Life Coaching is a thought-provoking creative process that inspires you to maximize your potential. The process is focused on helping you identify and achieve goals that lead to a living a meaningful and authentic life.
Coaching is about YOU – what you want, what you need and what you strive for to make REAL CHANGES.
People come to coaching when they want something more or need something different in their lives. They may know precisely what it is or they may have a sense that something is missing in their life or not quite right, but not know just what that is.
An experienced coach provides expertise, processes, and feedback that enhance your journey of self discovery, strengthens your skills and talents, and increases the likelihood of your success.
Although you are ultimately responsible for taking the actions necessary to achieve your goals, your coach is always there, in your corner, looking outward with you toward the future you want.
Both research and common sense tell us that as human beings, we are most deeply satisfied by incremental progress towards a meaningful goal, freely chosen. Development of this goal begins to happen when clients clarify what is of highest value and commit to creating the life they want based on those values. By helping define what is most meaningful, Life Coaching helps you move from aspiration to action to achievement of that goal.
Your first full coaching session can be either in person or by phone. Most coaching is done by phone, but that is determined by coach and client beforehand. In either case, you will have already worked with your coach to prepare for your session.
The first step to explore your interest in coaching is to schedule a complimentary thirty-minute introductory call. Before the call you will receive by email a few simple forms for you to fill out and return to the coach.
These forms give you a chance to take a look at your life, as you are living it now, and think about what areas you would like to enhance or change. This should take about fifteen minute or less. Using the information on these forms, you and the coach choose a topic that you would like some immediate help with and do a simple brief coaching session. You will then have an experience of life coaching, not just information about life coaching.
You’ll have a chance to ask any questions that will help you to understand coaching better and to determine if this modality is likely to provide the help you want. You’ll talk about what you can expect from your coach and what your coach will expect from you throughout a coaching partnership.
Having a better sense about life coaching, you can then schedule a ninety-minute Foundational Coaching session.
At this Foundational Coaching session, we will work on the goals you specifically identified as important. And we will begin to design together the coaching relationship you need and want. Some of the areas usually covered during the first few sessions are:
- What’s working well in your life and what could be working better
- What’s most important for you to get from life coaching
- How to couple your passion to your strengths and talents to create the life you want
At the end of the Foundational Coaching session you will have learned more about yourself and what you need and want. You will have greater understanding and a deeper awareness of the questions you have identified. And hopefully, will also have gained both a deeper awareness of, and a deeper curiosity about Life Coaching and how it can help you have a fulfilled and joyous life. At this point, you can chose to commit to a series of coaching sessions designed to lead you to achieve your goals and highest potential.
What some have said about Life Coaching:
“Coaching with Kate was extremely valuable to me as I took on new challenges within my professional life. She helped me focus my concerns and to see concrete and easily applicable ways of changing my own thoughts or interactions with others. Together we created a positive, fun, and easy coaching environment that I would look forward to each week.”
“As my coach, Kate was the perfect partner, supporter, cheerleader and spiritual guide for me throughout my transition.
Throughout our coaching relationship, she helped me to see myself, and believe in my value; and to formulate short and long term goals, and helped me to believe that I could reach them and to be persistent in my efforts. In much less time than I had anticipated, I accepted a position of more responsibility and opportunity than I had imagined. I am really enjoying this job, and coaching helped me to get here.”
“Kate is a shepherd, she cares deeply about those that she works with, her heart is enormous and she created a safe place for me to dream big and take risks to get to where I needed to go. Thank you, Kate”
