An extraordinary and unique relationship designed to create a significant impact and sustainable results in all areas of a person’s life.
Coaching is a powerful process uniquely designed to create lasting change. Coaching is also a profession, and one that offers highly qualified experts the opportunity to experience career fulfillment as well as financial security.
Coaching offers a distinct advantage over business consulting.Business consultants typically use their specific knowledge and prescribe a course of action to achieve an objective. They TELL the client what needs to be done and they may even do the work that is required.
While consulting is about the consultant delivering the right answers, coaching is about asking the right questions while empowering clients to create their own customized and personal solutions and become the drivers of their own success. Through improved communication, focus and accountability, coaching dramatically increases clients’ capacity to accomplish better results on their own. Coaching does not deliver a single solution – it permanently increases the client’s own ability to repeatedly develop solutions.
Coaching is not counseling. Counseling aims to heal mental and psychological issues and often examines PAST events. It usually centers on diagnosing a ‘problem’ that needs to be addressed. Coaching involves no such diagnosis and in fact, coaches only see opportunities, not problems. Coaches shift the focus from “why” to “how.” Coaching is very results oriented, maintaining a focus on the current situation and actively developing plans for the FUTURE. Counseling focuses on helping people to live functional lives. Coaching focuses on helping functional people live extraordinary lives.
What is it worth to be able to really hear and understand people? Every one of us is blessed with special gifts and talents. I am thankful that I have been blessed with the gift of being able to appreciate what I can hear and see. I have been successful in business because I believe in myself, more importantly I believe in the greatness of others. I have taken this path of coaching because I truly believe that I can help others try and achieve their own personal greatness. Like any good coach, football, baseball, or otherwise I believe anyone can become the greatest ” them ” that they will allow themselves to be. I feel honored when people allow me to partner with them in their journey to live at the cause of their own lives rather than the effect.
Eliot brings a positive, high-energy, and thoughtful coaching style. Absolutely love working with him so far. Already have had multiple perspective shifts thanks to his insight. Already accomplished more things with the accountability and his gentle, expert prodding. Would definitely recommend!
Typically we do a free discovery session to make sure we connect and a clienyt feels I can help them. Then we discuss their needs and go from there

I remember a saying that goes like this: If you try and avoid your destiny by taking a different path, fate will find you on whatever path you have taken. I have always been the “go to ” guy for many of my friends seeking advice and opinions. It is specifically in this realm that I have always seemed to call my friends just when they needed that call. I live by the slogan that it’s not what you say, but how you say it. I feel it is truly so important to reach out and be connected with people. My friends and associates are people from all generations and I have had great success connecting with adolescents and quarter lifers.
I also will be coaching with weight management clients, having wrestled with obesity for years. I understand that in order to sustain the change people make they need to shift the “who” that is showing up.
