Location:  Osterville Village Library
Contact:  
Description:  

Have you heard of this thing called coaching? Do you assume coaching is like therapy? Or it is someone telling you what to do?  Well it’s NEITHER of those things! 

 

Coaching is a partnership that takes you from point A to point B by tapping into YOUR brilliance.  And, if you don’t know what point B is for you, coaching can help you define that, too.

 

Would you like to know more?  Come and learn from Helen Kosinski, Professional Certified Coach and owner of Better Than Ever Coaching.  She will:

Clarify what coaching is and is not
  • Share the benefits of working with a coach

  • Help you decide if coaching is for you

  • Answer your questions about coaching

  • Do a short coaching demonstration give a taste of what coaching really is

 

What’s with the Horses? 
There are some very special horses right here on Cape Cod who can help be part of your coaching team!  Partnering with Helen AND a horse can really get you moving forward fast!  (She is sorry the horses won’t be joining her this evening; however, she will explain how horses can support the coaching process!)

Giddy Up: How Coaching & Horses Get You Moving Forward Fast

Have you heard of this thing called coaching? Do you assume coaching is like therapy? Or it is someone telling you what to do?  Well it’s NEITHER of those things! 

 

Coaching is a partnership that takes you from point A to point B by tapping into YOUR brilliance.  And, if you don’t know what point B is for you, coaching can help you define that, too.

 

Would you like to know more?  Come and learn from Helen Kosinski, Professional Certified Coach and owner of Better Than Ever Coaching.  She will:

Clarify what coaching is and is not
  • Share the benefits of working with a coach

  • Help you decide if coaching is for you

  • Answer your questions about coaching

  • Do a short coaching demonstration give a taste of what coaching really is

 

What’s with the Horses? 
There are some very special horses right here on Cape Cod who can help be part of your coaching team!  Partnering with Helen AND a horse can really get you moving forward fast!  (She is sorry the horses won’t be joining her this evening; however, she will explain how horses can support the coaching process!)  

 

Be sure to register for this fun, educational and interactive presentation, held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 10am to 11am at the Osterville Village Library
