I did not find coaching, coaching found me . . .
It was several years ago when I was attending a powerful self-discovery workshop that I recognized my true calling. It happened when I witnessed life coaches supporting participants in their raw vulnerability endeavor to transform their lives and choose what they wanted for themselves, in some cases making such choices for the first time.
It started as a whisper, something inside telling me I was meant to do this. The soft murmur turned into a pronounced voice messaging what I could no longer ignore. It was then that I set out to learn from the best, the “mother of Life Coaching,” Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott. I earnestly pursued formal training and earned my coaching credential from the International Coaching Federation.
Let me introduce myself. I am Lynn Mailliard Kohler, wife, mother, stepmother, daughter, sister, and Life Coach. I am passionate about life and truly believe that everything is possible!
For many years I was a single mother working and raising two young daughters on my own. Along the way I have overcome my share of obstacles and have experienced loss.
I have spent 30+ years honing my craft as an Executive Assistant and “right hand” to CEOs and senior-level executives. Embracing this role has placed me on the front line of multiple industries and businesses, interacting professionally with people around the world. Looking beyond the present, thinking strategically, connecting the dots, listening to what is being said . . . and identifying what isn’t being said . . . are key skills needed to excel in this role.
At the core of this work has always been my desire to partner with individuals to help them achieve their objectives. What I know is I love to help people and when two of my greatest strengths -- intuition and critical thinking -- intersect, magic can happen!
As I look back, I realize in my life and work I have been coaching all along. I would love to have the opportunity to share with you all that is possible through coaching.
