My Values & Beliefs
Coaching asks that a person bring their authentic self, be willing to be asked evocative questions, be willing to challenge one's beliefs, assumptions, biases and leverage their strengths to overcome obstacles that may be keeping them from reaching their goals, practice self-regulation of emotions, be courageous and build resilience.
Clarify Expectations, Connect, & Seek Understanding for Agreement.
To be successful, coaching asks that there is a basic understanding of what is desired from the coaching engagement.
Open up to others, respect, and value others' perspectives.
Since coaching is a partnership, ask yourself whether collaboration, other viewpoints, and new perspectives are valued.
