Coaching?

The International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

I define it as a co-created partnership with you, who desires (and is ready!) to look at the many aspects of your life and make change to come alive, live fully alive and make a difference in the world. I will support you in challenging assumptions, clearing blocks and shining light on a path forward and plan of action that reflects your values, life missions, and priorities.

Coaching brings new perspective to where you are at, and helps you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. The coaching relationship has no place for judgment, and provides a safe place to process, feel, create awareness, succeed, and take action.

Some cool things about coaching: • Complete focus on YOU and YOUR agenda • Objectivity and a fresh perspective not affected by any history • No unsolicited advice • Nonjudgmental approach • Oriented towards the future, not the past • Willingness to challenge you and help you honor your commitments to yourself • Deep belief in your inner knowing and ability to succeed • Strict confidentiality • Accountability

You can achieve:  Clarity, meaning and fulfillment • Less stress and worry • Stronger, healthier relationships • Greater personal and professional success • Purpose, direction, confidence • Better understanding of my strengths as a conscious entrepreneur • Making ideas happen!

I specialize in working with individuals and entrepreneurs with values centered in “good-for-the-world” (environmental justice, social justice, health/wellness, local, fair trade, organic, creative, sustainability, etc) Together we will focus on amplifying your strengths, and develop skills that work with your values, and look at all aspects of developing a successful and impactful business from the inside out.

We can all use what we are good at and passionate about for good!
