Strategizing to improve marketing and usage of my library with the use of some special software, Iola helped me to develop a plan to increase usage of my school library. She was very insightful and I came away with some workable strategies to achieve my goals. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for being such a sensitive lady who challenges me to be playful and courageous in my new empowerment. The understanding of what many possible roles there are for me is awesome. It is such a pleasure to get nudges to be open to new possibilities and learning without the judgments.

Coaching and Consultation for Those Recovering from a Chronic Illness

If you've suffered with a chronic illness, you know how setbacks can keep you from moving forward even when it's what you truly want. You may feel like you're just not ready to hire a coach, but you're uncertain you'll be able to move forward to pursue the dreams and desires you have for your life on your own.

Do you feel in doubt and fearful about the future, while your life in the present feels out of balance and at times, overwhelming and unmanageable?

As you've experienced ongoing fatigue and continual setbacks with your health, has your financial situation suffered?

If you’ve been out of work for a while due to illness, are you eager to rejoin the work force?

Do you feel that you should have accomplished more by now than you have, or that your vision of how you would like to be doesn't match what you're able to do today?

Are you hungry to be well and eager to be doing something that feels good and positive in your life?

If you're recovering from a chronic illness, you may be craving interaction with someone who understands the struggles and doubts you’ve been experiencing. Someone who can help in understanding what the next step is so you can regain a sense of balance, confidence, trust and calm in your life. Iola Freeland and Dragon Spirit Coaching can help!

We specialize in coaching those who are recovering from a chronic illness such as Chronic Fatigue.

Iola will work with you at a level and pace you feel comfortable with.

Dragon Spirit Coaching and Consultation Menu of Services and Tools

Your exact coaching experience will involve utilizing processes and possibly certain tools that are uniquely suited to your situation and goals:

Discovery Strategy Session: Every coaching service starts with a Discovery Strategy Session, which is our first session working together. One of the most important things we accomplish during this session involves exploring and defining your values. You'll begin to understand how your values work with the direction you'd like to go and how they play a vital key role in creating the optimum strategy for accomplishing your goals.

Time Management Sorcery: This stand-alone service allows those who want a more focused and in depth approach to time management to understand and master this aspect of their lives. You’ll learn to identify exactly what types of changes will help you to alleviate common time crunch stressors in your day. If you are wanting a much more efficient and stronger grasp on your day-to-day schedule, this is the course for you!

Visioning: This visualization tool is very powerful for pre-planning phases of development. It's excellent for envisioning career and business possibilities, and can create an immediate and stronger sense of well-being. Visioning is an especially helpful tool for career advancement clients and those recovering from a chronic illness.

Mind Mapping: We train clients to utilize this valuable technique outside of appointments for exploring and developing plans and ideas.

ChangeGrid:This tool can be used to gain extremely insightful and useful information before attempting to make a change. Through the process you will clarify your objectives, inventory your readiness to succeed, identify and eliminate the obstacles that prevent you from getting what you want most, and most importantly…you'll become a finisher in a world of starters!

It may be used by businesses to discover and outline exactly what is happening within a company prior to trying to making expensive staff improvements. ChangeGrids can be very eye-opening, as they can identify exactly how staff members and supervisors view each other and themselves. This in turn makes it much easier to know what corrections to make to drive up productivity and promote greater understanding between staff and management.

Vision Board: Once created, this tool is a visual aid that helps clients maintain a powerful point of focus which can be changed as progress is made to reflect newly identified goals and directions.

True Brainstorming: This tool can be shockingly informative and insightful when used correctly. We teach you the true brain-storming process as opposed to the far less effective version typically used in organizations.

Life Wheel Exploration: This tool can provide a true snapshot of a current situation – a true picture of a moment in time. This helps with clarifying and defining what is working or going well and what is not.

Goal Planning and Strategizing: This is a tool that may be used for planning the best approach for meeting your goals. This is very helpful for career change, career advancement, and small business clients, and can be useful for other client goals as well.

Whatever tools are utilized throughout your coaching, you'll be provided with all of the materials and training you need to make them work for you!

If you're ready to achieve the goals and dreams you want out of your life and career, we can help! Contact us today to get started.

Dragon Spirit Coaching specializes in helping: small business owners, those seeking career change and/or advancement, those recovering from a chronic illness, and busy individuals wanting help with staying on track.

We offer a variety of coaching programs to help these types of clients achieve their goals in life, career and business.

We also help clients resolve unique problems or situations that are holding them back from having the life they truly want and desire.

ChangeGrid…the world’s only client-driven, activity-specific coaching and management tool.

Most people only dream about the changes they'd love to see in their lives—many have started on the path of making those changes occur—some can actually see the results of what they wanted, starting to happen, but few will actually reach their ultimate goal.

The solution to this problem is the ChangeGrid.
