And for those who enjoy reading…Here’s some words on The Inside Start Coaching Approach

Coaching frees up tremendous amounts of misdirected and wasted energy that’s bound up in well intentioned but misguided ways of relating to yourself, your health, time, choices, the environment you make and keep, as well as your relationships to employees, and people in all areas of life.

Consider you simply cannot affect a relationship in one part of your life without it rippling to the others. You’re one person with one life, not a life and a business.

Coaching begins by clarifying the outcomes you’re looking to achieve and setting a time frame for the coaching engagement to get you there. The first and greatest leverage for change is in with working with your mindset. This includes the observation of HOW you think, more than WHAT you’re thinking. As you confront and shift your mindset, you'll be working on clarifying where you want to go with strategic planning and implementing new self and time management practices. Simple not necessarily easy. This will create space to allow you to step back from your current way of relating to your business or position to see the big picture. 

Then it’s about setting up and developing the practice of focusing continually on what it is you want to create, while always staying connected to WHY this is both personally and professionally meaningful.

Lastly, and in perpetuity it’s about taking action, taking action, oh did I mention - taking action!? Do you know anyone who has big aspirations, but when it comes to the regular and consistent action required to make it happen, they’ve got an excuse or reason for not following through? Well that’s often what is confronted and overcome through the coaching process, the partnered accountability that paves the way to one of the greatest gifts of healthy self-discipline, self-accountability.
Mindset change lasts when healthy habits are built from clear values and successively applied intent, focus and action.

There are no magic pills. The magic is in continually choosing what to focus on, knowing why it’s personally meaningful, taking action just outside your comfort zone.

The coaching process will positively interrupt what's happening in your communication with others and yourself, and relieve you from the false burden of having to know what's right. Most owners discover that what they think is happening or at cause for their own or employee challenges is quite different from the actual cause. When you can let go of assumptions, you can then begin to relate more transparently.

Inside Start’s goal is the same for every client: Clarify your mindset and develop your thinking to access your deeper innate intelligence and resources and put that together with a system for strategic ongoing planning and action. The coaching will teach you how to become a coach to yourself, employees, and give you the tools and support to develop the managerial and leadership qualities that your people need from you to succeed. From this place, the right tools and systems become obvious as your ability to prioritize will be clear and true to your goals.

Another result of the coaching is the freeing up of energy through rebuilding habits and daily actions that become your personal discipline, as well as unlocking your innate ability to connect with people around differences, and speak open and honestly about shared conflicts to be able to work towards common goals.

Here is a list of some initial common coaching returns:

  • End overwhelm, distraction and destructive habits - replacing them with habits in alignment with your goals and aspirations.

  • The ability to delegate and let go of holding it all together.

  • Get clarity on your personal purpose and legacy, which makes prioritization second nature.

  • Partnership in developing self-accountability - one of many skills no one learned in school.

  • Stop fighting problems at the symptom level. Slow down, back up and look at your challenges from a bigger more inclusive perspective.

  • Transformation of limiting beliefs to get access to more innate strength and energy, and transform your inner critic into an inner alliance.

  • Accept and strengthen your individual style of leading.

  • Change and let go of patterns where you hold employees back. *It’s just true for all leaders.

  • See and experience your life as one thing that’s in constant motion and doesn’t need to be in the elusive, 'state of balance.'

  • Increased understanding of your own psychology, and the stuck patterns that have kept you circling the wagons. The ability to help others do the same as you naturally develop as a coach/mentoring approach in your organization.

  • Clarify expectations with new ways of communication, and simple systems that act as self motivators. Learn to master how you use language for yourself and with others.

  • Help individuals access their innate intelligence in group settings with transparent and authentic communication.

  • The ability to get out of the way and make the company environment a place where people love showing up.

  • Increased efficiency, workflow and output of operations.
