"What skills could take your project to the next level?”
“I’m interested, what’s next?”
The next step is to book a Creative Conversation (a mini coaching session) with me and we can discuss your ideas and goals! Once I get to know you and your project, we can see if your project is a match for my offerings and we can explore what possibilities there may be! It is my intention that by the end of our call, you will have some new ideas and insights for your creative journey!
I look forward to chatting with you! - In joy and creativity, Lyza
Q: “What is the difference between coaching, consulting, and training?”
A: Coaching is when the coach guides the client towards finding their own answers that already exist within themselves. Through reflective questions, prompts, and exercises, the client can start to piece together their puzzle. Coaching is used to gain clarity, to reveal blindspots and blocks, and to provide perspective and insights.
Consulting is when the consultant provides specific and relevant expertise, guidance, and recommendations based on first-hand industry experience. This may include providing referrals to advanced experts or offering ideas for further research, and can help fill in any knowledge gaps for someone new to a specific topic.
Training is a hands-on learning experience designed to give the client specific skills in a certain area of knowledge. An example would be learning how to use creative software, like Adobe Photoshop, Audio/Video software for podcast or videos, or online programs like Mailchimp, SquareSpace, or Patreon for marketing.
Q: “Are you a freelance designer?”
A: My approach when offering services is to do so in collaboration, which means we create the work together (in other words, I am not a freelance designer for hire). My reason for this is that I am committed to empowering people to be involved in their own process. So while I do offer occasional services if my skills are right for the project, I believe in including people in the creation as much as possible. And, on occasion, I may even bring in other experts or recommend to refer out certain tasks when needed. My role as a coach and facilitator means that I help hold space for creativity to occur, offer insight for perspective, connect people to resources… and promote full participation!
Q: “How do I know which program is best for me?”
A: The best way to know is to consider where you are right now with your process or project. A basic rule of thumb is: if you are unsure, begin with a Creative Conversation or a Strategy Session. Here are some other considerations:
If you are starting from scratch or want to expand on an idea, and want to gain clarity or build a plan of action – then Creative True North™ may be the best option.
If you are wanting more creativity in your life, and are looking for more meaning, a sense of wellbeing and joy, and even healing through creative arts – then perhaps Create Anyway™ might provide the support you are looking for.
If you have a specific project in mind, you know exactly what your next steps are and just need to get busy on producing the pieces for your vision that is well-defined – then Results-Driven Creativity™ may be the next step for you. (A word of warning: this program is intensive and can be more costly due to the hours needed for production time. Plan your time and budget accordingly.)
Q: “I have many interests and goals. What should I focus on first?”
A: Many of the creatives I work with tend to identify with being “multi-passionate”! (Myself included). Energy in many directions is like fireworks, and energy that is focused is like a laser. The choice is up to you! In reality, we can’t really steer in many directions at one time, so if you prefer and explore many things, I’d recommend starting with the Create Anyway™ program to get the creative juices flowing, or Creative True North™ to get clarity on what to focus on.
