Welcome . . . My name is Carol Solomon

As a personal and professional coach, I can partner with you to create the results you want. With more than 25 years experience in helping people find solutions and make life changes, I have learned how to connect with people in a respectful, down-to-earth style that gets results.

I have always been interested in using new and effective ways to inspire confidence in people and help them take strategic steps from where they are now to where they want to be. People who hire coaches report greater life satisfaction, higher productivity, less stress and more fun.

I have had the privilege of working with many people who have changed their lives in a profound way as a result of being listened to and encouraged to optimize their strengths and abilities.

Coaching is not about sitting around analyzing the past—it’s about finding solutions and taking action. 

It's kind of like having a personal trainer for your life.

Every successful person knows how important it is to get an outside perspective—to have someone in your life who will be objective and tell you the truth. If you knew you had just the right amount of structure and support to perform at your best, what could you accomplish? 

In a coaching relationship, you benefit from my experience and resources working to help you. We will examine what’s working in your life and what’s not, set goals, prioritize actions and set up a system to monitor progress. 

We will develop a creative environment in which problems can be solved and you can move rapidly toward your goals. I will listen to your situation, make requests and challenge you to expand your thinking—you decide what actions to take and how to proceed.

Coaching works because of increased accountability and focus as well as the power of the relationship between coach and client. Coaching helps you stretch your ideas as well as your actions, so that you generate more effective strategies than you would on your own. At the same time, you identify and minimize areas of your life that are draining your energy, such as difficult relationships, pressured environments and recurring problems.

How Does Coaching Work?

Coaching typically occurs on the phone, making it much easier and more convenient for you to simply talk to me from the privacy of your home or office rather than drive to an office appointment. 

I offer a complimentary initial consultation and free email backup between weekly phone calls so that the ideas and seeds that have been planted resonate for the entire week, not just during the coaching session. 

I look forward to talking with you soon.
