You are here right now because you are committed to becoming your best and making a difference in your world. You know, or at least suspect, there is a unique and meaningful contribution you were meant to make in the world. The mundane tasks of life are getting in the way. You are bogged down in the daily details and dramas that come with being a leader; feeling all alone and stuck under the weight of too many responsibilities which always stretch the limits of your time and energy. There never seems to be enough time to make progress toward your most cherished goals. Most women in leadership feel uncomfortable asking for help or input on their situation for fear of being seen as incompetent compared to their male co-workers. This is where coaching can help.
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein
How I help
“I finally feel like I have someone on my side!”
Coaching for women in all forms of leadership
Susan Scott coaching is a professional, certified coaching solution for women who are ready to move beyond the roles and expectations others have put on them and start living as their real self so they can make a meaningful contribution. Women like you who know their real self has been set aside for years in order to fill the needs of others. Family, spouse, boss, church leaders and even friends all put expectations on us about who we should be so we fit into their comfort zones. Over time those roles become like masks we wear, playing a character that does not represent all of who we are or allows us to use our gifts.
Coaching can help you reconnect with your self and rediscover your values, dreams and vision. Through my unique coaching model I can help you uncover the real you so you can live as the best you.
What is a coach, exactly? How does coaching help?
Professional, certified, coaches come alongside growth orientated women in leadership to share their skills, support, and mentoring, bringing specific tools and experience to help you build a bridge from where you are to where you want to be. Coaches don’t tell you what to do, you already have the answers. Coaches help you discover those answers and more importantly, help you implement solutions toward the life you want to experience, in a way that works for your unique situation. Coaches are skilled in helping you explore the issues you want to change by facilitating your work to process your situations, opportunities, obstacles and responses. Although we work in areas of psychology, coaches are not counselors. We don’t fix broken people, we facilitate the growth of people with above average potential.
How does coaching differ from therapy?
A coach is more like a personal trainer than a therapist or counselor. Therapy helps people overcome difficult past experiences, work through trauma, grief, mental health issues, and more.
- Coaches work with people who are in a healthy, stable situations and who are ready to look ahead, not behind.
- Coaching is about forward growth, intentionally designing the life you want to live and reaching your highest potential.
- A coach and client are equals, working in partnership, sharing their strengths and creating a relationship focused exclusively around helping the client succeed.
What is the difference between a coach and a consultant?
Coaches are experts in personal development, not in your specific business. A consultant has specialized knowledge you may not have around specific areas of your industry, marketing, conflict resolution, employee development or business in general. Coaches are a partner, helping to facilitate your growth as a leader. Coaches don’t tell you what to do, they lead you to discovering the answers already within you. Consultants are experts who can advise you on what to do in specific areas of your organization’s needs
What is the proof coaching works? Why can’t I do it myself?
