How does coaching work?
Focused questioning is used to get to the underlying issues of a person's goals, motivation and performance, with the goal of enabling the client to become the best they can be in what they choose to pursue. A typical example of contact would be weekly or biweekly telephone seesions of forty-five minutes to one hour for at least three months.

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
