Leadership and Life Coaching
Coaching is profoundly personal. It's also a goal driven process. It’s not therapy; it’s not me telling you what to do. It's paying attention to your inner calling, and asking deep questions. Once in view, we'll work together to define a path and develop your vision for your future.
My coaching approach applys the Hudson Methodology and ‘life cycle’ awareness developed by coaching pioneer Frederick Hudson, as well as the research and curriculum of Brené Brown's Daring Way™, of which I am a Certified Daring Way ™ Facilitator. I draw upon processes developed from the latest neuroscience, pioneered by Daniel Siegel and Richard Hansen. Richard Leider and Kristin Neff have also influenced my work.
Within this holistic framework, we will explore the multiple facets of your adult experience. We’ll consider current context—obstacles, opportunities, desires and dreams, and identify the sometimes invisible barriers that may be inhibiting the joyful presence and powerful outcomes you can bring to every aspect of your life.
What can you expect? Sometimes nature will be our classroom. Other times we’ll sit for a cup of tea or talk by phone. We’ll do work you define that supports your most powerful, most productive and most satisfied self.
Stepping into possibility can feel challenging. My work will be to support a journey that is insightful, inspiring and fun. Intentional conversation can transform your workplace and your life. The results: fearlessness, creative vision, authentic dialogue, clarity of purpose, joy.
When does coaching make sense? When you’re swimming upstream. When life feels like a march to nowhere. When the path forward seems confusing and uninspired. You feel these moments in your bones. Again, this is good news! Change is ready to emerge.
How long does it take? I recommend a minimum of 6 coaching sessions in order to surface a clear view of your life. We'll identify central themes, obstacles and opportunities for moving you forward. There is deep work to be done that will likely take more than six weeks to develop and shift towards, but we'll discover that together.
What is 'spot coaching'? Sometimes you just need a 'quick tune up'--a conversation to surface the wisdom that resides within. Spot coaching is a 60-90m session focused on a specific and near-term decision or outcome. With deliberate inquiry and curiosity, we'll work together to bring resolution to pressing issues, creating clarity and forward movement.
