With your own Life Coach, Personal Coach or Business Coach You can achieve better results in less time - Improve Health, Happiness, and Wealth
Every champion has a coach. Every team has a coach. The reason is that everyone performs better and gets better results when they have a coach working with them. In that respect you are the same as everyone else - if you work with a life coach or personal coach you will perform better and get better results.
In your heart you know that you could be using more of your potential, but you are not. Why not change that right now. Click here to set up a free coaching session.
We all face challenges from time to time. It might be with personal life, career, finances or achieving goals. You have probably felt frustrated with your progress in one of these areas. You may want to make a major life or career change, improve your self confidence or self esteem, achieve more or get more of something. But when it comes to taking action, you can't get it together, and that leaves you feeling a little frustrated or maybe even desperate. That is where I come in.
I have the skills and experience to help you identify the issues, find the solutions, and keep you focused on the things that will produce the results you are looking for. I have been coaching for over fifteen years, initially working with senior managers in a corporate environment, and for the last ten years also with small business owners and individuals.
I am an internationally recognized expert in project management, and will help you to use a project management approach to the targets you are going after. Big corporations use project management processes to achieve their targets, because it works. It can work for you as well.
I am also an internationally recognized writer and lecturer on the subject of the mind, and how to use it to achieve better results.
My challenge to you, is to dig out those dreams of how life could be - the ones that may have been buried by the busy life you are leading, and think about how you will feel on the last day of your life when you have lived those dreams. Rather than continuing the life you have lead up until now, start today to take steps towards living the dreams.
What happens with Coaching?
Your Life Coach or Personal Coach works as a partner helping you to achieve specific business or personal targets or goals. The coaching sessions are usually 30 minutes each, and usually weekly, and are by telephone. It doesn't matter where in the world you are physically, the coaching session is with you in your office or home, where you are comfortable and free from distractions. There is no wasted travel time, just solid coaching.
We define what it is you want to achieve from each coaching session. I will ask you questions designed to help you define the way forward for you, and to help you uncover things about yourself or your business, that will help you to become clear about your priorities and actions. You will decide during each coaching session how you will take action during the period until the next coaching session. You will come away from the coaching sessions feeling inspired to get on with the process, take action and make progress. Anyone with a dream and a plan for achieving it, who takes daily action towards achieving their dream, becomes unstoppable. That is how you will feel after our coaching sessions.
If you are ready to feel inspired by your life, and delighted with the results you are getting from your life, then click here to get prepared for your free trial coaching session. You have nothing to lose. The worst that can happen is that you will understand first hand, from an expert, what having a Life Coach or Personal Coach is all about, and maybe this is the thing you will do that will turn your whole life around.
PS If you are reading this then something is making you hesitate to take advantage of this fantastic offer of a free coaching session with a life coach. I urge you to listen carefully to what your mind is telling you that is making you hesitate. The mind is a very predictable thing. That message that your mind is using right now to stop you from looking at an opportunity that could lead you to having the great things that you want in life, is exactly the same message that your mind has used successfully to stop you changing in the past. Remember what that message is, because the next time you hear your mind say that, you will be in a similar situation, where you have an opportunity to do something new or to change in some way, and your mind is trying to stop you.
Do you know why your mind would try to stop you from doing something that has no risk, and maybe could lead to a much happier, healthier and wealthier life? It seems a bit crazy doesn't it, but there is a very good reason, and just understanding that reason could change the rest of your life. If you want to understand this then click here, and ask me about it during your free coaching session.
If your mind is telling you that you should check out what other coaches are offering, so that you can make an informed decision, then I have created a page for you. I have asked google to place my competitors advertisments on my web site, so it is easy for you to see what they offer. Just click here to go to that page. Google tells me that if you refresh that page you will be able to see even more of my competitors. I know that some of you will find what you are looking for there, and that is fine. If you want to try me before you decide just click here.
Some of Tony's Coaching Principles
Past, Present and Future The past is over. You can't change it anymore that you can change what you had for dinner last night. It is only good for two things, learning from mistakes, and celebrating successes. We won't spend much time on the past. The present is this instant. It is good for how you feel, and what are you actually doing at this moment, and good for remembering that it is the start of the rest of your life. It is also the time to make decisions, to decide to act. Procrastinating, sitting on the fence, or doing nothing are not part of coaching (making a decision to do nothing and then doing that is part of coaching, but doing nothing because you didn't get around to deciding anything, is not). Your future starts in less than a second, and goes on for the rest of your life. It is when you will think and do the things that will give you your results for the rest of your life. Most of our coaching focus is on the future.
What you want Most people can look back on the past and say what they didn't like. As your coach my job is to help you do something a little more difficult - to decide what you want, and what you are going to do about that.
Action If there is no action, then there are no results. Usually my clients expect results, so they should also expect when they finish a coaching session, that they will take action. Action is also one of the things that raises your self awareness, or gives you insights into your character. You need to ask your boss for a pay rise before you really learn about your fear of doing it, or about how to get past that fear.
Fun When you are working towards a goal, you are either having fun, or you are not. When you are not having fun, you are learning. The fun I am talking about here is not the fun you are having with your friends drinking a bit too much on a Friday evening. Fun is the fun you have that you remember for a long time. It comes from working towards a goal, and finally getting what you wanted. It is a feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment. When you have that feeling, the difficult times that you may have gone through on the way, don't seem too bad, and you actually feel satisfaction with what you learned from them.
A free trial or exploratory coaching session is fun. Even if you feel a little nervous about it right now, make a decision and take action. Click here to set up a free coaching session.
I doubt you would have read this far if there wasn't something in your future that you have doubts about achieving, or something in your past that you do not want to continue. If you are thinking that you will achieve what you want just as well without a coach, ask yourself why you haven't achieved it already. You may find that coaching will give you something that you have not had in the past, and that could make a big difference. If you want results that are different to the ones you have now, then you have to do something different. One of those things could be to click here to set up a free coaching session.
