Paul McGinniss Work Business Life CoachDear Paul,

Welcome to our Spring 2009 NEWS-you-can-use-LETTER.
This issue includes information to help you stay focused regardless of your circumstances. Let’s face it, there will always be something to challenge you, tempt you, stall you, derail you. And there will (almost) never be “the perfect time” for anything.
My hope is that by using the information in this issue, you will think new thoughts that create new actions that generate better results faster than if you simply applied your existing hardwiring.
Read on!

Coach’s Corner
Is It time for a Business Coach

accountingAn article appeared on a sales and marketing website asking, “Do you need a business coach when budgets are tight?”
You might expect a trite answer. Instead, the article presents the value of using a business coach and how it’s different than working with a business consultant and it offers 5 questions (though it says 6) to ask yourself to help make the decision.
Need more info about working with an executive business coach, check out the 2009 Sherpa Executive Coaching Survey.
Finally, I would say that working with a coach is sometimes the ONLY time a person gets to step out of their work and take a more objective look at what they’re doing and where’s it’s taking them. Clients are often surprised at the results they get by “creating a space” to work with a coach on a regular basis. Even small changes can create big results.
If you’re interested in finding out more about what it’s like to work with a coach, feel free to contact me with your questions by email or by phone, 516.216.4233, no strings attached.

Divorce Coaching for Men

Now, on its own!

Divorce Coaching 4 Men logoAs a reader of the quarterly News-you-can-use-letter, you know about my specialty divorce coaching program for men. Given it is such a unique program focused completely on a life coaching issue — helping men move more easily and quickly through the fog of divorce — I have decided to break out the program as a business in its own right and start a separate newsletter to directly serve this group of men. Trish, my new bride and creative director of Agapito Design Studio, has even created a new logo for the business (see above)!
What does this mean for you?! Two things.
1. If you know any men who are going into, through, or coming out of a divorce, please forward this newsletter to them so they can sign-up for the new Divorce Coaching 4 Men newsletter. It will have resources, tips, and suggestions to help men regain clarity and focus and start moving forward with their NewLife.
2. In place of DC4m in this newsletter will be a new section called “ASK THE COACH!“, where you can ask whatever questions you want and I’ll answer as many as I can in the next News-you-can-use-letter.
Go ahead, ASK THE COACH!

In the Professional Spotlight
Pamela Ross of Atlantic Human Resource Advisors

Atlantic HR Advisors logoPamela Ross is an experienced human resources expert, a successful business owner, and a very humble professional. She’s also the president of Atlantic Human Resource Advisors. Her company offers HR consulting and outsourcing services with a strong emphasis on labor and employment administration and compliance. Their unique approach is designed to meet the human resources needs of small- to medium-sized organizations, particularly those with limited in-house human resources capabilities.
Pam’s business reminds me of Stephen Covey’s Quadrant  II activities — not “urgent” but very important. As with all non-urgent but important activities, the danger in not acting is that when you need it most, it might be too late.
Don’t get yourself in a bind. Contact Pam now to discuss how she might be able to help you address your company’s need for an HR Compliance System, an HR Portal, a Company Handbook, Policy Review & Development, HR Advice-on-Demand, an HR Report Card, or any Custom or Specialty HR Issues you might have.
A conversation with Pam might just save you thousands of dollars and countless headaches.

Quotes On …

“Seeing within changes one’s outer vision.” ~Joseph Chilton Pearce

“Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully.” ~Sarah Ban Breathnach

“My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.” ~John Lennon

Response-Able Consulting uses a variety of brain-based coaching models to help successful businesspeople create the kind of business or work that supports achieving their life’s vision.
By working with how your brain works, we can facilitate positive change and help you get from A to B more quickly.
We typically distribute our NEWS-you-can-use-LETTER once each quarter. If there are issues keeping you awake at night, please share them with us and we’ll address them in future newsletters. I hope you found this issue useful.
