Why Employ a Coach?

Thomas Leonard, the father of professional coaching along with a team of thought leaders in the coaching field developed a laundry list of reasons everyone should employ a coach. Check out the list and see which of the reasons fit your situation.

What is Coaching?

The role of the Coach is to ask the right questions, assist in making quality decisions, encourage and hold the client accountable for the execution of the plans he/she has made. Success Discoveries coaches offer perspective, tools, and experience that individuals can use to influence their life and more consistently and energetically enjoy achieving personal goals and leaders can use to influence their organizations, enhance their performance and increase success.

Professional coaching focuses on empowering superior development through increased knowledge, improved talents, development of soft skills and increasing personal motivation. Coaching’s purpose is to support attainment, through a partnership, of the highest possible level of personal satisfaction, performance and achievement. This is done through a collaborative peer-to-peer effort (co-active process) to achieve superior heights yet unknown. It begins by utilizing investigative tools to quickly identify behavioral style, personal motivators and soft skills and establishing measurable goals. When supporting a person in their career or job, diagnostic tools are also used to help identify the what will be required for success and where focused effort will be most beneficial. The coaching tools used for creating success are designed to meet every need.

Our coaching diagnostic tools measure normal behavior, interests, values and soft skills. They do not measure or diagnose abnormal psychology.

Self-Directed Programs are Cost-Effective

Our coaches have worked hard to design and share their best thoughts, exercises and strategies in a self-directed format. This can be a cost-effective alternative to coaching. All of our self-directed programs have full satisfaction money-back guarantees.

Our Philosophy

  • “People don’t change much. Don’t waste time trying to put in what was left out. Try to draw out what was left in. That is hard enough.” Borrowed from First, Break All the Rules by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman.
  • Understand who you are, what makes you tick, what motivates you and how you do what you do - self-discovery will help you determine the path to discovering success.
  • A coach is a trusted third party who is objective and professionally competent that serves as a friend who you have entrusted to hold you accountable for your success.

What We Are Not

While some of our coaches are licensed counselors or therapists, we exist to provide professional coaching services - not therapy. Also, this site does not sell e-mail addresses and will never distribute or otherwise share any information you provide to this site. We are not an advertising and marketing portal to the hundreds of self-help books being promoted on the web and through bookstores.
