|How did you get into coaching?
I wanted to educate people on the health of body, mind, and spirit.
I have been a Recruiter/HeadHunter since 1997. We opened our own executive search firm in 2003. During our staffing assessments and employment assessments we identified other needs that our clients and candidates had that we could help with. Then we started to service the needs and it has worked out wonderfully.
I began by gaining my Master's in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University, but when I graduated I realized that my personal interests are in helping others achieve total body wellness, instead of just mental health. After I started working at Life University (founded as a chiropractic college), I realized that I wanted my personal health interests to become my professional health interests, so I applied for the position I currently hold as a wellness coach.
I began working in the field of social services in the early to mid 90's and was certified in human services specializing in addiction & mental health and life skills coaching. I have always loved working with people and found this was one of the best areas i can apply myself and make a difference in the lives of others.
Started out by answering a small online ad for a work-from-home business. This developed into an amazing journey of self-discovery, where I realised my strengths lay in hekping others to achieve their goals.
Year 2000, with my entertaiment group Jambalaya, I met Cindy Hanson in the US. She introduced me to coaching. Later that year - I checked out coaching in Sweden but found nothing really interesting - and dropped it.
In 2004 I was introduced to a CTI introduction in Stockholm. It changed my life in only THREE days. The way we look at change, development - and management.
I worked as an intern with a practical philosopher, and was enthused by the Socratic Dialogues I witnessed.
I began coaching when I began changing my life. People could see the changes I made in my attitude, physical appearance, and improved zest for life.
Its a way of giving back by making an impact on the lives of most influential person in the world- the coach
As head of education at an international convention organisation (where I was employed for 16 years) and conducting marketing research workshops for our clients, I felt the need for training myself. I attended the intense 'Training and Coaching with Heart & Soul' course in The Netherlands and continued working at the same time. After graduation I set up my own company Soul at Work to guide those that also wanted to make career and life changes like myself.
By request from those seeking my opinion.
I was a shrink for many years and got tired of describing the water to people while they drown and calling that success
Simple. I got into this whole thing through having a need for change myself, through investigating the direction I wanted my life to take and eventually through training to get me to the point where I could start to be who I really feel I should be.
I am a born teacher, a good listener and love to ask questions and have been doing coaching most of my life, just never thought to put a name to it.
Coaching requires special skills and expertise. Coaches can be formally trained in coaching programs. Generally, they come with years of life experience in roles and life situations similar to those of their clients.
When I began doing my energy healing sessions and later intuitive readings, I began channelling information to help my client. I also found myself sending my clients home with "homework" to help them improve their life. The truth is that no one can change your life, but you. You must do the work, but getting help from a Coach could become the essential ingredient for success.
