Are You My Client?
I’m not gonna lie … my clients are freakin’ AH-MAZING peeps who each come to me with unique stories and concerns. And while their paths may differ, there are a few common factors that makes our work together so productive, powerful and transformative. They:
- Are ready to make a change in their lives.
- Are coachable, willing to receive honest, objective guidance, direction and feedback.
- Are realistic, understanding that this is a process and nothing will happen overnight.
- Are honest with themselves and with me throughout our partnership.
- Are motivated to take charge of their needs and understand that what they put into this is what they’ll get out of it.
- Are open and committed to the process, change and objective feedback.
- Are proactive and willing to do the necessary work to achieve their goals.
- Are accountable to themselves and for their actions, not making excuses or pointing fingers when things don’t go as planned.
- Understand that coaching is an investment and are willing to invest in themselves.
