Who’s your coach?

“Coach” is a title I used to avoid.

I am not a fan of fads, and I worried that “coaching” was trendy. So, I’ve been tangling with the coach title since 1999 when someone told me that there was a name for what I was already doing.

“Life Coach”

Truth be told, I have been a coach since the early 80s, only we didn’t give it that title. We called it “sales trainer.”

I was lucky to work for This End Up Furniture Co., a business whose values matched mine. One of the core aspects I loved about TEU in the early days was the philosophy that we are all just human beings.  So,  rather than have a customer/salesperson relationship, why not have a human-to-human relationship?

What a concept!

I found that the title “coach” implies such a human-to-human relationship. One individual collaborating with another to realize success.

I have since collaborated with individuals, entrepreneurs, and companies who have a desire to grow, shift, and even dance toward their life vision.

I am immensely grateful and proud to be a part of this pioneering effort, which provides a gentle guide to usher you to your inner strengths and talents. Some call this your “inner guru,” others simply “finding yourself.”

I am proud to be such a guide.

am a coach.

Testimonials
Sales coaching with Lee was such an enlightening experience! She has such a way of putting people at ease and setting them up for success. The entire team in my store is committed to developing the skills which we had been taught from the beginning. Lee's visit really brought the concepts of "Customer Friendly Buying" to life, so that each of us would take away from it just what we needed to. As a result of Lee's coaching, I am committed to the coaching of the consultants in order to continue to reinforce the principles taught and coached. Lee truly met each person on my team at their level and challenged them to stretch and move out of their comfort zone...I already can see them developing some good habits, especially in the icebreaking, conversational, and staying connected phases. Lee is truly an inspiration. ~ Jim C., Store Manager, Storehouse Furniture, Northeast District
