what are the benefits of working with a Coach?

Whether you want individual, group, leadership  or team coaching all of these apply.

Emotional Intelligence

You will become more self-aware of how you feel, process and think about emotions.  Improving your emotional intelligence is associated with better work habits and happier relationships.  Emotional Intelligence can be learned and improved. 

Better Relationships

Improved Emotional Intelligence leads to better understanding of both yourself and others.

Improved Communication Skills

Becoming self-aware leads to opportunities for better self-expression so you can say what you need to say when you have to say something. 

Clearly Defined Goals

With the knowledge of what you want to accomplish it is easier to create a path and a plan for how to get to where you want to be. 

Increased self-confidence & self-esteem

The more you know yourself, have a clear goal and a path to get there, you feel better about yourself and the world around you. 


Working with a Coach helps you stay accountable.. both to yourself and someone else.  It is very important when making changes to have a good cheerleader at your side to help you through those challenging times of transition.

Better coping ability to handle stress

Stress can be overwhelming.  Coaching can give you the skills and the tools to take stress in stride and not let it drag you down. 

Increased well being and happiness

Having plans and goals and a clear path of action on how to accomplish those goals will lead to improved overall well being.  Improved well being will bring with it greater feelings of joy and happiness. 

Opportunity for practicing increased vulnerability

It can be difficult to be open, trusting and vulnerable.  Working with a coach in a safe space gives you the opportunity to practice opening up that part of you.
