My Areas of Coaching
Helping women know who they are and what they are about as a foundation for all other areas of their life. Self-ownership, which creates confidence, involves embracing the things we control (how we show up, our yes and our no), discovering our strengths, values, and purpose while facing the uncomfortable parts of our lives, setting boundaries, and making empowered choices that are right for us.
Self-Ownership to Life Mastery
Life-Mastery is the next step after we take control of our lives (self-ownership). A Mastery Mindset involves focusing on the process, not outcomes or performance, cultivating healthy fearlessness, focus, and commitment. It is a growth-oriented way of approaching life that naturally accelerates progress, cultivates authenticity and empathy, while reducing stress.
Navigating Big Changes
Major changes are a part of life. Whether they be divorce, a new career, a move, new relationships, health, or financial. Coaching life transitions is about pivoting our minds from the natural reaction of stress and fear to equanimity, excitement and opportunity. It's not about rah-rah positivity. It's about objectively seeing a situation, accepting it as it is - not as you want it to be - and being open to the unique possibilities it presents.
Relationships are full of complex feelings and misunderstandings. Sometimes it helps to have someone who can build understanding by observing intrinsic values, wants and needs, help bridge the defensive communication with understanding and removing stress by addressing unfounded fears and assumptions head-on.
Diary of a Coach
This is where I share the common struggles and insights I witness as the people I know and work with explore their desire for personal growth and creating change in their lives.
Certified Professional Coach: Life, Personal Growth & Self-Mastery
I started my career as a software developer and quickly transitioned into leadership. But at the back of my mind there was a strong curiosity to understand myself better and why people do what they do. Through the years I dealt with my fair share of self-centered leaders, unethical business partners, abusive romantic partners and wondered why me? As if the problem was some how my fault. My misguided assumption was that a perfect world existed if I could become perfect, myself.
But being perfect turned into accommodating, pleasing, and denying what was authentic in order to influence those around me to be nice (which didn't work). I didn't understand the importance of boundaries and self-respect. The cost I paid for the way I tried to interact with the world was my confidence and sense of self.
At a rock bottom moment, I started my training as a certified professional coach. It was a journey of self-leadership and objective thinking, understanding that things don't happen to me, they just happen - period. We can deal with them plainly as they are, or we can try one of many coping mechanisms designed to avoid fear and uncomfortableness while keeping us small.
Now, I help women learn what I learned - to lead themselves and take back their lives, where they know who they are, what they will and won’t tolerate, and are clear on how they can best serve the world and those around them. It's a journey of confidence and self-worth, where you never feel like a pretzel again.
What’s Being Said
I highly recommend Angela's coaching to everyone. She is phenomenal at judgement-free listening and has guided me to insights that have had a revolutionary effect on my life. Struggling with shame and embarrassment have been a central part of my life for many years, but coaching with Angela has helped me realize I have had the keys to my shackles this whole time.
I highly recommend Angela Greenwell as a life coach! She has helped me change my life for the better even in these most chaotic of times. I have started working out again, I’ve lost 15 lbs, I was able to get my house on the market and sold for over asking price with multiple offers, get out of a relationship that wasn’t right for me, switch to Ansley Atlanta and overall feel happier and healthier than I have in years. I am truly excited for what my future will bring. Thank you Angela!
Genuine, intuitive, and professional with life experiences of her own that make her unique coaching-style so effective! It's easy to connect with Angela and express what is in your heart and on your mind - all essential in getting real results. Sessions are dynamic, insightful, and support clients' agenda. She is truly invested in meeting you where you are, helping you move forward, and supporting you in creating your best life.
How did Angela's coaching make my life better?
Psychologically - I feel WAY more confident about myself. Recognizing choices, letting go of what doesn't matter, I can enter situations trusting myself and others and focus on creating something amazing.
Professionally - these are the most tangible improvements. My leader continues to express her gratitude around how I've been showing up since coaching. Other leaders in the company have expressed similar sentiment. I recently received a special "Founders Equity Grant" as special recognition of my contributions in 2019, and I believe that ending the year on a positive note (with help from Angela and her coaching) contributed to this outcome. Moreover, it seems more and more people at work are feeling comfortable approaching me, as requests for my participation in projects and efforts have grown in the last two months. More opportunity to create, more opportunities to grow.
Personally - I am able to recognize choices everywhere. And recognize the level of control I have over every aspect of my life. This has improved my eating habits, helping me breach the 250lb wall I've been struggling to reach for a year. I've also completed the first draft of a novel, a life goal that I've started at least five times in the past and never finished. These achievements stem from the simple mantra Angela's coaching helped me develop: Recognize your choices, know the outcome you want, and choose accordingly.
