- What is coaching?
Coaching is a technology of personal and professional development based on concepts from sports, business, spirituality, psychology and organizational development. It’s for passionate people who want more from their personal and business lives. A coach helps them set larger, more rewarding goals, develop a strategy to achieve them and provide support throughout the process. It’s not unlike having a personal trainer or an athletic coach… transformational, but in a business and personal sense. The achievement of goals is something that comes more quickly as a result of the coaching partnership.
- Why does coaching work?
Coaching works when there are two factors present: 1) The client is willing to grow, and 2) There is a gap between where they are now and where they want to be. Successful coaching clients know the value of sharing ideas with someone who understands them and is willing to source them to succeed. This is accomplished through planning, accountability, consulting, challenging and listening. Coaching works because of three unique features: SYNERGY: Client and coach become a team, focusing on the client”s goals and needs and accomplishing more than the client would alone. STRUCTURE: With a coach, the client takes more actions, thinks bigger and gets the job done, thanks to the accountability the coach provides. EXPERTISE: The coach knows how to help people make better decisions, set the best goals, develop new skills for communicating and restructure their professional and personal lives for maximum productivity
- Where do you start with a coach?
Most coaches begin with a special client meeting or call to get to know each other. The coach wants to hear about the client’s goals, needs, and problems. The client wants to get comfortable with the coach. During this meeting, both parties design a list of goals and a game plan to reach these goals.
- How do the coaching sessions work?
Coaching is usually done over the phone. In addition to allowing frequent, regular contact, it makes it easy to stay in the “coaching relationship”, since the client can call from their office, home, car or hotel. The person coached completes a coaching call strategy form prior to each call, describing the current challenges and the progress they’ve made since the last call. Coaching sessions vary according to individual needs from 1 hour sessions per week to more or less. The focus of the call is determined by the client. The coach helps them to solve the problems and make the most of the opportunities. When they are missing a principle or distinction, we help bring it to clarification. When they are taking on a large goal, we help them design a system for winning. We bring out the clients best by offering advice, guidance, helping them strategize and celebrating the wins. There is often “fieldwork”, where the client is given a formula, new perspective or a challenge to try something in a new way. That forms the basis for the next call.
- What happens when you begin a contract with a coach?
You take yourself and what you want more seriously.
You take more effective and focused actions immediately.
You stop putting up with obstacles that get in your way.
You create momentum to achieve more, be more balanced and develop more powerful management skills.
You set personal goals that are clear and meet your needs.
You identify and eliminate the barriers that get in the way of the achievement of goals.
You communicate about your needs more effectively
- How can a Manager/Executive use a coach?
Coaching creates an environment where there is freedom from judgment and freedom from expectations that executive behave according to typical corporate mandates. In this environment it is safe to question, to appear vulnerable, to observe, to explore, experiment, to learn and change.
That allows the executive to use the coach…
…To reach high targets and quotas. Accomplishing this consistently requires a manager who also coaches a team to work together to reach extraordinary goals.
…For business planning, budgeting and goal-setting.
…To integrate business and personal life for balance.
…To prioritize actions and projects.
…For training, developing and managing staff. …To turn around a difficult situation.
…To handle business or personal problems.

- Why should I use Fran Asaro and Thrive Any Way instead of hiring another coach?
Choosing a Coach is a very personal decision. Some people are looking for an aggressive coach to ‘whip them into shape’. Fran Asaro is a gentle coach who is committed to ‘love people to wellness’ as she calls it. She feels we are all hard enough on ourselves and we don’t need to pay someone else a lot of money to be harder. Her clients are heard saying that she gives them permission to be themselves fully. A gift for anyone searching for an authentic, joyful life.
Fran has a very special ability to align with her client’s needs. She is more attached to your joy and love of your life than the actual path you choose. So she won’t be making sure you stick to your original plan if that has changed. She is very flexible and easy to work with and yet produces great results because her clients end up building their own muscle instead of the ones she wants them to have.
