PERSONAL GROWTH COACHING PHILOSOPHY
Since Ancient Greece, athletes have used coaches to increase their focus and to provide support, structure, and ongoing accountability to prepare them to win competitions. More recently, high level executives have discovered that coaching has helped them create winning teams and enabled them to move to a higher level of effectiveness and profitability. Within the last 20 years, individuals have begun to realize the benefits of working with growth coaches which has resulted in an increasing number of organizations and individuals hiring coaches. We humans have a deep need to grow and develop, to actualize our potential, but we often cannot achieve it on our own. Coaches help people move from where they are to where they want to be – to realize their full potential.
