Navigating Professional Development
As a Board Certified Coach, I work with professionals who want to understand and develop their leadership intelligence and/or navigate a career transition. (Please see important information below.) Successful leaders understand three things: themselves, others, and the organizations in which they work. Our work starts by learning about the link between inner perceptions and outer behavior. It builds through awareness of how one's leadership style resonates with others. With increased self-knowledge and greater resonance with others, leaders can navigate organizational structure and create an environment ripe for success!
Perhaps you seek a change in your career would like help to navigate a career transition. Unlike a career counselor, I don't give you career inventory tests that point you to what you "should" be doing. The decision that answers the question, "What's next?," comes from soul-searching conversations, challenging your fears, knowing your strengths, honing your skills and applying them all to the marketplace. Whether you want to change your career, or where you have that career, I help ensure you make a solid decision. If you are thinking about retirement, I can help you with that, too. Many professionals are unsure of what their lives will be like following their careers. I will work with you to help create a non-financial plan. Whatever career stage you are in, I provide guidance, feedback, and accountability to help you realize your goals. For positive, on-going changes, I use this paradigm to help clients track progress:
Identify stumbling blocks
Assess strengths and resources
Determine goals based on strengths, talents, skills, and opportunities
Take action in alignment with values
Monitor progress towards positive chang
I work with you to establish a mutually agreed-upon contract that defines confidentiality, metrics and results. Those who have worked with me find my approach to be candid and supportive, with a healthy does of warmth, curiousity and humor.
If you, or your organization, are interested in coaching services, I would love to hear from you. Please send me an email, including the best way and time to contact you and we will arrange brief discussion. Rates are set according to individual/organizational needs.
Stuffy, but important information: Coaching is not therapy. As such, it is not covered by insurance. If I work with you as a coach, I will not be your therapist. If I believe you would benefit from therapy, I will make a referral. If you are seeing a therapist, I will work with you as a coach regarding your career.
