Change happens every day- and now transitioning seasons and mindsets to the “big push” of last quarter can be overwhelming. Decisions that have been put off now need to be addressed and projects completed. The four
steps in decision making are below. It is common for people to get caught in a “feedback loop” in step 3, to keep circling back between steps 2 and 3, and never making it to step 4.

1. Determine need
2. Research options


3. Analyze the pros and cons of each
4. Make a decision

Another scenario is to make the decision and then become caught in a fear trap- procrastinating and not taking action. If you need help with these or similar issues, an advocate and brainstorm buddy,you may contact me for a Complimentary Peak Performance Success Coaching Consult to set up a personalized program to figure the “its” out and you will take action. Our sessions may be in Baldwin, Long Island and effectively via phone or Skype. To arrange, please contact eileen@balanceandpower.com 516 623 4353.

Organizational and corporate teams may experience similar issues as individuals, on a larger scale.

Yes, I agree. Movement is instrumental to progress and being “run over”.
Perseverance- Or?
“It’s always too early to quit.” Norman Vincent Peale
OK- I think we all agree that before “quitting”, explore all options. And, to be aware of “the tipping point”. Sometimes, it’s indicated “to quit”. Before quitting, if it’s a project or action you are passionate about, brainstorm with a coach!

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. -Henry David Thoreau

“Bearing and nurturing,
Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding,
Controlling without authority,
This is love.”
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 10
This is love of a person, family and a formula for successful relationship and team building within any context.

Love never claims, it ever gives; love never suffers, never resents; never revenges itself. Where there is love there is life; hatred leads to destruction.”
Mahatma Ghandi
We strive to be/do this.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
…and love will come. Be open and accepting; it will find you.

You yourself, as much as anybody in the universe, deserve your love and affection.” The Buddha
Self love must come first and more will follow.

Why Coaching Now? http://www.balanceandpower/coaching.php
Coaching utilization is increasing because it is a cost effective means of achieving phenomenal results for individuals, teams and businesses. Organizations are asking, “Can we afford not to use coaches?”

A study of Fortune 1000 companies reported the following benefits from the coaching they received:
• An increase in productivity (by 53%)
• Increased customer service (by 39%)
• Increased retention of senior people (by 32%)
• Reduction in costs (by 23%)
• Increased bottom line profitability (by 22%)
The Xerox Corporation found that the impact of using follow-up coaching after formal training gave a massive 87% increase in the effectiveness of training when compared to training alone. One executive coaching firm found that coaching programs delivered an average return on investment of 5.7 times the initial investment in a typical executive coaching assignment.

Coaching has been so successful in the large corporations that it is now becoming more and more common in small companies, professional practices and start-ups.

What is it about coaching that’s so powerful?

Are you aware of self-fulfilling prophecies? We all have them. We get trapped in our comfort zones and we don’t know what we don’t know. The old adage goes, “If you always think what you’ve always thought, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.” Or, in other words, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.”

As a peak performance success coach, I help you challenge your own assumptions, see things from a different perspective, think outside your comfort zone. Then together we set goals for more productive behaviors and actions that will bring you better results. It’s practice and application. Common sense dictates that people don’t maintain the changes they make without practice and application. The coaching I offer is outcome based. You state your goals and we make them happen together. I hold you accountable for making progress.

Would this be a good gift for someone who is far away?
Absolutely, even if I am primarily located in the NY metropolitan areacan have coaching sessions with people all over the world by phone-internet.

There’s rarely ever a good time to take a vacation when you’re a small-business owner.That’s why many owners just don’t get away, or if they do, they end up taking long weekends or taking some free time.
