I experienced some very significant, career changing achievements in the first few months of my coaching with Jim. Until then, I had been under-achieving. The coaching gave me the boost that I needed to get over the bar necessary to make progress in my career. I remember my Dad saying to me, 'I wish I was just 10% smarter. It would make such a big difference.' Coaching has made me 10% smarter, and it has made a big difference.
Coaching helped me to be more positive about myself and my capability. Paying attention to where I am physically has raised my awareness of where I am mentally and emotionally, and also about what I am communicating to others. I find that 'fixing' my physical state doesn't take me all the way, but it's like a wake-up call and I can get my mental and emotional self aligned much more readily when I'm aware of the physical clues and strategies.
I've learned how to find my best self, and how to turn that into business results. My coaching experience has given me a real chance at the career that I want and given me a great start. Before coaching I really felt that I didn't have the chance and couldn't get started.
And on top of all that, I have a new friend!
