All coaching begins with a discussion, during which your goals are determined and whether you and Lee are a good match. If you want to move forward, the discussion revolves around how often to connect per month. The sessions are by telephone in most cases.
From there, you will be on a journey where you are the main designer, driver and engine of the process. As the coach, Lee will be there to ask the right questions to help you navigate to your goals, encourage, support, lend other perspectives, be an empowerment partner and see you to the finish line, whatever that is for you.
Coaching is a great addition to anyone’s life when clarity, support and direction are desired.
If you’re curious about what a coach can do for you, e-mail Lee to schedule a complimentary discovery session. It is a perfect way to understand what coaching is and if you are a good match for each other.
The most common misconception about coaching is that it is “counseling”. Coaching is not psychotherapy. It does not delve into the past as much as it pulls you to the present, promotes inspired action and takes one into self empowerment. If you want to research a little more about coaching, Wikipedia has a great explanation.
"My husband and I started a full-time photography business eight years ago and as we were getting it going we found we have some very different ideas about how to run a business based on our two very different backgrounds in business. We also found that we were talking business with each other 24/7. We hired Lee Beaven to coach us once a week during our weekly planning meetings.
Lee not only helped guide us into more effective (non-emotional) communication so that we could move forward, she also helped us compartmentalize our time for better efficiency and to make sure we had personal time together and separately.
She always kept the tone upbeat and positive, while making sure we each got our time to present ideas. The ideas she helped us put in place at the beginning are still serving us well, and we have included her many times in our annual planning meetings to help us organize our thoughts into a workable plan.
We highly recommend Lee Beaven as a coach for new business owners, and any that find themselves at a stall, or getting ready to move to a new level. We are at that point again and will definitely call on her for a bit of coaching as we redefine one line of our business."
