What is coaching? "Masterful coaching involves helping people ... transform themselves, their communities, and their world. It involves impacting people’s visions and values as well as helping them reshape their way of being, thinking, and actions. It involves challenging and supporting people in achieving higher levels of performance while allowing them to bring out the best in themselves and those around them." — Robert Hargrove, Masterful Coaching

Is coaching the same as counseling? "Like therapy, coaching acknowledges the past, but more importantly, coaching is always about moving the client forward, from where they are presently, to where they want to be in the future. Contrary to therapy, coaches see opportunities to be developed, not problems to be fixed." - Huffington Post

Do I really need it or can I just find a few books, guides, Bible studies or a mentor? You have one life to live and you have a unique purpose- different than anyone else's.

How long does it last? Coaching packages range 3, 4 and 6 months. 4 and 6 months are the most popular given that as we dive into everything and changes are being made, there's so much to continue to uncover and process. In addition, the growth that is taking place creates great momentum and, many times, clients decide to extend their package as they realize there is even more they want to explore!

Do you have a coach? For sure! To tell you the power of having a coach and the difference in life between having one and not is close to impossible- you have to experience it to fully understand.

Do you offer group coaching? In the near future I will be rolling out some group coaching packages! Please email me at hello@flourishandco.com if you're interested and want to be among the first to know all the details.

I think this sounds fantastic but what if I'm not sure I can afford it? Remember that coaching is an investment in YOU. And, because it's a proactive approach, rather than reactive it in fact saves you money and time!

Just remember, you have one life to live, sweet friend... and, you need to live it well and steward it well- give yourself permission to do just that- for your sake and for the sake of those you do life with- you simply cannot love others well if you're empty!
