“The Solution to the Coachee’s Issue Lies Within the Coachee

“A good coach is someone who is an expert at helping others create positive change in their lives. For some clients, the positive change they most want may be focused on personal goals such as relationships, time management, work-life balance, stress reduction, simplification, health, etc., but other clients may be more interested in professional or business goals such as leadership, getting a promotion, starting a business, etc. ” – Robert Pagliarini

“Professionally trained in core coaching competencies and coaching ethics, coaches partner with clients to identify important goals and priorities, strategize about how to reach them, and overcome obstacles that crop up along the way.” – LifeForming Leadership Coaching
