WHY IS COACHING A GOOD IDEA?

Scientific studies show that coaching is a great investment. It increases life satisfaction and professional success and improves relationships.

The Journal of Positive Psychology found that coaching has positive effects on the outcomes of performance/skills, well-being, coping, work attitudes and goal-directed self-regulation.

Also, ongoing coaching is more effective than a one-time intervention. A study showed that while group training with managers increased their productivity by 22%, including a one-on-one, eight-week coaching session for the managers pushed up productivity by 88%.

I was pretty nervous about talking to a life coach. I was skeptical and really didn't want to throw away my money. But I was relieved when Jordan saw that I was looking for a life coach and reached out to me. She was the sweetest coach I could have asked for! I didn't have a clue where my life was going or how to make an impact on the world. I talked with Jordan and she started by giving me personality and interest quizzes. From there, she encouraged me to look at my special skills and talents that not a lot of other people had. She gave me ideas on how I could use this information I had learned about myself to improve myself and make some kind of impact. She helped me feel confident and proud of myself. I am now volunteering for an organization that helps to protect the environment and I'm even thinking about studying environmental science at a community college. My money was well spent and I am so glad that Jordan found me!

Alissa helped and encouraged me to have more self confidence, better balance, and a more positive view on my life. Through working with her I realized I wanted to go back to school. I was able to feel good about myself by creating and achieving goals. I am now in school and proud to say I am making all As. I highly recommend Alissa as a life coach in whatever goal you are trying to achieve.

I was at a crossroads in my undergrad education - I just wasn't sure what my next steps would be and how to end up in the kind of career where I could thrive and meet my life goals. Jan helped me figure all that out. She knows alot about what you need to get to where you want to go. And she can also help you figure out where you want to go.
“Mark taught me how to perform job market research, prepare for interviews, and understand the intricacies of negotiation. Thanks to Mark I feel much more confident in these areas and am very excited for a prosperous future in the tech industry."
I attended Dr. Wixy's "Defeating Your Nemesis" session a couple of weeks after the last school year ended. It was so wonderful to put my worst student of the year out of my head. I was able to forget about him, enjoy my summer, and not carry him with me into this school year.
I originally wanted to work with Zanetta to improve my interviewing skills. We started by reviewing and making tweaks to my resume. I received a job offer so our sessions went from interviewing to negotiating. Since this was the first time I'd done any negotiating, Zanetta helped me write a script to use that included talking points and the best way to ask for what I wanted. Everything went really well and I got the offer I was looking for. I really appreciate all the help Zanetta gave me.

Deciding What I Want to Study

Every year, people go to academic institutions in order to pursue their passions and start off their professional career with a quality education.

However, being intelligent and driven isn’t enough – a student must also be focused. One of the most important aspects of higher education is knowing what to study.

How do I go about deciding what I want to study? This is a question many students and prospective students have asked themselves. Making the right choice is important, as making the wrong one can derail a person’s entire educational experience.

For anyone who is having trouble deciding what to study, consulting a trained academic coach can be a wise move. These coaches are good at helping people discover what major they’d be best suited for.

Sometimes it can be helpful to consider what we’re good at, or what we think the world could benefit from. It’s also wise to explore the timelines and curriculums of each major, as this can also affect a person’s decision.

Finding the right course of study is vital for having a good experience regardless of the type of academic institution a person attends. With help from a coach, anyone can get help with this important decision.

What I most appreciated about working with Lynn Saboe was her ability to listen and effectively challenge me to develop executable plans that fit my style and experience, and to implement these plans in just two months. Thanks to her support, the quality and speed of my transition was substantially enhanced.

Zsofia Juhasz is an accomplished coach, who uses powerful questions to help her client move forward. She is empathetic without being soft, she is strong without being tough. She is also adept at listening for changes in energy levels, and celebrating when she hears a positive change. Adept at using imagery to help reframe perspectives, and visualisation to create positive goals, she skillfully guides her client to the end goal. I highly recommend her services.
