Where does the time go?

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Do you ever end the work day and, in a befuddled sort of way, ask yourself where your time went? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. One of the biggest challenges to creating wellbeing in our work and in our lives is our habit of letting time slip away without really knowing where it is being spent. The old saying is true: “The more you do of what you are doing, the more you’ll get of what you are getting”.

Think about this: everything you do, all day long, either will help you move toward your goal or will hinder you from reaching your goal. If you want better results, you’ve got to change the way you are using your time. The way to move closer to balancing work and life is to analyze your choices about what you are using your time for.

Getting the Results You Need

“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

– T.S. Elliott


You want to make changes and reach your true potential, both on and off the job. You are ready to zoom forward. You know that you want to make the investment of time and money into your own professional development.  This post is the second in a series designed to help you find and hire the perfect professional coach.

Why invest in a professional coach? According to a recent study by Manchester, Inc., executives who received coaching services realized a sixfold ROI (return on investment).  Wow!  Imagine achieving as much in a single day as you did in the previous week.

The most specific improvements were in the areas of:

  • Working relationships up 77%
  • Teamwork up 67%
  • Productivity up 53%

These results speak for themselves.  Working with a professional coach can truly give you the boost you need to achieve the goals you’ve always dreamed of, both inside and outside of the office. Coaching isn’t for people who have hit “rock bottom”.  I have some people who seek my coaching services who are feeling overwhelmed, but in general, individuals who want to improve are the best and the brightest.  They want strategies to help their inner brilliance shine throughCoaching provides customized professional development and heightened personal awareness that no other method can offer.

But how do you ensure that you are making a wise investment and hiring the very best coach who has your best interest at the heart of the engagement?

Stay tuned to this series of posts to help you get the information that you need to find the perfect coach.  Can’t wait for the next post? Buy the book Awakening the Workplace and turn to page 109 to read more about finding the perfect coach.

Revving Your Engine to Reach Your Goals

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” ~Lao Tzu~

You know that you’re ready for change. You want it! You need it! You are revving your engines to move full-speed ahead. But… you aren’t quite sure how to determine your destination, map out your journey, and keep the gas flowing in your engines to get you where you want to go. So you just putter along. Or, like a car with a flat tire, you get stuck on the side of the road.
I have some great news to share! You can turn to a professional coach (like me), to help you get the clarity and confidence that you need to move forward.

A professional coach is a personal cheerleader and project manager all rolled into one. When you arrive at their office, they will help you determine what you want to achieve, map out a personal path to success, and then cheer you all the way across the finish line.

You are not alone!
You have support!
Your coach believes that you can do it and helps you make it happen!

Hiring a coach is an important investment in your personal and professional growth. But how do you ensure that you are making a wise investment and hiring the very best coach who has your best interest at the heart of the engagement?

Stay tuned to this series of posts to help you get the information that you need to find the perfect coach.
