The top 3 reasons why I need and deserve a business coach.

I was chatting with my colleagues and I asked them why their clients came to them for business coaching.

We talked about the clients’ motivation and expectations and we basically stopped short of making this into a contest for them!

The top 3 we came up with were:

  1. Make more money (change career)
  2. I need someone to help me stay on track.
  3. To build a solid team


It’s one of most powerful words in coaching. "Imagine" that!

Each person who I ask to "imagine" something has his or her own world that they enter and has the potential to take them places in their dreams and desires. This invitation to invest your own mental energy to create something from nothing is a very meaningful way to get you thinking outside the box. The power of this word "imagine" comes from the fact that you are doing all the work to translate your mental pictures into words.

Time Management 101

In coaching we talk about “self- management” which is based on the fact that we can only manage ourselves. We all know that time is finite and that there are all kinds of tools, like calenders and appointment books that we use to schedule our days, however, we all have choices on how we live our lives and it’s just a matter of how ready, willing and able we are to make them. Some of the choices can be very challenging and others can be a simple “no thanks”.
