Coaching Philosophy

How do you want to present yourself to the world?

How do you want to show up at your job?

What do you want others to say about you behind your back?

It is the client’s responsibility to desire growth, and follow their instinct. This is, at times, uncomfortable. It is in the uncomfortable that movement and progress occurs. Growth, and inevitably change, will not occur without a person’s willingness and follow-through. Learning to trust your gut – and align the head and heart – is a value that coaching can bring.

Entering into a coaching engagement is investing in yourself, investing in the person, and investing in their current and future success. Through awareness of self and others, a person can create progress and movement to expand opportunity.

It is a coach’s responsibility to create a safe and awareness building environment. At the end of each coaching engagement a client has self-identified, tangible and practiced tools, strategies, and techniques to further meet their goals.

Small shifts can make a huge impact, uncovering roadblocks leads to success, and effective communication leads to healthier relationships..
