Coaching FAQ

What is a Transition Coach?

A Transition Coach is someone who is qualified to support, encourage, challenge and motivate you to achieve your goals. A coach is a good active listener that can pick up from your voice what you are really thinking and will facilitate you to take actions to move yourself towards your goals. They will celebrate your successes, help you discover how to overcome obstacles, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and enable you to move forward at a far greater pace than you could achieve on your own, with the ultimate aim of you achieving your goals and discovering a much happier life.

How does Transition Coaching work?

Transition Coaching works because it focuses you on exactly what you want to achieve and helps you make a plan.  By using a Transition Coach you are able to define your goals and how to reach them with the aid of a coach who is 100% dedicated to you and your future. They will listen, encourage, support and motivate you. The Transition Coach is able to keep you focused and, through their experience and expertise, you will be able to identify options available to you, that you may not have ever considered.

What sorts of people have a Transition Coach?

There is no one type of person who uses coaching.  People who use coaching have the desire to change part of their life so they are happier and the realize they will stay focused and get there quicker with the support of a coach.

What happens during a coaching session?
Initial sessions will be focused on assessments and identifying what you want to change.  Together we will build a roadmap with small actionable steps to help you achieve your goals.  
During each session we will recap on the actions set and achieved from the last session and look at general progress and successes. We then explore where you are at the moment with that particular goal; what you have tried; what has worked and any obstacles you have come across along the way. We then explore all the possible options in achieving that goal, using lots of techniques to really extract options that you have never thought of before. Lastly and most importantly we look at what actions you want to set yourself from the list of options to continue working towards your goal.
How long are the coaching sessions?

Coaching sessions take approximately 50 minutes. These sessions can be weekly, twice a week or monthly, whatever suits your life and the speed at which you can take actions to achieve your goals.

How many coaching sessions will I need?

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For some people this may take as little as 6 sessions and for others it may take a year. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.

Where does the coaching take place?

In the majority of cases the coaching will take place over the phone or video call.  This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching into their busy lives. Other than the phone, you will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can totally focus on the conversation.

How much does it cost?

Coaching costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. Sessions prices are as low as $75 and last approx 50 minutes. This really is a very small price to pay for the life changing experience that you desire.

What will I have to do?

To get the best from Coaching, you need have a positive attitude towards the achievement of your goal. You need to be totally open, trusting and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions that you will set yourself at the end of each session. These actions are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realized. To help you with all of this, the coach provides boundless motivation, support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgmental environment.

What are the benefits of transition coaching?

The benefits of Transition Coaching are having someone that is solely dedicated to you and the achievement of your goals. They are non-judgmental, supportive, encouraging and motivating just when you need it. They keep you focused on where you want to be and moving forward in the right direction. They will enable you to get to where you want to be in life, much faster than you could on your own.

How is coaching different from counseling?

Coaching and counselling are similar in the sense that both counsellors and coaches ask the client questions, sometimes requiring a lot of soul-searching. Neither a counsellor nor a coach will give advice but they will listen to what you say and direct the conversation with further pertinent questions. However, whereas the typical counselling session will be dealing with emotions and issues in the past affecting the present, the coaching relationship is focused on the future and deals with optimizing the opportunities in your life for you to ultimately achieve greater happiness.

Sharon spoke to our Women’s luncheon at our Independent Insurance Agencies Conference in Chicago. Sharon got to meet some of the conference attendees at a function the night before and her story was so interesting we actually had 10 men attending the women’s luncheon. Sharon’s message of courage, perseverance and being true to yourself resonated with all the attendees. The comments I heard most frequently after her speech were “inspirational” “motivating”, “engaging” and “impressive”. I will definitely have Sharon speak at future events

Danielle Capilla

Sharon was the keynote speaker to our Rotary Youth Leadership Awards retreat. Her message of looking for mentors, working hard for what you want and knowing the value you bring to the world reached the entire audience, students and adults alike. Sharon was engaging and connected very well. After her speech multiple people personally thanked her for validating the importance of hard work and valuing yourself. We feel blessed to have had her share her story and her time with us
