Coaching Philosophy

Every leader has potential that needs to be unlocked, and every leader is fully capable of unlocking that potential through choice and intentionality.  In a confidential relationship with me, clients co-create solutions that accelerate achievement of their goals and dreams.  So, bring your big goals and your big commitment to work, and together we will achieve what it is that you desire.  As your coach, I embrace being in service to you and believe you will find our time together transformational.  I care about what you need in conversation on any given day and create a space where we can be honest, open and we can say it like it is.  Combining over forty years of experience and a love of visual art, I will challenge your point of view and share stories to shift your perspective and make our work together real and practical.  My clients enjoy working with me because I am a powerful listener and I embrace an approach that allows me to offer suggestions for right now.  Whether you are seeking to unlock the hidden power in your interpersonal relationships or are driving towards what’s next, through empowerment, encouragement and respect we will find new ways of approaching the work to accelerate your progress.  Coaching is by far the best thing I have ever done, and I welcome the opportunity to be the locksmith that unlocks your potential.
