Entrepreneurs in Action

     I often hear, if I am the boss, why would I need a coach? In fact, I picked up the July issue of Fortune magazine an in the article ”The Best Advice I ever got” the Chairman and CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt , said the best advice he ever got was to hire a coach. He also had the initial reaction of if I am the boss, why would I need a coach? In his words “How could a coach advise me if I am the best person in the world at this? …A coach is somebody who looks at something with another set of eyes, describes it to you in his words, and discusses how to approach the problem”. So it’s not about the coach being on the same playing field as you, it’s about being able to give you perspective you might not have otherwise. It’s about having someone to bounce off different approaches to problems that might not be evident on the surface.

     Fall is definitely here with cooler temps and leaves quickly falling from trees. Fall is the season of change and it has a lot of my clients thinking about the changes they want to make in their lives. The best way to truly implement positive changes in your career and personal life is by creating goals that are suitable, manageable, and meaningful to who you are and where you want to go. 

     Yes, it sounds like common sense, but the hard part is the time and planning required in achieving a goal. It also helps to have partners who guide and encourage you to stay on course. That’s why I am offering group coaching programs that focus on making and achieving your goals. I have two distinct six week group coaching programs.

     Are you an entrepreneur building a new business? Do you feel excited yet overwhelmed about how to get it all done? Learn how to build your business one goal at a time and turn overwhelm into action that works with your natural working style. If you are an entrepreneur who is building a new business, my Entrepreneur in Action group is an ideal way to create goals, share ideas, and get encouragement from other entrepreneurs. The group is limited to six participants and includes a one hour group coaching call and private online forum. Participants will get one on one coaching during the group coaching call throughout the six week group class.

     Goal orientated coaching is not just for entrepreneurs, it’s for anyone looking to make achievements in their career and personal life. Do you create goals that you know are achievable, but somehow they aren’t coming to fruition. It’s no secret that people succeed when the goals they create fit their personality and lifestyle. So what you need is a system that fits who you are. I offer a group goal setting class that is geared towards individuals who want a system for achieving goals. The group is limited to six participants and includes a one hour group coaching call. Participants will get one on one coaching during the group coaching call throughout the six week group class. Participants will learn individualized ways to meet their goals and will enjoy celebrating success with a group.

      The accountability factor is what makes these goal setting groups so successful. If you are serious about making your goals a reality, these groups are a perfect setting to develop plans and be supported by a positive people.
