  • What is Coaching Anyway?

    Posted by: Brianne Krupsaw on Thursday, April 30, 2015

    More »

    Coaching is an action and results oriented collaborative process that supports people in getting from where they are to where they want to be.

    The coach is an objective listener, a non-judgmental ally focused entirely on the client and their agenda.

    Coaching involves a process of inquiry, momentum-building questions that help focus the client as they tap into their strengths, values, skills, experiences, wisdom, knowledge, and resources, and confront self-defeating thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that keep them stuck. Using this awareness the client can move forward, one step at a time, with greater ease.

    One big reason people seek the support of a coach is accountability:  coaches hold clients accountable for doing the things they say they will do.

    And, research shows that coaching builds self-reliance, and leads to outcomes far more sustainable than telling a client what they “should” do, and how to do it. Those are powerful outcomes.

    You have an opportunity to sample coaching at the AMTA-MA IDEA Conference, Sunday, May 3rd, to bring a current challenge that you want support in moving through, perhaps even walking away with your next step.

    Sessions are limited, and filled on a first come, first served basis.

    You can sign up for the Coaches Corner by contacting Brianne: brianne@theMassageEntrepreneur.com. Include your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice for your coaching session.  Sessions start at 2:002:303:00 and 3:30, and run for 25 minutes.  Sessions are booked on a first-come, first served basis. Be sure to include your phone number when e mailing your request.  For cancellations please contact Brianne via email. NOTE: If you need to cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled session, please call 617-285-9095.  

    P.S. Coaching is not therapy; behavior is not analyzed, and does not involve healing emotional wounds from the past. Coaching presumes that clients are in a good place mentally and emotionally.
