What is Self-Management Coaching?

Self-management coaching and life coaching have a lot in common. Both can help you get clear, get moving, stay motivated, and create forward momentum.

Self-management coaching, as I’m defining it, goes a bit further and a lot broader. It digs beneath goal-setting action steps to help you identify, expose, and challenge the thoughts, beliefs, and emotional intelligence levels you bring to the table (maybe unconsciously). Once you better manage your inner world, you can face any life issue you want to tackle with greater confidence, mastery, and peace.

Self-management is about the whole self—body, soul, and spirit. Deficits in any one area affect the others, so as your self-management coach, I’ll encourage you to develop and maintain high personal standards in all the dimensions of life.

Coaching vs. Counseling

In a nutshell, counseling is about your history, facing old wounds, resolving past issues, and helping you heal. Coaching is about moving forward, starting where you are now and propelling you toward a brighter future.

We start with what is now, and we give you the skills and tools to change, even if you feel foggy, paralyzed, or simply unsure of what to do next.

How Does it Work?

Your brain fires differently, more creatively, when talking with an experienced coach. This exquisite synergy creates momentum and enthusiasm.

You’ll think bigger, develop a clear vision, and set goals that motivate you to get moving. You’ll develop new thinking skills that have a profound effect on your life, your health, and your relationships. You’ll get ongoing support and gentle accountability as you reach your self-imposed deadlines.

I’ll help you avoid getting distracted and derailed. And if you do hit a snag, I’ll help you get back on track quickly. You keep moving forward and get your confidence back. You can do this.
