"From the onset, I have trusted and welcomed your insights and curiosities. You have helped me to think bigger and stretch to the next dimension. I guess I could find some of those competencies in another coach, but I don’t think I could find the skills along with the genuine caring and depth that you have demonstrated on so many occasions. What a special gift!” 

Vice President HR & OD





What is coaching?  Coaching is a dynamic, creative and experiential learning process grounded in a trusting and safe relationship between Coach and Client.  Coaching is designed to help the Client to get unstuck and break free from "the definition of insanity" - doing things, over and over again, and expecting different results.  Coaching provides fresh insights that offer new perspectives on a challenging situation, affirming feedback that brings new clarity and confidence, thought-provoking questions that lead to breakthrough thinking and new possibilities, the opportunity to set meaningful and powerful goals and take effective action that creates and sustains the desired change.  

The Client-Coach Relationship

Forming a foundation of trust in the Client-Coach relationship is essential for a true thought partnership to be created and experienced.  Coaching is based on the premise that every Client is creative, resourceful and whole, and each an expert in his/her own life.  Achieving successful and sustainable outcomes happens when both the Coach and Client are prepared and committed to fully engage in the process of inquiry, feedback, and accountability.

The Coach’s role and responsibilities are to:

  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the Client wants to achieve
  • Encourage Client self-discovery
  • Elicit Client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the Client responsible and accountable.

The Client understands that he or she:

  • Ultimately responsible for their own growth and progress
  • Will make their best efforts to do the work with openness, commitment and diligence
  • Provide candid feedback during the coaching engagement to ensure that the Coach is designing an optimal learning experience that meets their goals
