CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 - Aug. 14, 2003 - 41 Life Coaching offers support, encouragement By Gina Kaye Life coach Kath Johnson of Milton describes herself as an en- courager and a cheerleader who inspires people to navigate and eliminate the obstacles that keep them from their desired life. "I see the best part of my client and dream dreams bigger than they could have imagined for themselves" Johnson said. Life coaching, found primary in metropolitan areas, is now making its way into smaller towns and ad- dresses present and future issues in a person's life as opposed to therapy, which works to heal past problems. Johnson said life coaching could accompany therapy or stand alone. Johnson received her mas- ter of science degree in organiza- tional development from Ameri- can University and life coach training from Coach U, a Col- Awards Continued from page 40 Best Partnership - recognizes a group of organizations that have formally created a network or al- liance that has increased the or- ganizations' effect on the tourism industry Most Improved Tourism Prod- uct - recognizes an attraction that orado-based institution that trains coaches through tele- conference classes. She is also a member of the Interna- tional Coach Federation. JOHNSON Johnson said there is an important relationship between stress and illness, one that she learned after she became extremely ill from overexerting herself. "I had to learn how to keep my own life in balance and focus on the positive," she said. "Now, my mission is to help others find what they want out of life." Johnson coaches most of her clients over the phone during con- sultations that last 45 minutes to an hour. She said local clients can has successfully developed a new product or has enhanced the pres- entation of its existing offerings Tourism Awareness Award - recognizes an individual, organi- zation, or project that has success- fully promoted the benefits of tourism to Delaware's residents Tourism Advocate Award - recognizes a government official, government employee, or govern- ment agency for their exemplary choose to be coached via phone or can visit her in her Milton based office. Johnson said she has clients ranging in age from adolescents to midlife. People who want life coaching usually fall into two cat- egories: some people have specif- ic goals they want to achieve; oth- ers feel empty oiStuCk '&' do not know what direction to take. "I hold a larger vision for peo- ple who have already set goals for themselves and hold that vision for them as they walk through fears and obstacles," Johnson said. "For those who feel stuck, I search to find hidden qualities and discover their talents and inter- ests." Johnson said coaching can last from several months to a year and are sometimes ongoing. "Life coaching is a process," she said. "People realize they enjoy the efforts on behalf of the tourism in- dustry Volunteer of the Year - recog- nizes an individual volunteer's ef- forts on behalf of a tourism organ- ization Winners are selected by a panel of tourism industry professionals from surrounding states and the Governor's Office.

Johnson said she believes everyone deserves to be encour- aged; she finds support from her own life coach. "Most life coach- es have their own coaches," she said. 'q'here is a coach synergy that is efficient and gets things done more quickly. Two heads truly are better than one." Besides motivating her clients, Johnson said she helps people find ways to achieve small goals that lead to the big goal. "I give my clients goals to man- age during the week and hold them accountable for these tasks." Johnson said she is excited to coach in this area. "I moved here to keep on a path of balance," she said. "The beach gives people a relaxed feeling. I help people get to the inner beach." Johnson said achieving life goals means letting go of perfec- tionism and taking time to care for oneself. "Staying balanced is making sure you have time for the little things," she said. "IfI do not get time to read the Cape Gazette, I realize that I need to slow down and take time for myself."
