The Coaching Process
I get asked these questions all the time, “What does Coaching look like? What can I expect to get out of coaching? How does it work?” Those are all great questions. The best way I can explain the coaching process is to emphasize the relationship it’s built on. Coaching is an active partnership; a dynamic relationship between the coach and client where we co-create your vision. It is a journey that will take you through discovery, awareness, and choice. The premise of coaching is the belief that the client is creative, resourceful, and whole. In other words, you have all the answers for your life inside of you – you just need someone to help you discover them. My goal for you is simple; I want you to become the person you long to be.
I didn’t realize it when I was homeschooling my kids but I love teaching. It’s a huge part of what drives me. Workshops are one of my favorite things to do because I’m able to make deeper connections with more people. Many of these people are hurting, confused, doubting themselves, walking around with no self-confidence or wanting more out of life.
My workshops are not only educational but also interactive. This allows the participants to engage and connect with others in attendance. They are inspired to immediately implement their newly acquired skills.
Participants leave armed with tools, resources and an action plan to move forward personally and professionally. Attendees learn:
- New Skills to Face Life’s Disruptions
- A Deeper Understanding of Who They Are
- Useful Tools to Use Immediately
- Insights to Recognize Emotional Triggers
Master Mind Groups
What is a mastermind group? The term master mind was first coined by Think and Grow Rich author Napoleon Hill. Hill had researched hundreds of the most successful people in the world including Andrew Carnegie, one of the most famous and wealthiest industrialists of his day. Carnegie attributed his success to ‘the sum total of the minds’ of his business associates. Carnegie called this combined brain power a ‘master mind’.
Master minds are still relevant today and recognized as one of the most powerful alliances to promote growth, change and innovation. The purpose of the master mind is for the mutual improvement and success of the individuals and the group itself. The power of the master mind can take you further than you could ever go alone.
I love the energy and power of these groups. The master minds I facilitate are composed of a select group of like-minded individuals working together to support and help each member of the group succeed. As a facilitator of the group, I utilize leadership concepts based on the principles of the John Maxwell’s Team Curriculum. I challenge the group’s current level of thinking and encourage them to look much deeper than the surface.

I am passionate about communicating a message to my audiences that inspires, motivates, and challenges them to think and act differently; both personally and professionally. In my presentations I incorporate both the magical ingredient of storytelling as well as powerful interactive breakout sessions. This discovery, participation and involvement process stimulates engagement so that my audiences have a clearer knowledge of what they need to do to promote the change they want.
My goal is that the attendees hear a life enriching message that transforms their thinking. My desire is that they are more effective after they’ve attended the event than had they not attended. It’s important that they have key take-aways and can answer the following questions after the event:
- “What do you now know that you didn’t before?”
- “What can you do now that you couldn’t do before?”
- “How have your feelings and attitudes changed and improved as a result of the training?”
- Finding Your Authentic Self
- Managing Stress and Building Resilience
- Acquiring a Warrior Mindset
- Focusing Your Energy on Your Purpose
“Go back?” He thought. “No good at all.” “Go sideways, impossible. Go forward, only thing to do! On we go!”
