Personal Coaching

Get personalized help to move forward

You are capable of greatness. In fact, it’s already within you. Sometimes all you need is a little push, or some personal guidance from someone who can see in you what you don’t yet see yourself. Sometimes you just need someone who can see your life from an outside perspective, and who can connect you to the principles that can help you find the power, the purpose, and the path you’re looking for.

In physics, an object in motion tends to stay in that motion until moved upon by an outside force. In life we tend to stay in the same motion until moved upon by an outside force. As your personal coach, I am that outside force.

I’ll personally introduce you to the principles and practices of Life Engineering. I’ll help you discover who you are, see your potential, and find your purpose. Together we’ll chart a course that allows you to walk tall, feel confident, and go where you were meant to go.

As your personal coach, I become the outside force that will change the trajectory of your life.

Answers:

Where am I going in life?

Set your sights on the future, leave the past behind

Sometimes we get stuck simply because we aren’t sure what we should do next or where we should be going in life. And when you’re uncertain about your destination or direction, the tendency is to just stay where you are. In this session I’ll ask you a set of questions that will unearth where your passions are and help shed some light on where you should be going. Because knowing where you’re going is critical to getting somewhere worth getting to. An educated outside perspective is often all that you need to catch a glimpse of the future that lies in store for you. You’ll come away with a new sense of purpose and a prioritized list of things you want to accomplish.

Answers:

Am I going the right way and doing the right thing?

Correct and refine your course until you can’t wait to wake up in the morning.

The reality is that sometimes our course changes. Sometimes the circumstances of our life change, and it requires us to change of course. Sometimes we think we need to change course, but in reality we just need to stick to our guns and keep showing up until we make it happen. How do you know if the course you’re on is still the right one? In this session we’ll go through a set of questions that will help you assess whether or not you should change course, or stay the course, or how to revise the course so you get back into alignment and experience the Meaning (Me), Impact (Co), and Value (Va) when it all signs up. Because life is simply an ongoing process of course correction.

Answers:

How am I going to get there?

Build a go-forward strategy that keeps you moving forward

It’s been said that if we fail to plan, then we plan to fail. Having a solid plan, or at least a move-forward strategy is critical to gaining (and sustaining) momentum. But often we don’t have enough visibility to make a plan, and need some outside help. Sometimes we just could use an outside assessment of our plan before we invest and take the risk of executing it. Sometimes we don’t know enough to have a plan, in which case we just need to settle for getting visibility into some of the next steps so that we can keep moving until the plan becomes clear. In this session we’ll make sure you have a solid go-forward strategy with some simple, straightforward, and easily executed next-steps. Because removing the ambiguity on the way forward is the surest way to start moving forward.

Answers:

What’s holding me back?

And what do I need to reach my objective?

Space is all about having what you need to move forward. Sometimes we get held back because we don’t have what we need, and sometimes we don’t even know what it is, or when we do, how to go get it. In this session we’ll look deeply at your objective (Ob) and your plan (Pl) and we’ll figure out what is holding you back or what you need to move forward. We’ll also create an action strategy about how to go acquire those things, because sometimes they’re a little outside our reach, and require a bit of influence or salesmanship.

Answers:

Who am I and what am I capable of?

A foundational and transformative journey of self-discovery.

This is about knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and believing in yourself. It’s about knowing you’re capable of, and worth, more… much more.

You are stronger than you know, and more capable than you realize. In this session I’ll interview you and help you unearth your strengths and find your magic superpowers. We’ll help you craft a narrative about who you are that will inspire you and pull you forward, and that will act as a foundation upon which you can build your future. If you want to change your life, start by changing how you see yourself.

Answers:

What’s in this for me, and is it worth it?

Lay a foundation for your future.

We all have a sense of whether we’re moving forward professionally and personally. And whatever our Objective (Ob) is in life, if we’re going to be serious about success, then we need to be Investing (In) in ourselves, and partially that’s through growth. This is all about learning and growing and becoming more capable. In this session we’ll go over your Objectives (Ob), your Plan (Pl), and your Identity (Id) and put a personal growth plan in place that will make sure that you’re capable of achieving the things you desire out of your future. We’ll make sure that growth plan includes Investment (In), Score (Sc), and leverages Relationships (Re) and Leadership (Le) so that you have the foundation you need to do what the world is waiting for you to do.

Answers:

What’s in this for me, and is it worth it?

Become emotionally enriched by the journey you’re on.

Meaning is a complicated equation, it involves Objective (Ob), Alignment (Al), Identity (Id), Contribution (Co), Investment (In), Relationships (Re), Value (Va), and Growth (Gr). Finding meaning in life is crucial, but complicated. In this session we’ll go through a list of questions to identify what it is that you find meaningful, and then we’ll make sure you’re on a path that makes you excited to get up in the morning, and that makes you feel good when you go to bed at night. Finding meaning in life is one of the great joys of someone who is on the journey, and pursuing a path that matters. Let’s find your path, script your journey, and set you on your way.

Answers:

What’s in this for me, and is it worth it?

Making sure you’re adequately rewarded for your efforts.

