Steve Coxsey is a Whole Life Leadership Coach, helping clients successfully juggle competing responsibilities and bring more alignment to the different priorities in their lives. Many of his clients are transitioning to self-employment, starting a business, or growing their business. He provides a combination of coaching, consultation, and mentorship in one-on-one sessions or in groups. This involves sharing some areas of expertise, helping clients determine what information and training they need, and then guiding them in creating and implementing development plans for themselves as leaders and strategic plans to design and create their businesses around their values and lifestyle priorities.
Coaching gives you a focused place to sort out your own thoughts, get clear about your values and your priorities, and learn about your strengths. You realize what matters most to you, what resources you have, and in what areas you need to learn things or develop skills to reach the goals you have set. Though it’s a professional service, coaching has a very personal quality, meaning you are not treated as a number or given a cookie-cutter template. Your plan, created jointly by you and Steve, is customized to your priorities, your strengths, and your values, built on your talents and resources. When you have a clear view of your abilities, what’s at stake for you, and your motivation coming from your values and priorities, you are more capable and make more consistent progress. You also have strategies for dealing with struggles and setbacks based on past successes and the strengths you have that serve you best in tough times.
