Welcome to
Mikki Williams Executive and Life Management Coaching
    with Mikki Williams, business and life coach    

"Change is inevitable, growth is optional"
Inherent in each of us are the answers to our own questions. As your coach it is my responsibility to help you find them, to challenge you and hold you accountable to actions. Coaching is designed to help you find your perspective in an era where we race to keep up with time which always seems to be accelerating. If your life is overflowing with activity but it isn't the activity you want, leading to the destiny you dream of, maybe it's time to get a life.

I believe we are all unique, we just die as copies. My goal for you is to help you find your uniqueness and then exploit it to manifest your dreams into goals. As things in your life change your strategies may need to change. Working with a coach is about helping to refocus your goals and to help you gain clarity by finding your authentic self which in turn will lead you towards your personal evolution.

What is a coach?
A coach is the carrier of another person's potential.
"Are the names we give ourselves big enough to hold our potential?" 

People often ask what is the difference between a coach and a therapist?

A therapist helps heal the past so that you can be whole in the present and the coach assumes that you are whole and helps you build an incredible future. Faster than psychoanalysis and more powerful than good intentions, a coach helps create transformational experiences one choice at a time.

You need coaching if you can answer yes to any of the following;
  • Your life is out of control
  • You are not living in sync with your values
  • Your choices do not reflect your priorities
  • You confuse who you are with what you do
  • You have challenges dealing with change
  • You are reactive rather than proactive
  • You operate in a stress mode
  • You appear intolerant of people or situations
  • You are "should-ing" on yourself
  • Adrenaline is your main source of fuel
  • You feel overwhelmed, overworked and over the hill

By asking tough questions, holding me accountable and providing the professional guidance to reach meaningful results, I have been able to establish a more balanced life. She is a catalyst for change."

    Jim Kelley

    Coaching is a creative conversation between two people in which one's profoundly committed to the other being more successful, fulfilled and evolving into a new relationship to reality. It is a call to action, a tool, intended to help you envision your future and make the reality of it connect to your vision to make your life fuller, happier, more balanced and more meaningful.

    The invisible becomes foreseeable
    The intangible becomes real
    The impossible becomes an opportunity

    Whether you want to change careers or relationships, achieve balance, find your bliss, nurture your potential, manage change, improve your communication skills, develop a new perspective, or simply improve the quality of your life, Mikki will be your companion on this journey.
