What is Coaching?
Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the 'here and now' rather than on the distant past or future.
The ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
You could benefit from a coach if you are
Wanting to grow personally or professionally
Dealing with life changes
Unsure where to start
New career or professional role
Trapped by limiting beliefs
Lacking confidence or feeling unsure
Working with Sandra was fantastic! Each session’s content established a foundation and built well upon the next. In an open-minded and forward-thinking way, Sandra listened and heard from where I was coming, and was able to skillfully hone in on and guide me where I needed her help the most. Summaries were provided after each session with resource links along with Sandra’s own resource pages, plus action steps that prepared me well for next sessions. Through my work with Sandra, I was able to look at my own professional operations and learn about and identify distinct DISC behavioral patterns [D (dominance), I (influence), S (steadiness), and C (conscientiousness)], Assertive Communication, Negotiation Strategies, Shirzad Chamine’s “Iceberg of Conflict,” Thinking Patterns and strategies for improvement, and John Maxwell’s “The 5 Levels of Leadership.” Over the course of 6 weeks, I have learned so much and have gained both insights and strategies that move the needle further along as I become a better leader.
