Ways Coaching Can Help
Together, we will:
Complete an assessment: We will get detailed information on your strengths and challenges and make an action plan.
Examine goals: We will maintain a balance between the big picture and the day-to-day action steps and details that need to be taken care of along the way.
Look at limiting beliefs: Mindfulness and focusing enable you to take a step back from negative self-talk and stay true to your values and desires.
Work with your values: How do you want to show up in the world? Through using Mindfulness and other skills, we keep you from fusing with unhelpful emotional responses to setbacks and obstacles, so you can bounce back from obstacles and stay on course.
Create awareness and develop skills: What strengths or qualities do you want to cultivate to move you in the right direction? We’ll keep your attention focused, create schedules, routines, and check-ins to keep you accountable.
Develop self sufficiency: Develop kindness and compassion for yourself. Find you own center of strength. The coaching relationship will support you as you strive to maintain a balance among all areas of life: academic, professional, financial, physical, social—whatever is important to you.
