Tiger Woods Has Won
That’s not news.
Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people's criticisms, carry out your plan. -Paul Meyer
THE BREAKING STORY BEHIND THE NEWS IS THAT HE HAS WON AGAIN BECAUSE HE HAS A COACH BOTH IN LIFE AND ON THE GOLF COURSE. THE FACT IS TIGER WOODS IS AN EXPERT GOLFER AND HE STILL NEEDS A COACH.
Of course, I have a coach too. I have known Shalini Verma for at least 2 years now. She is my coach in New Delhi India and has my utmost respect as a mentor. She never tells me what to do, her greatest skill is in getting me to articulate options so that I can make an intelligent decision. Issues in my life and business are discussed and evaluated before I act. It has helped me avoid a number of potentially negative situations in my life.
She is a Success Coach with a high degree of non-judgmental empathy, her favorite saying is that success is not a destination but a journey and she is willing to walk that journey with her clients. Her company, the Skyscrapers Academy partners with individuals/organizations to develop leaders and employees to achieve more success and satisfaction in both their personal and professional lives.
With a primary focus on leadership development, strengthening business relationships, conflict management, team building she act as a catalyst for change when performance requires a tune-up, turn-around or new focus. Like I said before she has become more than just a coach but a mentor guiding many of the decisions I have made with respect to my life and business.
She is the founder of the Skyscrapers Academy which uses the Co-Active Coaching Methodolgy to help her clients become more effective leaders and collaborators. Her intensive approach involves assessment and observation to increase self-awareness and self-understanding. This allows for behavior change, personal growth and effective performance both at the individual and team level. Check out her Relationship Blog
A member of The International Coach Federation and International Coach Academy, Australia, at present she is also serving as Onboard Coach at Midcareers.com to assist mid-career professionals redefine success, identify their ‘unique strengths’, and create more focus, vitality, and passion in their work. She has recently attained a distinguished and coveted accreditation as a Certified Associate Coach
Success is never accomplished alone. You need a coach too. Success “is a journey” a guide always helps. Get a coach, a mentor someone you can trust. If not Shalini Verma anyone you feel comfortable with and is qualified to guide you. Do it today.
There are a couple of reasons I have maintained my coaching relationship with Shalini Verma. First, in my opinion she is eminently qualified but more important is the trust I have built up over this short space of time. Secondly, she was willing to work out an exceptional deal for me and offer her professional coaching at a faction of what I would pay for a face to face coach.
I would recommend Shalini Verma to anyone looking to take themselves to the next level of personal success and professional development. Her first session is always free and you will never have to pay phone charges to India.
Thank you for reading.
