"At the end of 2010, I begin feeling like I needed a life coach to help me grow and move forward with my goals and dreams. I had reviewed many websites and listened to interviews of several coaches nationwide but I still hadn't found the right coach for me. I needed someone who was knowledgeable in the areas of creativity, spirituality, business and relationships. I knew I was looking for a lot in one person but I also knew that if I could seek such a person, they had to exist. They say when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. This was the case with me. I put out the call on Twitter and much to my surprise, Dan responded. At first I was skeptical but after speaking with him for an hour during the trial session, I knew that he was a good match for me. Dan is well educated in human behavior and has years of experience in working with people. When I spoke, he listened and instead of providing answers to my questions, he used questioning techniques to encourage me to derive the answers using my own thought processes. His coaching style continuously proved to me that the answers I seek are already inside of me. Coaching with heart, truly is a suitable name for his practice. He speaks from the heart and listens without judgment. I couldn't have asked for a better coach. Thank you Dan. D.R"
What is Coach with HEART? It is a coaching practice that is geared to helping individuals create for themselves their ideal future. While “ideal” might sound a stretch that is what we aim for, what we seek. We seek the best that we can. I work with my clients so they can become confident in themselves. My clients will obtain a set of skills that will last a lifetime. I work with people who desire something better, something that says “I was here and I mattered”. I work with ADHD/ADD adults who are competing in a world where 94% of the people don't understand what ADHD is. About 4-6% of the adult population experiences the impact of ADD/ADHD in their lives.
Some ADHD individuals just want to do better and coaching is one of the most effective long lasting processes a person can use. It does work and it makes a difference especially to those who have difficulty focusing on the “right” thing to do. ADHD/ADD can be frustrating and at the same time ADHD/ADD people are among the most intelligent people there are. They are typically very creative, idea centric, learners and have a vivid exciting imagination. Many have an abundance of energy and their clock is going all of the time. Some may appear to be withdrawn and less energetic yet their mind is popping with ideas (only if they could focus on a few of them).
The HEART in coach with HEART stands for Humility, Encouragement, Acknowledgment, Relationships and Trust. That is what my coaching story is about. It is about releasing your potential, your gifts and restoring that confidence that got lost somewhere in the past. You have the ability to make a difference and with a coach you can.
