Captains Courageous coaching programs employ both an inside/out and outside/in approach to effecting greater personal awareness and lasting change. Our coaches will help you identify what is working and what is not in terms of your attitudes, belief systems and behavioral patterns. You will be supported to recognize available choices that you may never have noticed, and to design and integrate specific developmental action steps toward your highest and most noble goals and desires. As you take action, you will find your awareness expanding along with positive, productive changes in your life. The Captains Courageous approach to coaching requires commitment and courage – keeping in mind that the phrase “Captains Courageous” means “leaders with heart.” Read a sample coaching contract HERE.
Life Coaching Program
For individuals who want to make a quantum leap forward in their work and in their lives, this highly personalized and challenging program will help bring more balance into all areas of life, along with more meaning, joy, satisfaction and peace. The program will be designed specifically to meet your individual objectives and will include assessment, 10-12 coaching sessions, integration assignments between sessions, and ongoing reassessment and tracking of results. Unless you live on-island, you'll meet your coach online or via telephone, and you'll also have reasonable text or email access to your coach as needed.
Life coaching is intended to surface and challenge any of your assumptions and patterns that hold you back from your fullest experience of heart. As you focus on the nature of your heart, and the heart of your nature, change happens ... but usually not without a fight from the limitations that have been controlling you. Your coach will be there to assist, inspire and support you; but it is YOU who must step forward and take charge of your life. If you have that desire and the commitment, we are ready to stand with you.
Coaching Intensives are custom-designed to jump-start the Courageous Captain within you, using the sustained focus of coaching conversations and activities, interwoven with an island vacation that gives you time to test and integrate the learning and changes as they emerge. You will be called to a high level of mindfulness, not just in a sitting meditation, but in your moment-to-moment activities, conversations, and even daydreaming. You will be challenged to become more aware of your heart than ever before, and learn to bring your heart and/or head into cooperation. Your coaching intensive will be a 3- to 5-day immersion, custom-designed for you and the life you want to create.
If you're experiencing a gnarly issue, or you're wanting or facing a big change in your life or your response to your life, a Coaching Intensive may awaken the needed awareness and willingness to change.
Coaching Intensives are also ideal for couples who want to reconnect and bring their relationship to new levels of depth and commitment, or who want to start off their lives together on the right foot.
During your intensive, you may reside at one of our nearby resorts, or at the simple vacation rental apartment on our property, or aboard our sailboat making its way through the islands.
Intensive coaching intermingled with extensive fun - now THAT'S the way to take life seriously!
If you are challenged by issues such as increasing engagement, building trust, empowering teams that really work, creating a workplace atmosphere of respect and commitment, or experiencing higher levels of happiness, peacefulness and satisfaction in your worklife, you may be ready to bring out the Courageous Captain inside you. Your custom-designed program will entail highly challenging personal and professional development that will bring more heart to you, your staff and customers, and your family. The program will be designed specifically to meet your individual objectives and will include assessment, 10-12 coaching sessions, integration assignments between sessions, and ongoing reassessment and tracking of results. If desired and appropriate, colleagues and/or direct reports and or family members may be engaged in assessment, goal-setting and feedback. Unless you are on-island, you'll meet your coach online or via telephone, and you'll also have reasonable text or email access to your coach as needed.
By now, you know that no consultant, no 4-square model nor 5-step process is going to create the changes you want. It is you who must commit and you who must follow through. Your coach will be there to support and inspire you as you set your goals, take your steps, stumble and regroup, and come home to your heart.
Executive Coaching may be coupled with a Coaching Intensive for maximum and lasting impact.
For intact teams who want to maximize their effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction – not only in terms of results, but also processes, relationships, and individual contribution. Using the team’s current work on business objectives, your coach will facilitate the team’s real-time meetings while also providing stop-action coaching to help the team recognize and address processes and issues that impede effectiveness. The team will learn how to plan and conduct their collaborative interactions to maximize productivity and commitment, how to address conflict and turn it into creativity, and how to surface and address individual concerns that impede progress. Topic-specific learning sessions and individual coaching are provided as needed. Coaching is delivered via online interactive session.
Team Coaching is particularly effective as follow-through support after a Captains Courageous Business Adventure. Alternatively, your coach may work with your team onsite as a kick-off to the online coaching program.
