Balance Life Mind & Well-Being Coaching aim is to help individuals attain goals:

One is to inspire and motivate; the other is to improve and correct. Our coaching will focus on empowering individuals to move forward in order to achieve goals. When we coach individuals to focus on goals we use measurable outcome of definitive steps taken toward that goal. Our coaching involves the use of our signature model called: “DREAM”, developed from a well-used goal model: “SMART” goals that has proven to help individuals see goals as more attainable. We instruct individuals on how to create concrete action plans or improve levels of productivity and performance in daily functioning.

Depending on what is being worked on, our coaching will encourage individuals to master, restructure or refine areas of life concerns that they may seem stuck in.

Following is an example of a coaching scenario while working with one of our clients:

Breanna held a position with a manufacturing plant for over 20-years. She always went above and beyond the call of duty, out-performing others on her team with the same qualifications and experience. She spoke with her supervisor Mike several times about her belief and desire to be promoted to a new position with more responsibility. Breanna was not feeling confident that she could actually truly manage other people, as she was always an introvert. Mike considered her promotion, but felt she would benefit from life coaching. Breanna began mentioning to certain workers about her plans, her work-ethics began to decrease, her production as well as team’s moral dropped.

Breanna supervisor Mike recommended to Breanna to call us. Our coaching process helped Breanna with an intense professional developmental process to empower her to develop self-confident skills. She also learned how to improve performance constructively. Breanna was coached on steps to identify specific, measurable, attractive, realistic goals in order to build confidence towards obtaining her dream of promotion. During the coaching process, we also developed insight on Breanna need to also acquire counseling to sort out some underlining issues and challenges in her personal life. Ultimately we helped Breanna obtain a successful Work/Life Balance outcome.
