As an exciting way to start the year, I am inviting people with disabilities to consider working with me as a coach. I can only accept two more coaching clients at this stage, though, so please reach out for a free 30-minute discovery call soon if you’re interested in finding out more.
Perhaps you may not have experienced coaching before. You may be uncertain of what coaching is and how it could benefit you. So, here’s a little more detail about the work I do.
I have worked with coaches in my own business several times in the past few years. I asked a coaching colleague to help me think through my future career options after being retrenched from my position as office administrator back in 2014. Being able to think through my options and how to best make use of the skills I had was incredibly powerful for me. More recently I employed a coach when I wanted to rethink the direction to take in my business, and specifically to update my website.
For many years I’ve used coaching techniques on projects I’ve been involved with. Two years ago I started building coaching into my business in a more formal way.
As a coach I have helped people see their challenges in a different way. I’ve coached clients on career decisions, and on navigating difficult conversations with colleagues and family members. I love the experience of helping people to consider new options and find solutions to problems. I’ve assisted clients to think through personal and work questions they have, start doing activities they’ve been avoiding, and to reach their goals.
While I am more than happy to work with people who do not have a disability, and have done so on numerous occasions, I am especially passionate about working with people with disabilities. I think one of my clients encapsulated the reason for this, saying that it helped because I am able to understand many of their disability-specific challenges that would need to be explained to a non-disabled coach. And there aren’t that many coaches with disabilities around.
If you have a disability, or know someone with a disability who may be facing a decision or wanting to explore new personal or professional goals, reach out to me and let’s see if I can be of service. The first step would be for us to have a conversation to see if we wish to work together, and if I am the right person to help you. And it would cost you nothing more than 30 minutes of your time.
