Our Coaching Philosophy
Coaching is a tool for emotionally healthy career professionals to enable them to achieve their professional, career, and personal goals. It is not therapy and Blue Pencil Institute does not provide therapy. Rather, we address the specific needs in the client’s profession, relationships, and personal life that are appropriate to his or her professional goals. For the most part, we focus our attention on what’s going on right now and in the future. Our collaborative work enables career professionals to discover the obstacles, challenges, and opportunities before them. Together, we design and work through an action plan for our clients to help them make their careers and their lives what you want them to be.
Coaching is a co-creative relationship that can be developed one-on-one or in groups. At Blue Pencil Institute, we partner in a thought-provoking and creative coaching process that enables our clients to maximize their professional and personal potential. Together, we enter into truthful dialogue about our clients, their aspirations, strengths, motivations and the real and perceived barriers to success. We carve out a quiet, safe space in our clients’ busy lives in which they are free to explore new perspectives. Our purpose in coaching is to help career professionals to achieve BIG shifts in their thinking and positive forward movement in their professional career and in their lives.
