The Top 10 Benefits My Coaching Clients Say They Receive

Definition of Coaching

  • Coaching: Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process
that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential
  • A professional coaching relationship: A professional coaching relationship exists when
coaching includes a business agreement or contract that defines the responsibilities of each party.
  • An ICF Professional Coach: An ICF Professional Coach also agrees to practice the ICF Professional
Core Competencies and pledges accountability to the ICF Code of Ethics.

In order to clarify roles in the coaching relationship, it is often necessary to distinguish between the client and
the sponsor. In most cases, the client and sponsor are the same person and therefore jointly referred to as the
client. For purposes of identification, however, the International Coach Federation defines these roles as follows:

  • Client: The "client" is the person(s) being coached.
  • Sponsor: The "sponsor" is the entity (including its representatives) paying for and/or arranging for
coaching services to be provided.

In all cases, coaching engagement contracts or agreements should clearly establish the rights, roles, and
responsibilities for both the client and sponsor if they are not the same persons.

From the Code of Ethics approved by the ICF Board of Directors on December 18, 2008.

1. You'll set far better goals that motivate you in a healthy way:



"One of the things I like best about Jim Vuocolo is his laugh.  I sometimes (often?) take life too seriously.  He’s helped me with that.  He has a way of asking questions that helps me look at my circumstances from another perspective, one that is lighter, not so serious.  His questions help me get un-stuck.  And his wonderful, accepting laugh reminds me that life is good... He’s a slave driver – the homework, the goal setting, the relentless questions to which he insists on having answers, the note-taking.  I am so grateful. These things all helped me learn to be a better, more focused problem-solver. And for every problem I presented, he somehow reached inside me to help me find my own solution.  


I came away from every coaching call feeling capable. We worked on priorities, balance, centering, boundaries, having plan B if plan A didn’t work out.  He suggested books to read, quoted sources, gave me comparable examples. Made me KNOW I was extremely competent and extremely capable, and with better focus and problem solving, I could be extremely successful.  What more could you want from a coach?!"


- Donna Bearden, Ph.D., Executive Director, Special Projects Evaluation, 
Dallas Independent School District

2. You'll accomplish goals and tasks and projects much more quickly:



"Without question if you do not want to change and (wish to) keep your life the same, do not hire James Vuocolo as your personal coach. Your life will change 
in such a way you won't even notice it at first. Three months later you will have changed  considerably. Main reason is that he cares. Second reason is he gets you laughing in the process which makes it very enjoyable along the way."


- Sam Lombardo, President of Work Life, Ohio

"You gave us all some fantastic new tools - and the fun part is, 
  I didn't expect it!"  


 - Dorothy Johnson, University of Redlands, CA 


3. You'll make fewer mistakes in your business and personal life:

"I am writing to thank you for the insight and focus your coaching has generated ... From the start, I was impressed with the Assessment Reports. They were strikingly accurate and saved us a lot of time in 'getting to know each other'. It 
is clear that they also enable you to provide coaching advise consistent with my motivations and personality. Whether you are offering guidance on work, team building, family relationships, time management, thesis writing, ADD or fee
negotiation, you have been supportive, direct, concise and practical. I am totally committed to the coaching process. I feel as though I have found in coaching a whole new resource.  More importantly, I have found the right coach.


- Trevor Thomas, T. L. Thomas & Co., A Tax Consultancy, 
    London, England (UK)



4. You'll move up to the next level of your professional and personal life:



"When the student is ready, the teacher appears!  From the time we ‘met’ Jim as our coaching instructor we knew we must have him as our coach.  Working with him for over a year has proven us so right.  Jim gets us!  He is a talented, caring, and slightly quirky coach. Jim keeps us on our toes, constantly encouraging us to stretch beyond our comfort zones both in business and personally.  Because of Jim’s coaching we are braver, more confident, more focused and have a lot more fun at our business.  Jim has led us to believe in our own coaching business by setting a true example of a coach that keeps evolving and intuiting the marketplace.  Thank goodness we have him out in front leading the way.  We couldn’t ask for a more successful combination: we found a coach, a mentor and a friend in Jim."
  

- Toby Silverton, PhD. & Bev McLagan, PhD., Silverton McLagan Coaching, London, England (UK)



"Jim is remarkably perceptive.  This trait demonstrates itself over and over in his coaching.  However, it is particularly noticeable when he invites complete expression by a client and then simultaneously constructs a space around this expressin that allows a re-framing of beliefs to take place. He creates breakthrough. In my case, his coaching allowed me to lasso my stampede of emotion, corral it, and "break" it into pieces that would work FOR me, rather than against me. Thanks Jim!"
  

- Cindy Draughton, Owner, IQ Rising Toys That Teach, North Carolina


5. You'll reduce the number of problems you now face and better resolve any challenges that remain:



"Eight months ago, I hired Jim as my personal coach to guide me through the struggles of building a small business. I expected to build a business, but got even more. Jim and I have gone down a path of greater self-awareness and personal growth. Jim’s philosophy takes a more holistic approach, and recognizes the interconnectedness of all parts of the individual’s life.  In my work with Jim, we have worked on incredibly diverse topics ranging everywhere from the marketing of my practice to exploring my own personal needs and boundaries.  We are steadily working toward my goal of owning a successful, small business, but more importantly Jim  has helped me to uncover my passions in life, to freely express them, and use them to enrich this world. My 
life and my world have expanded ten fold thanks to my work with Jim."
  

