I came into this expecting absolutely no results. I needed help finding a career, better myself and balancing out my life. I'm only a couple sessions in and I've had breakthroughs in many aspects of my life. Scott Graham is exactly who I needed to help me get back on track.

True Azimuth coach G. Scott Graham continues to deliver profoundly useful coaching sessions. Highly personable, yet with no wasted time, we are able to quickly get at whatever I seem to need to move forward, regain my footing, or get unstuck. I recommend him without hesitation!
Coach Scott has been a great help in my personal, career, and business coaching, offering timely insights and supportive materials relevant to my areas of focus.
The 10 best things about working with Coach Scott:
1. He is able to hold focus on any particular area.
2. He is great with motivation.
3. He makes an efficient use of time -- he wants to know what is going to be most helpful.
4. He is invested in you making process.
5. He is insightful -- he brings in and shares his personal experiences -- it might not be helpful for other people but it is really helpful for me.
6. He offers a lot of great supportive information -- he just doesn't offer his advice he tells you about books that he has read that is supportive and useful that the person might not have found elsewhere.
7. He is able to detect where a person is getting hung up and can make suggestions -- out of experience -- are you getting hung up because of A, B or C.
8. He is sensitive but really down to earth -- which really increases the comfort level.
9. Scott sends meeting notes immediately after any session, reiterating discussed points and suggestions. That is a really strong component. I don't have to take notes during our calls, and I can easily go back and review those. My progress does not begin and end with our sessions.
10. He has a private client website with a lot of resources, worksheets, eBooks, surveys.
Someone once told me there are two types of people in life: those that play
in the game and those that watch on the sideline. When I initially contacted
Scott Graham, it was because I needed a prep plan and test taking strategies
for a licensing exam. That's all I wanted. That is all that I expected. I
was a "side-liner."
Sure I had a lot -- very successful in some people's eyes. I thought I had
everything -- and my use for Scott Graham was merely pragmatic -- to help me
pass an exam.
Years later, I left my old dead-end job, I am running my own business with
enviable contracts, have a stronger more intimate relationship with my
husband, have returned to graduate school for my CAGS, engage in a regular
meditation practice (he talked me into going to a Vipassana Retreat like he
does -- then my husband went -- then the rest was history), do trainings and
public speaking -- the list goes on and on and on and on!
If you had come up to me a few years ago and said, "this is where you will
be in a few years," I would have fallen on the floor laughing in hysterical
disbelief. My profession is counseling and am amazed at the growth I have
made. I am now fully playing on the field! If you want more than you
bargained for, want to grow more than you think is possible, want to be
somewhere in a few years that you can't even imagine is possible today --
call Scott Graham. He has the skill and experience to help you get where you
need to without sacrificing balance and equanimity.
For the longest time, I had been sitting on the idea of starting my own coaching practice. I had been practicing mental health and addiction counseling for over twenty years and had even been using coaching techniques to help my clients solve their mental health and addiction problems. I knew how to coach people. The problem was I didnt know the first thing about starting or running a business. I was stuck.
Then the obvious answer dawned on me. Ill hire a coach myself. Then something unexpected happened: FEAR! I knew that one of the many things coaches do is hold their clients accountable. If I hired a coach, Id actually have to start the business. And that would be hard work. Hearing those thoughts, I realized that Id never do this without the help of a coach. So I picked up the phone and made the call.
That phone call turned out to be one of the best things Ive done in a long time. Not only has Scott helped me design and implement my business plan, marketing strategy, website, LinkedIn account, you name it, hes held me accountable just as I feared he would. And that has made all the difference. I can tell you for certain, I would never have started my coaching practice had I not made that phone call.
If you are a therapist thinking about starting a private therapy or coaching practice, you would be crazy not to hire Scott. He can help you with everything you need to learn and do in order to start and run your own private therapy or coaching practice.
I've been working with Coach Scott for over 3 months and am extremely impressed with the level of coaching and mentoring he's been able to provide in a short time. I have seen tremendous results from the systems we have built together and I'm already starting to actualize accomplishments that were once only lofty ideas. Scott is an excellent listener and his coaching is effective because he listens closely to your specific goals and objectives before he helps you craft tailored strategies and actionable proposals based both on sound research and his real-life experiences. I absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants to be more successful and effective in his or her career.
Scott has taught me how to jump over the hurdles which previously held me back. He has excellent business knowledge--which is far more important than just a motivational coach.
He helps with goals and has brilliant marketing ideas. He understands technology the way few coaches do.
Scott has helped me with a number of different situations. He helps with enthusiasm, and an abundance of knowledge, and a great deal of patients. If you say you want to accomplish ANYTHING, Scott is off and running- right next to you- motivating- inspiring- giving you encouragement- caring- all the way!
He listens, supports, and is like a bumble bee buzzing around you until you continue moving forward with your goals.
I would recommend Scott highly. He helps his clients accomplish great results due to his deep knowledge and out of the box thinking. I have not only worked with him myself but have had him work with other family members and clients. Scott is the real thing!
"Coach" Scott Graham was incredibly helpful in my personal life, as well as my business. My wife bought me three coaching sessions with Scott Graham, and they proved to be very valuable! We were able to sort out several issues, such as certain difficulties I had keeping my business organized, as well as personal problems that were holding me back, such as worry and doubt, and the obstacles that were not permitting me to realize my full potential. I am looking forward to working with him again in the near future, and would recommend his management services highly!
