Individual Coaching and Mentoring

Accelerating your growth

What would be different if you knew you had unlimited time, talent, and resources?

(Spoiler alert: You already have them!)

Would you push through the stories holding you back and be the leader others want to follow? Would you change jobs to do something that has you jumping out of bed every day? Would you write a book, give a TEDx talk, or start a new business?

There’s no limit to what becomes possible when you get out of your way and own the fact that you do have unlimited time, talent, and resources.

Whether you’re feeling stuck, unsure of where to go from here, or simply want to up your game:

I can help!

The key to having what you want?

Intention

Your intentions are foundational to getting what you want. Checking in on both your long and short-term intentions will keep you on track towards your goals.

Awareness

Awareness is a muscle that needs regular exercise to stay strong. When your awareness is strong it’s easier to see your stories for what they are and choose differently.

Confront

Your awareness allows you to turn and confront your truth. Only when you can confront your truth will the breakthroughs occur that change your life.

Coaching and Mentoring

can help you reach your goals sooner

Coaching and Mentoring is a process that will activate what you already have in you while helping you get out of your own way. Your process will continue past our work together, as the tools and awareness will enable you to continue celebrating breakthroughs long after our work together.

Let’s return to the opening question:

What would be different if you knew you had unlimited time, talent, and resources?

If there’s anything you think would be different, then why not book an introductory conversation and let’s talk about making that happen!

The secret ingredient

The Responsibility Process®

You’ll learn exactly how each of us takes (and don’t take) Responsibility for our mindsets, activities, choices — and lives. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to apply this understanding as you do the work to attain your goals in our work together.

The benefits of working with Mike

As a result of working with me, my clients have reported benefits such as:

  • A new sense of freedom, by being aware of how they are creating and choosing their reality
  • An increase in their impact as a leader, by understanding and enhancing what makes them the most powerful version of themself
  • They make big decisions more quickly, by changing the stories they’re telling themselves
  • A higher resiliency for whatever life might throw their way, by knowing they are bigger than any problem and how to choose their response
  • A return to enjoying their life and career, by knowing what will bring them more fulfillment

Everyone’s experience from coaching is as unique as the process they engage in during our relationship.

How does coaching and mentoring work?

We will design a coaching and mentoring process to help you achieve your goals.

Towards the start of our coaching and mentoring relationship, we will build a foundation of language and understanding to accelerate our work together. This work will include learning, understanding, and integrating:

From the start, you’ll bring a topic to each session.  Your topic will make the work we do together far more meaningful (we never make things up). So every session will be a mix of learning, exploring, deepening, and integrating.

At the end of the session, you leave with a new direction, insight, or challenge to help you move forward. 

Choose the level of service that works for you

Breakthrough Session

A single session can often be enough to help you break through a nagging problem, explore your next step, or make a big decision. You will leave your breakthrough session with newly found insights, clarity, and direction.

Activation Program

An Activation Program is a six-month investment in your personal growth and leadership. You will leave each session with new insights, a breakthrough, or a challenge that will keep you moving forward.

In an Activation Program, Our work together will help you reach your long-term goals during your Activation Program and might even exceed them.  You also have access to Mike between sessions as sometimes urgent issues will have you wanting more immediate support.

(Up to 20% discount over a single Breakthrough session)

Getting Started

Everyone’s coaching process is unique and follows three basic steps:

 

1

Explore

Your coaching and mentoring process starts with a free exploratory coaching session. This time allows us to explore how individual coaching can help you achieve your goals. 

2

 Design 

We will design our relationship to help you achieve your goals sooner. We will explore how you step up, hold yourself back, and why you behave the way you do. Then, we will establish clear goals for your investment in coaching and mentoring.

3

Activate

From the start, you will be responsible for bringing a topic to each session. These topics will provide the focus of our work together as you pursue, and achieve your goals.

Recommendations from my coaching and mentoring clients

Mike has helped me take better control of where I want my life to go by using my internal saboteurs for good, by understanding my values, and by helping me see that some of the habits I thought were helping me were hindering me.  While I’m still on my journey, I look to Mike for help when I’m stuck or when I just need a new way of framing my situation.  If you’re looking for a coach to walk with you to the starting point of your own path, or maybe just be there when you step off the path for a bit into the wilderness, Mike is the coach for you.  I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Matt Villeneuve

Quality Assurance Manager, PatriotOne Technologies

Over the past year in working with Mike, I have grown so much as person and have gotten to know myself, and those around me, much better.  Mike gave me a framework on which to build, and helped me learn a new language, one of responsibility, personal values, and self discovery.  I am now engaged with my life, living it intentionally, doing the things I want and choose to do.
I recommend Mike as a coach without hesitation!
Andrea Villeneuve

Senior Project Manager, Macadamian

Mike is easy going, funny, down to earth, trusting, and a great listener. He makes you think really hard and helps you dig down to the source of issues and coaches you for the solution.

I highly recommend Mike as a personal coach.

Joanne Stone

Agile Coach, JoJo Consulting

Mike is a fantastic coach. He’s the coach that I turn to when I need to tackle something that I can’t get my head around. He’s brought clarity to a few situations and ideas that I have been struggling with for a while.

His methods really help to identify behaviours and limiting assumptions you may have that could be working against you. The power questions helped to dig to the root of the issue so they could be exposed to work through. He’s a good listener and is quite empathetic.

The care Mike puts into his work is impressive. I would recommend Mike to anyone that is serious about making a change in their life

Jon Tracy

Senior Agile Coach, Index Exchange

Why you need a coach

“If you want an extraordinary jump in the quality of your life you have to set yourself up to win. You’ve got to set yourself up for the process that allows you to consistently grow, consistently enjoy your life, and consistently get the results you’re after. I don’t care what area of your life you want to change, coaching is one of the most valuable tools in the world” — Tony Robbins
