Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is like a map to new horizons. Maps open possibilities: places you don't know, roads you haven't taken, new ways of thinking and being. Sometimes you get stuck in a rut: the same decisions, the same processes, the same outcomes. Open new roads working through your own coaching journey!

What is the difference between a leadership coach, a business coach, and a life coach?

Different types of coaches use the same self-exploration and self-development process with their clients but have a focus on different client needs. I specialize in working with clients who want to grow their leadership qualities, whether that is in business or their personal life.

Is coaching the same thing as consulting or counseling?

Coaching is different from consulting, counseling, and mentoring.

  • Consulting hires someone to solve your problems and do the work for you. Coaching inherently believes you have the capability to solve your own problems and accomplish your goals.

  • Counseling works through issues from the past that may affect you today. Coaching is forward-looking. While some past issues may arise from time to time, that is not the primary focus.

  • Mentoring pairs you with someone who has experience and knowledge in an area of interest, and you glean insights from them. Coaching partners you with someone dedicated to your growth, ready to help you explore and arrive at your own personal insights.

What is a typical coaching session like?

Sessions are scheduled in advance with the client and the coach, either in person, via video chat, or by phone. A session lasts 45 minutes. As the client, you would have an overarching goal or aspiration you are working on, and each session breaks down the larger goal into smaller steps. As coach, I help define the goals and understand what constitutes success. I ask a lot of questions to aid in your self-discovery and listen intently to your answers. My questions may help clarify your thoughts, add new perspective, or dig deeper into root causes or solutions. It is a discovery journey! You leave each session with concrete takeaways and actions toward achieving your goal.
