1.What is coaching?

In sports, coaches instruct, discipline, and inspire athletes to do things better than they thought they could do on their own. Musicians, public speakers, and actors rely on coaches to improve their skills, remain focused, and get to where they want to be. Today coaching has suddenly become relevant to the business community; it has moved beyond sports and entertainment and into the workplace.

At its core, coaching is the art and practice of guiding a person or group from where they are toward the greater competence and fulfillment that they desire. Life coaches help people find focus and direction for their lives and careers. As your coach, I will help you expand your vision, build your confidence, unlock your potential, increase your skills, and take practical steps toward your goals.

2.Why would anyone want coaching?

People come for coaching because they want something different. The issue may be as simple as preparing a business presentation or as complex as reinventing your life. But all coaching is about making changes. People who want coaching know that for their future to be different, they will need to make changes in the way we do things in the present.

3.Is coaching the same as counseling or therapy?

Coaching is not counseling. It is not for those who need therapy. Coaching is for people who are well-adjusted, emotionally healthy, functioning effectively, and wanting to make changes in their lives.

As your coach, I do not make a diagnosis or give advice. Instead, I will listen, understand, guide, encourage, and come alongside as you look at your own situation, reach conclusions about what to do, and then take action.

Coaching is not looking back; it’s looking ahead. It is not about healing; it’s about growing. It focuses less on overcoming weaknesses and more on building skills and strengths. Coaching is concerned with helping people reach their potential.

4.What is involved in coaching?

Coaching can involve brainstorming, clarifying values, the completion of written assignments, education, goal-setting, identifying plans of action, accountability, making requests, agreements to change behavior, examining lifestyles, and questioning. Some or all of the coaching may be through telephone contact.

5.What topics normally come up in coaching?

Coaching is designed to address issues the person being coached would like to consider. These could include (but are not limited to):

 

  • Developing skills like public speaking or leadership
  • Discovering and developing passions
  • Building a clearer vision for the future
  • Learning to relate to people effectively
  • Learning to manage change effectively
  • Finding clear values
  • Building communication skills
  • Getting unstuck, out of ruts, and moving forward
  • Better time management
  • Learn to think and see things differently
  • Expanding the capacity to take action
  • Getting free of destructive self-talk like “I can’t do it,” “Things will never change,” “I’ll never succeed so why try”
  • Building self confidence
  • Finding meaning in what one is doing
  • Getting the courage to take risks
  • Learning to take responsibility
  • Developing a closer walk with God

6.How does the coaching process work?

Working with me as your coach, you will set a goal and chart the course to its achievement using the coaching model as a guideline. Our coaching model has three parts:

Ask. The process begins by assessing where you are now, building our coaching partnership, and identifying your values, passions, and what you would like to accomplish.

Think. Working together, you and I will develop a strategy to help you get where you want to be in the future. Here you will set realistic, specific, and measurable goals that stimulate action.

Imagine. Finally, you start taking action. You may push yourself into unfamiliar territory, attempt things you never thought possible. All the while, I will help you keep the process moving by reviewing progress and giving feedback, encouraging you along the way, helping you anticipate obstacles, gently challenging you, and assuring you that success is possible.

7.Is a time commitment required?

There are no time commitments required. Some people want coaching hourly, as needed; for a specific goal; ongoing and open-ended. How long and how frequently will depend on what you want to accomplish. My goal as your coach is to work myself out of a job so that you are able to make changes and move forward without continued assistance.

8.How much will it cost?

For the same cost of a day of training in a classroom with a lot of other people, you can work one-on-one with me on your specific issues at a time that is convenient for you. Fees normally range from $125 to $300 and are payable monthly, in advance, for a specified number of months, although you can terminate the relationship at any time. Your investment depends on the issue you want to work on and your budget. As your personal coach, I will work with you to develop a coaching schedule that works best for you.

9.How can coaching benefit me?

The benefits of coaching is different for each client. Here are just a few of the benefits clients report from coaching:

 

  • “I have more job and life satisfaction.”
  • “My communication skills have improved and I am more confident when I am called on to speak at work. Last week, I was able to deliver my presentation without any coaching.”
  • “Now I have a clear view of what I want to achieve with my career and a realistic plan to achieve it!”
  • “I feel less stress and more control of my workload.”
  • “I am more motivated than ever to succeed.”
  • “I have a new awareness and appreciation of my own strengths and weaknesses.”
  • “I’m able to better use my time and resources to my greatest advantage.”

Success Stories
"I own a small web-based business and work from home. I am often overwhelmed by the abundance of tasks involved. Many times, I don't know where to begin or I try to do everything all at once. Coaching with Cassandra was truly from the Lord. She was able to help me prioritize my work so that I start with the task that is most profitable for my business and then move on from there. It made a world of difference in my level of stress and accomplishments. I'm even completing more and at a better quality. Thank you Cassandra!"
--Rhonda Jones, Christian Meditation and Relaxation
