resources you’ve never considered
Brainstorm with you
Identify resources you can utilize
Mentor you
Encourage and support you
Hold you accountable for your actions (or lack of actions)
Provide you with valuable feedback you can use
Help you measure your progress
Celebrate your successes with you!

Hiring a coach is a long-term commitment to yourself.

Your coach will be there to help you identify what is truly important to you and develop a plan to achieve that.

Your coach will be standing on the sidelines encouraging and supporting you as you take the actions necessary to achieve the goals that lead to your dreams.

Your coach will be there at the finish line to congratulate you and help you gear up for the next race.

Unlike reading books and attending seminars

Coaching is an ongoing process, and it’s very interactive.

Individual coaching essentially becomes a relationship – a supportive, mentoring relationship to help you achieve your potential.

A truly great coach will tell you how to do something, show you how to do something (if necessary), and then cheer you on while you do it!

A coach will be a safe sounding board and a confidential advisor. Your coach will be your number one fan, but also your biggest challenger – stretching you to achieve more than you could have achieved on your own.

But remember, a coach is not a crutch.

What A Coach Is Not

A coach is a professional consultant who always keeps your best interest as his/her highest priority.

As a professional, your coach will maintain a focus on you and help you to achieve what you desire in your life. YOU are the coach’s primary focus.

YOU are the coach’s primary focus.

A good coach will brainstorm with you, let you sound off when necessary, and maintain your confidentiality.

A good coach will guide, support, and mentor you to develop the skills, attitudes, and motivations you need to realize your goals and live the life you always imagined.

A Coach is NOT:

A Potential Romantic Interest.
The head and the heart frequently pull people in two different directions. A professional coach will never become personally involved with a client because it will impair the critical element of objectivity.

Your Best Friend.
Friends are great, but friends also frequently have two very different agendas. A professional coach will always keep your agenda firmly in mind. A coach may tell you things your friends never would – things that are sometimes difficult to hear from our friends – but are critical for your continuing development. Above all, a coach will always have your best interests at heart.

Your Therapist.
Occasionally, you’ll share information with your coach about the things going on in your life. But a professional coach isn’t trained or equipped to deal with relationship issues, analyze your past, or deal with issues like depression. A coach isn’t a therapist or psychologist.

A Crutch.
While your coach will support and encourage you, a professional coach will not allow you to become dependent on him/her. A coach is there to help you, but not to do it for you.

Why Companies Choose to Invest In Coaching as Part of an Overall Developmental Approach


If you are a Professional in the Leadership Development field, you know that you can invest a lot to produce quality programs, but you may still fall short of the final result you are looking for—evidenced change in behavior.

1. Even the best Leadership Programs result in just 20% of follow-on participants achieving their goals over time. Coaching gets it to 80% or more. Participants reach new levels of understanding and awareness in programs, but get stuck on the how-to’s of applying insights to their own real-time issues. Coaching partners with a leader to continually apply insights to real-time and real-world issues over a period of four to six months. Coaching greatly increases commitment, follow-through, and long-term application to leading to real changes in behavior use Coaching alone or have it immediately follow a Leadership classroom program.

2. For Senior Leaders or others that need development, a 3-5 day leadership program may not be the answer. Coaching works well where ongoing quick, and effective support is needed at intervals, as support for important new hires, to navigate through sticky relationship issues, when maneuvering through a tough political landscape is crucial, for the development of high potentials.

3. To increase retention of high level executives and high potential leaders. Coaching provides an added edge to these critical resources. Companies report higher ratings on evaluations of performance and faster promotion rates among those coached. In almost all cases, coaching focuses career progression issues and helps a leader to develop long-range strategies and day-to-day tactics for success. Coaching also often deals with boss relationships which are critical to retention.

4. A team workshop gets a team off to a good start, but the team leader, and often team members, need more support when real challenges confront the team in the weeks and months after the workshop. Coaching can supplement team development and keep it going. Complete teams or critical team members can be coached for greater synergy.
