Coaching

Life coaching is a luxurious gift to yourself. It is basically an investment in your belief system, an affirmation that there is something that needs reconfiguring or refreshing or re-examining in your life. Imagine how it feels to create goals with an interested, objective outsider, and then to design actions every week to make those goals a reality.

My clients come to me with ideas and then we partner to bring those to fruition. Week by week, action by action, baby step by baby step, progress is made. Whether through gentle exploration or bold self-discovery or a combination of both, the book gets written, the dream job is landed, the broken spirit is nurtured back to health.

If there’s one thing all of my clients have in common, it’s that they’re people who have a fire in their belly and want to live their lives with passion and purpose. They are willing to ask themselves probing questions in order to make sweeping, courageous changes where necessary for growth.

Perhaps if you have come this far, you are wondering if life coaching is for you or how to go about getting started. Here’s my four-step process:

STEP 1:

Ask yourself these questions honestly and thoughtfully:

* Do you know what’s compelling in your own story when applying for jobs?
* Have you set goals for yourself recently?
* Do you generally see things through?
* Do you keep your New Year’s resolutions? Do you even make them?
* Are you wondering whether your career path is the correct one for you at this point in your life?
* Have you given up on writing, painting, photography, music or some other creative outlet?
* If you’re an artist, have you had a show, a concert, or been published?
* Do you often wish your life had more balance?
* Are you living as healthy a life as you can?
* Are you tired of seeing others realize their dreams? Or seeing them realize your dreams?

If you find any of the answers unsettling, keep reading.

STEP 2:

Contact me for a complimentary one-hour telephone consultation. It’s a win-win scenario. You will get a taste of what coaching can do for you. We can determine if we have the right “chemistry” to work together effectively. You will come away with concrete, inspiring goals and a sense of clarity and vision. I will quote you a fee for moving forward at the conclusion of this session..

STEP 3:

Decide whether you would like to move forward with me in a coaching relationship. You will be kept in action, be encouraged to stay focused on your goals and have built-in accountability. I will tailor a program to meet your specific needs (i.e. number of sessions per month, number of goals created). Sessions are one hour and you will be billed monthly, in advance, unless other arrangements are made.

STEP 4:

Begin your affirming, life-altering experience knowing there is nothing else quite like it.

What others have said after our coaching work:

Working with Nancy was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. She was a pleasure to meet with, and full of support and good ideas. She would help me take the germ of a thought and flesh it out to make it a reality. My “homework” was always thought-provoking and highly enlightening. Within weeks of finishing our work together I had accomplished all of my goals, including two not so small ones — a great career move and buying my first home! The 12 weeks I worked with Nancy were a true pleasure and I would recommend her to anyone I know who is looking to make positive change in their life. –Mary Beth Thomas, VP Deputy Director of Sales, HarperCollins

Life coach sessions with Nancy truly opened my eyes to a new view of the world. They made me realize that reaching goals is way more attainable than you may think. Writing down baby steps and actions toward the goals each week gave me focus and direction. I can honestly say I’ve fully reached the career goals we set for the 12 week period. –Freida Orange, VP at Rubenstein
