What is Coaching?
Coaching is an emerging profession that began about 25 years ago, first in executive leadership, followed by life coaching. Coaching for health and wellness started about ten years ago. Coaching has its roots in applied behavioral science and adult development, and more recently has embraced positive psychology.
Behavioral scientists have shown that one-on-one coaching is among the most effective approaches to helping people make and sustain improvements in their lives.
The relationship between a coach and client offers a profound level of support, guidance, and encouragement to making changes, without being judgmental. A coach enables change by focusing on a clients stated needs, values, vision, and goals and helping to bring out his/her personal best.
Our Style of Coaching
Today, new coaching specialties have emerged that address a variety of areas including leadership, work/life balance, relationships, and health, fitness, and wellness.
How Coaching Works

Through thoughtful assessment and inquiry, collaborative problem-solving and goal-setting, and safe, open, and honest dialogue, coaches help their clients become clearer on where they are, where they want to go, and how to get there.
Clients feel accountable to themselves and their coaches. They make and honor their commitments to reaching their goals, accomplishing more than they believed possible when they began.
Coaches provide instruction and mentoring to their clients, and help them set goals, define an action plan, and navigate the path until they reach their goals. Coaches facilitate learning and help clients put the learning into action.
Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your life. An empowered life requires focus, intent and commitment –just like staying in shape. Coaching helps you think about what you really want, and identify what is getting in your way. A Coach will give you permission and even encourage you to dream and then help you gain the confidence to make those dreams a reality.
What Is a Coaching Group?
The Inspire Many Coaching Groups are coach-led conference calls that our Advanced and Master level clients join 2 times a month. In these groups, you will meet with other women like you who are working on a specific area of their life. Professionally trained Coach Cass then uses the right questions and exercises to guide you through a process to make real improvements in your life. She will help you uncover what might be holding you back and hold you accountable to move forward. Your group is a safe and supportive environment to give you new perspectives, ideas, and courage to identify your passion, strengths, and priorities.
While psychologists and therapists help clients understand how the past is influencing the present, coaches focus on the present and help the client move towards the future. Coaches do not make diagnoses and may recommend that clients seek a psychologist or therapist for treatment, if appropriate.
A coach tweaks raw talent.

What Clients Think
Clients think that having a coach can help them move to a new place in their lives, and help them make changes happen. Having a coach is particularly powerful when a client has decided to fully commit to making significant changes in one or more areas of his/her life. Clients know that coaches help them reach goals they cant get to alone.
