Why Choose a Life Coach?
Clients come to coaching for a lot of reasons:
- Feeling stuck in a job, a relationship, a place
- Overwhelm – “My plate is too full.”
- I’ve lost my voice – I don’t speak up or speak out when I want to.
- I need change. I want something more. Is this all there is? What more is possible for me?
- Change is looming and I’m scared … an empty nest, retirement, parenting, a different job.
- I want to thrive in my business and things are stale.
- I can’t stick with the goals I aspire to!
- I’ve been promoted – YIKES! I’m in over my head!
What Sets Coaching Apart?
Coaching differs from counseling or therapy. As a client, you identify what is and isn’t working in your life. Your coach helps you focus on what you want to change and on goals you want to achieve.
Your coach asks powerful questions to help you identify your passions and brainstorm ideas to aim you in directions you want to go. She taps into your innate creativity and resourcefulness!
As equal partners, you and your coach look forward. You identify your strengths, knowledge and support systems. You dissect past successes and use those experiences to propel forward. Your coach helps you choose a path that’s right for you. She champions you to stay the course and reach your goals.
Rather than “fixing you” or diagnosing problems, your coach asks powerful questions to help you identify your passions; and brainstorm ideas to aim you in the direction you want to go.
Together, as equal partners, you and your coach look forward. Together you identify your strengths, knowledge and support systems. You dissect past successes and use your experience to propel you forward. You make a plan and choose the leap you want to take! Your coach champions you to stay on the path and reach your goals.
How Does Coaching Work?
Coaching is a series of confidential conversations that happen weekly or bi-weekly. Assignments and challenges keep you focused between sessions.
Group coaching offers the experience and impact of coaching in the comfort and camaraderie of a close-knit group of peers with common concerns and goals. Cost is shared among participants.

Brett, Individual Coaching Client
“The Strength Finder session you provided Blandin Forestry enabled us to not only understand ourselves and each other but empowered us with tools to help us function better as a team. You designed exercises that allowed us to explore our own strengths, and to learn about those strengths that we don’t possess. A month after the training, we still discuss our strengths and have come to recognize the value each of us provides to the team. This training was well worth it! We appreciate it.”
Cheryl Adams, Blandin Forestry, StrengthsFinder Workshop
“Our experiences working with Life Song Coaching were very positive. Group sessions were very helpful for employees to interact with one another, learning about themselves and each other. Learning about different profiles of human behavior helps everyone better understand each other and why we tend to respond differently to same circumstances.”
Garrett Ous, Itasca County Land Department, Leadership Development Series
