In honor of International Coaching Week, February 6 through 12, I am posting a series of short articles about coaching.
Day 7: What Does Archer Coaching Offer?
Archer Coaching offers professional coaching and development services provided by Laura Poole, ACC. This blog post details some of what I provide, my mission and vision, and my target clients.
I have a vision of engaged communities where people are fulfilled by meaningful work and live balanced, joyful lives in alignment with their values.
To achieve my vision, I provide coaching to motivated professionals who seek to create a meaningful career path (whether that’s moving forward, moving up, or moving on) and balance their work with the other aspects of their lives in a joyous and sustainable way.
I enjoy coaching working professionals in all fields and at all levels. I choose to work with motivated people who want to create significant, purposeful work and make sure it is balanced with the rest of their lives, so the whole picture is one of joyful abundance. I frequently work with the self-employed, knowledge workers, creative people, entrepreneurs, and managers (not just executives).
The core of Archer Coaching is working with individuals. I provide a variety of ways to support clients, including half-hour and hour-long phone and Skype sessions, in-person sessions, and email check-ins. Anyone can try a complimentary sample session to explore whether coaching is right for them. I offer packages of sessions that include a la carte (purchased individually, used as desired by client) or regularly scheduled twice a month or four times a month. I have a large variety of exercises available to support clients, including a Life Plan overview and a Values Elicitation tool.
Energy Leadership Index
A powerful tool for personal insight and growth is the Energy Leadership Index assessment from iPEC. Laura is a Master Practitioner of this tool and can help you take the assessment, debrief and explain the results, and work with you (through the Energy Leadership Development System) to develop a personally effective style of ideal leadership. See the Energy Leadership pages on this site for more information.
Group and Team Coaching
Laura is also trained in providing team coaching. If you have a work or community team that is moving toward a common goal, consider what coaching for the group can accomplish. Team coaching uses coaching principles to tap into the synergistic “group think” and engage all the members, allowing creativity to flow, new thoughts and possibilities explored, and more to be accomplished.
Through my affiliation with Roving Coach, I offer on-the-job coaching to corporate clients. In this exciting model for in situ coaching, I am available on site or virtually to any employee of a company who contracts with Roving Coach. I provide half-hour focused sessions as needed, on any issue the worker feels moved to get support for. (For more information about Roving Coach, go to their web site.)
In addition to core coaching services, I also offer workshops and seminars (see Speaking page for prepared topics), as well as articles (available at Ezinearticles.com) and other writing. I have a recorded teleclass on Life Balance available (see Products page), and a book coming out in mid-year 2011, Effective Coaching, 2nd edition (for managers, from McGraw-Hill).
