what if I don't know if I need help?

If you're asking this question, you already know the answer. You're ready to make a change in your life, but you aren't sure what the next step is. That's okay, and that's the first step: admitting that you're ready for change. 

You may need the help of someone you can trust to guide you toward success, and you may not end up needing more than a cheerleader to get you started. I'm here to help you figure that out. Schedule your free consultation and we'll spend 20 minutes talking about what you need and want more of in your life and how you can get it.

Is what we talk about confidential?

It's important to me that you know how I approach consulting and what my code of ethics is:

  • I will not knowingly misrepresent my knowledge or expertise either publicly or privately, and I will be transparent regarding my education, certifications, and other qualifications.
  • I will hold all discussions with my clients in the strictest confidence, except where doing so may cause harm to others.
  • I will not provide information or advice that I do not believe in or that I would not personally follow.
  • I will honor all agreements with my clients and others, including contracts, scheduling, and assigned tasks.
  • I will not knowingly take any monetary, professional or other advantage of any coach/client relationship.
  • I will conduct myself in accordance with this code of ethics whenever I am engaged in any coaching relationship or capacity.

What is expected of the consultant?

The Consultant will:

  • Listen, evaluate, and make suggestions that hopefully will enable the Client to gain insights and better self‐knowledge.
  • Focus on assisting with situational assessment, identifying options, and determining appropriate actions to help the Client navigate forward. Ultimately, it is the Client’s choice and responsibility to determine the right decisions.
  • Maintain confidentiality, keeping all conversations and information with the Client private unless it is unlawful. No personal ideas, information or thoughts expressed will be shared with anyone except with the express permission of the Client.
  • Provide the Client with a supportive atmosphere to attain the professional and personal growth they are striving for.
  • Help identify strategies for short term goal achievement and multi‐year development.
  • Identify with the Client the high‐leverage behaviors to focus on that will provide the most strategic benefit.

 

What is consulting like?

Personal and Professional Development Consulting can help you to meet the goals that you have for your
work and personal life. It only works, however, when you take the time to develop a solid relationship with your consultant.

As your consultant, it is my objective to motivate you and hold you accountable for achieving your goals. From an outside standpoint, a development consultant may be able to see areas of concern that you are not able to discern. In that sense, the process raises your awareness of a different way to handle your personal and professional development..

What is your consulting philosophy?

Personal and Professional Development Consulting is an ongoing relationship that facilitates the process of
personal and professional development between the me, the Consultant and you, the Client. Every consulting relationship is unique, as such, we agree to design the relationship together.

The purpose of this relationship is to develop a solutions‐focused approach with actionable steps to achieve your goals; to get results you have not been able to get alone. These personally identified goals may address specific personal projects and life balance, as well as job performance, preparation, and
satisfaction. 

Throughout the relationship, we will engage in direct and personal conversations, building a highly personalized approach tailored to you and your situation. Consulting utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivated coaching, other consulting techniques and appropriate processes. You should understand that success requires a collaborative, cocreative approach where I help facilitate change. It is your responsibility to enact or bring about the change.

What is expected of me, the client?

The Client will:

  • Attend sessions on time and come prepared with an open mind, honesty, and focus.
  • Start and finish each session on time, participating fully.
  • Give at least twenty‐four (24) hours’ notice of session rescheduling or cancellation.
  • Set and pursue meaningful goals as well as complete agreed upon tasks.
  • Take full responsibility for choices and decisions made before, during and after sessions.
  • Accept that consulting may involve feelings of discomfort and frustration and understand that such feelings come with effecting changes.
  • Communicate effectively with the Consultant about any questions or concerns as they come up as well as offer feedback for how the consulting process is working.
  • Work proactively between sessions, using and applying what is learned.
  • Stop tolerating what doesn’t serve their better interest and be willing to change their limiting beliefs and behaviors.
  • Be resourceful and solutions‐focused.
