What is Coaching?

Coaching is a unique solution to the age-old challenge of how to make positive change in your life. While therapy is focused on the past and insightful consideration of past events, coaching is focused on forward thinking and taking action to achieve new, incremental, professional goals.

Cori works with a diverse range of clientele, including college seniors starting out in the professional world, individuals re-entering the workplace, mid-career changers, those developing their managerial skills at work, and small business owners.

Cori works in partnership with clients to determine needs and objectives that are important to them personally and professionally.

Timeframe
Cori tailors coaching to meet your needs, but often consulting follows these patterns:

  • Individual coaching is usually established for a three-month period, to initiate incremental change. Behavior change takes time!
  • Career coaching, involving major shifts, starts with six to eight sessions, to carefully examine personal preferences, values, and goals. Often Cori continues on a month to month basis as needed, to provide guidance and support.
  • Management coaching clients often meet with Cori over a long period, as trust is established, increasing self-confidence and facilitating steady growth. She has worked with some clients for years. Others leave and then re-contact, when they have new goals.

Organizational work is based on the goals of the client manager or office. Cori gears timelines to the culture, leaders, and objectives of the organization.

“Cori has been of inestimable value to me as a career strategist and management coach. She has the gift of encouragement, but she also keeps driving toward the goal at hand. Cori’s advice made all the difference for me during two recent job searches and in my ability to get a fast, confident start. I like that she integrates the Myers-Briggs profile as a non-threatening tool for self-discovery and behavior change. Above all, Cori sizes up specific needs quickly and always has the perfect next step in mind. For all these reasons, I am continuing to work with Cori as a management coach, now that I am in a new job with immediate and high expectations.”
