Richard’s Coaching Philosophy

John Maxwell recently defined a coach as “…someone who can come alongside of you and can correct you without criticizing you in a way that is negative in your life.  A coach is a word that means ‘come alongside’.  Come alongside and share together, teach, listen and lead.”  My coaching involves the ability to understand you: to live where you live, think how you think, and understand your perspective.  From this benchmark, I will place another perspective on top of yours stretching and growing you to gently see a different way.  As a Certified John Maxwell Coach, I can see what you are going through and things you are going to go through. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside and adding value to you. It is my objective to help you learn how to become Calm, Confident, Consistent, & Courageous in every aspect of your life.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.Franciscan Blessing
At heart I’m a dreamer who believes that we all need to be challenged to think bigger…to pursue a life that becomes a life of habitual purpose, significance, & building a legacy.  The question we need to ask ourselves daily is – if you died today what dreams, what abilities, what talents, what gifts would die with you?  As your coach I will assist you in unleashing those gifts, allowing you to realize your ultimate purpose.  Together we will create actionable steps that will allow you to exploit fear, punch mediocrity in the face, & create a life full of significance.

Individual Coaching

When I’m working one-on-one with a client, it’s my number one objective to help you reach your purpose, vision, and goals by working through techniques & programs specific to your needs. Together, we will create a strategic plan that is a powerful way for you to gain clarity through a weekly process including interaction and accountability.

  • Genuine Results

Group Coaching

When I am working in a group setting, although it’s not singular in nature, having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create. The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.

  • Strength In Numbers

    Reaching or surpassing desired goals is significantly enhanced; this is due to the energy created, experience, ideas and solutions shared, as well as the support provided through a group coaching session.

  • Multiple Perspectives

    With other people moving toward the same goals, each member can learn from other participants’ point of view and experiences. Members can use those perspectives to expand their own ways of seeing things.

  • Culture Change

    In today’s business context of breaking down silos, a group coaching process often brings together individuals from different parts of an organization. Group coaching can be the catalyst needed to support cultural change.

  • Affordability

    Group coaching is more cost-effective than individual coaching for many clients. It’s a great introduction to the coaching model and can also work as a powerful maintenance program for clients after they complete one-on-one coaching.
