What is coaching?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and profession lives. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance skills, resources and creativity that the client already has.
How does a coaching/consulting model differ from pure coaching?
A mentor is a wise and trusted guide and advisor. In coaching/consulting partnerships, the consultant serves as a mentor, sharing from their experience in order to help develop the client. With pure coaching, the answer comes from the client. In my practice, I offer a coaching/consulting hybrid in order to best meet the needs of my clients.
Do you work with people in other states?
Yes! Your initial consultation will ensure that this is a viable option for your specific needs. While I prefer to meet with my clients in person, if it is feasible I do offer coaching/consulting via phone, or with the help of Zoom which allows us to see each other face-to-face. For businesses outside of the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids Corridor who fall within the central midwest, travel packages are available as part of your contract depending on your location.
What services/packages do you offer?
For individual personal coaching, I offer one-on-one coaching packages in 3 session increments. For coaching/consulting, I offer customized mentor coaching packages determined by your specific needs ranging from 3-12 months.
Can I just receive individual sessions?
A big piece of coaching is helping hold clients accountable towards their goals, therefore I do not offer individual sessions which eliminates this vital piece.
