What does coaching involve?

Coaching with Dr. B has four parts: assessment, goal setting, learning, implementation.

First we figure out what you need to improve your performance. I ask you questions about the performance situation you are facing: what is happening at the moment? what you would like to happen? I give you a brief self-diagnostic inventory to help clarify where you’re at and what you need. You are also assessing me: am I understanding you? do I offer something that sounds like it might help you? If it looks like we are the right “fit” then we agree to work together. I will give you an overview of what the coaching process will entail.

Goal setting:
We look at what you want to achieve and set realistic, achievable goals. These goals are usually connected with a certain time frame or event (an upcoming test or performance).

You are going to learn…

Usually, when a person’s performance is not where they would like it to be, they have non-productive habits that are getting in the way. I teach you to become more aware of these negative habits and then to develop productive, success-building ones by giving you the nine essential tools in my model. There are three tools for being calm, three for remaining confident, and three for staying focused. All nine are easy to learn and to use.

You start putting your awareness and the tools to work. You practice using the tools. Through practice they become second nature and you become more calm, confident and focused.. What seemed like a stuck situation starts to change. We conduct assessments periodically to keep close tabs on how you are doing.
