Everybody Needs a Coach: Introducing Mack Arrington, PCC

If you’re looking for a coach, you’d probably like to know a bit about me and how we would work together. I’ve worked hard to become board-certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF) as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and have been an Executive and Life Coach since 2001.

I’ve helped my clients:
• Follow their dreams
• Improve their leadership
• Find their perfect job
• Win awards
• Go into business—or—out of business
• Improve sales
• Hire the right people
• Save their marriages or go through a divorce
• Deepen their faith
• Save their careers
• Set goals and reach them
• Get organized and be more efficient and effective
• Improve relationships

How do we work together?
I have coached people all across the USA and Canada mostly by phone, some for a long as five or more years without meeting with them face to face. Most people do well with two or three sessions per month by phone. Some require face-to-face. I can be flexible depending on your situation.

We usually work on three areas: Goals, Tolerations and Structures for Success.

Once you clarify your goals, you can start making better decisions immediately because you know what you want, and also what you don’t want. It’s not unusual for your goals to change as you go from what you thought you should do into what you truly want to do (and stop shoulding all over yourself…). One of the most important people to lead is yourself in reaching your goals.

Tolerations are the things and people you put up with in your life, and things that waste your time and energy. We want to eliminate what you tolerate, and of course, some things are easy and others require some strategy and planning. For examples, it’s easy to eliminate the need for a phone by buying a new phone. It can be a lot harder when you are tolerating someone in your life who is very negative. Some people are problem magnets, others have developed into problem-free zones who handle situations and move on with life. Some get bogged down with all they have to do or fix, and you need to keep going.

Success Structure
Structures for success are necessary to reach your goals and avoid “brain ambush.” Whenever you need to make changes, your brain prefers to keep doing what it already knows. In stepping towards your goals, you will face fatigue, stress and novel situations you didn’t expect—things that can distract, delay and defeat you. You’ll need to develop new habits, build reserves of time and other resources and set bigger, better boundaries to maintain your focus and de-fragment your life. Creating new structures or re-setting old structures and boundaries can be extremely difficult.

The other thing is that a great coach brings out your best self. The job of the coach is to witness your greatness and call forth your best—your wisdom and experience—and put this into play for your life.

That’s what I do. Let me know how I can be of service to you.
