What is Coaching?

"Let the gentle bush dig its root deep and spread upward to split the boulder."    Carl Sandburg


Coaching nudges one to go below the surface of the issue -- to dig deep in order to overcome obstacles and achieve profound, lasting change.

Do you know who you want to be?

What you want to do with your life?

How you want to show up for others?

Are you stuck somewhere on that path?


Coaching can help you to...

  • improve your performance

  • develop clarity in your aspirational goals

  • move beyond that stuck space

  • provide structure and accountability in goal setting

  • identify resources and overcome obstacles along the way

  • celebrate your progress and maximize your motivation

  • foster sustainability of your growth
