What is coaching?
You have heard so much about what coaching is but…with me as your guide, it is about you, your dreams, your specific problems that you are so ready to change and let go of. Maybe you feel anxious, gloomy or pessimistic, self-doubts, stuck, want to move forward, yet you just can't get moving. With coaching, moving through these issues happens easily, effortlessly, and simply.
I invite you to work together, partner together, and offer to help you be where you want to be in your life. Your relationships will improve: work colleagues, your clients, your love partner, your best friend, your children, even your family members. Maybe you want to tell one of these people what you are thinking about – or -- here’s the biggie – what you feel……BUT you already have their response in your head...they might want to change your mind, tell you you're wrong, give advice. I teach you an easy way to manage your conversations with each other, so the best outcome is already taken care of, without you being the instructor of HOW TO TALK TO EACH OTHER. Learn to ask for what you need and what you will give to the other person, BEFORE you even begin your conversation. Learn simple and easy ways to LISTEN to each other.
Let's you and I take some time and talk about what you want so you can get you where you want to be! We find emotional issues or blocks and we assist them to dissolve. Maybe you want to let go of some weight, have better health habits, or improve your relationships. With a good solid plan to keep you on track, you and I move you forward. Remember, I call my website Forward Action Coach for a good reason. Maybe hollering at your children is something you want to stop, maybe have good communication and respect in your home, maybe move up in your job, maybe resolve those "yes buts'' (these are the words we quietly say to ourselves when we think of having what we want) ....thoughts that have kept you from moving forward. You know what you want and would love a boost, a guide, a partner… a Coach! ME!
Hi, I'm Nancy Polites. I have a deep respect for your unique differences that make you who you are. You and I will work together as a team. We’ll develop a tailored approach for you to resolve your life issues, minor and major. We do this in a confidential atmosphere, either in person or on the phone. You have a sense of safety that allows you to express your innermost desires and dreams. Together we face the blocks or stuck places that have kept your limiting beliefs about yourself in charge when you didn’t want them to be! Then you are in a position to heal and grow into who you were truly meant to be! This reflects my philosophy about helping people. I am passionate about the time I spend with you and will advocate for you to move forward, take action and to be your very best… In my practice, I have worked in many different settings including hospitals for children and adults, home health agencies, hospice, adult drug and alcohol recovery, adult day health centers and corporate environments.

Take a look at Bob and Sally...
"This stuff really works!" That was Bob, bursting with enthusiasm, plunk in the middle of our recent marriage session. My calm comment, "I know," said it all. I do know how remarkable it was for him. And for all other couples I have coached. I was coaching Bob and his wife, Sally, through their calm and respectful conversation. Raised voices were absent, sarcastic tones gone. Just a few weeks ago, their 33-year marriage was close to ending. And today.... after learning (practicing) how to talk with each other, how to listen to each other...a renewed desire for clear communication emerged. Feeling safe with each other, they moved forward to a gentle respect and understanding. "Touchy" topics were initiated easily. True connection between the two of them returned.
