“By the first of February, many of the people who set grand goals for themselves in 2010 have fallen off the wagon and reverted to their old ways,” says Executive Coach Candy Myura. “Most people set goals that are unclear and poorly defined which causes them to fail. The key to setting achievable goals is to select goals that are clear, well-defined, and that you are accountable to.” As a seasoned business executive with over 19 years of leadership experience, Candy knows of what she speaks. She left her position as the COO of Appletree Answers, one of the nation’s leading answering service provider, in June of 2009 to launch her Executive Coaching and Business Coaching company. She now spends her days helping other executives to improve their businesses while creating balance in their personal lives.
Candy reminds us that doing anything worthwhile is usually not easy, but that with an open mind and a strong focus on your personal and professional development, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish. “For many people, hiring a Business Coach or Executive Coach is one of the best ways to help them achieve their goals. Coaches force you to truly evaluate your situation and set goals that are worthwhile, while providing external accountability and advice. Coaching is not consulting or therapy,” Candy adds, “it is a process of probing and asking questions to help clients make decisions that are well thought out with predictive consequences. It challenges the client to open his or her eyes to business hurdles that may very well be getting in the way of achieving significant results.”
When Candy made the decision to share her experiences with other executives, she determined that her mission would be to maximize the personal and professional potential of each individual client through a holistic self discovery process that promotes growth. Following 5 clear values (Inspire, Build Relationships, Openly Communicate, Achieve Balance, and Expect Results), Candy guides her clients through a process that opens their hearts and minds to new possibilities.
Exciting partnerships, new marketing initiatives, recommended resource lists and refined business competency training are all part of phase two and will be coming soon. Keep on the look-out for all the development and change as A Better You Coaching practices what it preaches!