This section outlines how I prefer to work, so that you know what to expect. This is the boring part of this page, as it is really the rules that I prefer to work by. As with any rules, if you need something different, ask! The structure can be changed if we both agree, but that doesn't mean that we can have no structure. My business depends on you being delighted with the results that you get. Successful people focus on the delightful results they are going to achieve and do whatever it takes to achieve them. Less successful people focus on delightful methods of trying to get results, or of avoiding things that they should do but don't want to, and do that. I work with people who are prepared to try thinking and acting like successful people.
I usually coach by phone with email support. Occasionally I coach face to face at the Harmoniahuone ( www.harmoniahuone.com ) office in Helsinki, Finland. If possible I use Skype ( www.skype.com ) as my phone, so I prefer that you either use Skype or a landline telephone, as even with the latest version of Skype, the call quality is often not good to a mobile phone. If there is a problem with call quality, I will switch to a mobile or landline phone.
The day before each coaching session you will fill out and send to me a coaching form which is a preparation form that helps to make sure you get the most value from the coaching session. You send it the day before so that I have time to prepare for the session. This form will take you between 5 and 30 minutes to fill out each week, and in that time you will reflect on what you have achieved, what is still to be done, and how you will use me in our next session. I have found that this really helps to make the coaching session as valuable for you as possible. If you send it on time I will review it before our session. If you send it in late, you will still get value from it, but I will not read it before our session. If you don't send the form in at all, I will ask you to hang up, and call me back in 5 minutes after you have filled it in. As with all these rules, you may ask that we don't use this form. I may agree if you are still committed to being well prepared, and you know how you want to use me.
A standard coaching session is 30 minutes long, and your support in finishing on time is appreciated. Longer sessions can be arranged if we both feel that it would be valuable. I am also available between our session times if you need coaching on an issue, or you can't wait to tell me about something great. I do not charge anything extra for this, but I do ask that you keep the calls short, say under 5 minutes.
With most clients we work in a four week cycle. One coaching session per week for three weeks, and a break on the forth week. You are still free to send your coaching form in on the forth week if you wish.
You are free to email me between sessions to tell me something great has happened, to have me review something, to ask a question or to clarify something, or to request coaching on something at our next session. How much you use this is up to you.
During the coaching session I will ask you to tell me what you will achieve before the next session. I may suggest some things. If you feel that my suggestions are too much or too little, say so. I expect you to do what you say you will do. I do not expect you to get to the next session with items not achieved. If your situation or your priorities change, you renegotiate your commitment to me straight away. If I ask a question like 'Will you do this by next week?' you are free to say yes, suggest a different thing to do or time to do it in, or say no.
In the coaching sessions we are working on the things you have decided are the most important. This means they are your priority items, so working on them, including the coaching, is also your priority. As your coach, I do not help you to find ways of not achieving what you want. I do not carry sessions over to the next week, and you may not cancel a coaching session once we have scheduled it together. If you give me warning in advance and I have a slot free in the same week I will offer it to you. If you miss a scheduled session, you will be charged for it.
Billing is by credit card (Not Diners or Amex at the moment) or Paypal every four weeks in advance. If you are serious about your goals, I give 25% discount if you pay for a twelve week block in advance, and 33% discount if you pay for a twenty four week block. When we have been working together for say three to six months you may feel that you have the momentum you want and you want to reduce to two sessions every four weeks (30% discount) or perhaps only one session every four weeks (60% discount), supported by email. After six months of coaching we can talk about something I call Just In Time coaching. This is where we don't schedule regular coaching sessions, but you call when you want coaching.
Our coaching continues as long as you feel you are getting great value for your investment of time and money. If you don't feel that way then we either change something so that you do, or we stop.
Your investment in coaching is part of your commitment to your goals. Holding you to your commitment is part of my job as your coach. One way that I do that is by making your four weekly payment non-refundable, especially if your request for a refund is because you have changed your priorities and now don't have time for achieving your goals.
Our agreement for coaching lasts until the end of your billing cycle. However, even if you have paid for more than four weeks in advance you may cancel our agreement at the end of any four week cycle, and you will receive a refund for the unused four week blocks. Be aware however that the months used will be billed at the discount rate that goes with what actually happened. For example you paid for three blocks of four weeks and received a 25% discount. You cancel the agreement after four weeks, and are billed the standard rate for that month, and refunded the balance of your payment. If you paid for six blocks of four weeks and received a 33% discount, and you cancel after four blocks are finished, you are billed for the four blocks used at a 25% discount rate.
While I am talking about things that have the potential to leave one or both of us dissatisfied if they are not understood in advance, I also have another rule. I have, so far, never used it, although I have had a client who broke the rule. I point it out so that you are aware of it, and I have a way out of our agreement if I find coaching you starts to get me down. I reserve the right to terminate our agreement at any time if you, more than once are not on time for our coaching session, do not complete the things you promised, or are late in payment. I hope you understand that I like to work with and help people who are prepared to help themselves. I don't get any satisfaction if you are not moving towards your goals.
Now, if you are still with me you really do have persistence. I'm looking forward to working with you. Click here to set up a free coaching session.
Just before I go, I'd like to mention that I love to have new clients who come to me because an existing client referred them to me. It gives me a great buzz, because it is an acknowledgement that I am doing a great job, and that is much better than someone who found me on the internet. If you know someone who could use a coach, email me their contact details and I'll contact them, or you could send them to http://www.mypowerfulmind.com/page/page/1972025.htm . Ask them to put your name in the comments box as the person who referred them to me. If they become a client I'll give you a free week of coaching.