- Ann Zimmerman, Accountant, Kent, WA

"Do you always help other people as much as you've helped me?"
  

- Judy Scheller, Farm Bureau Insurance, WY (USA)

"Jim is a tremendous coach. He is very straightforward and direct, and these attributes are extremely helpful as one attempts to improve coaching effectiveness. He always has the knack of consistently helping you think and perceive things in new and meaningful ways, and that is the greatest compliment I could give any coach."
  

- Mario Casa de Calvo,  Winona, MN

6. You'll likely make more money in your career, profession or business because you'll be encouraged and supported in playing a bigger game:

"Thanks, Jim! For a 'clergy type' you've got some great head for business!"
  

- Bobette Reeder, Professional Coach, Miami, FL, Former President, ICF



"That was the best presentation of Organizational Development I've ever  seen!"
  

- Sheldon Montgomery, Retired Engineer, CA (USA)

"I have been working with Jim for two or three months now, and am already seeing some amazing changes. I have just begun my own coaching practice, 
and now have a budding enterprise - Jim helped me transform a practice of a handful of free clients into one with nearly ten paying ones in the space of eight weeks! He is terrifically warm, and has a great sense of humour. He has helped me to make great shifts in my thinking, freeing me up from old limiting beliefs. 
By putting myself in his hands, I have been able to get out of my own way, and achieve great things." 
  

- Aboodi Shaby - Holistic Life Coach,  London, England (UK)

 

7. You'll be a lot happier and this happiness will last:



"Jim, you have helped me get clearer on my vision, mission and purpose. You have provided impetus to organize my schedule. This has brought me regular exercise, a regular date night with my wife and space for myself I did not have before. You have helped me move ahead in my coaching practice.  This has been both in regard to coaching skills and strategies for promotion. Last, but 
not least, the clarification process we have engaged in together has enabled 
me to create a major shift in my chiropractic practice. Thanks for all these gifts!"  


- Dr. Mark Sanders, Chiropractor,  Austin, TX 

8. You'll be much more effective and influential with others - your family, business and personal relationships will thrive:

"Eight months ago, I hired Jim as my personal coach to guide me through the struggles of building a small business. I expected to build a business, but got even more. Jim and I have gone down a path of greater self-awareness and personal growth. Jim’s philosophy takes a more holistic approach, and recognizes the interconnectedness of all parts of the individual’s life. In my  
work with Jim, we have worked on incredibly diverse topics ranging everywhere from the marketing of my practice to exploring my own personal needs and boundaries.  We are steadily working toward my goal of owning a successful, small business, but more importantly Jim  has helped me to uncover my passions in life, to freely express them, and use them to enrich this world. 
My life and my world have expanded ten fold thanks to my work with Jim. 
Thanks Jim!"


- Ann Zimmerman, Accountant, Kent, WA

9. You'll become much more attractive to others -- from the inside, out:



"Probably the highest compliment I can give Jim Vuocolo is that, now, 
1 1/2 years later, it is hard for me to tease out his "value-added", it has 
become so much a part of me.  On the other hand, I notice that my 
relationships are working, sometimes brilliantly, despite huge strains on 
them.  I have a life plan/career path/contribute-to-the-world plan which is challenging, surprising, and exciting.  Financial planning until the end of 
my life is falling into place.  Most days I find myself at peace.  I even laugh 
a lot.   All this was very, very untrue 1 1/2 years ago. Do these words 
give you, the reader, a sense of  how astronomical this change   
has been and Jim's role in it? Thank you, Jim!"


- Tamsin Taylor, Seattle, WA 

10. You'll have a better life, not just a better lifestyle!



"My coaching relationship with Jim helped me find myself during a time of confusing change and substantial personal transformation. It's given me the power to leverage my weaknesses and emphasize my strengths while maintaining a sense of balance."

- Mia Marzullo, Tectura Corporation, Texas

"This letter is to recommend Dr. James S. Vuocolo to your organization as a professional coach and/or teleclass leader. 
I have observed Jim in several different professional and personal scenarios, i.e. as leader of a local faith community, as a former member of the local Chamber of Commerce, as a professional and personal coach, and as a teleclass leader (I took an 8 week teleclass from him last fall called, "It's My Turn!" which focused on self-care for busy professionals). I can also attest to the fact that Jim is very good as a coach. We meet periodically, and he has encouraged and supported me in everything from cleaning out the garage at home to delegating more to others at work. He also has provided a good deal of insight and value through professional DISC assessments and values tools... I know Jim to be a person of high integrity, energy and skills, whose coaching and leadership skills will be a valuable asset to most any organization of professional men and women. Thank you."


- Shirley Harry, VP  "Century 21" Lois Lauer Realty, Redlands, CA
