This FREE WEBINAR explores what coaching is and how to determine when you need a coach to bring clarity and focus, get yourself unstuck and take steps to move your life in a desired direction. It is an opportunity to ask questions and get some real answers.

You've been hearing about life coaching, work-life balance coaching and professional coaching, but don't really know what it is, let alone how you can benefit from having one.

Now is your chance to ask some questions and get some answers!

Coaching is a process of focused inquiry that produces clarity, awareness and empowers you as the client to take actions that produce transformative results. Anyone who is looking to significantly change their lives, their businesses or make a difference in the world needs a professional coach.

Coaching is a process that greatly accelerates transformation by deeply exploring what is truly important, opening client awareness to new possibilities, and empowering them to take actions that were not previously available to them. It is very powerful!

Some examples of when people seek a coach include those looking to:

  • make a major change, but are uncertain what that change is

  • create a future that at the present time seems impossible

  • successfully transition into a new job, retirement, or other life role

  • reach their highest potential and make a difference in the world

A typical coaching session is usually an hour and begins with the client defining exactly what they want to accomplish during the coaching session. This is something that is important to the client, is measurable and would yield a breakthrough, whether at work or in their personal life. The coach guides the mechanics of the coaching session, but the client determines what to explore and how they want to be in relation to their situation. The coach asks thought-provoking questions that require the client to dig deep within to find out what is meaningful to them and what they envision for the future of their project or their lives.

Out of this deeper inquiry, new awareness is gained, which opens up new possibilities for action that were not available before. The client chooses and designs action to take. The coach supports this process by further empowering the client to identify and prevail over potential obstacles. It is ultimately taking clearly focused action that produces the amazing results in coaching.

Simply stated:

  • The higher the risk and greater the reward…

  • The more personally important and the stronger the impact…

  • The more revolutionary or innovative the idea is…

  • The more dramatic your envisioned reinvention …

  • The more challenging the situation…

  • The more seemingly impossible the mission…

  • The more that is at stake…


Webinar is 7-8 PM Eastern Daylight Time
