Are you ready to make a change? Be honest. Change takes commitment and challenges us to move outside our comfort zone. If you’re ready, coaching can make all the difference between getting what you want and facing another failed New Year’s resolution.
Living in Your Top 1% is about maximizing your potential. It’s about gaining clarity, believing in yourself, and turning your ideas into action. It’s about seeing opportunities when others see challenges and pursuing meaningful and heartfelt goals to bring you greater fulfillment. It’s not about comparing yourself to others. Living in Your Top 1% focuses on your top 1% rather than how society defines the top 1%. The difference seems small but the impact is huge. Everyone can enjoy “top 1%” moments regardless of title, status, education, or finances.
Coaching can help you move through a career transition, grow your business, start a new venture, brainstorm on your business proposal, manage your team more effectively, help your team navigate through priorities and goals, organize your finances, renew your motivation to start living a healthier lifestyle, feel more engaged in your life and career, become un-stuck, re-enter the work force after raising your children and much more. Coaching is an effective resource both for individuals and teams who want a trusted advisor.
Just as musicians practice their instruments and athletes train their bodies, we also need to train our minds to perform the way we want. By training our minds, our thoughts lead to consistent and focused actions that ultimately produce our desired results. This probably is not news to most people, but it is a fact we often overlook in our desire for quick results. And it’s where a coach can help you make progress.
We have endless resources to live a healthy lifestyle — motivational books, CD’s, talk shows, podcasts and newsletters. Yet, people continue to search for fulfillment and balance and are overly stressed, burned out or not connected in their daily lives. The process of living in your top 1% is a journey — and a successful program makes that experience exciting and incredibly fulfilling.
The bottom line is that living in your top 1% is a choice. You have to consciously choose to integrate work and all areas of your life to reach the next level.
Coaching is a powerful and effective process in helping you make progress. Some of the significant benefits include:
It’s no secret that consistency, motivation and determination bring results. Who better to encourage you to maintain your laser focus than a coach? In effect, your life coach makes sure you show up for practice and helps you design an inspiring and authentic game plan. Research shows that people who work with coaches for three months or longer accomplish 80% of their goals.
My coaching style assumes that only you know what you want, but we recognize that significant life changes take place one small step at a time. The power of small steps is one of the secrets to success. We’ll help motivate, encourage, and challenge you to keep taking those steps and be your biggest supporter during the process. Together we can create your blueprint for change, and then help you stay on track. The process starts by showing up and making yourself a priority.
Significant research has been done showing that coaching makes a positive change both to the individual and the company’s bottom line. A study in October 2007 by the Milken Institute, an independent economic think tank, on “An Unhealthy America: The Economic Burden of Chronic Disease” concludes that the cost of the seven most common chronic diseases could be dramatically decreased through more effective prevention (exercise, diet, nutrition, maintaining a healthy weight) and treatment. Specific benefits include:
The Finerman Living coaching framework is focused on helping to set and clarify goals that inspire you to move forward with an enhanced level of self-efficacy and determination. The conversations are based on methodologies and processes which include positive psychology, change theory, appreciative inquiry, motivational interviewing, and goal setting techniques.
Every person is unique and so is every coaching relationship. There is no one-size-fits all coaching model. Coaching conversations are either in person or over the phone and both are successful methods. The typical individual coaching engagement includes a 45 minute kick-off strategy session (where we discuss strengths, values, and the YOU INC. blueprint) followed by a coaching call every two weeks (depending on your schedule). The agenda is driven by the client and is most effective when the client is ready and committed to focus on personal growth. Anything is possible when you bring your mind and your heart together!
