With A Coach On Your Side - You Are Never Alone

When I first started coaching there were many skeptics who questioned my decision to become what I caled myself back then – a “life coach.” There was so much stigma in pop culture about what life coaches do. And much of that still exists today.

Some people wanted a therapist. Others just wanted someone to talk to and “Fix Their Life.” I have to remind potential clients at times – “That is not what coaches do!!”

A friend came for a visit to Atlanta soon after my entry into the coaching field. We had a great time catching up and had dinner on my balcony. She asked me, point blank – why I choice coaching of all the things I could go back to school and study and why I believed in it. Here’s what I shared with her:

“Coaching is an important aspect in the industry of change and mental health. It’s a positive movement to get people to actualize their lives in a way they haven’t in the past.

Coaches can bring change to peoples lives whether it’s around reaching goals or living higher. Life coaching assures you in ways that everyday living cannot.

It makes you solid, it makes you walk with a level of confidence and security on any given day.

I believe in coaching. It’s a skill and it can be a key component to moving people to higher ground.

The biggest asset coaches bring to their clients’ lives is a support system. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We live in a world where on any given day we’re eating alone, we’re in a coffee shop by ourselves or we’re having lunch by ourselves. Alot of people are spending a tremendous amount of time by themselves in their cubicles or drive home.

We’re here to speak life in a way that we haven’t before. I want to start a conversation and a movement for positive change in our personal worlds and the worlds we live it!!

Leveling Up - Take your performance to the next level

Leveling Up, my latest coaching course is available now.  

Accurate, attentive, dynamic, personal, and wise. I began working with David as I began a Senior Leadership role in Silicon Valley. Having gone down the “coaching road” with previous firms, I was less than optimistic to say the least.

From our first meeting, David was able to dissect my personality, leadership style and vision to create “model for transformational leadership”.
David has a unique gift in his ability to hack through personalities, seek varying levels of comfort, and address core issues to cultivate leaders. It goes without saying, I highly recommend him for all career levels.
