How do you present yourself as a coach in 1 sentence in front of an audience ? What is your "lift story" as a coach? Manager's Choice

    I'm a change maker in people's lives, especially when what used to work for them in their lives no longer works for them anymore.

    I'm not sure what a "lift story" is so I can't answer that.

    Hi Cheryl
    Thank you. A lift story comes from entrepeneurs who might meet a venture capitalist in the lift and during the time of the lift from floor 0 up to floor XY they have not much time to tell the venture capitalist why s/he should invest in exactly his/her company. So the lift story for a coach could be why a potential coachee exactly should come to you and be coached by you -

    Hi Dr. Beatrice,

    Now I understand, it's a cultural difference, in the US we call it an 'elevator speech!' :) They both mean the same thing though. Thanks for your response.

    When I was a career transition coach, the most popular line was, "I help people quit jobs they hate." That always got everyone's attention. Now "I help people survive promotions." I find more impact when showcasing the solution, not my role/title.

    What I do is help parents find their voice - and themselves - again. I do this by challenging them to reach a point of clarity, direction and optimism for their lives, however it manifests itself.
