Welcome to Life Coaching/Leadership Coaching.
Hello. We're Bill and Robin Shearer and our lifelong mission is facilitating growth and change in others. Mindful Choices Training has proven to be an ideal vehicle for personal transformation to well-being, and the perfect coaching tool.
Several years ago we developed two programs for transformational change. We call our method "Mindful Choices Therapy" for behavioral and mental health issues, and "Mindful Choices Training" for life coaching, coaching for well-being, and executive coaching/leadership development.
This website is devoted to Mindful Choices Training and our coaching services. For information on "Therapy," go to www.calmchoices.com. The difference between "Training" and "Therapy" lies in the fact that therapy involves mental health issues, a mental health diagnosis, and health insurance. Training on the other hand, is about life coaching, coaching for well-being, executive coaching and leadership development. Health insurance and a diagnosis do not apply. Should our coaching clients require medical or mental health services we will refer to qualified healthcare professionals.
Central to our programs is training in mindfulness skills, systematic training in moment-to-moment self-awareness, a vital component in making lasting changes. You can't change anything you're not aware of, and most people lack awareness as to the extent their emotions and habits dictate their choices. The "choices" part of Mindful Choices Training Refers to the fact that moment by moment, we all have Choices in how we respond, and we can learn to respond consistently with awareness and emotional intelligence – in the "now," in the present moment. The "Training" part of Mindful Choices Training refers to the systematic development of solid positive habits leading to optimal well-being and personal mastery.
Life coaching is a really efficient way to step back and systematically question and challenge your own assumptions, figure out what your life is really about, and have more balance and enjoyment. It's about getting clear on what you want, rather than what others want for your or from you. It's finding meaning in your life.
Executive coaching/leadership coaching is about dramatically improving managerial and leadership skills. It's about achieving excellence in people skills. It's about self-awareness and self-management, social skills, and teambuilding skills. It's about having great communication. It's about fast-tracking your career path.
Through numerous assessments and structured dialogue with your coach, you'll be able to focus mindfully on the areas of your life that need the most attention, remove roadblocks, and live your best life free of barriers such as procrastination or lack of confidence.
Our goal is to help you re-imagine your life and let go of thoughts and behaviors that undermine you, so that a renewed and fulfilled you can emerge. With extensive experience in Life Coaching and a vast history of client success, our individualized approach will help you attain your goals.
