Coaching is about many things. However, principally it is about change. It is about developing emotional intelligence and consicous awareness. In business, coaching is a leadership behavior that lies at the opposite end of the spectrum to command and control, and in effect addresses the whole person, not just ‘the role’ and business issues. The Coaching Process is diverse and expansive. It can cover a breadth of issues, such as dealing with the immediate obstacles that are preventing growth, personal communication and impact as well as building the vision and plan for a life’s dream and goal. Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative partnership that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped resources of imagination, productivity and leadership.

Why everyone needs a coach…
RELATIONSHIPS - As a leader of people, you know that the quality of your leadership is determined by the quality of your relationships with those you lead; thus, determining the level of performance you receive in return. The quality of relationships the business owner has with staff, suppliers, associates, partners, and customers will have a significant influence on bottom-line success. There are also our personal relationships- the bedrocks of our lives! We might not always think about how the quality of our personal relationships impacts our professional success, but deep down, we know these are the most important relationships of all. The bottom-line is, regardless of your vocation in life, if you are to be successful, you cannot do it alone.
INFLUENCE - The most important skill to master in business today is the art and skill of influence. Think about it. The ability to influence others isn’t a “nice to have” in life today – it’s absolutely essential; and yet, I can guarantee that if you’re a product of the same education system I am, you didn’t attend a single class on how to successfully influence other people. If leaders are to be successful in their primary objective of improving the performance and results of those they manage or lead, it is imperative that they be effective in influencing others. The problem, however, is that most of us are not very effective in our influence. The truth is, this essential life-skill differs depending on the situation. Leading others effectively is not dependent upon the title you hold or your given position of authority. Your leadership should bring about improved results and greater success in every aspect of the lives you influence. People do not want to be managed; they want to be led. Talent wants to be inspired, not measured. Talent strives to be, do, and have more. We can help you master the art of influence.
THINKING - When someone gives you advice, tells you what to do, or provides you with your answers, you don’t have to think. All of our lives, we have been programmed to avoid thinking. In school, you were taught what to think and not how to think. Even in our jobs, we are advised, directed, and told what to do. We are put on training programs that teach us what to do. We go to the gym and are told what to do. We turn on TV or social media and are told what to do. We are all products of our environment; our parents, teachers, bosses, religious leaders, and other well-meaning authority figures have all taught us what to think and not how to think. The people you lead can perform at a much higher level if they are empowered to think for themselves. Henry Ford recognized this issue and observed, “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably why so few partake in it.” The truth is, most people are dreadfully uncomfortable with the idea of thinking and will avoid it at all costs. We live in a society engineered to disengage the mind. Entertainment rules. Television, computer games, movies, and all other media have designed us to dread and avoid the need to think. George Bernard Shaw said it best, “two percent of people think, three percent think they think, and ninety-five percent would rather die than think.” A leader empowers people to think into better results.
RESULTS - If you are not consciously choosing your thoughts, you’re thinking as you’ve always thought. The funny thing about the creative process is that it will continue to recreate the same kind of results over and over again. This is why most persistently fail to make improvements in their lives; they lack an understanding of how the creative process works and how to influence it to work in their favor. Join me in a coaching process. Allow me the privilege of walking you through why this coaching process is so critical to your success as a leader. Coaching is the only means by which you can successfully interrupt the habitual ways of thinking that keep you and your team trapped in a perpetual cycle of continuous underachievement. I would be honored to take you through a powerful transformational process; a highly-interactive coaching process that will have a greater impact on your results. At the end of the day, it’s the results that matter. That is my explicit promise to you!
