“What is coaching?”
“What are your specialties?”
“What separates you from other coaches?”
“How does coaching differ from things like mentorship, consulting, or therapy?”
Coaching is not therapy, consulting, or mentorship. According to
In a consulting relationship, one person is the subject matter expert and is hired to understand your goal, assess the variables, and create a plan of action to better achieve the goals in the area of expertise, which the other person implements the plan on his or her own.
In a mentoring relationship, one person is more experienced and
In a coaching relationship, we focus on taking you from a functional foundation to achieving optimal levels of performance and unlocking your potential with healing as a side effect. Additionally, we believe that you are the subject matter expert (on yourself) and provide consulting or mentorship only when appropriate. Thus, coaching is a dynamic relationship that requires active commitment, transparency, communication, and collaboration
That being said, there are overlapping skills that could be used in all the above and provide similar benefits. There are times where I may consult and mentor, as well as
“Why is coaching done by phone or video?”
Coaching is done by phone or video for various reasons. First, it allows for more convenience, efficiency, and confidentiality. It eliminates commute time and allows you to experience each call in a private space of your own with more control over your environment. Additionally, it opens up the possibility of finding the best coach/coachee match since neither the coach nor coachee is limited by location. I have worked with coachees from 17 countries and counting!
“What results do you guarantee?”
The results of coaching vary from person to person. At the beginning of our engagement, we will discuss your desired outcomes (measurable and immeasurable), set our goals for working together, and check in often during our engagement. My coaching programs first work to increase your self-awareness, knowledge, clarity, openness, tools, resources, strategies, network, resilience, and confidence in pursuing a personal or professional goal. Then, this sometimes leads to external results such as job offers, promotion, higher salary, business growth, more free time, new business ideas, or improved relationships. Typically, coaching together results in a combination of internal growth and external results. Ultimately, personal and professional growth is a lifetime practice and my hope is that you walk away knowing yourself more, what you want with more clarity, and more tools to achieve your goals now and in the future.

“How long do we work together?”
My recommended timeline of working together is 3-6 months. The nature of a career transition is often uncertain and I help provide support as things come up and evolve. In my personal and professional experience, a full career change can take anywhere
