What exactly is Coaching?

Through coaching, individuals and teams are supported in a dynamic process of exploration. Coaching encourages individuals to probe their personal and professional aspirations, defining experiences, and strategies for personal learning in pursuit of increased impact and effectiveness.

Coaching uses guided inquiry to assist clients in accessing their capacity to challenge assumptions, explore new approaches, make bold decisions and achieve personally-meaningful goals.

“As a coach I am committed to connecting people to their purpose and possibilities. I serve as partner to my clients, helping them explore their personal vision and life goals, their professional skills, career aspirations and the impact they hope to achieve over their careers. I strive to help my clients define their leadership values and style in a way that brings clarity, commitment and courage to their work and, most importantly, as they live their lives.”
