Coaching is everywhere these days. In case this is your first toe dip into this pool - first of all, jump on in! The water's fine.
Here's a quick coaching 101:
Your coach helps you figure out what you want and how to make it happen. Your coach will brainstorm and role play with you, listen and provide honest, objective feedback and ideas. Your coach keeps everything you tell her in confidence, expects your best of you always, speaks the truth, holds you accountable, celebrates your successes, and challenges you to do more. Your coach is like your own private cheerleader-- based in the gritty reality of your life, always.
