Our Philosophy

for Personal & Organizational Effectiveness


Coaching is about you, what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it. It focuses on where you are now, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there. Although past history may be helpful in understanding your present situation, we won’t focus on understanding or healing the past. It’s all about creating a better future – both personally and professionally.
Focused Solutions believes we all can find the best answers for ourselves but that sometimes we are too close to a situation to see those answers clearly. We may need objective feedback and limited but focused assistance to move forward. We endeavor to treat each client as a unique individual, customizing our approach to accommodate their natural strengths and weaknesses and the specific goals they wish to achieve.
The role of a coach is to listen, give you honest and well-timed feedback, help you look at situations from another point of view, achieve clarity about and clearly articulate your goals, explore options, or provide suggestions and resources in support of your goals. You make the decisions and accept responsibility for the outcomes. We are here to support your progress on the way to success. Together, we can:

  • Clarify your current situation
  • Explore possible alternatives
  • Choose a course of action
  • Plan your best strategies
  • Articulate measurable goals
  • Collaborate to identify and access resources
  • Inspire progress
  • Achieve results!

We do not provide therapy. If we believe there could be psychological issues standing in the way of making progress in the coaching process, we will suggest that you consider engaging the services of a licensed mental health professional.
We respect your privacy. What you tell us will remain confidential, unless you authorize us to share information. Our only expectations are that you will keep scheduled appointments, make a sincere effort to move toward your goals, pay our fees in a timely manner, and give us feedback on what works (or doesn’t) for you.
Your satisfaction with our services is important to us. Therefore, you may cancel our coaching relationship at any time.


If you are looking for answers, we can also play the role of consultant. While we always respect that you are the decision-maker, we are capable of quickly assessing a situation and making strong recommendations.
Whether acting as coach or consultant, we keep your best interests in mind and refer you to other professionals as required. Our business grows primarily because of referrals from satisfied customers.
