Years of Experience
So, you're considering getting a coach.
I'm sure you have lots of questions. I want to help you answer the most important question when looking for a coach — "Is this the right coach for me?"
To help you answer that, let me tell you a little about me.
I’ve been doing this a LONG time — over 25 years. During that time, I’ve coached hundreds of professionals throughout all phases of their careers. But you're not here to read my resume (though you can find it here if you're really intrigued). In the end, the most important factor in a successful coaching relationship is the same for any other relationship in your life — will we get along?
Well, I don't know you, so I can't say for sure. But I can tell you about my coaching style, the type of people I work with, and what coaching means to me. See what you think, and if you think we might get along like chips and guacamole, then let's set a date and chat. If not, still reach out — I'd love to hear from you and may even know someone who can help.
A little about my coaching style.
I've been described as a straight-shooter with a relaxed, conversational style to my coaching. Which really means, "I say what's on my mind, but I'm nice about it."
I believe in challenging my clients, because real, material growth only comes through pushing ourselves to do the impossible. Don't worry — I keep the training wheels on if you need it, and we work on taking them off when you're ready.
If I had to throw modesty out the door…
…I would say that I'm REALLY good at helping leaders connect the dots between their beliefs and behaviors ("walking the talk"), and understanding and developing their influence, emotional intelligence, and team performance.
Who do I work with?
I love working with professionals and seeing the impact they have on their teams and organizations. Does the industry or type of business you're in matter? No — that's your expertise, not mine. What matters for me is how your business or organization depends on you as a leader, and how your leadership impacts those around you. I look more at the "how" you do what you do, rather than the "what" you do.
I do this for light bulb moments.
There is nothing more amazing than seeing the light bulb go on in a client's head — their "ah-ha" moment. What's even better is that these "ah-ha" moments are not mine — my clients get there on their own, and decide how to take that insight and put it into motion.
So that's a little about me. I hope that answered some of your questions. If you have any other burning questions, please get in touch! I'd love to hear from you.
Have an Empowerful day!
