About Coaching

According to research done by the International Coach Federation: 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence; over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships; and more effective communication skills and 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more. 

Below are answers to some common questions I am asked. If you have any other questions, contact me for more information. 

What is coaching?

Coaching usually has a descriptor such as 'leadership', 'executive', 'life' or 'career'. This can tell you who it’s for but not what it is. A coach works to improve your cognitive fitness just as a sports coach works on physical fitness. This allows you to know yourself better - what's working well and what could be improved, so you have a better sense of where you are going in your life and make better decisions. As a coach, I can give you a process for self-improvement and help hold you accountable for what you want to do.

Coaching will help you speed up and take control of the changes you want to make in your life. It can help you navigate a wide range of challenges, including:

  • How to get a better balance in life

  • What you value and discovering your purpose

  • If you feel stuck in a situation/ mindset and can’t see a way through
