What is coaching

Coaching is a powerful practice that addresses specific projects, professional and personal goals, business challenges, and career transitions. Coaching examines what is going on right now, identifies any obstacles or challenges, and creates strategies for success. With a coach you choose a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. Read my articles on coaching here.

While therapists often look to the past and target psychological illness, a coach focuses on the future and seeks concrete goals.

“Where do you see yourself in five or 10 years? It’s one of those questions many job-seekers dread during an interview, but it can be daunting to answer on a personal level as well. Amid all your responsibilities, activities and projects, it’s sometimes hard to see the big picture and easy to become overwhelmed or feel like you’re lacking direction. That’s where a life coach can come in.”
A. Pawlowski, CNN

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.” Napoleon Hill

Together we can make this happen
