What is Coaching?

Posted by rise2it on November 22, 2011

Coaching is quickly becoming one of the leading tools that successful people use to live extraordinary lives.  Through weekly coaching sessions, my clients identify what is most important to them and align their thoughts, words, and actions, accordingly.  As your coach, I work with you to identity what you want personally and professionally, and support you in achieving a life that you really want and love.  Having a life you love starts with gaining clarity on your values, enabling more meaningful choices and consistent action.  Your commitment to your life through coaching offers a means for more balance, joy, intimacy, energy, financial abundance, focus, and action in every area of your life.

As Your Coach I Will:

  • Encourage you to set goals that you truly want
  • Ask you to do more than you may have done on your own
  • Help you focus better in order to produce results more quickly
  • provide you with the tools, support, and structure to accomplish more

How Is Coaching Different From Therapy or Consulting?

Coaching is not therapy, which goes into depth about various issues, usually dealing with the past, nor is it consulting which generally results in giving the client answers.  Coaching is more action-oriented and focuses primarily on the present and future.  As your coach I enable you to determine your own “answers” through the work done in our coaching partnership.

Who Works With A Coach?

Entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals, and people in transition are some of the people who typically work with a coach.  Regardless of their professional endeavor or place in life, all of my clients have one thing in common:  they are all successful, resourceful, and intelligent individuals who want to get even more out of their lives.

What professional athlete hasn’t used a coach to win?  Tiger Woods is already one of the best, and yet he understands the value that comes from having someone work directly with him, someone to point out things he can’t see, someone to keep encouraging and challenging him to achieve his greatest potential.  That’s who I am for you.  Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your life!

Benefits of Working With a Coach

Posted by rise2it on November 22, 2011

Coaching is proven to work when two factors are present:

  • The client is willing to learn, grow, and take action
  • There is a gap between where he/she is now and where he/she wants to be

That’s all that is necessary for a successful coaching relationship where you can develop the right strategy, implement a plan of action, and achieve your goals.  Anything is possible with our coaching relationship.  With a coach you can:

Take More, Better, and Smarter Actions

Our first task together is to find out exactly what you really want for yourself.  Once you create objectives that are clearly in line with your personal vision, you are much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach them.

Have a BALANCED Life, Which Works Well

Professional success is maximized when you enjoy a sense of personal fulfillment and life balance.  We will discuss how to carve out enough time so your life outside of work is exactly the way you want it to be.

Make Better Decisions

I will help you become focused as you share ideas with me.  I will understand you and be subjective enough to want a lot for you, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving.  You’ll also find that just talking about your options with someone who really listens is often enough to clarify things.

Reach For More – Much More

When you have a partner you trust, you will reach for much more because you can afford to.  Are you ready to thing big and really live your life fully?  I am a partner who will enable you to take your life wherever you want it to go.

Make and Keep More Money

Most people are worth a lot more than they are making.  Are you happy with your financial situation?  If not, we can look at your beliefs about money and address whatever is keeping you from experiencing financial abundance.

Have More Sustainable Energy

Together we will identify the things that drain your energy, and create a long-term strategy to eliminate them.  In addition, we will focus on the things that give you energy, and explore how to maximize their impact.  When you’re happy, productive, and free from toleration and problems, life is a lot more fun!

MANAGE YOUR TIME – Start With the Simple Things!

Posted by rise2it on November 22, 2011

Start by MASTERING the simple things in your life such as:

  • keep all receipts (so you know where your money goes)
  • put shoes away as soon as you get home
  • hang up your coat when you get home
  • set up areas for your belongings, money, keys, etc.
  • be on time for everything (5-10 minutes early is even better)

It is important to get organized – find out what works for you…

  • use a schedule template as a guide (I like Google Calendar because you can colour code it  www.google.com/calendar)
  • make your bed if you don’t already
  • put things away once you are finished with them
  • hang your keys up (this helps you not to lose them)
  • put shoes away so you are not tripping over them
  • hang clothes up

If things are neat and tidy you won’t feel like there is a pile of things to do.

Change “I have to” to “I choose to”

Successful people…

  • focus on WORK, LEARN, PLAY
  • do what’s hard and don’t complain


  • alarm goes off – GET UP
  • have a to do list and follow it (no more that 6 items at a time)
  • have someone give you a friendly reminder (use email, a friend, or family member)
  • be your own drill sgt. or get a trainer/coach (eg. 2 hrs sales calls M W F am – if you don’t do it you lose…eg. a large sum of money to the political party you don’t support)
  • have company come over so house gets cleaned (this really does work)

Clean Up / Completion / Deletion

  • file, don’t pile (when mail comes in or paper crosses your desk sort it right away)
  • dump anything that you don’t need, want or will do
  • do (get the small jobs done first then you feel like you have accomplished something unless you have a deadline)
  • delegate anything that doesn’t pay you what you are worth per hour

Reward Yourself

  • if lose weight, your reward could be $5 for every pound to go towards new clothes
  • workout 30 mins./day 3x/wk, start with 1 one day and add on (just get moving, that’s a reward in itself)

Please share your ideas to get started with the Simple Things!