We all find value in certain things, and value comes in all sorts of ways. But whenever we feel there’s a lack of equity in the exchange of value… what we get from our work, our time, our effort, our Investment (In), then we become disengaged. No, it’s not all about us, and life isn’t all about what we get from it, but it’s enough about it that we should be deliberate about identifying what we value and knowing how to get that value. In the session we’ll do just that. We’ll identify what it is you want (or are expecting) for your contribution, we’ll assess that against a larger picture, and we’ll help you put a Plan (Pl) in place that will set you on the right path to get the value you seek.

Answers:

Am I making a difference?

Learn to make a difference, and see it too.

We have an innate need to know that we’re making a difference… that our work, or our efforts, or our lives matter. Usually when we feel this way it isn’t that we aren’t making a difference, but that we’ve lost sight of what that difference is. Sometimes (especially during life transitions) we don’t know how to keep score (Sc) of that difference. In this session we’ll look deeply into the difference you’re making, or not making, and we’ll figure out what to do about it. Most importantly we’ll discover the difference you want to make, and can then help Align (Al) yourself through changing your Plan (Pl), changing your Objective (Ob), analyzing your Meaning (Me), or learning more about your Identity (Id).

Answers:

How do I know if it’s working?

Measure your performance and be accountable.

We tend to keep score of lots of things that don’t really matter that much… our weight, our height, our bank account, our social likes or friends or followers. But we often struggle to keep score of what matters most in our lives, and that means we miss out on a huge means of motivation. In this session we’ll create a custom scorecard just for you and based off your life Objective (Ob), your Plan (Pl), Growth (Gr), Meaning (Me), Investment (In) and the things you Value (Va). We’ll turn “Score” into a primary motivator that will pull you forward in life and help you identify early when you might be in a stall.

Answers:

What will keep me going when the going gets tough?

Because people in motion tend to stay in motion.

People in motion tend to stay in motion, while people at rest tend to stay at rest. But momentum can work both ways. You can develop momentum toward an undesired destination that then becomes inertia (something you have to overcome) to course correct. In this session we’ll make sure your Plan (Pl), Growth (Gr), Investment (In), Environment (En), Identity (Id) and Relationships (Re) are creating the kind of momentum that will lead you to your objective (Ob), and not away from it. Because building momentum in life is one of the most fundamental characteristics of those who succeed.

Answers:

What do I have to lose?

Have something to lose by putting something on the line.

Have you ever noticed that we’re reluctant to take too bold a step in a direction that scares us? Because once you do, you’re invested. And once you’re invested, you risk losing something if you don’t succeed. And that’s exactly why you need to invest in the Objectives (Ob), Relationships (Re), Identity (Id), and Plan (Pl) that you’ve put in place. In this session we’ll identify the things that matter to you and put a personal plan in place on how you can invest in… well, whatever it is, so that you can feel the inevitable tug of having some skin in the game. Until you put some skin in the game, you’re not in the game. And you can never win a game you’re not a part of. So get off the sidelines and get in the game.

Answers:

Where can I turn for help?

Access someone who can help you get unstuck.

Life is complicated, and any Objective (Ob) you’ve set that’s worth pursuing is going to be complicated to. And every path we take down some new road is going to be fraught with complications and problems that others who have gone before you have likely already solved. In this session we’ll figure out where you’re going and identify what type of Leadership (Le), mentor or guide is right for you. Then we’ll put a plan in place to go out and find and engage that person, so that you can have someone to go to when the going gets rough, and who can help you navigate the treacherous terrain that lies in every path worth pursuing.

Answers:

Do I have to do this alone?

Do things you care about with people you care about.

Sometimes the people in our lives pull us forward. Sometimes they hold us back. Knowing how to deal with them is critical to navigating our path and reaching our Objective (Ob). What’s more, learning to know how to involve people we care about in the work we care about is one of the best ways we can ensure our success as we travel our own personal path. In this session we’ll look at the relationships in your life. We’ll figure out which ones are pulling you forward or holding you back, and we’ll create a plan on how to deal with each one. We’ll make sure that plan includes a way to capitalize on the relationships that matter most to you so that they are part of your journey and can support you and pull you forward when you stall, and up when you fall.

Answers:

How do I insulate myself against stalls?

Architect an environment that sustains and propels you.

Our environment creates a strong gravitational pull on us. It’s full of emotional and psychological triggers that act as behavioral nudges. These can either work for us, or they can work against us. Part of becoming successful is learning how to take control of your environment, architecting it for your own ends, and imbuing it with other elements to help you stay focused on your objective, remember who you are and what you’re capable of, track progress, and much more. In this session we’ll take a hard look at the environments you spend time in. We’ll look at the triggers and nudges they’re having on you and we’ll put in place a plan to take control of those environments and change them in ways that pull you forward, instead of holding you back.

Answers:

When is enough enough?

Find restoration and perspective through balance and renewal.

Learning how to find balance in life is critical to maintaining our energy towards our mission. But it can be terribly complicated, especially in today’s hyper-busy mode of living. In this session we’ll talk about essentialism, and we’ll go through a series of questions that will help you identify what matters most. You’ll find permission (from yourself and sometimes from others) to let go of things that aren’t necessary so that you can focus more on the things that are. We’ll also talk about how to identify when drops in energy or engagement in life or your pursuits are simply the result of being over-invested, or burned out, and what to do about it when you are. This session will leave you feeling better about your way forward, because you’ll leave some things behind. Trust me, it’s worth it.
