The Clinic @ The Montgomery offers life coaching.  What is life coaching? 
Coaching is defined by the International Coach Federation (2007) as “partnering with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential” which is particularly important in today’s complex and uncertain environment.
Coaches help to bridge the gap of where the client is to where they want to be.  This professional relationship helps clients produce extraordinary results in their lives, businesses and organizations.

Life coaching

Also known as personal coaching, is a collaborative process in which the trained coach helps the client achieve personal goals or make desired changes.  The goal is to have the client reach their goal in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way.  Examples topics a client may work with their coach include but are not limited to:
  • Work and life balance
  • Determining priorities
  • Something urgent or compelling is at stake
  • Personal challenges

Leadership Development Coaching

Our model focuses on increasing clarity and self-awareness while developing frameworks that inspire action.
What is leadership development coaching?  Leadership Development Coaching is a one on one partnership personalized for the client to help them step outside the pressures of everyday business and look at their work with a fresh perspective. This increased personal fluency and efficacy, combined with greater leadership flexibility and emotional intelligence produces enhanced possibilities for collaboration and creativity.  In turn, a high performance organizational culture develops along with improved business results.
Being a leader is more than a rank it’s about making a full commitment to be open to learning and growing your skills to be your personal best whether you are a business leader or a professional.  
Partnering with a coach can accelerate work performance, the client’s outlook on work as well as setting clear standards. Examples of topics to work with a leadership coach on include:
  • A desire to accelerate goals
