Coaching Value Proposition

My mission is to assist my clients and their teams in achieving maximum professional and personal success and satisfaction as they contribute to the success of their organization.

I believe skills in listening, questioning, challenging and delivering hard messages with compassion are as important to a successful coach as an understanding of sound business strategy, organizational dynamics and performance management. 

For those who want to lead, Leadership Coaching facilitates accelerated growth.  Based on data from assessments and interviews, strengths to leverage and liabilities to manage are identified.  Depending on competencies most needed in current and future roles, development plans are created and monitored.  Change is supported and measured so the individual (and teams) can quantify success.

Two things I say to all my clients are:

  • Start all relationships assuming good intentions
  • Professionally and personally, you will never regret taking the HIGH ROAD
