You’re done! So, is coaching right for you? Count how many “A”s, “B”s, and “C”s you chose.
If you chose mostly “A”s: You’re probably not ready for coaching. If you’re unhappy with some aspect of your life, though, consider looking inward for your answers rather than outside of yourself.
If you chose mostly “B”s: It’s likely that you’d benefit from coaching. A complimentary coaching session could help you get a feel for what coaching is like and how much you’d enjoy it.
If you chose mostly “C”s: You were born to be coached! You’d probably find coaching as much fun as a trip to an ice cream stand on a hot summer day. I encourage you to enjoy a complimentary coaching session, on me. If coaching isn’t your cup of tea (or ice cream), no worries. There’s no obligation.
