Although there are many life coaches out there, Lois stands out with authenticity and presence. I have a successful career, but I wanted things to be better. I sought coaching to narrow down my professional focus, solve work frustrations, and figure out where I wanted to go with it all. Lois led me to discover how to be excited again about my direction. I learned that I was standing in my own way on several work issues, and now I have a plan to move forward and even excel! I highly recommend Lois as an exceptional life coach, for significant results!

What You Need To Know About Coaching

What's a Life Coach?

As a certified Life Coach, I encourage, support and motivate you to achieve the goals you choose for personal transformation. I partner with you as you discover how to connect the dots in your life.

What is a Career Coach?

As a certified Career Coach, I do exactly what a Life Coach does with a focus on your work and career goals.  I partner with you to achieve the outcomes that allow you to reach your fullest potential.

Where does coaching take place?

Most of our coaching sessions will take place on Zoom, where I will provide a link, or over the phone. These methods are extremely convenient and effective for you to fit coaching into your schedule. 

What is my role in coaching?

Life and career coaching are partnerships. You take the lead in coaching by letting me know what you want to achieve, what you need to get your goal and how you want to be supported in your efforts.

What distinguishes a life coach from a therapist?

A life coach offers guidance by clarifying and achieving personal and professional goals, helps you improve communication skills, works with you to achieve balance in your work and life and offers strategies for you to reach and maintain short and longterm goals. A therapist works with you to recover from past traumas, explore why past relationships have been destructive, work through depression that may affect your ability to function and help you survive loss or divorce of a loved one.

How Do I know If Coaching is Right For Me?

  • You’re ready to create life on your terms.
  • You desperately want renewed energy in your work.
  • You want clarity as you move forward.
  • Your need support to achieve your goal.
  • You’re looking for a strategy that works.

If any of these apply, check out these coaching practices.

1. Powerful Questions

Powerful questions come from a place of genuine curiosity. They are open-ended and activate the brain so that you can connect the dots. Powerful questions are direct, simple, specific and succinct. They generate creative thinking, uncover underlying information, encourage self-reflection, keep inquiry alive, stretch and expand awareness, bring growth and open the possibility of transformation.

2. Creating a Vision

Visualization is powerful tool that can take your goal setting to the next level. When you visualize reaching your goal, you make it real. Athletes, writers, politicians, businesspeople who achieve great success often use visualization to improve their performance. If you ‘see’ the dream realized, the path becomes much clearer. Setting your intention with visualization works. You get to claim your goal in advance.

3. Personality Strengths

What are your strengths and what do they say about you? There are a variety of free assessments that I will offer. Most often, the results re-enforce what you already know and with insights that help you take the next step. They can help you clarify your leadership skills, conquer obstacles, build self-esteem, resolve issues, express yourself, change your perspective and provide decision making.

4. Neuroscience & Brain Based Coaching

According to neuroscience, change is pain because it provokes physiological discomfort. If you want to create a new habit, you’ll do it through repetition and positive reinforcement which leads to long-lasting personal evolution. Focus is power because it creates chemical and physical changes in the brain. What you focus on, you strengthen, so you will focus on what you want, instead of what you don’t want. 

5. Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is an ability to identify and manage your own emotions as well as the emotions of others. It offers you the clarity to distinguish between and label different emotions. Then you can use that emotional information to guide your thinking and behavior, and influence that of others. The framework of EQ includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills.

My Approach

I believe you are whole. Even so, you may wonder whether you’re getting the most out of your life in your relationships or in your workplace. Together we will find the answers you already possess so that you can connect the dots. You will discover what it is you want to transform, focus on what means the most to you, design a course for your life and work and continue to grow with measurements to sustain your desired outcome.

I know what it means to set my sights on a dream, without the clarity or support to get to the next level. Once I learned how to design my life and work with focused attention, my journey has unfolded beyond what I imagined. You’ve got those answers, too. I can’t wait to see the next chapter of your story.
