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%.

During the transition into my new position as a Senior Executive for the Department of the Interior, I was fortunate to have established a connection with Lynn. Lynn quickly made me feel at ease, even though our meetings were all virtual. Lynn was always a supportive and reassuring presence to provide me feedback on managing difficult employees, what to expect from my new role as a Senior Executive, how to improve morale within my program area, and to provide goals for not only myself but how to effectively communicate new ideas and encourage critical thinking within my staff area and Senior Executive associates. I will attest, I endured some very difficult times during my time as Director, and Lynn always was there to provide a listening ear, and offer various ways of support to navigate through those tenuous times. Having retired from 30 years of federal service, Lynn was also there to assist me with that transition. And what a transition it is! I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone who is considering a professional career coach, regardless of whether you are just starting a career, or at the highest levels of management. Having Lynn in your corner will help build the confidence needed to take on great challenges!

I am not a young person anymore, I must say, as I retired from a very busy and successful working life. Nevertheless, I liked to think I was in a quite good physical and mental condition, specially compared with some friends of mine, all about my age. But I was not satisfied in the comfort of that comparison and not resigned with certain subtle feelings about myself that became stronger every day. So I shared those thoughts with Paula and she designed for me a truly personal and holistic program, after a deep knowledge of my daily behaviours, including regular activities I have nowadays, what I usually eat, how and when, but also taking into consideration my preferences, what I like to do and eat, what I reject and why. This “tailored made” program matches with my profound belief that there is not a recipe for everyone to improve or change habits, behaviours or solve personal discomfort of any kind. We are not all the same. And that is the reason I follow Paula´s coaching with less effort and saw very quick results. Those results are materialised every day (lost weight, regained energy and mental clarity, incorporated healthy changes) and I am encouraged to follow her coaching, as now I know there is no age or personal situation that prevent us to be more satisfied with ourselves.

"OK, I was skeptical at first as I don't have a whole lot of faith in coaching. Ramon proved me wrong. His sessions are more than a quick shoulder massage and the "you are a great guy" routine. After asking some deep questions, he provides you with tangible, manageable and actionable steps unique to your particular situation. He's a nice, affable guy and I encourage you to spend a bit of time chatting with him."

I had the pleasure and benefit of working with Catherine and UpShift Coaching as part of my personal plan to get the much needed coaching as I embarked on a journey of leaving corporate life behind. I worked with Catherine for 4 months prior to my final day in corporate life. Needless to say I was nervous about leaving the world of deadlines, deliverables, daily pressures and the need to achieve every day behind, after all that is all I have ever known and like most of us in corporate life it does consume you and become you. Catherine is a tremendous coach. She helped me see my new world and the possibilities of shifting from a world dominated by achievements to a new world enriched in fulfilling opportunities that synch up with my personal values. She has a unique ability to ask those provocative questions that quite simply stopped me dead in my tracks causing me to reflect about what is important to me and how these deeply rooted values could shape this new world of mine. She has given me a tremendous kick-start into this new phase of life and with her help I face it not with fear, trepidation or ambiguity but with a sense of direction, wonder and a ‘world of possibilities’ mindset. Catherine – awesome job couldn’t have gotten this far on the road to change without your careful guidance, insights and those “questions”. Thanks and will be in touch.

Saving Money for Retirement

With bills, debts, and personal spending all demanding a portion of our income, saving money for retirement can be hard.

Even those who are financially responsible and forward-thinking may notice that putting away cash for their later years can be challenging. Proper retirement-planning helps people enjoy life after they’ve completed their time in the workforce. In order to plan effectively, many people enlist the help of a professional coach.

Managing our own finances can be hard, since we’re always forced to take a personal perspective when dealing with the issue. An outsider’s view can sometimes reveal new strategies to make retirement-saving easier.

Saving up money to prepare for retirement can require a person to change up their budget, explore unique investment opportunities, and refine their approach to money management as a whole. Skilled coaches with a history of handling this important need can help people master the techniques necessary to save now in preparation for later.

When a person has enough money saved up for retirement, they can enjoy time with family, the pursuit of personal hobbies, or simply some peaceful relaxation time. Knowing that the financial side of things is in order takes a great deal of stress off any retiree.

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.
