Approach

Carol is fully present with you in every session. She can only be of service to you if she is listening to what you are saying in body, emotions, and language. The job of an ontological coach is to develop questions that will challenge you to observe yourself as you really are. This is what will lead to the transformation you desire.

Our goal is to enable you to be as big as you are… to realize your greatness. Effective coaching requires bold questioning and challenges that allow you to discover new ideas about yourself and how you live your life.  You may choose to use practices between sessions that lead you to new awareness. These are designed with Carol’s support during a coaching session. You may also choose to take specific actions; i.e. observe what sensations and emotions you feel and how they influence your thoughts and words, plan and have a specific type of conversation, follow a schedule you set for work on a topic, etc.

Coaching formats are flexible.You choose sessions in person or by phone or video conferencing. You can also choose the frequency of your sessions…some clients prefer a weekly meeting, while others opt for every other week.

Scheduled sessions are held in the highest priority…this is the best way to achieve our transformational goals. We understand that life happens, but we have found that when a person is regularly late for sessions or asks repeatedly to reschedule, that person is not ready for a transformation. We ask for at least 24-hour notice of changes and we reserve the right to charge for the missed session.

Guiding Beliefs

You were given gifts in this life and your purpose is to give them back to the Universe.You know them…they give you joy in living, those things that bring others to you. Sometimes we ignore these gifts and choose to fill our time doing or relating in ways that don’t use them. Coaching can get us back in touch with these gifts so we are using them at least 80% of the time in all our relationships in this Universe.

You have your answers within you. Personal Leadership Coaching is about asking questions that support you in finding a way of “being” in this world that is optimal to share your unique gifts.

Your way of being in your body affects who you are, what emotions you experience, and the things you say internally and to others. Working with all three components of who you are, transforms how you connect with the Universe. Your body contains the wisdom that can transform your life. Allowing your body to move you can make all the difference.
