FAQs

Do I need a professional coach?
Everyone goes through professional challenges in their careers. While you may have been able to deal with the challenges you’ve encountered, it’s always a good idea to seek extra support when you need it. A professional coach recognizes and can help you acknowledge and appreciate your strengths and potential. Clients come to coaching to experience personal growth, discovery and transformation. One of the most important things the coach will do is ensure a safe space and supportive relationship in which this can happen.

How can a professional coach help me?

A professsional coach can be utilized to Optimize your Work Performance, Increase your Productivity, Expand Career Opportunities, Improve Communication Skills, Manage Work Life Balance and to Improve Business Management. Through professional coaching, you will recognize your own potential and become aware of behaviors, thoughts, and beliefs that are limiting you from being "your best".


What happens during a professional coaching session?
Each professional coaching session may be different depending on the goals and needs of the client. However, each session, includes the "Four Pillars" of Professional Coaching, Transformational Listening, Asking Powerful Questions, Designing an Action Plan and Accountability. The professional coaching session focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes and managing personal change, through creating
 an environment that allows ideas, options and opportunities to emerge.

Professional Coaching vs. Mentoring, Advising or Counseling
Coaching is different than Mentoring, Advising, or Counseling (MAC) in that the focus is on You.  With Coaching, you are the most important person in the relationship. Coaching is short-term (can be "time-bounded") and is focsed on specific development areas/issues in which you want to talk about. The agenda is focused on achieving specific, immediate goals. Sessions are more structured in nature and are scheduled on a regular basis. With MAC, the Mentor, Advisor or Counselor is the expert. He/She has all the answers and is usually more experienced and qualified than the person being mentored, advised or counseled. The focus is on career and personal development. The agenda is set by the mentee, or advisee but lack accountability.

Will our conversations remain confidential?
Yes. While the law does not grant the privilege of confidentiality to professional coaches, what we discuss will not be shared with others. The session is a confidential process and must remain so in order for it to be successful.
