SQUARING THE CIRCLE WITH COACHING

Sooner or later all of us, and especially us women, might find ourselves in a humdrum, dead end, or catch 22 which prevents us from reaching our highest potential or having greater impact on results that matter. The truth is, often we are not performing at our best only because we are trapped in a way of thinking about ourselves that restricts our ability to express our maximum potential. Squaring the circle might be closer at hand than we believe, and this is when coaching comes into play… and support.

Benefits of coaching
