IS COACHING SIMILAR TO CONSULTING?

Coaching requires developing the client's abilities to solve a problem themselves using a wide range of tools, such as goal setting and accountability. However, consulting involves helping the client solve their problems. This can be in the form of training or other collaborative exercises. Dr. Tara Reed has the experience and ability to do both! Depending on your individual, organization or group needs we will decide together if coaching or consulting will best suit your needs.  

WHAT DOES COACHING WITH DR. TARA REED LOOK LIKE?

The job of a coach is to provide support, clarity, accountability and encouragement. While a coach might challenge you to think differently or suggest that you try a different approach than you normally would on your own, the client must decide whether to take the action or not. Please understand that a coach is not in any way in control of the client's thoughts, actions or life. You are in charge of your decisions! My coaching style is to educate, elevate and encourage you along your journey. I am honored to help you discover what excites you, what is meaningful to you, and what has been holding you back. Together we will design a personalized action plan to help you move forward and stay focused on the goals you chose for yourself. Because of my diverse background, experience and training as your goals change as you grow I am able to be a part of your new path and journey for as long as you need me.  

WHAT DOES CONSULTING WITH DR. TARA REED LOOK LIKE?

After spending many years in a particular field or industry, seasoned experts will turn their knowledge into a resource that individuals and companies utilize to help facilitate their goals.  Consultants identify problems, suggest solutions, educate, influence, facilitate change, revitalize or downsize a business, or create a new business. Consultants are often used before and during start-up of anew business, or to re-align a flailing business. A consultant will look at each client individually, analyze the situation, offer an impartial analysis by identifying the problem(s), and come up with a choice of potential solutions for the client. The ultimate goal for the consultant is to come up with the best strategy and plan for the client’s business. I am honored to help you take your business to the next level. Together we will design a strategy to help you move forward, start over, take your ideas to the next level. My expertise in communication, marketing, public relationships, organizational development, philanthropy, education, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging I assure you when you area ready for next level consulting we are here for you.  

CAN I HIRE A COACH OR CONSULTANT FOR A SHORT-TERM GOAL, A SPECIAL PROJECT?

Absolutely yes! Some clients hire a coach to help them achieve a specific goal or project. Many clients choose to continue working with their coach after their initial goals are accomplished because they have other goals to reach or areas they would like to improve. Just like coaching, consultants can be hired for a short term for special projects or can be hired on retainer for continuous service.

SPECIAL NOTE:

WHEN TO SEE A LIFE COACH? A life coach is someone who acts as a mentor that helps you create lasting changes, break free, and get “unstuck” from your problems. But remember, a life coach isn’t going to solve your depression. Instead, they’ll help you change your mindset so that you can embrace optimism while dealing with challenges in your life. A life coach can help you break down a big goal into smaller chunks that are less overwhelming to take on.

WHEN TO SEE A THERAPIST? A therapist helps you address, heal from, and develop coping mechanisms for problems leading to mental distress. Your mental health could be affected by any number of conditions such as depression, anxiety, or PTSD. You might even be dealing with concurrent mental illnesses. If you feel overwhelmed and unable to function on normal levels, it’s a great idea to find a therapist you feel comfortable talking to. A therapist can give you a diagnosis and has the medical and clinical background to help.
