Welcome to LifeCoachPower.com, the website for Alan Anthony Coaching. Whether you’ve arrived here intentionally or you’ve just stumbled upon us while browsing the web, why not have a look around? After all, coaching is about clarity, empowerment, and creating the life that you really want. What’s not to like about that? And, most coaching is done over the phone. So it doesn’t matter where you live, as long as you have a telephone, you can be coached!
One of my roles as your coach is to help you to identify and achieve your goals more quickly and efficiently, and to support you in aligning your goals and dreams with your beliefs and values, thus promoting a life of fulfillment, integrity, and happiness. “What did he say”? To put that simply, I help people get the results that they want out of life, both personally and professionally.
Many people are unaware of their purpose in life. Many of those who are aware are not fulfilling that purpose or are fulfilling it slowly and inefficiently. Coaching can help you not only to identify your life and business purpose, but will help you in aligning your life with that purpose and to achieve the results that you desire.
Many people feel stuck or are in a rut. Many know what they want but don’t know how to get it. Still others, feel like they should be doing something else with their life but aren’t sure what. Some people want clarity, some want more balance, and some just plain want to be happier. Would you like to be one of those people who love what they do for a living? Well, how about a career change? Have you ever thought about opening your own business? Or maybe you want to grow or improve your existing business. Coaching can help you with all of this and more. As your coach, I will support you in defining and achieving your definition of success.
Before I explain more about what coaching is, let me tell you a little of what coaching is not. Coaching is not therapy or consulting. Therapy primarily addresses the past as a means of healing who we are presently and consulting is the business of giving advice and guidance based on the consultant’s experience and specific area of expertise. The consultant, not the client, does most of the work.
Coaching deals more with the present and how we’re going to move forward and is not so much about giving advice or telling a client what to do. The power of coaching exists in the relationship between the coach and client. A good coach will use various coaching methods and his or her insights and skills to ask powerful questions and make revealing observations, thus promoting exploration and a back-and-forth flow of generative energy between the coach and the client. This process creates newly found awareness, clarity, and motivation for the client culminating with a plan of action towards achieving his or her goals. As Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Depending on the style of coaching, there are times, however, when suggestions may be made and advice given, providing that the coach first asks the client’s permission and has the appropriate knowledge to offer such information. After all, we don’t know what we don’t know.
Coaches are trained to listen, and listen well, using not only their ears but all of their senses. Coaches are sounding boards, motivators, mentors, and guides. Coaches hold their clients accountable for their actions or lack of action. The relationship between a coach and client is a confidential, structured support system where clients can experience surprising and amazing breakthroughs promoting lasting, positive changes in their lives. The coaching session will always be about what is important to you, the client!
