What if you just did some thinking for 10 minutes? - Not doing. - Not processing. - Not crossing off lists. - Just thinking. What question would you want to be answering?

Is coaching right for me? Are you ready to make a change – take control of your career? At a crossroads? Turning an idea into an entrepreneurial venture? Switching jobs? Moving up in your career or or planning your next chapter? Is your inner artist tired of being ignored? Coaching works by creating a judgement-free zone where you have the freedom to stretch and explore what’s possible, redefine your goals, expose things you cannot see, overcome fears, create a plan, and do the work that produces results. Scheduling a complimentary one-on-one coaching session in person if you are in the Boston, MA area or by phone or SKYPE is easy. Experience how coaching with me works. If you decide to move forward, we will design the best coaching program for you. If I am not the best coach for you, I will happily recommend another.
What are my coaching options? Spotlight Coaching Big ideas, huge breakthroughs and a totally new perspective can produce outrageous results. When it’s time to focus on a single idea, opportunity or challenge schedule a 90 minute high energy spotlight session by phone or Skype. Ideas pop up fast. Record the session and you won’t lose a single idea. One-on-One Coaching In one-on-one coaching, you and I meet for a 60-minute session by phone or Skype. You set the agenda, explore your options and walk away with an action plan. For the best results, expect to meet 2 – 4 times a month and I will be available by phone and email between sessions. Email Nancy to discuss specifics. Group Coaching Got a big idea to discuss or a problem to solve? Arrange a small group (6 – 8 people) coaching session. The group decides on the topic, sets the agenda and meets for 60 or 90 minutes in person, by phone or Skype. Conversations are dynamic and you will walk away with a slew of ideas and interesting new perspectives. Email Nancy to arrange for group coaching.
What can I achieve through coaching? Show-up for your coaching sessions with an open mind and ready to work. Be prepared to fully engage in the conversation. Follow your curiosity and use your imagination to explore what’s possible. Design specific action plans and then do the work between sessions. You will see consistent progress and the final result may just exceed your original objectives. In your sessions, expect to:
Find clarity about what’s most important to you, why you want it and what is holding you back
Stretch to explore a full range of possibilities
Discover how other people see you
Gain a new appreciation for your strengths, talents, passions, values and past accomplishments
Analyze the past to discover unproductive patterns
Discover what blocks your progress
Reframe past experiences
Create strategies to resolve conflicts and produce results
Can coaching fail? Unfortunately, yes. Coaching doesn’t work when a coach and client fail to “click” and are unable to establish the trust which is essential to open and honest communication. Please schedule a complimentary 30-minute coaching session with me and see for yourself if coaching is right for you and if I am the coach you want to work with. Coaching works when you show-up for your sessions with an open mind and ready to work – even if you don’t have a specific topic to discussion. During a multi-month coaching process, we assess what is and isn’t working at the end of each month and make the necessary adjustments before we move forward.
How can I tell if the coaching is working? As you begin coaching, the change you want to create starts to come into focus. Starting with the first session and continuing over weeks or months, you decide where you want to focus your energy and what actions you want to take. You zero-in on what is most important then figure out what to do and take action. We acknowledge your actions and build on the knowledge and experience you gain to achieve your goals and create real and sustainable change.
Count on consistent acknowledgement from me. As your confidence grows, it becomes easier to stretch your imagination, make important breakthroughs, identify blind spots, persevere through setbacks, overcome obstacles and achieve results. Be prepared to create results that far exceed the expectations you set when you began coaching.
Once I’ve achieved my goals...then what? You celebrate! The hard work is done and you have the results to prove it.
