1 on 1 Performance Coaching

What is the time commitment for coaching?

You begin with an hour introductory call with your JDC Coach. Next, you will have half hour calls spaced out over the month, with most clients choosing to connect every 10 days. It’s good to remember the more coaching you have the faster you’ll go.

Will coaching work for me?​

If you show up for calls and take the actions you and your coach agree on, you will have movement. Your interest in Jason Drees Coaching alone signals that you knowing there is more awaiting you in life.

How long does coaching take to work?

Most clients experience an immediate impact within the first month. As your coaching relationship strengthens and your capacity increases, your coach will guide you to places higher than you ever imagined. It really is up to you and how fast you want to grow.

What if I already know what to do?

JDC helps close the gap between knowing what to do and taking the action. When you know what to do but aren’t taking the action it isn’t procrastination or laziness. It’s simply that your current mindset is keeping you from creating change.  Your coach will help you connect with a higher level of energy, purpose, and decision-making power that will pull you to new expanded targets in a way you’ve never experienced.

Is a personal coach or business coach similar to a sports coach?

A sports coach helps athletes focus on appropriate mechanics and strategies to increase success in a specific game. A personal coach or business coach is similar but differs in that the game being played—life or business—is unique to the individual. Whereas in baseball for example, mechanics and how to play are standard across the entire sport.

Are results guaranteed?

Results in coaching are 80% client and 20% coach. You must take the action. Your coach is only a guide. Your coach will lead you, but you must walk the path.

How long should I engage in coaching?

As you know, there are no standardized rules for how to effectively manage your life, your body, your relationships, your family, your finances, or your business. A combination of factors create success, and those factors are unique to you.  What creates success for one person doesn’t always work for another.


What usually happens during coaching is that the initial goals are achieved and then new expanded goals are created. Then the process repeats itself. Your best bet is to decide to expand and go after what you want while seeking and retaining the resources needed to make it a reality.

Does my coach need to be an expert in my field?

Jason Drees Coaches can coach anyone, anywhere, at any time. Success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy. Your coach’s primary purpose is to help you generate the answer yourself.

Is coaching the same as mentoring?

A mentor’s expertise is strategy. They give you strategies, but understanding a high-level strategy is useless unless you know how to execute. A JDC coach’s expertise is mindset. They help you create and consistently execute higher-level strategies. Coaches often act as mentors as well, typically by modeling the potential for growth and change.

Does our past really hold us back?

The justifications of our past failures become the limitations of our future. In the past we’ve focused on achieving goals. When we don’t achieve a goal, our brains create a reason or excuse why we didn’t execute.


For example, pretend you really wanted to win an award last year, but you didn’t. When you looked at the award winners, they were all wearing blue shoes. This created a story or pattern in your brain via your reticular activating system (the same system that makes you start to notice the same model of car after you buy one).


When the time for the award comes up this year, you remember that all the past winners wore blue shoes. Subconsciously you decide winning the award is impossible based on your past experience. Your energy will drop because you think wearing blue shoes is a requirement for winning the award, and all your shoes are brown. Have you ever experienced something like this?

What if I can't afford it?

Here are a few questions for you. How long have you not been able to afford it? Would you like to be able to afford it? Believe it or not your current financial situation is the result of strategies created by your current mindset. If you want to change your financial situation and move into a life of true wealth, you must start by shifting your thoughts and perspective. Les Brown once said, “The easiest thing I’ve ever done is make one million dollars. The hardest thing I’ve ever done was believing I could.

How can I prepare for coaching?

What happens during onboarding?

During the onboarding process you will complete a DISC personality strengths assessment, an intake questionnaire, and a 60-point diagnostic. This information will be reviewed with your coach during the first coaching call. Initial coaching calls run from 60 to 90 minutes.
