WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a unique solution to the age-old challenge of how to make positive change in your life. While therapy is focused on the past and insightful consideration of past events, coaching is focused on forward thinking and taking action to achieve new, incremental, professional goals.
My clients may include college seniors starting out in the professional world, those re-entering the workplace, mid-career changers, those developing their managerial skills at work, and small business owners.
In any client relationship, whether organizational or individual, you and I will work together to determine your needs and the objectives that are important to you.
In individual coaching, we will meet on a regular basis to work incrementally on your goals. Organizational work is tailored to predetermined objectives and may include a combination of workshops, coaching, and meetings.
I tailor coaching to meet your needs, but often my consulting follows these patterns:
Individual coaching is usually established for a three-month period, to initiate incremental change. Behavior change takes time!
Career clients making major shifts start with six to eight sessions, to carefully examine personal preferences, values, and goals. Often I work with them further, to provide guidance and support.
Management coaching clients often meet with me over a long period, as trust is established, increasing self-confidence and facilitating steady growth. I have worked with some clients for years. Others leave and then re-contact me, when they have new goals.
Organizational work is based on the goals of the client manager or office. I gear timelines to the culture, leaders, and objectives of the organization.
“Cori has been of inestimable value to me as a career strategist and management coach. She has the gift of encouragement, but she also keeps driving toward the goal at hand. Cori's advice made all the difference for me during two recent job searches and in my ability to get a fast, confident start. I like that she integrates the Myers-Briggs profile as a non-threatening tool for self-discovery and behavior change. Above all, Cori sizes up specific needs quickly and always has the perfect next step in mind. For all these reasons, I am continuing to work with Cori as a management coach, now that I am in a new job with immediate and high expectations.”
