A coaching session is for you – to help you become more than you are, to learn your roles and goals, to define your mission and to come out of it better centered and more passionate about your life. It is your life! A Coach’s job is to listen, help you to define how you will accomplish your goal and point out areas that may be holding you back. The Coach also serves to hold you accountable which are important; especially with us Women who tend to nurture others at the expense of our own wellbeing.

There are 7 habits defined by Steven Covey as being important in our lives:

·         Habit 1 – Be Proactive. Think “I am the force”.

·         Habit 2 – Begin with the end in mind. Thing “Control your destiny or someone else will”

·         Habit 3 – Put First things first. “Think Will and Won’t Power”

·         Habit 4 – Think Win-Win. “Think Lie is an all you can eat buffet”

·         Habit 5 – Seek first to understand, then to be understood. “You have two ears and one mouth … hello”

·         Habit 6 – Synergize – “ The High Way”

·         Habit 7 – Sharpen the Saw – “It’s me time” (my favorite) “think of putting yourself first in exercise, health, fun and relaxation”

Life Coaching

With the help of a life coach, you will learn how to take inventory of your life, then how to make some difficult choices.

If you’ve ever sat down and drafted New Year’s resolutions, you’ve probably listed everything you want to improve in your life. Life improvement is not about accomplishing all of your New Years resolutions, nor is it about reading more books, making more money, building a better body, or traveling to more places. So, what is life improvement, then?

First with the help of a life coach, you will learn how to take inventory of your life, then how to make some difficult choices. Many business leaders will tell you that it is nearly impossible to make more money if you have no idea how much you’re already making. The same is true for life improvement, if you do not know what areas of your life you want to improve, then how will you know what to improve. The problem however is with most individuals they are not objective enough to make proper assessment about them.

This is where a life improvement coach can help. They have the distance needed to analyze your individual situation objectively. Your life improvement coach may examine your marriage, personal relationships, job, and home, then make recommendations on the areas where he or she notices needs improvement. For instance if you have a tendency to become angry, aggressive, excitable, or analytical, then a persona ife coach can make suggestions to correct this behavior based on the observations they’ve noted.

Self-improvement is not black and white nor is it one size fits all. A plan, which has proven effective for one individual may not be the correct action for another individual. In order to devise a strategy, which is correct for you, first sit down with your life coach and take inventory. Your life coach can then help you improve the areas, which need improving and exploit the many excellent tools and resources you already have.
