Tight deadlines, endless meetings and hundreds of emails – the life of a manager is hectic enough without adding coaching to the mix. But taking that extra effort will benefit the bottom line.
In coaching the focus is typically about visioning, success, the present and moving into the future. Occasionally, it may become apparent that the client is emotionally unhealthy or is having trouble in daily life. This may indicate a need for something beyond coaching, such as therapy, which is clearly beyond the scope of coaching

Starting your own business is daunting, and as an entrepreneur the mindset is that you do it alone. Coaching businesses are usually sole proprietorships and the “sole” idea makes entrepreneurs think “I do it alone”.
As coaches, we hold a space for our clients to explore their ideas and the vision they ideally desire for themselves. We are curious about what is important to them and how their values can support this vision. We ask them to acknowledge their unique set of skills, and how this might help them give life to a truly gratifying future. This is all the more satisfying when you, the coach, have taken the time for your own self-discovery.
