These powerful questions deepen a coachee's self-awareness, encourage them to act on their discoveries and to make choices that differ from the ones they made in the past. The process of self-development continues in a spiraling motion: as the client makes new choices, they get unexpected results, which leads them to learning new things about themselves. As their self-awareness grows, they experiment with new choices and act in even more novel ways. Again, surprising results encourage them to expand their self-perceptions, nudging the process of self-growth in an ever-spiraling motion.
Because each coachee is a unique individual there are no "steps" or "templates" for Co-Active Coaching. My role as your Coach is not to provide answers, but rather to help you develop the self-awareness, curiosity, and understanding of yourself, the variety of your choices, and your ability to find your own answers. As a result, I ensure that you will always have the tools to make choices that suit your self-designed goals and vision of yourself.
"Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active Model, it begins by holding the coachee as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. Co-Active coaching uses an array of proprietary tools developed by CTI'." ("The Co-Active Model." thecoaches.com.)
Co-Active Coaching is a powerful relationship created through an open, courageous conversation between the coachee and the coach. The difference between a Co-Active Coaching conversation and any other open conversation and powerful relationship lies largely in the coach's training. Co-Active Coaches are trained to ask questions. Questions are like arrows: they point to where you're coming from (motivations, yearnings, history, beliefs) to where you're going (your goals, yearnings, expectations).
Beginning in January 2021, I will be offering a variety of packages for clients who prefer to work with me for a set period of time. There will be 3 session packages, 2 different 3 month packages, and a 6 month package.
Single sessions at special rates are available through the end of the year while I am working on my professional coach certification. These sessions may be recorded, with your permission, to share with my supervisor for my training. A signed authorization form is required prior to our first session. Single sessions are 1 hour long.
Individuals are invited to schedule a complimentary 1 hour session. No sales pitch. No pressure. Just a conversation about where you are, and where you would love to be on you life journey, This is your chance to experience coaching in a safe, non-judgmental space, at no cost and see if it's right for you.
If you would like to work together after this session, we can explore your options at that time.
