Have the Coaching Experience
What is the Confident Robot approach to coaching? Is this a science class? Am I getting lessons on being a better robot?
No. You can learn these things from a book. Coaching is much more. Simply put, coaching is a collaborative process where we work together to help you get the most out of life. Our aim is to reduce tension, move you towards your goals, and create happiness. Check out the section below to learn more, but know it can be difficult to really “get it” by reading a short description. To understand the power of coaching, you need to have the experience.
I offer a free, one-hour session so you can see for yourself. This session will not be a sales call, but will be all about you from the first minute to the last. To actually experience what coaching can do for you is far more effective than any pitch about features and benefits. I love connecting with others and showing people what this is all about. Contact me and we will find a time to connect.
What Is Coaching Like?
We start by looking at what you want to change in your life. What’s not working for you right now? What is working? Where are the points of tension? Where do you feel stuck? What do you really want? You might not know the answers to these questions. That’s normal. We take a relaxed approach and dig around a little bit. We work together, one devoted hour at a time, to help you make the changes you are looking for. Some people want to tone down the mental chatter and learn to relax, others are looking to turn up the energy to reach goals, some both.
To better understand how coaching works, consider that humans are social animals. We are wired-up to grow, thrive, develop, and solve our problems through interacting with others. The magic of coaching is in the back and forth that occurs between two people. Coaching feels like talking things out and working through issues, but it is much more than just chit-chatting with a friend about your dreams and problems. There is a process, and there are many tools that we will use along the way.
This process begins by looking at what you want and what is holding you back from having it. Though your challenges are unique, there are many patterns within human nature that make modern life difficult. Likewise, there are many tried and true tools to help us break free from these patterns. My perspective is informed by evolutionary psychology, eastern philosophy, mindfulness, stoicism, and Acceptance and Commitment Coaching. We will use tools and strategies from these and other disciplines.
Though coaching is wide-ranging, it is not therapy and is not a substitute for therapy. It is not medical in nature, is not intended to diagnose or treat any disorder, and is not about healing past traumas. Coaching starts with the present and looks towards the future. The Confident Robot approach is about looking at universals of human nature and the common pitfalls these create, and then applying these insights to the challenges you face. This perspective will help you see your hangups and roadblocks in a new light and will provide you with a path forward to get you where you want to go.
Coaching is a collaborative process where we will strategize together to help you:
• Clarify your thoughts and priorities
• Set and achieve your goals
• Build motivation
• Navigate difficult thoughts and emotions
• Overcome obstacles
• See other perspectives and your blind spots
• Be accountable to your action plans.
Below are some coaching areas in which I have experience:
Though this list covers the various areas in which I have worked, our area of focus need not be limited to the above. Many of the tools and principles are universal and can be used with any goal or issue that might be on your mind.
Coaching sessions are one-hour-long and offered over the phone or Zoom for maximum reach and convenience.
Schedule Your Free Session
A great next step is to schedule your introductory phone call. This will allow us to get to know each other a little bit and see if we are a good fit. In the process, you will get the coaching experience and see what this is all about. This no-pressure, introductory session is free with no hard sell at the end.
