"What's really driving the boom in coaching, is this: as we move from 30 miles an hour to 70 to 120 to 180...as we go from driving straight down the road to making right turns and left turns to abandoning cars and getting on motorcycles...the whole game changes, and a lot of people are trying to keep up, learn how not to fall off."
John Kotter, Professor of Leadership

People seek out a coach for various reasons. It may be a business challenge or a personal challenge. The common denominator for anyone who enters into a coaching partnership is the value they place on personal development. People decide to hire a coach because they want to change, learn and transform themselves. They want to learn about why they make the choices they make, they want to grow and create new strategies for being successful.
Coaching is a collaborative process that has time limits and focused goals. Like its sports metaphor, coaching is about enhancing performance and about achieving results. As a coach, Linda Cohan helps her clients establish visions and goals for their business and personal lives, achieve success as they define it, and create balanced and fulfilling lives.
