  SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER  


Get a Coach
To Win at the Game of Life!
 

Does your life ever feel out of balance?
Are you buried in work, activities, tasks, other people's demands?
Do you feel like you're running harder than ever just to stay in place?
stuck on a treadmill, going nowhere?
Have you lost track of what is really important to you?
What happened to your dreams?
Are you ready to really make a change???
Are you ready to start WINNING at the Game of Life???
 

You're not alone;
a recent survey revealed that over 40% of adults feel so overwhelmed trying to cope with today's demanding workplace that they spend what little non-work time they have just "vegging out!"
Many people feel that there is so much to do that they can't afford to take the time to sit back and look at the bigger picture of where their lives are headed. They concentrate on the day-to-day emergencies and just hope that the long term will somehow work out.
The pressure to "deal with reality" leads increasing numbers of us to lose the enthusiasm and ambition that led us into our careers and relationships in the first place. 


COACHING CAN HELP YOU! 
WHAT IS COACHING? 
Coaching is a special partnership with an experienced professional mentor, committed to your well-being, success and happiness. In the Coaching relationship, we focus on goals that will transform the quality of your work and personal life. To accomplish this, we draw from our extensive background in psychology, business, management development, personal growth, transformation, philosophy and spirituality. We use our knowledge of these disciplines to benefit you, whether you are an entrepreneur, professional or business owner.  

WHAT IS LAURIE'S COACHING PHILOSOPHY? 
I am committed to helping people learn to love and appreciate themselves and each other. I have an unshakeable belief, based on over 38 years of experience as a coach, therapist, and consultant, that people are doing the very best they can with the resources they have available to them at any given moment. As a coach, I listen "between the lines" and respond to what people mean instead of just to what they say. I search for the essential aliveness in my clients and encourage their uniqueness. I help my clients to clarify their intentions, especially in difficult situations, and then help them find the resources they need to achieve their goals. I am not afraid to speak difficult truths, and I help my clients discover what is true for them and learn to communicate it with compassion, grace and skill. My passion for experiential learning has led me on many strange and wonderful paths. I have been blessed by elephants in India, walked on hot coals, visited Camelot, flown over the Pyramids, and viewed the temples at Khajurajo.

WHAT IS JONATHAN'S COACHING PHILOSOPHY? 

I think of coaching as a conversation designed to discover the automatic patterns that run in the background and determine our choices and decisions from moment to moment, similar to a computer's operating system. I think most of us run on "automatic" most of the time, and I see my job as spotting those automatic patterns and showing them to you. Once you see the patterns, you can decide whether they are producing the results they want, and you can learn to create new and better patterns if the current ones don't serve you. I'm a Psychologist by training, but I'm not a "Shrink," I'm a "Stretch!" 

You don't have to be sick to get better.

WHAT DOES A COACH DO? 
Coaches: 
  • Help you set better goals and then reach those goals. 
  • Ask you to do more than you would have done on your own. 
  • Focus you better to more quickly produce results. 
  • Provide the tools, support and structure to help you accomplish more. 

 

Using state-of-the-art methods of personal empowerment, tailored to your individual needs and personal style, your Coach 
Listens: 
  • for what's really important to you; 
  • for what gets in your way; 
Supports you by: 
  • helping design your course of action; 
  • keeping you focussed and on track; 
  • holding you accountable; 
Challenges you to: 
  • use your personal strengths effectively and efficiently; 
  • uncover and move through the barriers that have kept you from reaching important goals; 
  • develop necessary new skills; 
  • maintain a healthy balance between your personal and professional life. 
A coach provides the extra resource to help you move ahead in areas where you want to excel. 

 

WHY COACHING WORKS 
A coach provides what is needed for you to grow beyond your current level of performance. The key elements combine "structure" (guidelines, information, tasks, deadlines) and "nurture" (lots of unconditional acceptance, celebration of accomplishments, continued support in the face of setbacks, etc.). The task of a coach is to design programs to help you achieve your goals, monitor your progress and challenge you to move beyond your perceived limits.  

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HIRE A COACH? 
Many things, but the most important are: 
  • You take yourself more seriously. 
  • You take more effective and focused actions immediately. 
  • You stop putting up with what is dragging you down. 
  • You create momentum so it's easier to get results. 
  • You set better goals. 

DOES THE COACH WORK ON PERSONAL OR BUSINESS/PROFESSIONAL GOALS? 
Both, actually. And, with the line between personal and business life blurring in the 90s, the coach is the only professional trained to work with all aspects of you. 

 

WHAT DO I WORK ON WITH A COACH? 
Setting goals in alignment with personal values. 
Business planning, budgeting and goal-setting. 
Integrating business & personal life for a balance. 
Taking a project to completion. 
Handling business or personal problems. 
Making key decisions and designing strategies. 
Prioritizing actions and projects. 
Catching up and getting ahead of the business. 
Increasing sales substantially or filling a practice. 
Turning around a difficult situation. 
Identifying and accessing resources. 

 

WHY SHOULD I PAY A COACH WHEN I CAN DO IT MYSELF? 
Winners have coaches! 
If you could do everything yourself, you wouldn't need a coach -- or anybody else! The purpose of having a coach is 1) to actually do the things you could do, but usually don't; and 2) to do things you never thought you could! 
You don't need to be embarrassed about the idea of using a coach or mentor to help achieve business or personal goals. The need for individualized personal support to achieve superior performance is well-accepted in the fields of sports and entertainment, but business people are just beginning to recognize the potential value of personal coaches or mentors who are independent of the business. 

 

WHO IS QUALIFIED TO BE YOUR COACH? 
When you choose a coach or mentor for yourself, remember that not everyone is qualified to coach. A coach must be willing and able to expect you to do more than you think you can, and to provide the continuing support and encouragement to help you meet those expectations. There are specific skills that a good coach or mentor should have, skills which are usually more important than a detailed understanding of your business. This kind of coach needs expertise in how people work.  

 

HOW DO I START WITH A COACH? 
E-mail or Call us at (303)794-5379. We'll schedule the first meeting (either in person or by phone) and send you a welcome packet containing checklists and assessment materials that you can use to prepare. The first meeting is focussed on identifying your goals, needs and challenges. During this meeting, we review your achievements and successes, discuss your goals, and begin to design a plan to reach these goals.  

 

HOW IS COACHING ARRANGED? 
After the initial face-to-face meeting, the coaching usually takes place in weekly half-hour phone meetings, although 1-hour in-person meetings are also common. Fees are currently $175/hour for the individual meetings, and $450/month, payable in advance on the first of the month, for the phone meetings. MC/VISA are accepted, but not encouraged. These rates are guaranteed through December, 2015
