Widism Life Coaching: A Detailed Overview
Our creed: Live Life Wide. And our coaching helps you do just that!
Are you avoiding a rewarding life and/or career transition? Do you have big dreams or inspiring goals that you sweep under the carpet because you’re unsure how to make them happen? Do you know exactly what you need to do to accomplish your awesome ambitions, but lack the self-confidence to say no to your status quo and begin the journey? Or are you just confused and overwhelmed about the next chapter in life?
We know just how you feel. And we’re not the only ones.
We know all to well what it’s like to become disenchanted by inner critics and struggle with the frustration and anxiety of wanting to make a change but not knowing where to begin.
We also know what it’s like to get the support and encouragement we needed to keep moving forward through our doubts and uncertainty, past our frustration and overwhelm, and towards our life-affirming passion-project.
We believe that coaching is one of the most powerful ways to accelerate your progress and get results in any area of life.
We can say this with confidence because we’ve personally experienced the transformational outcomes that coaching can facilitate – from both the coach’s and client’s perspective.
The committed coaches that we’ve worked with have helped us create clear and focused plans, discover our limiting internal blockages and fears, and develop the confidence to boldly move forward in the face of uncertainty.
Now that we’re coaches, we want to help you do the same!
Our goal is to help you see a wider, more wondrous way of living than you could imagine for yourself. We are here to give you the encouragement to be courageous, to walk side-by-side with you while you tackle tumultuous, and sometimes turbulent times of transition.
We’re here to help you get clear on your goals and the steps needed to achieve them. If you are interested in, but having mixed feelings about seeking meaningful shifts in your life, we will help you to identify your top talents, skills and abilities and then give you the structure, encouragement and support you need to take ACTION.
We may review and reflect on where you’ve been from time to time during sessions, but coaching is never about analyzing your past – that’s therapy. And although we may make the occasional bold request of you, coaching is not about telling you what to do – that’s consulting. Coaching is about looking forward to the life you want to live and finding the answers that lie within you. Others may try to tell you otherwise, but YOU are the only expert on your life. We are merely the cheerleaders who will help you become more aware about what you want, create a clear plan for making it happen, and provide support, resources, and accountability as you move forward.
“Clayton is an exceptional coach. He has amazing insight and intuition and brings to the coaching sessions great clarity and focus. He draws on knowledge gained from his own life experiences as well as the extensive studying and reading he has done which, for me, authenticated our sessions, allowing for a broader perspective on anything we discussed. His wonderfully relaxed approach to coaching made me feel completely at ease and in no time at all I felt I was in a safe environment and able to discuss anything that came up – as our sessions progressed this feeling only increased. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who is genuinely interested in turning their lives around to discover for themselves how they can fully experience the joy of living life to the fullest.”

How Coaching Works Best
We can promise that we will coach the pants off of you, but ultimately, your results will be determined by the level of commitment you bring to the table. We can coach you until we’re blue in the face, but it won’t work if you aren’t playing your A-game.
1) You have be 110% fully committed to the coaching if you want to maximize your results
We normally suggest that clients sign up for no less than 12 sessions of coaching, but offer a 4-session package for those who are curious and want to try it on. The reason we suggest 12 sessions+ is that sustainable change is a process and doesn’t happen over night.
Whether you are interested in starting a business, quitting your job, round-the-world travel, launching a blog, changing careers or [INSERT WIDE DREAM HERE], it takes time to develop the new habits and behaviours needed to make your ideas come to life. Transcending and transforming your status quo will often require a newer version of yourself, and that person usually doesn’t show up on demand.
But that’s not news to you. If big shifts could happen with the snap of your fingers, you’d be sitting pretty on a beach drinking Mai-Tais by now, wouldn’t you?
2) How tight we get will have an impact on the results you get
It’s indisputable that the connection, rapport, and resonance between trainer and trainee, mentor and protege, doctor and patient, teacher and student, and coach and client have a significant impact on the results of the relationship.
You and your coach will be Partners in Crime (the crime being breaking free from convention). As your coach, we’ll do anything and everything in our power to help you figure out your what, why, how, when, where, and with who in life. Truthfully, we get personally invested in the goals and dreams of our clients and it’s almost selfish how much we enjoy watching them move from “can’t do” to “can do” attitudes.
“Having Anthony as a coach has been awesome! My career and life had been derailed by a car accident, and I was letting my health determine the future when we first started our sessions. But, Anthony’s buddy meets councilor-approach and straight forward attitude has helped me re-focus, set new goals, and make ‘em happen. Within a few weeks of working together I noticed a change in my attitude, my outlook, and I’ve already gone on to film national TV shows, accept bookings around the world, build my business, and set my master plan in motion. I 100% attribute my turnaround to Anthony holding me accountable, breaking down my goals and taking me through step by step what needs to be done to achieve them. I’m happy to say that not only am I back on track, but I wake up everyday so excited for what’s next I scream a little… like really. Thanks Anthony! Go Team!”

How we’ll work together
When you work with a Widism coach, you get a passionate teammate who will help you consciously create your life. He/she will be your #1 fan, your greatest ally, your champion and motivator. Your coach is a rock you can count on to be there. We’ll be a sounding board to bounce ideas and thoughts off of, we’ll ask you insight-provoking questions you likely never ask yourself, and we’ll compassionately push you further and harder than you might push yourself on your own.
As for you, you’ll commit to doing the work, even when the work gets tough (especially when it gets tough), and to making the necessary shifts in both thinking and action to achieve your biggest goals.
We’ll have up to 4 sessions per month (or can spread them out if you prefer), unlimited email access in-between, purposeful between-session assignments and access to our personal networks when and where it makes sense.
“Clayton helped me out during an extremely difficult time in my life. I was hit with various financial and emotional issues at once. His coaching helped me create and focus on goals aiming towards where I wanted my life to go. I had been working in a field that had become uninteresting, and unrewarding to me. I had always wanted to be a tattoo artist since I was younger, an extremely difficult career to get in to. Clayton helped me set deadlines and take small steps towards my main goal of getting into a shop. His help with reorganizing my time and finances helped make this a reality. I developed a roughly one-year plan with various steps to achieve this… and now I’m currently working as a tattoo artist and loving it. Thanks Clay!”

Is coaching with us right for you?
We develop a genuine partnership with our coaching clients that extends way deeper than just our time together during our sessions. Your success is our success, and we will tenaciously commit to helping you identify clear and measurable goals that align with your life’s vision and core values, and then see them to fruition. But coaching is a two-way street and you need to be willing to meet your coach halfway. There is a high-level of commitment needed to get the most out of coaching, which is why we are selective about who we can work with.
Because we need to make sure you and your coach are a great fit for each other, our coaching programs are by application only. To ensure you are getting our full, undivided attention, we can only work with a limited number of clients each at any given time. We’re looking for people who are motivated, proactive, action-oriented, authentic, positive and optimistic, and who are committed to making major progress — while having fun!
If those qualities are you in a nutshell, then you can apply for the program by clicking the link below. We look forward to learning more about you!
We also offer a FREE Monthly Coaching Call with Coach Clay where you can ask all your coaching-related questions.
“During this past off-season I was fortune enough to work with Tony as my life coach and friend. Not only did he help me set both short and long term goals for myself, but he also took a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. Each session we discussed what did and didn’t work about the week before and how I could change my approach in order to better attain my desired goals. Over the off-season, Anthony and I discussed many different things ranging from my charity work and family life to football and long term life goals. Our sessions always flowed and felt natural. Having someone who I knew I could fully trust to offer a fresh point of view to any or all things I had going on in life was an invaluable asset this past off-season and I look forward to continuing working with him.”
