My coaching responds to the aspirations and challenges that leaders and others find at different junctures in their life and work. Oftentimes, a person seeks coaching from me in order to:
- work on particular goals in their leadership approach or style
- navigate current challenges in their work or life
- prepare for a career transition: new to a position, considering a new job or career, mid-career slump, preparing for retirement
- intentionally focus on their professional, personal or spiritual well-being
- have an opportunity to develop new perspectives, strategies, and results in their leadership and lives
A guiding perspective for my approach to coaching is expressed by Marcel Proust who said that “The real voyage of discovery, consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” In coaching we focus on shifting one’s perspectives, leading to new actions and leadership practices and qualitatively different results.
If after an initial exploratory conversation (at no cost), we decide to proceed, we develop a coaching program that articulates the goals for the coaching and the agreements about how we will proceed. I see clients in my office or mostly we “meet” on the phone or through Zoom, a secure video conferencing on your laptop.
I have extensive training in coaching and have a credential as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation. I am also a certified ontological coach and certified somatic coach and have received my training in coaching from The Newfield Network and The Strozzi Institute.
