The 'C's of Coaching
The 'C's of Coaching


If you are inspired to learn more about coaching, please contact me for a complimentary coaching consultation. Is it time to take action to kick your life up a notch?


Communication - With your coach, you'll learn how to communicate more powerfully and clearly with co-workers, your staff, family and friends. Having a coach to unpack communication glitches and practice new ways to communicate will lead to stronger relationships.


Clarity - Discover what's most important to you and how to live and act with focus. At times we all want to have a clearer picture of where we are going, how we want to live, and how to get there. We constantly have choices to make and with your coach you will explore options and gain clarity to make effective decisions.


Compassion - Your coach will model compassion and help you to nurture compassion for yourself and others. So often we forget to pat ourselves on the back first so that we are able to share our caring with others.


Creativity - We'll explore how you might live a more creative life. What would it take to bring back or increase your creative spark?


Connection - We all yearn to feel connected to others at work and in our community. When you are more connected, what are you able to accomplish?


Career - Career is an important topic in coaching for many people. Some of the questions that you may want to explore include: Do you feel challenged and confident in your work? How might you be a more effective leader? How are you making a contribution? Is it time to make a career change, and if so what is next for you?


And the final 'C' is 


Change - Your coach will support and encourage you to make changes that create greater happiness, success and fulfillment in your life and career.
