Why Coaching?

Coaching focuses on the present and looks toward the future.  As a coach I assist clients to view a life or business situation and encourage clients to discover what actions to pursue next.

My personal coaching may include coaching on topics such as relationship with others, productivity, time management, finances, a career path, health, wellness and much more.

Through coaching I ask powerful questions which assists the client to come up with their own solutions.  The answers are within the client.  This helps the client to take action and move closer towards what they want in life.

Why me?

As your coach I inspire you to pursue what you truly want in life. 🙂 ~ Patti

Keeping love ALIVE

One morning I was on my way to work and I saw this young couple sitting together waiting for the bus.  I could just see the love radiating between the two of them. They were looking at some photos on her cell phone. It was just so beautiful seeing the two of them and just seeing the smiles on their face and the way that they sat together. The way that they looked at each other young love.

How do you keep that love alive in a long time relationship such as 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 years?

What are the secret steps to keep it at that level so every time you are with this person you both still feel close to the same way that you felt at the beginning of your relationship?

Here are some example of possible ways:

  • Schedule once a week to go out to dinner or a date night.
  • Write a small text or email saying something nice or why you love your partner.
  • Say “I love you” at least everyday to your partner.
  • Do something small and nice for partner.
  • Watch a TV show once a week that you both like together.
  • Go for a walk together.
  • Eat dinner together and really listen to each other.
  • Reminiscence about the good times.
  •  Talk nice to each other.

What steps do you take to keep the love alive?

What steps will you take to keep the love alive?

It would be wonderful to see your thoughts, comments., suggestions on what you do to keep the love alive 🙂  ~ Patti

What is a Leader?

Last year I was one of fourteen coaches accepted to write a chapter in a book called Coaching Perspectives IV.  It was an honor and privilege to write a chapter.  I learned so much from the process and really went out of my comfort zone.  Being a coach is encouraging others to reach their greatest potential and get out of their comfort zone to achieve it.  When you see them accomplishing their purpose with confidence it bring such a smile to my face and joy in my heart.  Being a leader to your employees and seeing them accomplish their goals is similar.  Having pride watching them conquer their goals and learning new things.  Seeing them improving, growing with knowledge and confidence is so satisfying as a supervisor or manager.

This week a former employee of mine interviewed me for her last class assignment which was to interview a Leader.  She stated that I exemplify leadership to her.  Talk about a compliment.  I was very flattered that she picked me to interview.    This really got me thinking about the chapter I wrote “Coaching for Leadership”.  One of the sections in the chapter is called “What is a Leader?’

Here is a small portion from the chapter “Coaching for Leadership” from the book Coaching Perspectives IV.

What is a Leader?

A leader is someone who is there for her staff.  A leader listens with compassion and understanding, and assists whenever possible.  She comes up with workplace solutions and evaluates how her decisions affect others.  She is someone willing to stand out, stand up, and be part of the solutions that help to achieve mutual goals.  At times, a leader may be a mentor or a coach.  She knows that being a leader can be demanding and challenging job.  Good leaders learn from their mistakes.  Copyright © 2014 by the Center for Coaching Certification LLC.

My question to you:  What is a Leader to YOU?

It would be wonderful to see your thoughts and comments. 🙂  ~ Patti

OPEN the DOOR

Opening the DOOR

OPEN the DOOR

“When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.” Alexander Graham Bell

The quote above is so true.  Too many of us are looking at the past (closed door) instead of the present (open door).  We just seem to be stuck behind that slammed door.  We don’t even try to grab the knob and turn it towards something better.  If we learn from the past (closed door) and (open the door) we could change our future.  By turning the knob of that closed door and not rehashing it over and over again in our mind it will help us to move on.  Open that door and don’t look back.  Make better choices with an optimistic attitude and many doors will begin to open.  Be grateful for those open doors (people) who assisted you along the way.  Return the favor when able and help those who are stuck behind closed doors as well.

I was reading an article today from Barb Wade, Business Coach & Mentor – http://www.BarbWade.com and she stated “We are responsible for everything in our lives being exactly the way they are”.  The question she asked was “How could I be responsible for so many of the things in my life that seemed to be happening to me?”  This question hits you like a slammed door in the face.  Wow!

Are we responsible for everything that happens in our lives?  I think “yes” and “no”.  We are responsible for our thoughts and actions, which may lead to the door being closed or open.

Question to ponder: What closed doors are you stuck behind which need to be pushed wide open?

It would be wonderful to see your thoughts and comments. 🙂  ~ Patti
