The first coaching session is 90 minutes. Follow up sessions can be scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes depending on your preference. The name ‘coaching’ uses a metaphor from the sports community where coaching is an established activity. I am very familiar with this activity given that my first job out of college was as a head baseball coach in a small college in the Midwest. In this position my responsibility was to partner with and help the athletes I recruited try to reach excellence. Although I’ve continued to stay connected with both college and professional athletes in my clinical work and as the President of Alive and Well Sports (www.aliveandwellsports), I’ve expanded my coaching and consulting to help individuals who work in the highest levels of business and government across the U.S. and around the globe. As a part of the process, I will help make you more aware of your reasons for current habits, beliefs, attitudes, actions, and goals. I will also help you learn new skills, establish new habits, and provide you with tools to build a more satisfying and successful future that is consistent with your goals and ambitions. More specifically, as a professional coach I help you: 1) discover, clarify, and align with what you want to achieve, 2) set rational goals and performance objectives, 3) elicit your self-generated solutions and strategies, 4) develop tailored and effective strategies and tactics for achieving your goals, 5) learn to effectively evaluate and reward approximations toward ultimate successes, and 6) hold you responsible and accountable. Finally, with regard to coaching, I’m a firm believer in the old adage that states that “You cannot teach someone to go where you have not been.” I make this point because frankly, I’ve “been there and done that” when it comes to solving many difficult individual, interpersonal and organizational problems. In addition to the real life experiences one gets after being married and raising a family, I have travelled the world and worked as a clinician and at the highest levels of local and national organizations. These experiences, taken together with my extensive training allow me to provide you with a very broad and unique perspective on any number of things you may want to accomplish as you strive to become your highest and best self.
Because Dr. Cole is in a private, solo practice, he loses the full amount of the cost of your session if you decide to reschedule or cancel your appointment without giving us sufficient time to back-fill your scheduled appointment. Accordingly, we request a 24 hours notice for rescheduling or canceling an appointment. There is no charge for rescheduling or canceling an appointment prior to this 24-hour window of time. If you reschedule or cancel your session without a 24-hour notice we reserve the right to charge the credit card you have on file with our office the full amount of a clinic hour.
