Why Work with a Coach?

A certified professional coach will give you unbiased, open and trustworthy feedback, insight and accountability that is 100% focused on what you want. Every conversation is confidential and built around the client’s agenda and goals. This is your time to live your best life. 

 

Differences between Coaching, Therapy, Mentoring, and Consulting

Coaches work with clients to build and achieve their personal goals and visions for their most awesome life. "So you're like a therapist??" Here's a breakdown between coaching, therapy and consulting. 

A therapist is awesome for getting you from a place of dysfunction (past) to a state of function (present). If you feel like your work with a therapist keeps you on memory repeat, a coach may be a good option to move you into your future plans.

A mentor is amazing for someone who has blazed the same trail you would like to go down and they will tell you exactly how to do it. A coach will assess your goals and values to help you build and live in your dream trail. For example, how do you think this career or goal will change you or your life once it's accomplished?

A consultant is fantastic for telling you exactly what you need to do to address a problem. A coach will help you dive in to uncover your own solutions and will help you be accountable to see it through.

A coach’s job is to get you from present function to future vision. They listen to the goal behind the goal and identify areas of "stuckness" and work with clients to resolve and move through the blocks to get to their ideal goals.

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!

An organization is only as good as the people in it, and Lauren LeMunyan’s positive people- focus and strategies helped to align my team with their strengths and collaborative relationships. Her high energy, fun methodology resonates with all generations and results in both introspection and team building experiences. I recommend Lauren as a coach to kick start your team in a fun, energetic, positive atmosphere that will elevate relationships and build strong teams.

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.
