What is the difference between Life Coaching and Business Coaching?

  • Not a big difference, in general.

  • We believe that the person who is running the business is the same person in his/her life.

  • Structurally, in the Business Coaching you will get everything that is in the Personal Coaching, plus more.

  • There are 12 additional topics in the Business Coaching that are not included in the Personal Coaching.

  • In the Personal Coaching program we will not involve a management strategy, marketing plan or any other structure of your business.

How will Coaching make a difference in my business or my organization?

 

What is the difference between Professional Coaching, Therapy/Counseling and Mentoring?

  • Therapy deals with in-depth issues and their origins in order to heal from the past. Coaching is more forward thinking in its approach and dealing with how to create a future.

  • The Coaching focus is to work with healthy people who are motivated to grow and change. Consulting offers specific advice and answers to particular problems; however, coaching asks thought-provoking questions. These questions challenge clients to see their problems with greater insight and gain the ability to develop their own solutions to change their own lives. 

  • Mentoring is more of a process to impart skills, share information and give a new perspective to the mentored. Coaching has less to do with being an authority in any particular skill, job, or life situation but has more to do with knowing how to expertly utilize the basic principles on how people excel in life.

  • Therapy and Counseling deal with healing pain. The focus of coaching is to look at where you are today and where you want to go, and support you in achieving those goals.

  • Therapy is about looking back and healing prior pain. While Coaching can profoundly heal, the focus is really on present circumstances and what’s possible, to fulfill the life vision that has been created by the client with the support and assistance of their coach.

  • Coaching also holds the client as naturally creative, resourceful and whole. There is nothing wrong with the client and nothing to fix, just removing obstacles they experience.

Where does Life Coaching take place?

  • For Personal Coaching and Business Coaching One-On-One the preferred method is Skype or phone, because the phone/Skype sessions can be easily adapted into busy lives.

  • For our Team & Organization Training we will travel to our client’s city and deliver the program in person.

  • Face-to-face sessions in our office are available for some local clients who prefer this method.

  • We use e-mail as a means of communication between sessions for quick updates and/or to answer any questions that may arise.

  • Having a coach who is not in the same community or even the same part of the country is an advantage. It will place your coach well outside the culture or environment that you live and work, providing you a sense of distance, objectivity and perspective.

 

Do you work with people outside of the United States?

  • As long as we can speak the same language, we are at their service.

  • Our commitment is to serve our clients and anyone who wants to have a breakthrough in their life. We will make ourselves available and make the time zone differences work for both the client and the coach.

 

How are the Life Coaching and Business Coaching programs structured? How do they work?

  • Our coaching programs, personally or professionally, consist of four parts and each part is designed to prepare you for the next level.

  • Each level will bring you to a whole new way of thinking, how you participate in your life and how you operate. 

  • In each of our coaching sessions together we will determine where you are, discover what you really want and where you want to go.

  • Then we will identify areas that you feel stuck and create strategies on how to overcome them.

  • We engage in a rigorous conversation for empowering you in fulfilling your commitments, bringing forth your effectiveness in communicating with others in your home or your business, with your family or with your associates, customers or team members.

  • You also become related to the reality of your situation and resolve your personal or your professional issues. 

  • We follow each of these conversations with a series of electronic communications and “fine tuning” coaching between sessions. 

  • The four segments are as follows:

    • Basic (Relating to the reality of your world) - 12 hours – 3 to 3-1/2 month program - 1 call a week.

    • Advanced (Inventing your vision & planning it) - 12 hours– 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 month program-1 call a week

    • Mastery II (Maintaining your mastery & power) - 12 hours – 12 month program - 1 call a month

 

Do you work with couples?
