Coaching & Mentoring
My coaching involves the ability to understand you: to think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, I will place another perspective on top of yours – stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. As a certified John Maxwell coach, I can see what you are going through now and what is up ahead. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside you while helping you achieve goals and overcome limiting paradigms.
I offer two levels of coaching support:
One on one private and confidential coaching
When I am working with you one-on-one, it is my highest objective to help you reach your purpose, vision and goals by working through John Maxwell's programs specific to your needs. Together, we will create a strategic, powerful plan for you to gain clarity through a weekly process including, interaction and accountability.
What are you doing to invest in yourself?
What are you doing to invest in others?

When I am working in a group setting – although it’s not singular in nature – having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create. The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.
"Mentoring involves primarily listening with empathy, sharing experience (usually mutually), professional friendship, developing insight through reflection, being a sounding board, encouraging". – David Clutterbuck
M.L. Gaylor Consulting employs a self-directed modus operandi to mentoring whereby participants have choices. This approach assumes that the mentee has engaged him/herself in a process of self-matching and through that process selected this firm for mentoring.
Through a process of mutual discovery, the mentor and mentee will identify his/her needs prior to entering into a mentoring relationship. The mentor will place a strong emphasis is on active listening, providing information, making suggestions, and establishing connections.
The most important tool in this relationship is the Mentoring Agreement. This agreement will be developed, completed, and signed by both participants. This document formalizes commitment to the mentoring relationship. Items include individual goals, learning content, a meeting schedule, and communication methods.
