Wright Coaching

Our Philosophy

 

We live life to the fullest. We craft life stories worth telling. We dream BIG. We believe in cultivating an amazing life of continuous learning and growth. We dare to be different.

I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO…

Wright coaches delight in helping you achieve your goals and fulfill your heart’s desire. We enjoy this because we have been working to fulfill our own potential personally and professionally. We love to share our discoveries with others. It is not altogether so altruistic, however. As we help you, we learn and grow even more on our own path of professional and personal fulfillment. We can do this because we value mutuality and consider ourselves to be on the path with you.

WHAT WE BELIEVE…

Our Wright Leadership coaches believe that we each are responsible for our lives and create our own reality, that we are continually evolving and increasing in consciousness, that while no one can fix us, there are “more knowledgeable others” who help to evolve us to the next level. We believe that as we fulfill our own potential, we will enhance the quality of our lives and and the lives of those around us, and that we are all important and carry a unique essential element of humanity that needs to be manifested.

We approach our coaching from a standpoint of workability rather than morality, and we all have unfinished business to complete, that the impossible is possible, and there are pathways that can take us there. We believe that feelings are gifts and when responsibly expressed lead us to greater aliveness, and that we are each responsible for our own satisfaction in life.

WHO YOU ARE…

You are a discerning individual who wants the most out of life. You are motivated and may already have reached a high level of success, but still believe that you have not fully tapped your potential or performed highly, and you have chosen to dream bigger than you ever have before. You feel that the time is now to reach your goals and have the relationships you have always wanted. You want to know yourself more intimately, and share yourself with others. You want to live a meaningful life.

You are ready to start a relationship with a coach who will help you create a vision that inspires you, and be clear and objective and mindful of strategy as you head toward your vision. You know that truthful feedback will help you, and you are ready to be honest with your coach about the things that matter to you and the struggles you face.

WHO WE ARE…

We believe that all of us are learning and growing. Our coaches do not feel superior, nor do we feel inferior, regardless of your position. We see each of us as operating in a mutual relationship – learning, growing, serving, facing our own challenges, and seizing our own opportunities. Our coaches practice what they preach. Our business coaches are seasoned, business professionals who know what you are facing and what we are talking about, because we face and have faced our own challenges as executives in demanding positions. We have impressive track records in our respective fields. We engage in rigorous training as coaches, managers, sales professionals, leaders, and entrepreneurs. Our coaches receive regular on-going training and supervision – including weekly supervision – where coaching progress is reviewed and coaches receive support and strategy on how to bring you the best results. Our coaches never stop developing their skills in order to serve you better.

WHAT YOU GET…

Wright coaches give you a competitive edge. We help you clarify your goals and other intents with our ISAP (Ideal State Action Plan) process. We not only help you identify your goals with effective precision, but we also help you identify and clarify your mission, purpose, and other key values that you wish to further along with your goal achievement.

WRIGHT COACHING

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What exactly do you do as coaches?

We support our clients to have the life of their dreams – and to dream big! First, we help our clients to create a compelling vision of what they want (beyond mere hopes or fears). This vision can be all encompassing or can focus on one aspect of life – relationship, career, self-development, etc. Once this vision is clear, we develop and implement the goals and action steps to achieve it. Our role as coaches is to provide support, accountability, and training to make their vision a reality, continually reminding clients what they really want and who they really are.

Why would someone need a life coach?

A life coach can support you in breaking out of current restrictive thought patterns, lifestyle choices, or even relationships that are holding you back. Anyone who wants more out of life, has goals they want to achieve, a problem to solve or a vision to fulfill can benefit greatly from a coaching relationship. It can be difficult for us to make changes on our own, because we all have systems in place that keep us from getting what we want and staying stuck in our own status quo.

Just as an Olympic athlete continues to use a life coach to push them beyond what they believe they can achieve, people who want a lot out of life use life coaches to hold great visions for them and to hold them accountable to achieving those visions.

What results can people expect when they hire a life coach?

Our clients reach their goals, solve problems that have been plaguing them for years, and develop a greater vision of what is possible in their lives. More specifically, the people that we coach earn more money, have greater career satisfaction and enjoy more fulfilling relationships. The divorce rate in our couples coaching program is under 4% as opposed to the national average of 50%. Our coaching clients are able to build upon their success to see possibilities they could not have envisioned for themselves in the past.

How do you assess a client’s needs?

During the initial meeting, we work with them to identify their ideal vision, compare that against their current state, and develop a strategy to move in their desired direction. We divide life coaching into seven areas: relationship to body (which includes diet and fitness), relationship to self, family and intimacy, networking and friendship/support, work and career, leisure, principles and society, and life purpose and spirituality.

During a coaching session, we listen for key elements that reappear underneath the surface of a story that clients tell. Many people come in wanting to meet a small goal, such as making more money or improving their marriage. These smaller problems are indicative of a deeper need, such as a need to be seen and heard or a need to make a difference. Once we determine our clients’ deeper spiritual hungers, we are able to develop steps to satisfying those hungers directly.

Can you list some specific examples of how you helped a client?

In terms of increased income, we’ve coached a photographer who increased her annual earnings from $12,000 to $200,000, a musician who went from making $25,000/year to $100,000/year, and an insurance salesman who increased his income from $30,000 to $500,000/year.

We have coached separated couples from being on the brink of divorce to reconciliation and increased intimacy and fulfillment.

One woman that we coach has moved several levels up the corporate ladder and is now a COO of a nationally known company.

See what our client's have to say about their experiences.

Who is your typical client?

We work with anyone who wants to maximize the quality in every aspect of his or her life! Our clients run the gamut from executives, stay-at-home moms, college students, retirees, entrepreneurs, working moms, and single parents. We’ve coached 16 year olds and 80 year olds, but the majority of our clients are in their 30s and 40s and are well-educated, upwardly mobile men and women with graduate degrees.

What kind of training do you have?

All our life and career coaches have at least Master degrees in related fields such as Counseling, Social Work, Communications, Psychology, and at least 500 additional hours of training. And because we believe strongly in the benefits of coaching and supervision, all of our life and career coaches, including receive ongoing coaching and a minimum two hours of supervision a week.

Are life coaches certified in any way?

At Wright, we certify our own life and career coaches using a rigorous training program of at least 300 hours in one-on-one interaction, 100 hours in human growth and development training, 50 hours in vision realization training, 50 hours in principled living training, 50 hours in team building, and ongoing courses as the coach develops.

What should people look for in a life coach?

You should look for someone who is modeling the type of life that you want. Look for a life coach who is walking the walk and knows what it takes to live a great life. We recommend that you find someone with a proven track record who continues to study and improve. Find a life coach who helps you take effective action quickly while holding you accountable to achieving a high vision and high quality of life.
