Level 5 Value Statement
At Level 5, we start from the premise that you already possess all of the tools required for skillful living. Coaching simply helps you discover, apply, and use these tools within your life more effectively.
At Level 5, we use the ICF definition of coaching. We approach coaching as a one-on-one, structured process that focuses on maximizing personal and professional potential.
Coaching is a confidential, structured dialog characterized by risk-taking, introspection, and learning that is designed to enhance the quality and skillfulness of the client's relationship with Self and others - resulting in personal and professional growth.
Seeing is the critical first step to growth. What we pay attention to grows.
A significant part of coaching involves cultivating a relationship with the client that is grounded in trust, mutual respect, and shared responsibility. The coaching environment supports and encourages experimentation, curiosity, honesty, and growth.
Stimulated awareness and growth – of personal ambitions, values, beliefs, blind spots, natural talents, and how our minds inform all of these – will help you achieve significantly greater effectiveness in all aspects of your life.
