COACHING CAN HELP
- WHAT IS
- 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
- WHAT IS LAURIE'S
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.
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

- WHY COACHING
- 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
- You stop
putting up with what is dragging you
- You create
momentum so it's easier to get

- WHY SHOULD I

- Winners have
- 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
- 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
