Coaching is a forward-looking, action-oriented process that focuses on moving the client from “stuck” to a flexible and expansive way of thinking and acting. Clients have used coaching to problem-solve a specific issue or to develop long-term management strategies for a span of competing demands in their work life and career.
The client and coach collaborate in this process — the client driving the agenda and the coach providing support. O Positive Coaching uses evidence-based research on what’s effective for adult learning and behavior change.
Coaching is not a replacement for psychotherapy, psychiatric, or medical care; referrals will be provided when possible.
A usual question about coaching is “how long will it take?” Clients generally coach anywhere from three to six months or longer, with the actual length of time dependent on the client’s goals, and available time, energy level, and focus to follow through on critical commitments. If you are highly motivated then coaching can move rather quickly.
