Frequently Asked Questions

Would Executive/Personal/Life Coaching Be Right For Me?

In most cases the answer to this question is “yes”. The reason is simple: every individual has both the need as well as the capacity to perform better. Having to adapt to constant change, improving personal performance, or eliminating recurrent problems requires help. Facing theses challenges on your own, is not a recipe for success.

What is Executive/Personal/Life Coaching?

Coaching is a unique collaborative project between the client and the coach. It is structured around a confidential one-to-one relationship that improves executive performance, personal effectiveness, while reducing stress. The coaching process focuses not only on your executive leadership role, but on you as a complete person.

Coaching provides the client with the needed opportunity to step back, seek appropriate clarity, reevaluate assumptions and experiences and gain fresh perspectives.

This venture between client and coach is tailored around you for the purpose of developing your existing base of talents and abilities - then aligning them with your background, education, formal career training, experience and available resources.

How Does The Coaching Process Work?

The executive coaching process is about optimizing your personal and professional success in correlation with your definition for success.

Today’s marketplace and economics serve to remind you of the critical need to develop extraordinary inner resources, resolve, knowledge and leadership skills.

Open and meaningful dialogue allows the client and coach to determine client need and then identify clear objectives. Initial meetings will address confidentiality and the mutual design of a process to achieve the desired outcomes. During the development of the clients plan, key strengths, weaknesses and developmental requirements will be examined. The use of questionnaires, assessments, interviews and performance observation may be utilized to provide added depth to the work, while revealing the blind-spots. Through these protocols, the client more fully develops from inside-out.

What About Privacy?

The coaching relationship is based on mutual trust. In this regard our session dialogue is completely private. Personal privacy can be a consideration for a client’s decision to conduct their coaching sessions by phone. Coaching calls typically provide also less distractions. As there is no personal agenda, you receive confidential and impartial third party coaching consultations. The only focus is on the client’s success.
