Questions for Joan...

 

 

Have some questions?

How is coaching different from consulting or business advising?

The traditional consulting or business advising roles are designed to tell the client what to do based on a set of facts and desired goals.  Coaching is defined by the International Coach Federation as:

“Professional Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to the individual client’s needs and relates to the client as the expert in his/her life and work.

The coach’s responsibility is to:

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

A coach seeks to elicit solutions and strategies from the client and believes that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole.”

Why do successful people hire a Personal Development Coach?

Successful people recognize they need to bring people into their lives who have the skills they don’t yet have but want to develop. They value coaches, mentors and advisors who can help them get from where they are to where they want to go.  They know they need a trained professional to help them determine the best direction, hold them accountable and to provide objective support and feedback.  They also recognize that a coach can help them achieve their goals more quickly than doing it on their own.

Do you offer payment plans?

Payment plans are available upon request. We recognize that finances are an important consideration and we want to proactively work with you to find an option. You can discuss the options with Joan during the initial Discovery Call.

How long is each coaching call?

The initial coaching call is 2 hours during which time we comprehensively review a life assessment that you will complete in advance of the call.  Each subsequent coaching call will be 60 minutes.

What is a Personal Development Coach?

The role of the personal development coach is to expertly guide clients to get clear on their goals, dreams, priorities and vision.  A personal development coach helps people achieve defined goals, overcome obstacles, create an empowered mindset, overcome limiting beliefs, become self-aware and learn how to take radical responsibility for their lives. 

Personal development coaches thrive on helping clients unleash their potential and teach them tools to go after what they want in life and achieve it.

Can’t I reach my dreams, goals and vision on my own? Why do I need a coach?

The reality is that you cannot create a new desired outcome by doing the same things you’ve always done – you have to learn to do things that you’ve never done to get results you’ve never (yet) obtained. If your current life does not support your desired vision of your life, or you haven’t yet figured out your vision, then change, and the willingness to get uncomfortable as you navigate it, are necessary components leading to success.  This kind of change generally requires seasoned guidance to help you navigate the fear and discomfort of letting go of what is to embrace all that can be.  A coach can remove the mystery and help you achieve your desired outcome.

Where does the coaching take place?

Coaching is provided over the phone or Zoom, which allows you to conveniently schedule and meet from the comfort of your home or office.  I strongly recommend you take each call in a distraction free location where you can soulfully and solely focus on our conversation and get the most out of our time together.
