What benefits will you gain from the coaching process?
1. Refined Skills
Superstars like Tom Brady and LeBron James work with a coach in order to refine their skills, focus their mental energy and take their performance to the highest level.
Similarly men and women in all walks of life and work can obtain the benefits of working with a highly qualified and experienced coach who can assist them in:
Reenergizing their motivation and strengthening their determination
Reframing their situation in order to create a more empowering outlook
Reimagining the possibilities that life offers opening up opportunities that were previously overlooked
Reinventing their personal identity unleashing greater power for achievement and satisfaction
Refocusing on a powerful personal vision that will guide all their thoughts, decisions and actions.
2. Trusted Advisor
Many times a person is dealing with issues they do not feel comfortable discussing with colleagues at work or even family at home. An effective coach operating with strict confidentiality can serve as a sounding board and trusted advisor in bringing those issues to a favorable resolution.
3. Self Confidence
Those of us who were fortunate were raised in an environment where we were loved, respected and appreciated. Some of us were not as fortunate and were raised in environments where we did not feel loved, respected and appreciated. As a result self doubt and limiting beliefs were created. These are a tremendous impediment to progress in life. If you don’t believe you deserve a better life it is certain that you will not attempt to achieve it. A skilled coach can assist in the removal of these obstacles and their replacement with self confidence and empowering beliefs. A positive shift in your beliefs, thoughts and behaviors will create a better life.
4. Help Dealing with Issues
Abraham Maslow clearly identified critical life issues which must be dealt with:
“You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety.”
“Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (fear/defense) and risk (progress/growth).”
“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.”
It is easy to slide into and stay in your comfort zone. Your comfort zone is a place of safety that you are very familiar with. You don’t have to think too much; just repeat the same thoughts and behaviors over and over. When asked how you are doing you might reply, “I’m OK.” But is that really your target-to be just OK? In order to progress in life you need to move out of your comfort zone. This movement will generate a range of emotions from discomfort to fear.
A proficient coach can guide you on the path to strengthening your courage and pushing past your discomfort and fears to live full out-being the best that you can be and thereby securing your deepest desires in life and work.
Why should you choose me as your personal coach?
First, some background information:
I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a wide range of organizations. I have served as an officer in the United States Navy,
as an executive in a division of Corning and as a Commissioner in New York City government. More recently I have directed the operations of a management training and consulting firm from startup to present day. As a result I have gained an understanding of a broad range of working environments and their impact on personal behavior and work/life satisfaction.
I have also been fortunate to have worked in over 40 countries in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. I have worked with men and women from all races, belief systems and walks of life. This has given me a deep appreciation of different cultures and an understanding of how we create the software of our minds.
For many years I have studied the field of personal development including the works of people such as Abraham Maslow, Aaron T. Beck, David Burns, Martin Seligman, Bessel van der Kolk, Francine Shapiro, James Allen, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Brendon Burchard, Mike Cernovich, Paul McKenna, Richard Bandler, John Grinder, Connirea Andreas and others too numerous to mention.
Second, and more important:
My personal passion is making a positive impact on the lives of people I have the privilege of coaching. I derive personal gratification from seeing them progress to higher levels of achievement and personal satisfaction. Should we decide to work together it will not be an “assignment” for me but rather a journey together to a more confident, powerful, effective, self-actualized and successful version of you.
