What is Coaching?
Coaching is an ongoing dialogue between two people, where the focus is on the client’s personal and professional goals and objectives. There is regular communication between coach and client for an agreed upon number of sessions per month.
In the initial conversations with a new client, I probe and listen to the client and understand his/her goals. If we determine there is a good match between us, I may also suggest one of several assessments, which will support our initial discussions and will help us provide structure to our collaborations. These assessments will help us gain insight into the client’s goals, self-awareness, and even his/her strengths on the job.
I have been coaching for almost two decades and in all that time, I still say to my clients initially: “this is a relationship for which you have no template.”
A coaching relationship is unique, and so are you. There is nobody else like you, and my job is to help you see your uniqueness and to come up with ways to leverage that uniqueness in ways that have you get what you want and make you feel more alive.
Elizabeth has supported me through significant growth in my job role and responsibilities. She’s been particularly helpful in helping me understand how my internal emotional state drives my business decisions and how important self management is to successful organisational management.

My coaching relationships move through four stages:
- Discovery and Assessment
- Clarification of Gaps
- Action Planning
