Frequently Asked Questions

About Gorett Reis and Coaching

Here are answers to some of the top questions people asked about me and coaching related topics.

  • How long have you been a Career and Life Coach?
    I’ve been a Career and Life Coach for over 8 years now. Once I figured out I wanted to be a coach, I took Dr. Martha Beck’s 10-month coach training program while I taught. Dr. Beck coached Oprah so I thought that said a lot about her ability as a coach. Soon after my training, I got certified and started to coach. That’s the formal answer, the informal one is that I have been informally coaching since I was about 12 years old.
  • How did you get into Career and Life Coaching?
    I got into coaching after a dissatisfying career in teaching and now help others find something more fulfilling, build their business, or advance where they are. I see career coaching as anything you do for a living not just a 9-5 position and that's why half of my clients are entrepreneurs.
  • How are you different from other "Career" and "Life Coaches"?"
    I’m different from other Career and Life Coaches because: I have an uncanny ability to get to the heart of the matter and get results. A lot of clients say I'm very intuitive and that helps them get unblocked and find success. I've very experienced. I've put in my 10,000 hours of coaching whether formally or informally. I'm a career and life coach, not solely one or the other. I believe your career and life are very much affected by each other and if you are dissatisfied in one area, it's most likely seeping out to other areas of your life e.g., relationship, finances, etc. I take a very inside-out approach to coaching. I'm most likely not for you if you are seeking what industries or businesses are hot right now or what personality test says what career or business you should get into (an external approach). This said, I do factor the effects of AI and climate change on certain careers. I continue to personally and professionally develop and have invested a lot to work with top coaches myself.
  • Who are your clients?
    My clients range from actors to executives. They’re professionals generally between 30 and 55 who want more out of their career and life. They are smart, committed and know with a little help they can get “back on track" or find a new path.
  • What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me as a coachee?
    I work best with people who are open and committed. They're honest with themselves and me and take responsibility for their change and results. If we work together, I'll expect you to have these qualities. A sense of humour is a bonus. :)
  • What type of professional are my coaching packages NOT going to work for?
    I’m selective about my clients. I don’t sign up everyone who wants to work with me because a) I feel we’re not compatible or b) I don’t feel I can genuinely help them. Incompatible personality types are people who are not open, not honest, super negative and who are not committed to the process. Luckily, I haven’t encountered such clients because I am so selective.
  • Does this really work?
    It does. Just with anything, however, “you get out of it what you put into it.” Check out some client testimonials or Google Reviews to see what’s possible.
  • What results can I expect?
    Here are the recurring results my clients experience: career advancement clarity, direction, and focus more financial security better money mindset profitable businesses greater autonomy better boundaries and balance in your career and life (i.e. assertive and delegation skills) improved relationships improved interpersonal and communications skills more confidence, fulfillment and joy increased creativity and innovation acquire healthy and productive habits
  • How quickly can I expect results?
    Again, it depends on what you put into it; however, clients typically see results in the first month or two. This could be a major shift or steps toward an important goal.
  • Do people ever renew?
    Yes, it is common for clients to renew once a package ends, hence the maintenance package option.
  • How will we work together and what are your coaching packages?
    Our work together depends on the package you choose and its features. Your specific package will determine our communication and other details. Otherwise, we start with your goals and go from there. Here are my package details: The 12-month Makeover Package The Makeover Package is for individuals who want lasting transformation. They are seeking a serious upgrade in their career and the sagging parts of their life. They do not accept the status quo any longer and want a new or better version of work and themselves. Clients who have been with me a year all have had significant positive and sustainable change in their lives (see some results in my testimonials). Some do not recognize the person they were before. Are you ready for a Makeover? The Makeover package includes: 2 90-minute in-person meetings (within the GTA only). 28 1-hour video coaching calls (on Google Meet). 8 1-hour phone coaching calls. 12 text and/or email communication (in total) per week during business hours. 1 Focus Call (15 minute or less) during business hours per week. Customized exercises and resources to strengthen your process. My monthly blog. 6-month Momentum Package The Momentum Package provides just that: momentum. This package is a perfect fit for those who want a push but can take it from there. They desire significant change in their career and life and know with a little momentum they will achieve it. For instance, many clients have obtained higher paying and more fulfilling positions in less than 6 months. Do you just need momentum? The Momentum package includes: 1 90-minute in person meetings (within the GTA only). 14 1-hour video coaching calls (on Google Meet). 4 1-hour phone coaching calls. 6 text and/or email communication (in total) per week during business hours. 1 Focus Call (15 minute or less) per week during business hours. Customized exercises and resources to strengthen your process. My monthly blog. 3-month Maintenance Package The Maintenance Package is intended for people who are looking for tweaks and a few adjustments to their career, business and/or life. They feel something is off the way things are now and feel some immediate improvements will get them “back on track.” This package is also designed for renewing clients who want to maintain the progress they have made. What needs maintenance? The Maintenance package includes: 7 1-hour video coaching calls (on Google Meet). 2 1-hour phone coaching calls. 3 texts and/or email communication (in total) per week during business hours. 1 Focus Call (15 minute or less) during business hours per week. Customized exercises and resources to strengthen your process. My monthly blog.
  • Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it's like to work with you?
    You cannot contact former clients because of our confidentiality agreement, however, you can check out some of their testimonials or read the reviews on Google.
  • How do you pay?
    We would first establish working together via a Get Acquainted Call. Once we have, I accept all major credit cards and email-transfers.
  • If I'm not sure I'm ready to get started, how can I sample your work to see if it's the right solution for me?"
    If you are not sure you are ready you can check out my blog posts at G's Career & Life blog to get a feel of what I can offer or check out any of the podcasts I was a guest on.

Success Stories

What My Clients Say

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Gorett helped me find out what's really important in my life. Her guidance helped me see that the most important things are also the things that bring me the most joy! When we started, she helped me see that there were things I could do to start living a more joyful life right away. Every little improvement showed me that it was possible, and gave me the courage and motivation to keep making ever better changes in my life. I turned around an unproductive habit. I have three new athletic hobbies, a more fulfilling career, and I'm giving back to a community who helped me discover my passion. If you feel like there could be more to life, but don't know how (or what!) to change, I'd absolutely recommend working with Gorett!"
