Coaching Services

I approach coaching as a partnership, and believe that creating awareness through coaching and feedback is a powerful way to access a wealth of untapped potential. My role is to challenge and support you to take action and achieve your desired outcomes. I do this by applying coaching methods that challenge you to explore new possibilities and to experience transformational change in what you do.


  • An example engagement would start with a 90-minute initial coaching
    conversation to establish the client’s context, goals and challenges.
    • This is followed by a series of 45-60 minute coaching conversations over a period of three to six months, at two- to three-week intervals.
    • Between sessions, the client is responsible for taking action, reflecting on their learning, and preparing for the next session.
    • I curate and share supplemental resources and offer additional support as needed between sessions.
    • Upon completion, clients continue to have access to coaching services on an ad hoc basis, or they may choose to re-engage as their circumstances change.

Groups or Teams

  • Custom programs for workgroups or teams are designed to meet the needs of
    the organization and may include collective and individual assessments to
    enhance team dynamics and individual learning.
