Will coaching work for me?

Considering hiring a life or business coach? Your main question will be: ‘Will coaching work for me?’ Whatever you seek a coach for help with; coaching will challenge you. It’ll help you understand what’s stopping you from moving forward and will help you find and implement strategies to get you closer to your goal.

Individuals who achieve the most from coaching fall into one or all of these categories:

Motivated Individuals – Motivated to achieve their goals, even if at this point they don’t know what that goal is, these people are clear-sighted enough to know they need to make a change and are hell bent that this change must and will happen! How, they don’t know and yes, the fear will be there, obstacles to overcome; however, they are motivated enough to trust in the coaching process and let momentum take over.
