My services

As a coach, I am an agent of change.  Anyone interested in coaching is interested in making a change of some kind in their lives.  My passion and purpose is to provide you with the coaching you need to live your best life.  The categories below describe the types of coaching I provide.  I offer coaching in packages of 4 – 6 sessions at a time, and we work on your agenda to achieve your goals.

As your coach, I will partner with you to develop a vision and a plan to get you to your end goals.  I will work with you to develop an action plan and accompany you as you execute it.  I will be there to celebrate successes and milestones along the way, and to hold you accountable when things don’t go as planned.  If you get stuck along the way, I will work with you to find a way to move forward.  I will be your thinking partner as you create and achieve a future state for yourself.

Leadership Development

Whether you supervise individuals and teams, or see yourself as an emerging leader in your company, I can get you to that next level that  you seek.  With me you will clarify your beliefs and values and use these to develop a vision for yourself, your team, or your office.  We will work to  increase your confidence, professional presence, self awareness, self management, social awareness, or relationship management as you develop your own leadership style.

Conflict Management

I can also work with you on conflict management skills by identifying your preferred conflict management style, learning how to “flex” to other styles, preparing for difficult conversations, and debriefing on the experience afterwards.  Holding challenging conversations with direct reports, peers, or your supervisor can be very difficult; you don’t have to do it alone.

Career Development

Are you going through a career transition of some kind, or wish to envision a future for yourself?  Where do you see yourself in 10 years?  Or maybe you already know where you want to go, but are not sure how to get there.  Whether you need to clarify the end destination or the path to get there, I will work with you to envision the goal and chart the path.  If you are at a point where you are scheduling interviews, we can role play the interview process to practice before the event itself, and debrief on the experience afterwards.

Work/Life Balance

Do you have a family at home and also strive to build a career?  Managing family and work responsibilities concurrently can be a challenge, especially for new parents, or parents with young children.  It can also be difficult to maintain a sense of self separate from family and work, and VERY easy to over commit in one direction or the other.  I will work with you to identify your core priorities and set boundaries that work for you, as well as identify ways to make sure you don’t forget to take care of YOU along the way.

Life Purpose

This is the topic that brought me to coaching in the first place.  Have you been wondering lately why you are here, why you were put on this earth?  What are you going to do with your life and why?

Are you hearing a call to go in a certain direction?  I would love to be your guide in thinking through your life purpose.

Strategic Facilitation

I have designed and facilitated retreats for Federal agencies and small non-profits alike in DC, Thailand Mexico and Egypt.  If you are a non-profit organization interested in hiring an expert facilitator for a strategic visioning or planning retreat, I will design the sessions, prepare the materials, and guide your group through a process to achieve the outcomes you seek.
