Meet Becca, a systems programmer from Kansas City

What prompted you to enroll in Energize Your Life?

I had never even heard about coaching until a friend called to tell me about the Energize Your Life course. She said she felt better after her first session, so I had to try it!

What are the tangible results of your coaching experience?

We still had items in boxes from a recent move. Sarah worked with me to get a plan in place to get every room in my house organized with a timeline. She held me do my timeline too. Our garage was completely cleaned out the first weekend we started!

What are the intangible results of your coaching experience?
I learned a lot about myself. My biggest result was learning where my weaknesses are in things and how to work on those weaknesses. I always have an end-goal, but I never knew how to get to that goal. Sarah taught me how to get there.

What are Sarah's strengths as a coach?
She held me accountable, and that produces results. She really pushed me to my limits (in a good way), and she made me answer questions that I was avoiding. Answering those questions made me progress on things I had been stumped on for a while.

What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience? Would you change anything?

The 30 minute sessions, and daily habits meant the most. Creating daily habits helped me be consistent with my weight loss and spend time with my family outside of our daily routines.

Do you feel your coaching dollars were worth it? Why or Why Not?
Yes, I feel my coaching dollars were worth it. My time with Sarah resulted in me being more productive.

Why do you think coaching works?
Some things I would've never shared with friends, but I knew that if I didn't share with Sarah, I would be in the same situation I was going into coaching. I also think accountability is a huge success factor. Sarah is not going to forget the commitments you've discussed with her, and this is a fantastic thing!

Anything else you would like to share?
I will use Sarah as a coach in the future!

My closets, garage and car are clutter free :) I have a white board full of goals and objectives that will continue to help me stay focused. We have a dedicated day of the week for family fun day which is most rewarding.

What are the intangible results of your coaching experience?

I have removed things from my life that I always felt like I should do, not what I wanted or needed to do. I also removed things from my life that I tolerated that were draining my energy so I could focus on more meaningful things.

Sarah is a great listener and has a very positive outlook on every situation.

What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience? Would you change anything?

Meeting Sarah, feeling great after every call and getting focused.

Do you feel your coaching dollars were worth it? Why or Why Not?

Absolutely, because every dollar spent that is invested in yourself is a dollar worth spending. I feel I have a clear vision, I'm having more fun, I feel less stressed and am enjoying life.

Coaching helps identify and set attainable goals. It helps bring clarity and organization to our thought process.





Sean
Meet Sean, a marketing director from Kansas City, Missouri.

What prompted you to enroll in Vision 2011?

I wanted to spend some time focusing on me and  learning about how my actions or non-actions were shaping me and taking me in a direction away from my personal target state. I was excited about the concepts to be explored and knew that a dedicated work effort would be helpful for me in many areas of my life.

What are the tangible results of your coaching experience?

The coaching experience provided me the forum to work through some simple but important concepts. The work efforts allowed me to better focus on positive activities and spend less time or eliminate negative activities.

What are the intangible results of your coaching experience?

The coaching experience helped provide a great framework for thinking through some important "life trade offs" that needed to be made. I believe the decisions made in my day to day life have been positively influenced by the coaching experience.

What are Sarah's strengths as a coach?

Sarah is a very knowledgeable, professional coach that is able to help ensure clients like me focus on the positive and eliminate the negative. Her communication style provides an easy forum for talking through some difficult concepts and realities in a manner that makes the process very enjoyable.

What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience? Would you change anything?

I continue to "attack the day" and have shared many of the simple but important concepts with by close friends and family. I believe the process is very rewarding and consider the full experience meaningful and would not change the fundamentals of the process.

Do you feel your coaching dollars were worth it? Why or Why Not?

I absolutely believe this was a good investment. Much like a personal trainer, often it takes a professional to focus your attention in the right areas to ensure that progress is being made.

Why do you think coaching works?

If coaching did not work, every youth, collegiate, and professional athletic team in the world would simply use player-coaches and set the lineup alphabetically. Just like athletics, a coach can help you identify and strengthen fundamentals, drill components of your positive energy decision making process until they become natural to you, and provide positive encouragement to ensure maximum performance in life.





Sarah A.
Meet Sarah, a licensed therapist from Overland Park, Kansas.

What prompted you to enroll in Vision 2011?

A recommendation from a friend. Plus, I was at a place in my life that I needed to step up and take ownership for the direction my life and my career were going.

What are the tangible results of your coaching experience?

I'm motivated and moved on several things I'd been procrastinating on like deciding to look for another job or really grow my private practice. When I decided the sense of ENERGY was great! I also started working on marketing ideas for my business I had been putting off like completing my website and developing the concept of a niche practice.

What are the intangible results of your coaching experience?

I have a greater sense of VITALITY and ENERGY! Before I started coaching with Sarah I felt like I had little energy and little to no vitality or direction.

What are Sarah's strengths as a coach?

I like Sarah's acceptance, style of joining and feeling like I was understood and appreciated. Sarah's offering of time and energy to review, renew and look at my own strengths and affirmation during every session was wonderful. Sarah also has great focus and held my vision of what I really wanted and how I would feel once I was truly living my vision.

What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience?

The realization of myself, my inward ability to pull things together. I feel less fragmented and more integrated as I was able to bring together the important parts of who I am.

Do you feel your coaching dollars were worth it? Why or Why Not?

YES! Coach Sarah's input, questions and thoughts she shared with me during my individual sessions were priceless. Taking time to work on myself took strength, endurance and stamina which was worth it because it brought me ENERGY And VITALITY!

Why do you think coaching works?

I think most of us don't value these things because they take time to realize, and don't have instant gratification since we cannot touch or feel them, yet we can if we let ourselves.  Through coaching with Sarah we worked on the important questions.   WHO am I becoming?  What do I recognize as important, valuable?   I am dealing with more of the “WHAT', which is what I can take ownership for.   THANK YOU.
