1 on 1 Coaching

My process and approach are very simple. You and I will have a conversation where we’ll be taking steps to identify ways of thinking that prevent from allowing you to move forward.  We’ll identify those thoughts and actions that are most important to address right now, as well as identify steps that hinder your progress.

Some steps may include identifying your limiting beliefs – what I call the “tar” stuck in your filter between your thoughts and the real world.  We will walk through your thought processes the identify things that heavily influence you such as your culture and childhood. Through these transformational steps and conversations, your limiting beliefs will either be eliminated or dramatically.

Another step you will take/learn is a type of detachment where you’ll be able to walk away from the individual who encourages you to go in the wrong direction, and learn to simply determine your own course.  This detachment step can be very freeing and is a big part of your transformative steps. In order to make the steps stick, we will also work with your habits and processes that work best for you.

We will repeat this steps as often as necessary. After several transformative steps, you will have some real clarity and we will work together to create your transformative steps going forward. With these weights removed, you will then have the tools to address anything life places in front of you. These steps, if practiced, will become as natural breathing.  The sky really is the limit once you take the right steps and cut yourself free.


FAQ

  • Misconceptions

    If you ask anyone what a coach is, they will have a different answer with different situations and circumstances. My style is thoughtful, direct and straight to the point. I don't believe that one strategy fits all. If you could peak into my day, when I'm not assisting clients, I'm developing techniques that will assist and help my clients. Regardless to your background, I will develop a plan that will work for you. 

  • Emotional

    Are we going to talk about your emotions and things that make you emotional.  The short answer is, it depends.  If that is something that is hindering you from being a success, then yes we will.   If the road block you are experiencing causes you to cry, are we going to sit and cry together? Probably not, but we will identify road blocks that are hindering you and are triggering your emotions which are holding you back. We will identify them and create a strategy to address and overcome them.  Bottom line, I will help you achieve the goal that we define as part of your plan.

  • What if it doesn't work?

    During our first (free) initial consultation together, I will not be focused on getting another client. It’s an opportunity for me to see if you are coachable and to determine if we would be able to work together. If you are coachable, we will see results. How quickly that happens depends mostly on the goal plan that we develop, to assist you in getting to your goal. The coaching conversation can get very uncomfortable, but transformation doesn’t happen in your comfort zone, it requires you to take steps which could be challenging.

  • You have something to say?

    We will normally meet once a week for about an (1) hour. You can also say things in an unlimited fashion by sending me emails. If something is unclear from a previous session or you want to share a “success” that only I, your coach will understand, feel free to share anytime 24-7. I will answer all communications within 24 hours Monday through Friday. Also you should expect some “homework” assignments between sessions.  Some assignments will require you to write or email while other homework may require you to take action.

Little Known Black History Fact

  • Sarah Boone - 1892

    Sarah Boone-1892

    Invented Improved Ironing Board
    The ironing board is a product that’s used possibly just as much as it’s overlooked. In the late 19th century, it was improved upon by Sarah Boone, an African-American woman who was born a slave. One of the first black women in U.S. history to receive a patent, she expanded upon the original ironing board, which was essentially a horizontal wooden block originally patented in 1858. With Boone’s 1892 additions, the board featured a narrower and curved design, making it easier to iron garments, particularly women’s clothing. Boone’s design would morph into the modern ironing board that we use today.

  • Co-Invented Home Security System
    Before security systems became a fixture in homes, an African-American nurse Mary Van Brittan Brown, devised an early security unit for her own home. She spent many nights at home alone in Queens, New York while her husband was away, and felt unsafe with high rates of crime in her neighborhood. On top of that, police were unreliable and unresponsive. So she created a device that would help put her mind at ease.

  • Garrett Morgan - 1923

    Garrett Morgan - 1923

    Invented The Three-Light Traffic Light
    With only an elementary school education, black inventor (and son of a slave), Garrett Morgan came up with several significant inventions, including an improved sewing machine and the gas mask. However, one of Morgan's most influential inventions was the improved traffic light. Without his innovation, drivers across the nation would be directed by a two-light system.

  • Invented Refrigerated Trucks, Invented by Frederick McKinley Jones in 1940
    If your refrigerator has any produce from your local grocery store, then you can credit African-American inventor Frederick McKinley Jones. Jones took out more than 60 patents throughout his life, including a patent for the roof-mounted cooling system that’s used to refrigerate goods on trucks during extended transportation in the mid-1930s. He received a patent for his invention in 1940, and co-founded the U.S. Thermo Control Company, later known as Thermo King. The company was critical during World War II, helping to preserve blood, food and supplies during the war.

    Invented Automatic Elevator Doors
    The use of elevators in everyday life keeps people from committing to long and grueling climbs up several flights of stairs. However, before the creation of elevator doors that close automatically, riding a lift was both complicated and risky.
    Before automatic doors, people had to manually shut both the shaft and elevator doors before riding. Forgetting to do so led to multiple accidents as people fell down elevator shafts. When the daughter of African-American inventor Alexander Miles almost fatally fell down the shaft, he took it upon himself to develop a solution. In 1887 he took out a patent for a mechanism that automatically opens and closes elevator shaft doors and his designs are largely reflected in elevators used today.

  • Co-Invented Electret Microphone
    Even for those who aren’t quick to pick up the mic during karaoke, microphones are used every day to communicate over distances far and wide. And more than 90 percent of the microphones used today, including the microphones used in phones and cameras, use a microphone co-invented by a black man. Dr. James E. West was tasked with creating a more sensitive and compact microphone while working at Bell Labs in 1960.

    Invented Carbon Light Bulb Filament
    The light bulb itself was invented by Thomas Edison, but the innovation used to create longer-lasting light bulbs with a carbon filament came from African-American inventor Lewis Latimer. Latimer, the son of runaway slaves, began work in a patent law firm after serving in the military for the Union during the Civil War. He was recognized for his talent drafting patents and was promoted to head draftsman, where he co-invented an improved bathroom for railroad trains.

  • Co-Invented Color IBM PC Monitor and Gigahertz Chip
    Before flat screens and hi-definition LCD monitors were the norm, PC displays were limited to screens with no color that were tethered to computers with limited processing power. That all changed thanks to black inventor and engineer Mark Dean. Dean began working for IBM as a chief engineer in the early 1980s, making up a team of 12 people who would develop the first IBM PC. In addition to helping create IBM’s original machine in his early years with the company, he also worked to develop the color monitor and led the team that developed the first gigahertz processor. The massive chip, built in 1999, would allow for for higher processing rates at faster speeds within PCs.
