I am asked time and time again, what is my coaching process? I do my best to answer each time in the context of the individual asking the question. I think that it may be time to go into a little more detail.
Coaching is a unique profession with lots of interesting parts. Unlike working with almost any other professional, and indeed any in the helping realm, working with a coach is an investment in someone, with an expected return that can improve or clarify decisions in a person’s life. Because over time, my clients invest a substantial amount of time and money in the process, and agree to be held accountable for their actions, they immediately demonstrate a commendable amount of commitment to participate and get results. Working together combining their efforts with my results-oriented approach, my clients get powerful, measurable, and sometimes—in their opinion—miraculous results that last.

I see people looking for coaches generally for one of two reasons. First, because of the growing awareness of the profession, more people in all walks of life consider working with a coach to try a cutting edge modality that offers new possibilities for success. The second comes from what they have heard—that coaching works. People are starting to use a coach because it makes good sense to have someone who is non-judgmental, a good listener, and able to think outside of the box, helping them manage their life better, thus making it more enjoyable
My “Frank Coaching’” coaching process is a combination of Core Energy Coaching developed by Bruce D. Schneider, the founder of the iPEC Coach Training program in New Jersey, and the holistic combination of methodologies championed by Dan Dougherty of Garden Cottage Counseling in Richmond, Virginia. When you add this to the already conventional paradigms from the established coaching community, you have a process that can take a client from self-discovery and emotional intelligence, to leadership development and executive coaching.
I like to think that my “Frank Coaching” process utilizes the best of the various modalities, giving me the opportunity to offer my clients a unique client-helper relationship. The relationship becomes a powerful alliance—a partnership in a way—to help my clients better manage their lives, experience more fulfillment, and identify and live their dreams. I have learned that although change is not necessarily controllable, our impressions of it, and reactions to it, are indeed controllable. It isn’t always easy for any of us to deal with the rapidly changing world and how it affects our lives; the coaching relationship helps clients not only manage, but also thrive in the face of those changes.

Working with me through the “Frank Coaching” coaching process my clients are challenged to take time to focus on what they really want and it helps them to recognize and break through what is holding them back from creating their own version of success, in whatever manner they measure it. People are tired of doing what they “should” do and want/need to experience a fuller life by doing what they “choose“ to do. Using the process I have developed, I help you do just that… create and experience the future you choose.
