WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a resource designed to help clients improve their performance and enhance their quality of life by learning more about themselves, how they make decisions and interact with all of their customers and stakeholders. Coaching is applicable to clients in all aspects of their personal lives: Business, Finance, Career, Health, Spiritual and Relationships. It is also applicable to business organizations of all sizes from the Mom and Pop store on the corner to the largest of multi-national firms. Non-profits and government entities can also recognize benefits from professional coaching.
Coaching has become both a profession and an art form. It enables people to bring out their inner greatness, while always honoring the integrity of their spirit. It has become a profession because the techniques utilized are a teachable skill that expands the natural human capacity for learning and communication.
Coaching is now an industry that helps bring balance to the lives of everyday humans and helps them achieve their lifelong goals and the greatness that exists inside all of us. Professional organizations have developed to assure clients that their coach has been trained and certified, that the coach is both morally and ethically responsible and can be trusted to provide the best service possible.
WHAT DO COACHES DO?
What Does a Coach Do?
Professional Coaches are trained to listen, observe and ask powerful questions as a means to focus clients on solutions to their needs. The purpose of this focus is to gain clarity on solutions and strategies that the client can use to gain value. A Professional Coach believes in and honors the client’s natural ability to be creative and resourceful and offers support that enhances these qualities.
In addition, the coach provides feedback to the client – the feedback necessary to allow the client full responsibility for producing the constructive steps to reach the desired goals.
What Does a Coach NOT Do?
A coach is not a Psychiatrist or Psychological Therapist. A Coach does not treat cognitive or emotional disorders, nor does a coach directly focus on relieving psychological pain. While there can be emotional and psychological benefits with the coaching process, a coach does not perform psychotherapy or other medical therapies.
There may be benefits to utilizing Coaching along with skilled therapeutic work, however this can only be done with the full knowledge and written consent of the medical professional.

This was a major source of stress for me and I am so grateful to have opened up to Don and received such compassionate and timely coaching in response. I’ve discovered a fresh enthusiasm in myself and no longer feel I lack a comfortable vocabulary to discuss money matters. Thank you Don!Irene Fulton
HOW DOES COACHING WORK?
The focus of Coaching is the personal and professional development of the client. As such, Coaching has the flexibility to address a wide variety of topics within these areas. The Coaching agenda is set by the Client and the process will be customized to meet the Client’s needs. Given the flexibility inherent in this approach, most of the coaching can be done via telephone or an internet modality, such as Skype. The Client doesn’t have to travel to the Coach’s office or to some other meeting place that requires the additional time burden of commuting. The client can be sitting in their car, their office or their home and still receive the full benefit of each coaching session.
