Coaching Women and Girls To Win The Game of Life

Have you Considered Coaching for your personal, business, and or spiritual growth?

What is a Life Coach

A life coach is a person that works in partnership with an individual to help them reach their potential across all facets of life.
A life coach works with coaching clients to help them make improvements in their lives and move out of their stuck states. A life coach assumes that the client has the knowledge within themselves to make the improvements and the coach works more as a facilitator than as a counselor.
Coach Tee provides faith-based coaching to develop your purpose and bring clarity in pursuit of your passion in daily life. She has been coaching individuals and organizations for over a decade.

Benefits of Coaching

  • Improved self-confidence – A study by the International Coaching Federation (IFC) discovered that 80% of people who hired a life coach reported an improvement in self-confidence.
  • A different perspective – A life coach can provide a new and often helpful perspective on things.
  • Heightened self-awareness – Being fully aware of your impact on others and recognizing your flaws, strengths, and unique personality attributes
  • Achieve goals – being able to define your life goals and create a concrete, doable plan to achieve them.
  • Discover clarity of purpose – Clarity of purpose is vital if you want to pursue your dreams, a life coach can assist you in creating this focus.
  • Create a balanced life – Identify what balance looks like for you and define action steps to achieve more balance in your life.
    Coaching is an investment in yourself that leads to a greater potential of successfully reaching your goals now and in the future.
