Personal Coaching

Are you trying to resolve a key question in your life?

Do you need help:

  • Making decisions and taking risks?
  • Improving your performance at work?
  • Eliminating roadblocks that stop you from taking steps toward a goal?
  • Determining “what’s next” in your life?
  • Growing your career or making a transition?
  • Managing change at home or at work?

Personal coaching helps you discover new ways of thinking about yourself and others. Learn the tools, practice the skills and gain the confidence you need to go where you want to go next.

Meet Rhonda Reagh

I’m an advanced, certified personal coach who can help you identify your strengths and realize your true potential

During my 30-plus years in social services administration, I helped people at all levels navigate their way through many of life’s toughest challenges. So I’m hard-wired to treat you with dignity, listen with empathy and respond with honesty. My style is low-key and non-judgmental.

A licensed independent social worker since 1980, I coach from a foundation of social work knowledge, steeped in years of experience working in public agencies and nonprofit organizations and with the diverse populations they serve. My willingness to be vulnerable throughout my career – and take calculated risks – led to creativity and innovation. Asking “What if?” and “Why not?” inspired new visions, encouraged collaboration and led to lasting change for individuals, leaders, teams and entire organizations.

As your personal coach, I can help you learn to understand yourself and others so you can better manage yourself and your relationships. Your starting point is more self-awareness – and more self-confidence.

Read more about Rhonda Reagh, an Advanced Certified Personal and Executive Coach (ACPEC) through the College of Executive Coaching. The college teaches an assessment-based professional coaching process adapted from the Center for Creative Leadership, one of the early pioneers in executive coaching. The college’s Certified Personal and Executive Coach program has been accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).

How we’ll work together

Because I believe a good coach is a good facilitator, we begin where you are.

  • You’ll take one or more assessments to determine your focus, identify specific issues and lead the way for personal coaching.
  • You’ll set the agenda to create the change you want.
  • You’ll decide how you want to be held accountable.

We’ll work together as equals. And we’ll build a foundation of trust. During confidential coaching sessions, we’ll discuss what has gone well – and what hasn’t – and what you want to work on next.

Along the way, you’ll learn new tools that will teach you how to think about or handle situations in different ways. As you practice using these tools, you’ll take risks, gain skills and learn lessons. By discovering what works – and what doesn’t – you’ll be ready to tackle the next question or challenge on your personal agenda.

Your agenda can change overnight or over time. When it does, we’ll adapt our coaching sessions to exactly what you need, when and where you need it.

Coaching sessions can be weekly, biweekly, monthly or quarterly, with “tune-ups” as requested. We can meet face-to-face, by phone or through video calls on Skype – whatever you prefer. You’ll get email support (and even a little homework) between sessions.

What you can expect from me

I will: 

  • Help you peel back the layers of discovery by drawing on my experience in social work and my understanding of human behavior
  • Ask provocative questions to ignite your thinking
  • Listen and help you self-assess when you are at a pivotal point in your decision-making
  • Help you find the humor in certain situations and look at yourself objectively, which leads to new revelations
  • Encourage you to be vulnerable and take risks
  • Challenge you to use your new tools and practice your new skills so you can grow

What will change for you?

You will:

  • Become more aware of yourself and others so you can better manage yourself and your relationships
  • Discover your strengths so you can use them to make changes in your life
  • Come up with a personal plan for change that considers the unique dynamics of your environment at home or at work
  • Develop self-confidence so you can go where you want to go

Personal coaching helped my clients make changes like these:

  • Jim never had the courage to ask for what he needed. Now he puts his real needs into words and shares them with others.
  • Elaine always procrastinated, so she never achieved her goals. Now she’s developed reasonable goals and is on task to accomplish them.
  • Because Sam was afraid to fail, he ignored his lifelong dream to own a business. Now he’s executing a plan to become an entrepreneur.
  • Joanie never had the opportunity to use her creativity. Now she’s keeping an art journal, which she integrates into her coaching experiences.
  • Fear made Patti avoid new situations. Now she’s attending a women’s group with people she had never met before.

Personal coaching is a journey with many destinations along the way. So let’s begin!
