- Is this the right professional path for me? If not, what’s next?
- What is an effective, yet authentic, leadership style for me?
- How do I manage all of my work relationships?
- How do I keep up my energy and interest without burning out?
- Am I giving enough time to everything outside of my work life?
- Which personal goals I have put off?

The groundwork for private coaching takes place during 1-2 introductory Foundation Sessions, during which we identify the themes and set the goals for the coaching engagement. We recommend these goals be aligned with the performance objective for your position or business, as well as the personal goals you have for yourself.
Thereafter, coaching typically takes place by phone or in person, twice a month for 45-minute or 60-minute sessions. Our relationship and schedule will be customized to suit your needs.
You’ll bring a topic to address each session, and while addressing that specific issue we will always be connecting that topic back to your longer-term goals. You’ll leave each session with specific action items to accomplish, inquiries to consider, and accountability measures between you and your coach. Between sessions, your coach will support you through email and brief phone calls as needed.
For maximum impact, a minimum 3-6 month commitment is strongly recommended. For clients with very specific short-term goals, individual drop-in sessions are available.
