What Called Me To Coaching?

Many people ask me how I found out about coaching and what started me on this path. Iím going to try to give you a simple response to this transition.

I came upon coaching at the National Wellness Conference in July, 2001, at a day long session presented by Dr. Karen Wolfe. Within minutes of hearing what coaching was about, I knew without a doubt that this was the concept I had been searching for. I couldnít think of anything that would fit better with my personality and background in health promotion/wellness. It would allow me to positively impact people and to have the type of lifestyle I had hoped for.


I soon discovered that coaching is one of the fastest growing professions. You can find out more about coaching on my website .


Once I decided that coaching was the direction I wanted to pursue, I began taking the steps to get me there. Most of my spare time outside of my full-time job was spent developing my own business and gathering information about coaching programs. I linked with other coaches and people who could support me on this adventure.


On 11-01-01, Whole Life Visions became official. What a coincidence that my P.O. Box is 1101! In December, I attended Coaching for Excellence through CorePath (A New Ventures West introductory course). Shortly after this training I began The Newfield Networkís Coaching for Professional and Personal Mastery Program.


This 9 month program is accredited by the International Coach Federation and is designed with the high standards necessary to establish coaching as a profession. I attended three national conferences in Washington, D.C. and one regional conference in Chicago, IL. In between, I worked in small groups by e-mail and teleconferences and completed monthly learning guides. In addition, I was guided by a Master Certified Newfield Network Mentor Coach . Now that the course is complete, I will be seeking certification from The Newfield Network and from The International Coach Federation (ICF). This has been one of the most amazing, indescribable life changing experiences!


The ICF is the professional association of personal and business coaches that seeks to preserve the integrity of coaching around the globe. They are the largest non-profit professional association worldwide of personal and business coaches with more than 5000 members and 179 chapters in 30 countries.


In September, 2002, I moved on from my job and now dedicate my days to coaching with wonderful people, doing workshops and consulting. To say the least, the past year and a half have brought many changes and a new life that is rewarding and challenging. It hasnít been easy but itís definitely one of the best things Iíve ever done. Thanks again to everyone for their support, encouragement and understanding! I love coaching and believe itís one of the best avenues toward personal growth and development. ††



My Offer

If you have a life Ė you can benefit from a coach. If you donít have a life Ė then you really need a coach! As a coach, I offer people one of the most sincere relationships they will ever have. In this partnership they can create the life they love and live the life they create. At times, I show them a perspective they havenít seen or donít want to see. This helps people design their life so that they can achieve what they want.


I would be honored to share this information with you and others. So, donít hesitate to invite me to come to your next staff meeting or social gathering. 


Also, one of my requirements for certification is that I submit 2 taped coaching sessions to be reviewed by their board. Are you interested? All I ask is that you be open to the possibilities to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about yourself, others and coaching. If itís not something you would consider for yourself please pass this onto at least one other person that you feel it could benefit. You have nothing to lose.


My Request

My request is that you will be an advocate for me and the profession of coaching. Iím a pioneer for coaching locally. One of my goals is to spread the word so that others can benefit. I value your assistance and would appreciate your support. Iím very grateful to those of you who have referred coaching clients, workshops and consulting opportunities my way. †† †

ďAh-HaĒ Moments

1. On a scale of 0 to 10, where would you rate your satisfaction with your life?

2. What would it look and feel like if you were a 10? †††

3. What is something you could do each day (or each week) that would move you towards greater satisfaction? †

4. Write down your answer to step three and then ask your coach or a success partner to hold you accountable to taking action.

5. Watch how the power of awareness and accountability moves you toward what you want. †

Good luck!
