TORONTO, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There is one very interesting thing that connects Oprah Winfrey to Thomas Edison to Barack Obama to Leonardo da Vinci. Each of these influential thinkers... have journaled regularly.
With this in mind, Frame of Mind Coaching, a company that specializes in coaching high-profile leaders, has come up with a new way to coach clients incorporating the tool of daily online journaling with weekly coaching calls. It is a method that challenges the traditional coaching model, a method that asks clients to record their thoughts in a secure online journal every day for 10 weeks in between calls with a coach.
Founder and President Kim Ades insists that client journals are essential to the coaching process. "Clients who journal move at a much more rapid rate than clients who don't," she said. "Coaching coupled with journaling is transformative because it exposes clients' unconscious and conscious beliefs that lead to each of their successes and failures."Frame of Mind Coaching offers a complimentary five-day leadership program to people who are interested in experiencing this journaling and coaching model. Users can request a Frame of Mind Coaching trial by taking an online assessment. Frame of Mind coaches review journals with their clients on every call to quickly unveil the thoughts, beliefs, expectations and motivations of their clients. Due to frequent contact and the depth of the exchange, a trusting relationship is quickly established between coaches and clients. Clients also benefit from the immediate and long-term physical and mental health benefits of journaling, including stress reduction and improved immune system functioning. "Emotional upheavals touch every part of our lives," said James W. Pennebaker, a psychology professor and pioneer in the field of writing therapy. "These things affect all aspects of who we are... Writing helps us focus and organize the experience." About Frame of Mind Coaching Frame of Mind Coaches operate on the belief that the only thing standing between a person and their success is their thinking.
