What is Coaching?

Coaching is a unique process, different than mentoring, different than therapy, different than training, and different than friendship. It may often include components from a number of those relationships, but the coaching relationship is more comprehensive.

Coaching involves an in-depth assessment of the situation and the people involved. Then, your coach, uses a vast amount of experience, to provide insight and training and bring out the best in a you.

Would you like a coach to help you stay on track and truly reach your goals?

Do you want better relationships with family, friends and co-workers?

All too often people live below their own expectations…they want more out of life but feel stuck, unable to change. Each year life repeats itself.

She will help you maximize your talents and live your purpose. Her unique Coaching Technique will teach you how to achieve freedom, get rid of the “shoulds” and help you find a fulfilled and meaningful life! 

Do you…

Believe you deserve more out of life?

Envy other’s accomplishments and wonder how they did it?

Ever feel out of balance?

Experience those ever-lurking monsters – anxiety and stress?

Want fulfillment, peace, and a greater sense of happiness?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, RETAINING YOUR OWN COACH may be your solution!

To be at the top of your game you need back up!

Name one successful athlete who doesn’t have a coach – right, there isn’t one. Every star athlete has a coach or trainer. In fact, the greater the star the more exclusive and higher priced the coach.

When you think of it, every highly successful person is accompanied by a team of experts and one of them is a coach. It is just as much a statement of success to have your own personal coach as it is to wear a Rolex, drive a BMW or fly in your private jet. But for most business professionals, a coach is not a luxury – it is a necessity.

It is rare to get to the top completely on your own. In addition to your strength and skills, you usually need some support and superior wisdom that comes from multiple sources. More and more people are turning to professional coaches to help them get to the top. Presently, there are more than 53,300 coaches in America (estimated by the international coach federation). The problem is there is no one who regulates this industry. The vast majority of those coaches are self-claimed and inexperienced. This information is about a professional life and business coach with 40 plus years of experience and a success trail that is real and impressive.

Joann’s Story

Joann Truby is experienced, vastly experienced. In her young years she was an athlete with incredible self-discipline. A national champion on roller skates, she trained and competed with the same techniques, skills and rigor as you see at the Olympics from those who compete on ice skates. She learned what it was like to be coached by world class coaches, coaches who made her successful even to the point of making her a possibility to be a USA delegate to the Olympics when roller skating competition was being considered.

After she stopped competing, she became a world class coach herself. Athletes sought after her skills to make them successful. She then expanded her coaching skills to include the fitness industry, becoming a personal trainer and coach to many of the famed and successful in the Napa Valley. Kathryn Trefethen of Trefethen Winery and the famous designer, Walter Landor (who created such corporate identities as Coca-Cola, Levi’s, Cotton Inc., Kellogg’s, GE, Fuji Film, Saturn, Miller Lite, Alitalia, and 20th Century Fox) are two examples.

Taking her skills into management, Joann found her coaching techniques worked with groups of people as well as individuals. Along with her husband, Bill Truby, she co-owns Truby Achievement Center and is a successful management consultant, author, speaker, trainer and facilitator. She still reserves a limited amount of time for her passion, however – personal coaching.

Joann’s Unique Coaching Process

Joann knows, intuitively and experientially, how to coach a person to the next level of improvement and development. And she does it with the “whole” person in mind. She deals with both personal and professional development. She knows how one affects the other. Joann is a successful coach because she draws from more than 40 years of being coached and coaching plus, she uses a unique process based on the Truby Management System that includes the following steps:

1. Assessment – You can’t change or improve that which you do not know or are unwilling to address. Knowing this, Joann leads you through a process of discovery to find a full understanding and disclosure about truth. What strengths and weaknesses do you have? What baggage do you need to get rid of? What skills do you need to learn? – Always keeping your desires and goals in mind.

2. People Skills – Both professional and personally, every person needs to engage with others. Joann teaches you the latest techniques and success strategies to communicate well, develop connections and rapport and effectively manage conflict. Additionally, for the professional, she teaches delegation skills, how to create a high performing team, and how to ensure accountability.

3. Direction – Everyone needs to know where they are going. At this stage Joann helps you determine your personal and professional direction complete with a set of goals and a road map to get there. By this time, you will want to learn how to have a meaningful existence; to understand your natural purpose. She then leads you through processes that help align everything in your personal and professional life toward your purpose and direction.

4. Efficiency – By this time you are ready to learn skills for greater efficiency and productivity. You will undoubtedly feel the excitement of getting more done and doing it easier.

5. Growth – Now Joann teaches you how to continue to improve and grow; how to take new input, assess it and respond with objectivity to increase your development and continue to enhance your feelings of fulfillment.

What you can expect from Joann’s coaching services?

Joann doesn’t use psycho-babble or so called “touchy-feely” techniques. She uses practical, usable and easy to understand methods. Her assignments are fun and give you quick results. You’ll have clear and measurable goals. And you can always stop at any time. Her coaching is guaranteed to work, or you don’t have to continue. No long-term commitments. Just results you will notice immediately.

And it’s confidential. No one needs to know you are hiring a coach except you.

And, because the coaching is done over the telephone your sessions can fit in almost anytime, anywhere. If you had to rely on face to face meetings it would take longer, cost more and have more complex logistics.

Typically, Joann meets with you once a week for an hour. But her coaching time is “outcome” based, not time based. What that means is this: If you get the outcome you are looking for in ten minutes and want to end that session that will be OK. If, however, Joann needs longer than an hour to help you meet your goals, she’ll do that too. She’ll do whatever it takes to make your coaching time successful.

There will be commitment on your part too. That’s a given. You will have to take responsibility for your decision to have a coaching session. But if life situations get in the way, she’ll be flexible. The value of your sessions will be motivation enough to keep your appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does the Coaching Process Begin?

Before working with any clients, Joann offers a FREE 30-60 minute coaching session in order to:

1) Learn more about your goals and interest in professional coaching.

2) Introduce herself and explain more about her unique approach to coaching.

3) Determine very specific outcomes you can expect as you work together.

4) Discuss the duration and pricing for the coaching sessions.

What is the Cost of Joann's Coaching?

Joann’s approach is outcome-based. She typically meets with clients 3-4 times per month for 3-6 months depending on her client’s unique goals and progress. The starting price is $600 per month (with a 20% discount to exiting Truby Achievement members). And, remember, you get a FREE Truby Achievements Membership for an entire YEAR when you commit to 3 months of coaching. (see the next FAQ for details).

How Long Does Joann Coach Someone, and How is Coaching Connected to a Truby Achievements Membership?

As a C0-Founder of Truby Achievements, Joann utilizes many of the teachings found within the Truby Achievements membership, but within specific context for each client’s needs. In fact, her coaching process has been propelled by the video tutorials. Years ago, it took longer to cover material and teachings with a client since the only time-resource she had was the appointment time. Now she can assign some short video trainings, then maximize her coaching time during your session while referring to the principles and tools you learned in the trainings.

Because of this mutual benefit, when you commit to 3 months of coaching, Joann will give you a FREE 12-month membership. It’s yours to keep for the entire year, even if you only coach with Joann for a few months.

Regarding the length of a coaching engagement: Joann can make a significant difference in your life within 3 to 6 months. It will be up to you and her to decide how long you want to stay engaged after that. There is zero obligation, nor will you experience ANY pressure to stay a client. It will be completly up to you.

The experience of others? Some clients found what they needed in 3 or 4 months. Others have stayed with her for a couple years saying, “Once you learn a sport, a coach is extremely beneficial to keep you sharp and ahead of the game.”
