Coaching helps you open doors to the possiblities you want in your life. At The Affinity Center, we offer coaching to provide individual support that helps you stay on track to define and attain those goals you have for your life. Our coaching takes place in person, by email, and by phone–whatever works best for your busy life. We want to empower you to improve your performance and reach your goals by gaining knowledge and developing structures, strategies, and supports that work for you and the way you live.
Our coaching works with your strengths in a collaborative process. Coaching focuses on how well a particular area in your life is working for you (and the people around you). It works because you suddenly are not alone but become part of a team that is set up to help ask the tough questions that have to be examined if you are going to see the changes you want so badly. And YOU are the team’s director because you set the goals! We help you brainstorm and look at what-if scenarios, developing–right beside you–possible solutions and strategies. You provide your strengths and critical observations of yourself and your life to the process; The Affinity Center brings its team of professionals who understand behavior and regularly meet to problem-solve an array of issues to this effort. We’ll plan, discuss, re-evaluate, and adjust strategies and supports with you, testing the team’s ideas, because an untested “solution” really isn’t a solution. During this collaborative process, you’ll be gaining self-awareness abou the choices you’ve been making and their impact on your life and all the people whose lives you touch–friends, family, and perhaps your business associates. You’ll gain experience making better-informed decisions. You’ll feel how these decisions empower you, making you more effective, more efficient, and, we believe, even more inspired and energized to open new doors on a world of fresh possibilities.
Our coaching focuses on a variety of areas, including, but not limited to:
• managing time
• setting priorities
• organizing–from drawers and backpacks to rooms and households
• succeeding academically–for all ages and levels
• handling procrastination
• balancing life
• identifying and exploring various avenues for personal growth
• developing interpersonal skills
