Our Approach

At Bright Arrow, we approach coaching holistically, which allows our clients to focus on one entity or persona. We believe that finding alignment between who an individual is at work and at home is key to success. A disconnect between the two can be stressful, often leaving people feeling inauthentic and drained. Our mindfulness-based approach, which is tailored to each client’s unique needs and style, includes four phases that are designed to help individuals move from gaining insight to taking action in their lives and careers.

Phase 1: Clarify

During the first phase, we help clients see and hear their “Truths,” which often leads them to say aloud for the first time what they really want. The powerful questions a coach asks in this phase can rock their world… in a good way! This provides individuals with an opportunity to get clear on their personal values and principles as well as their life and career negotiables and priorities.

Throughout this phase, clients receive exercises to complete outside of the session, so they can continue doing deeper discovery in their spare time. Tools we may use to help them gain clarity include the New Client Questionnaire, Values Assessment, Energy Assessment, Reality Assessment, Self-Assessment, and 360 Feedback (for leadership development).

Phase 2: Reveal

We begin this phase by asking our clients to answer core questions such as:

  • “Who are you?”
  • “What matters to you?”
  • “What do you want to achieve?”

We also examine several key aspects of the client’s life and evaluate their satisfaction with each. This process allows us to identify strengths and uncover blind spots.

In addition, we work with clients to evaluate the opportunities they currently have at their disposal and then define the opportunities they need to create for themselves. Finally, we look at clients’ networks and think through how the people in their lives can open doors for them.

Throughout this process, our clients are challenged to think bigger than they ever have when it comes to brainstorming ways to increase their satisfaction.

Phase 3: Design

By the third phase, our clients are ready to design the life and career they want and then create the action plan they need to get there. During this part of the process, we leverage an expanded view of what’s possible in the client’s life and hone in on his/her personalized view of success.

Together, we co-create a flexible roadmap or action plan to ensure our clients experience quick wins and enjoy the journey, as learning to enjoy the process of goal achievement and change-making is critical to success. This becomes a life-changing shift for many people!

Phase 4: Actualize

Once the first three phases are complete, our clients are ready to take steps toward having what you want. During the last phase, we work diligently through the roadmap we’ve designed together, ensuring we celebrate all the milestones along the way!

At this point, we also address our clients’ fears and rewrite their self-limiting beliefs and rules. This is where a coach is in their corner, helping them take an objective view of what’s happening, revising their plan as needed, and most importantly, cheering them on and being an accountability partner.

“Here’s how I would describe the ‘three stages’ of working with Tegan. First comes regret… This happens when you think to yourself, ‘How differently would things have turned out if I had known someone like Tegan from the very beginning? Where would I be now?’ Then, there’s gratitude… It soon becomes clear that everything you’ve done in the past has led you to this moment, and you realize you’re exactly where you need to be right now. Finally, there’s hope… With Tegan on your side, you feel invincible. Having someone who challenges your assumptions, supports your endeavors, and celebrates your wins is nothing short of a game changer.”
