Certified Master Coach, FASAE, CAE, CPC, CCRC
Executive, Career, & Life Coaching
First and foremost, clients will have a safe place to be themselves and explore whatever professional, career, or personal areas that they choose to focus upon with a partnering champion for their development and breakthroughs. They will experience a supportive, caring, and seasoned coach, association professional, and business leader with whom to work. Coachees will benefit to the extent that they choose to execute on the outcomes that arise from our work together.
New jobs and promotions, improved Board/CEO partnerships, finding their voice and leadership presence, the ability to design conversations effectively, improved relationships, improved sense of self-worth, stronger focus, and the ability to expertly lead boards, teams and accomplish mission and vision.
Coaching is a partnership for professionals, who seek a safe haven to explore, vent, test, innovate, and take off their masks in order to create personal and professional breakthroughs. The coachee is always in control of session content identification, and it is their responsibility to determine what actions to take and whether, or when, to move forward. The coach's role is one of assisting on the journey to discovery, creation of options for consideration, illumination, and support through powerful questions, inquiry, challenging of actions taken/not taken, and accountability.
