WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a relationship centered on helping people discover their potential and assisting them in their goals. A coach helps the person identify the challenges and pitfalls that can pull them off course and encourages the person to develop their own solutions for success. This process is accomplished by the person’s own motivation for transformation as well as the built-in accountability of the coaching relationship. By providing a support structure, coaching aims to empower people to keep moving forward with their goals.
COACHING VS. COUNSELING
Counseling focuses on a person’s emotional and psychological state and looks at their past to help them become whole. Coaching on the other hand, focuses on a person’s present challenges and equips them to take action to meet their future goals.
"Coaching is practicing the disciplines of believing in people in order to empower them to change." -- Tony Stoltzfus

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM COACHING
• Unlocking one's potential
• Built-in Accountability
"I felt stuck in my own negativity, spending too much time on what I didn't accomplish. Coaching helped me focus on qualities and strengths that I didn't realize I had, giving me the courage to take on things I wouldn't have dreamed of doing. Now I have a more positive outlook on life."
