The other day, after a free discovery call, a new potential client reflected back to me, “Wow. I’ve never had a first coaching conversation like this. You really got to the heart of what I’m looking for. I feel like you see me and I can grow with you.”
WOW! Firstly, I told her “Welcome! I am so honored to work with you!”
And secondly, I really took her comments to heart. It is not the first time a new potential client has made a comment about my style of coaching being different, powerful, deep… right from the start.
What a wonderful perspective she shared.
Perspective can help us realize where we are, how far we’ve come and, sometimes, how our special gifts are showing up.
It made me take some time to reflect on what is so different about my style of coaching?
At the heart of it, my coaching is a balance between how the person feels — I want them to feel safe and understood — and helping them distill down to what is most important to them (not what the world or their to-do list has told them is important.)
I’ve been told my approach is warm, compassionate, curious and helps people feel safe to be brave or honest or vulnerable or clear or self-assured. Sometimes, all at once.
My strengths of * Communication * Empathy * Context * Strategic * all show up in my coaching…which means I am authentically present with my clients and the challenges or opportunities that show up with them.
At the end of the day, coaching is more of an art than a science. There is no one way to do this.
But I continue to invest in my craft by taking continuing education classes, reflecting, and being present with each and every person I have the privilege to coach. And I’ve been at it for 9 years so the gift of experience shows up there too.
I didn’t know that my style of discovery coaching sessions is so different from others. I coach from my training, from my curiosity, from my intuition, and, most of all, from my heart.
I love providing a safe space of support to help you feel supported and gain clarity on your challenges.
So I have a gift for you:
I am opening up FIVE spots for my free discovery coaching sessions in November.
This is not a sales call. Rather, this is a full 1-hour coaching call given with love by me. This coaching is offered on a first-come-first-served basis. (Please book a slot only if you are confident you can make the time.)
I look forward to connecting with you!
Thank you for being a part of my corner of the world. I understand what a privilege it is to do work you love for people you love and I am inspired everyday by you.
“People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget
how you made them feel.”
