What is Coaching?
Coaching is an educational approach to helping people (and organizations) enhance personal performance. It has been used for many years in the arts and athletics. In these fields, a coach is considered absolutely necessary for an individual or team to achieve star status.
Since coaching has been so successful in helping athletes and artists achieve their goals, it has made a rapid expansion into other areas. The coaching process is particularly valuable for those who are emotionally stable and want to move ahead in their careers.
Let’s say that you’re a professional, executive, artist or student. Though you’re doing well, you know you’re capable of doing even better. Yet, it’s not happening or it’s happening too slowly for your satisfaction.
You’re not sure if it relates to anxiety, self-sabotage, procrastination, negative energy, poor communication skills, relationship difficulties or the need for increased knowledge about self-presentation, group dynamics, hierarchical power, marketing strategies or organizational structure.
Think of how helpful it would be if you could discuss your situation with an objective and non-judgmental coach. Though I am not an expert in your field, I am an expert in overcoming procrastination, improving motivation, problem solving, creative thinking, group dynamics, communication skills, relationship skills, emotional expression and modulation.
Working as a team, we begin by defining the problem.
You may be deep in the forest with neither roadmap or compass.
You may be stuck in the mud just inching along.
Or, you may be doing well but would appreciate a tailwind at your back.
Functioning as a motivator, strategist, idea person and nurturing taskmaster, I help you develop the necessary skills to confront the challenges you face. This is accomplished by creating options and strategies, establishing a plan of action with a timeline, exploring resistance, bolstering confidence, resolving conflicts and encouraging you to follow through on your game plan.
Coaching sessions are flexible in terms of their frequency. Most people begin with weekly sessions, moving to less frequent sessions as momentum is established. Coaching takes place in person or over the phone. Phone sessions are particularly useful for those who live a distance from my office which is located on Long Island, 30 minutes from New York City.
