I know you have questions! I have questions whenever I am about to make an investment in my own personal & professional growth! So, check them out below ranging from coaching, the process, cost & payment!


What is Coaching?


How Do I Know You Are A Good Fit For Me & Ensure A Compatible Partnership

Remember that coaching is a partnership, so be assertive about talking with me about any concerns you may have with the process. Start by summarizing what you would expect to accomplish in a coaching program with me. When you have a fairly clear idea of the desired outcome, a coaching partnership  with me can be a useful tool for developing a strategy for how to achieve that outcome with greater ease.

My coaching clients range from “Millennials” to “Baby Boomers” from different socioeconomic, ethnic, spiritual backgrounds, and live in different countries. The commonality, besides us all being human beings going through trials and tribulations, is that they want to discover & define their purpose and leverage for career, business, and spiritual success!

How Long Does Coaching Take?

The length of our coaching process varies  depending on the individual’s needs and preferences. For certain types of focused coaching, three to six months of working may work. Factors that may impact the length of time include: the types of goals, the ways individuals prefer to work, the frequency of coaching meetings and financial resources available to support coaching.

Do You Work With Clients Outside of The San Francisco Bay Area?

YES! YES! YES! I am honored to have coached people in the U.S, Canada, Australia, and the U.K  via Skype, Google Hangouts, and Uberconference! Anywhere there is an internet connection, mic hookup, and web cam, then I am there to be of service!

What Is Professional Coaching?

Coaching is  partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. As my client,  I honor and respect that you are the expert in your life, work, and spiritual purpose, and I wholeheartedly believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Just sometimes, we all (including coaches) need accountability and a second pair of eyes to help us navigate through this journey we call life!

My responsibility to you as your personal coach and NLP practitioner:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

Check out the What is Coaching page to learn more about it.

How Is Coaching Delivered? What Is The Process?

To learn more about my coaching process please visit here. My coaching typically begins with a personal interview (either face-to-face or by teleconference call) to assess the individual’s current opportunities and challenges, define the scope of the relationship, identify priorities for action and establish specific desired outcomes. Subsequent coaching sessions may be conducted in person or over the telephone, with each session lasting a previously established length of time. Between scheduled coaching sessions, the individual may be asked to complete specific actions that support the achievement of one’s personally prioritized goals. I will most likely provide additional resources in the form of relevant articles, checklists, assessments or models to support the individual’s or business’ thinking and actions. The duration of the coaching relationship varies depending on needs and preferences.

How Is Coaching Distinct From Training, Consulting and Therapy?

Training: Training programs are based on objectives set out by the trainer or instructor. Though objectives are clarified in the coaching process, they are set by the individual or team being coached, with guidance provided by the coach. Training also assumes a linear learning path that coincides with an established curriculum. Coaching is less linear without a set curriculum. To learn more about training/ecourses click here


 

Consulting: Individuals or organizations retain consultants for their expertise. While consulting approaches vary widely, the assumption is the consultant will diagnose problems and prescribe and, sometimes, implement solutions. With coaching, the assumption is that individuals or teams are capable of generating their own solutions, with the coach supplying supportive, discovery-based approaches and frameworks. *Please note: I provide business & marketing consulting through my consultancy agency The Marketing Parlour.

Therapy: Therapy deals with healing pain, dysfunction and conflict within an individual or in relationships. The focus is often on resolving difficulties arising from the past that hamper an individual’s emotional functioning in the present, improving overall psychological functioning, and dealing with the present in more emotionally healthy ways. Coaching, on the other hand, supports personal and professional growth based on self-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is future focused. While positive feelings/emotions may be a natural outcome of coaching, the primary focus is on creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals in one’s work or personal life. The emphases in a coaching relationship are on action, accountability, and follow through.

For more information on the Career Development Coaching program please visit here.

Life Coaching: What Are Your Spiritual Beliefs?

I believe that we are spiritual, energetic beings having a human experience, and that includes the duality and material aspect of life.

I aim to live my life according to the universal golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”.  I am not perfect ( although I do not believe in that word or perfectionism), but I aim to treat others including my clients & partners in that way.

I believe that there are many paths to one destination, and we are born with a Divine Purpose, and we need to use that purpose to navigate through life’s many facets (spiritually, personally, and professionally) and its  ups and downs.

I believe nature is one of the Source Energy’s (God, Allah, Jehovah, Jah, the Divine, etc.) greatest gifts to us to utilize in planning, manifestation, and rejuvenation.

I believe the Universe is one of the greatest co-creating partners that we are blessed with, and that we are all mini-universes from our nervous system, to our brain waves, mindset, attitudes, emotions, will & determination.

I know that love(especially self-love) & compassion will help you navigate during the darkest of times.

I believe that spirituality, connection with Source, with humanity, our earth, our world, and ourselves is our personal responsibility.

I respect and honor all the sacred text on this planet and each religion’s avatars for they all bring some of the most important lessons that we all can and need to draw from.

I also believe that life is genuinely what you make it. You can’t always control what happens to you, but you CAN control how YOU respond.

I believe that prayer, decrees, affirmations is you talking to The Source, and mediation is The Source talking through you.

I believe and have experienced synchronicity and miracles on a regular basis.

I am a big proponent of energy and vibration, and as an intuitive that is what I am tapping into when giving reiki, intuitive readings, asking you questions, listening to you, or using ANY of the modalities during the coaching session.

Business Coaching: Do Your Clients Always Know Exactly What Kind Of Business They Want To Start Before They Come To You?

The two MAIN types of individuals that come to me for small business coaching are:

  • Client type A who is just getting started in a new business, but knows exactly what industry and/or business archetype (model) they want to explore.
  • Client B has several ideas for businesses, but they aren’t sure yet which one (or which business archetype combination) will work best for them, or if there’s something they haven’t thought of yet that might be the best fit.
