Frequently Asked Questions
How can coaching help you?
Coaching is a partnership. I will partner with you to increase your awareness, create focus, discover ways for you to make the most of the opportunities available to you, and take action! I will be your champion, sounding board, and co-designer. I offer acceptance, support, and accountability, while also reflecting the truth others might be reluctant to provide.
What can you expect from me?
- A confidential relationship
- An objective perspective
Who hires me?
Professionals in higher education who want help in reaching their goals. Coaching works best when you are motivated to change and see a gap between where you want to be and where you find yourself now.
How does coaching differ from other professional services?
I am not a therapist, consultant, tutor, teacher, or even mentor. Although, I do employ some tools used in these professions. Coaching is future-focused and action-oriented. Coaching begins with the fundamental principle that you are whole, capable, and resourceful. You are NOT broken, and you are NOT in need of fixing. The goal and process of coaching are toward developing your full potential and uncovering obstacles that prevent you from reaching that potential. Be aware that sometimes the great obstacles are the ones we create ourselves. Because we each learn differently as well as have different abilities and experiences, coaching explores and works with those differences to discover your unique path to YOUR desired reality whether that be personal, professional, or both.
Can't I just make desired changes myself?
Of course, and quite likely you have already created significant accomplishments alone and/or with other structured support. But some change is harder, and you can become discouraged after unsuccessful attempts. I offer an objective perspective and can help you see habitual patterns and habits of mind that pose obstacles. Plus, you experience the benefit of encouragement, support, and accountability along the way.
