"But I don't need a life coach."  

If you're like a lot of people, you've probably heard someone mention needing a life coach. Let's be clear, life coaching is not therapy. We will address your past experiences for references, but the idea is to propel you forward. Life coaching helps you define what you want, why you want it and how to get there. Together we work to uncover blocks that have held you back and develop coping strategies to create more flow in your life. It's an investment that will pay you back in dividends of happiness, less stress and more clarity. 

If you're feeling unsure about which package is the right fit for you, feel free to contact me today for a free consultation. Most packages can be customized to any budget or scheduling restraints.

Energy Leadership Index Assessment (ELI)

There are two main types of assessments: Personality and Attitudinal. Personality based assessments, such as Myers Briggs and D.I.S.C. are super valuable tools that pinpoint certain personality types so that people can have more of an understanding about what their strengths and weaknesses are. By understanding your personality and how it relates to what you do, you can adapt your behavior to “work with what you have,” to function effectively. What the personality assessments lack is a strategy to move forward or change from the label of those four letters.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment that measures your level of energy based on your attitude, or perception and perspective of your world. Because attitude is subjective, it can be altered. By starting your coaching process with the ELI, you can alter your attitude and perspective, make a shift in your consciousness, and increase your energy and leadership effectiveness.

Does Life Coaching Work?

Someone recently asked me if life coaching works. Before I dive into answering that questions, let’s first look at what life coaching is, what it isn’t and what it can do for you or someone you may know.

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a structure between a Life Coach (preferably certified through an affiliated program of the International Coaching Federation) and a client (you). Coaching sessions should be based on the client’s goals and objectives and it is the coach’s job to listen, ask questions and dig into areas of interest and concern. The coach’s job is to actively listen to the motivation, challenges and blocks that can work for or against the client. The coach works with the client to create a plan to achieve goals and address blocks.

What a Life Coach Isn’t…

A Consultant — Unlike a consultant, a coach isn’t going to give you a report and tell you how to live your life.

A Therapist — There are many overlaps as therapists are now adopting coaching practices. The key difference between therapy and coaching is therapy tends to focus on resolving past trauma and issues where a coach addresses past trends and works to launch you into your future dream life.

A Mentor — A mentor is there to tell you about their experiences and offer suggestions based on their path. A coach may have past knowledge, but will use them to sound board to customize your plan.

A Sports Coach — No whistles, play by play or sideline yelling for Life Coaches. Although a Life Coach may be your cheerleader, the plays are developed for the client and there is no winning or losing (seriously!)

What Can a Life Coach Do For You?

A Life Coach has one objective, to make sure the client is getting what they need. For me a Life Coach opened my eyes to limiting beliefs, assumptions and interpretations that were holding me back from making big decisions like leaving my marriage and job and starting a new career and life in DC. A Life Coach is there to support you, however that may be. Whether it’s challenging you on negative self-talk, reframing challenges into opportunities, or just taking the time to dream, a Life Coach can help spark your creativity, motivation and engagement in life.

The key is consistency. By working with a coach on a regular and consistent basis, plans can be developed, tweaked and executed. When clients can be accountable to someone who only wants to see them succeed, it creates a win-win environment for awesomeness!

So Does Life Coaching Work?

Yes, if you’re ready to invest the time, energy and money in yourself. If you aren’t ready to be in 100%, a Life Coach can’t convince you to live your best life. This is a big decision. It typically takes a client two to eight months to start the program if they aren’t ready the day of their consult. It’s totally normal to take your time. It’s a big decision with a big price tag. But the alternative is the same of what hasn’t been working for you. It’s the same as hiring a personal trainer. If you half-ass it, don’t stick to the diet or don’t show up for sessions, you can’t expect good results.

There is a price to every decision. When you’re ready to work, life coaching will work for you.

I’m an entrepreneur with a co-founder, and I highly recommend (more so for the sake of someone you work closely alongside) that you get a coach to keep you on the hook. Even the most self-aware people need a third-party take on their lives. I gravitate toward people who give direct, sometimes punch-in-the-gut feedback. It’s not for everyone, but it’s for me. Just give it to me straight, so I can begin pivoting and be a better human than I was 5 minutes ago.

As my former CrossFit Coach, I knew how Lauren pushed me in the gym, and I figured if I wanted a no-pain, no-gain approach I would enlist Lauren to do so outside the gym as well. Lauren’s not a therapist, consultant or mentor – she’s a coach and by her own definition helps you move “from present function to future vision.” I have many flaws, but self-awareness isn’t one of them. I was curious as to what Lauren could possibly tell me that I didn’t already know needed work, but within 5 minutes of our first conversation she was tugging at some sore spots I didn’t even know were tender.  I highly recommend her as an executive coach!

I spoke with Lauren a while back about how unhappy I was with regards to my personal health.  I am married, I have two young children, and I hold down two jobs.  Lauren listened while I went through my reasons for how difficult it was to include any time for exercise in my life.  I told her about my life long addiction to food and the negative correlation it had with my emotions.  I felt defeated with who I had allowed myself to become.  I was lost and years of self-afflicting doubt had me emotionally anchored to someone I didn’t want to be anymore.  Lauren was patient with me and went through each layer and educated me on the reasons as to why I was feeling the way I was.  Lauren also took the time to explore what I could do to challenge my own mindset.  She worked with me to set up a plan and generate some attainable short term goals.  Less than a year later, I have dropped 50 pounds, I have found my love again for weightlifting, I have found a new love for running, and I recently just competed in my first 5K.  I am a new person, both physically and mentally.  I have Lauren to thank for providing the spark I needed to break free.
