• Our unique results-driven coaching model focuses on creating tangible results for our executive coaching clients

Results-Driven Coaching. ALWAYS.

Why is our coaching model so results-driven?

When I started working with Tony Robbins® in 1999, one of the simplest questions he asked had a profound impact on me. The question was, “What is your outcome?” and/or “What is the specific result you want to create?” These 2 questions drive my entire coaching model.

If someone is going to spend their precious time, energy and money with me, I am very cognizant of the fact that I need to help them create results: quick, fast and long term.

And while some like to talk about their problems and can find therapists to be a great fit for their situation, executive coaching fills an entirely different need. My clients want to either have something different or feel something different. Our focus is on achieving that change and creating tangible results.

How do we do that? Our unique 6-step, results-driven, coaching model has proven to be a very effective way of creating results that stick.

The traditional coaching model only has 5 steps but we added an additional step. Coaching is dramatically more effective when it includes the release of mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and financial obstacles from the past, using the groundbreaking tools of NLP, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis, NAC, Huna and Design Human Engineering.

Without the release of negative unresolved emotional issues, change is left to the client’s willpower, and in the end, that’s often not enough for long term change. A person can make themselves take a different action for a little while, but results don’t stay long term. How often do we see people lose weight only to gain it back, have money and then lose it, or get into a great relationship and self sabotage?

Our Inner World creates our Outer World. All learning, change and behavior happens at the unconscious level. When NLP, NAC and Time Line Therapy® are used in the coaching process, change and results happen instantly, effortlessly and with long term results.

Our Coaching Model .

Define where the client is now

The first step in building any coaching relationship is to have the understanding and awareness of where you are right now in life. Having a clear picture of what is working in your life and more importantly, what isn’t working is the first step towards change. Awareness of where you are in the present moment lays the foundation for where you will be going in the future. We use the DiSC Behavioral Assessment to better understand where clients are behaviorally and Values Driven templates to understand their emotional foundation. We offer a complimentary Success-Now Session to kick off the process.

Define where the client wants to be (set goals)?

Everyone comes to coaching from a desire to change something. Sometimes prospective clients know exactly what they want to achieve. Sometimes prospective clients tell me, “I’m not really sure what I am looking for but I just want more” or “I know what I don’t want, but not sure what I do…” For coaching to work, not only do you need a compelling goal in the future, it has to be congruent with what you also want to feel in the future. Every plane takes off with a specific destination defined, coaching is just the same.

Define the obstacles preventing success (anger, sadness, fear, guilt, limiting decisions)

This is the most critical step when picking a coach. We believe there are 4 main obstacles a person has to overcome: mental (limiting beliefs), emotional (feelings), physical (the body) and spiritual (faith and belief it can be done). It is up to the Coach to take feedback from the client and be able to define the complex way these obstacles have woven themselves together to prevent the client’s success. Be sure to get a seasoned coach who can see these patterns! This comes from experience!

Release the obstacles from the past

The mind learns by associating a new event with something it has already experienced in the past. It is critical to release past negative emotional issues so that the unconscious mind only has access to positive, emotional experiences. NLP, Time Line Therapy®, NAC and Hypnosis allow past negative emotional issues and gestalts to be released quickly and easily. Then, only more positive emotional meanings can be attached to new experiences. This minimizes the client’s resistance and accelerates change and results.

Develop New Strategies

Once the obstacles have been defined, once again, it is the coach’s experience that helps to find the right strategies to break up those old patterns and develop new ones. It is just like walking into a hardware store, there are a lot of tools, but the coach needs to be able to give you the right one for the job. Otherwise, you may end up using a screwdriver to put a nail in the wall —not very effective.

Lastly, hold the client accountable

Some people ask, “If I have the right tools and motivation, why would I need to be held accountable?” The easiest answer is that the brain is always programmed to take the path of least resistance. Accountability can also mean positive, empowering support to help anchor in the new habits. Just like a test grade of 97%, people can still look for what they got wrong before the focus on the 97% they got right. It is important to remind people of their success, progress and positive results!
