About me

COULD A CONVERSATION CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

WHY WORK WITH ME?

Because I believe that everyone, despite personal circumstances or life challenges have a unique set of gifts and capabilities that are there waiting to be harnessed. Sometimes the challenges of life get in the way of fully realizing our gifts and talents.

And if you are a human being living on planet earth we are all blessed with challenges and obstacles no matter how successful and accomplished we are.

I have spent the last 15+ years developing innovative ways to grow and help others. I'm passionate about living with great purpose and I'm insatiably focused on helping others do the same. There's nothing more liberating and inspiring than seeing my clients come alive by the discovery of a way how.

Trauma and negative change creates circumstances in life you don’t choose. Healing is about embracing real change you do choose.

I can help you to work less, stress less, BE and DO more with YOUR life...

What I have noticed about human behavior

Most people are spending their time and energies in the wrong place

People tend to not focus their time, energy, business, and interpersonal relationships effectively because of learned habits and behaviors that have proven NOT to serve their greatest good.

These habits are hard to break not because people don't want to or don't have the ability to it is because our brain is wired to follow habits and patterns of behavior even if the behaviors prove to be detrimental to our relationships, finances, career, and health.

Most people create their own strategies based what they observe from others (parents, co-workers, etc) and do not see the "forest from the trees" when learning more effective ways of managing stress, work pressures and relationships.

Who wants to just 'get by'?

We all have a need to make a difference for ourselves, our families and our communities, yet the ability to do this doesn't find itself anywhere near 'getting by'. At some stage we all ask ourselves - what difference do I make to my world? Am I heard by those around me?

Philosophers and psychologists have studied mindset for centuries, but the past decade has seen a real interest in the ability to change your mind at will.

So whether you are here to figure out the best way to get through a difficult season in your life, create more focus, unlock the grip of self sabotage, begin to thrive after a major life trauma, or navigate the corporate ladder, or live out your purpose, you're in the right place.

Coaching with me

RESULTS & GOALS

Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles. Consistent with a commitment to enhancing their personal effectiveness, they can also expect to see appreciable results in the areas of productivity, personal satisfaction with life and work, and the achievement of personally relevant goals.

HOW I LIKE TO COACH

My style:

My no-nonsense coaching style is experiential through conversation and active listening.

My approach:

What fears are holding you back, how do you self-sabotage? When you find yourself upset and angry, what are the values that you are unconsciously and how can you incorporate them to come to a resolution that maintains your own personal strength and integrity?
One of the things that people really appreciate about working with me is that I don't need to hear about the context of what you are going through.
I don't need all the details of your story in order to be effective. It can be very comforting for a perspective client to know that it is not necessary to dig up all of the past in order to move forward today.

I pay attention to the structure of the 'issues'. I pay attention to the HOW that supports the pattern of behavior or thinking, in order for it to remain. When we discover the unconscious or subconscious (however you think about it) programs and patterns that are in play, we can then insert options and other possibilities which impact your results. And when we make shifts in the structure of the problem, you don't have to consciously "remember to be different" - you simply operate from a new pattern - a new way of being that supports how you want to live your life.

We notice our limitations and the walls we hit in both personal and professional aspects of our lives. Here are just a couple that I notice on a daily basis.

In your personal life do you find you are:

1.Concerned about what other people think or say about you?
2.Putting yourself second, third or more commonly, LAST?
3.Unhappy with your physical health and yet not doing anything about it?
4.Judgemental towards others and their choices?
5.Stuck in an unpleasant mood or emotion such as shame, guilt, grief, jealousy, hurt, or loneliness?
6.Uncomfortable talking to new people or asking for help?
7.Often blaming the situation, other people or your 'bad luck' for what goes wrong?
8.Wishing and hoping for things to be different?
9. In your professional life is it familiar for you to:
10.Be nervous when asked to speak to a group?
11.Procrastinate and put off tasks?
12.Second guess or doubt your decisions and abilities?
13.Hesitate or not ask for assistance because it might not "look good"?
14.Get frustrated and feel dumped on?
15.Feel upset when someone else seems to be on a power trip?
16.Wish you had more confidence and self esteem?
17.Look down on other people and compare yourself?

My philosophy is that as humans, it is our responsibility to seek the help we need when you need it. Fundamentally, life is meant to be peaceful, enjoyable, rewarding, fun, connected and fulfilling among many other wonderful things. If yours is not, let me help you discover how to shift so you can begin living the life you deserve.

What are typically some reasons someone might work with a coach:

• There is something at stake (a challenge, stretch, goal or opportunity), and it is urgent, compelling or exciting or all of the above
• There is a gap in knowledge, skills, confidence, or resources
• A big stretch is being asked or required, and it is time sensitive
• There is a desire to accelerate results
• There is a need for a course correction in work or life due to a setback
• An individual has a style of relating that is ineffective or is not supporting the achievement of one’s personally relevant goals
• There is a lack of clarity, and there are choices to be made
• The individual is extremely successful, and success has started to become problematic
• Work and life are out of balance, and this is creating unwanted consequences
• One has not identified his or her core strengths and how best to leverage them
• The individual desires work and life to be simpler, less complicated
• There is a need and a desire to better organized and more self-managing


How is Coaching Delivered?

The Coaching Process — Coaching typically begins with a personal interview (either face-to-face or by teleconference call) to assess the individual’s current opportunities and challenges, define the scope of the relationship, identify priorities for action, and establish specific desired outcomes. Subsequent coaching sessions may be conducted in person or over the telephone, with each session lasting a previously established length of time. Between scheduled coaching sessions, the individual may be asked to complete specific actions that support the achievement of one’s personally prioritized goals. The coach may provide additional resources in the form of relevant articles, checklists, assessments, or models, to support the individual’s thinking and actions. The duration of the coaching relationship varies depending on the individual’s personal needs and preferences.

Assessments — A variety of assessments are available to support the coaching process, depending upon the needs and circumstances of the individual. Assessments provide objective information which can enhance the individual’s self-awareness as well as awareness of others and their circumstances, provide a benchmark for creating coaching goals and actionable strategies, and offer a method for evaluating progress.

Concepts, models and principles — A variety of concepts, models and principles drawn from the behavioral sciences, management literature, spiritual traditions and/or the arts and humanities, may be incorporated into the coaching conversation in order to increase the individual’s self-awareness and awareness of others, foster shifts in perspective, promote fresh insights, provide new frameworks for looking at opportunities and challenges, and energize and inspire the individual’s forward actions.

Appreciative approach — Coaching incorporates an appreciative approach. The appreciative approach is grounded in what’s right, what’s working, what’s wanted, and what’s needed to get there. Using an appreciative approach, the coach models constructive communication skills and methods the individual or team can utilize to enhance personal communication effectiveness. The appreciative approach incorporates discovery-based inquiry, proactive (as opposed to reactive) ways of managing personal opportunities and challenges, constructive framing of observations and feedback in order to elicit the most positive responses from others, and envisioning success as contrasted with focusing on problems. The appreciative approach is simple to understand and employ, but its effects in harnessing possibility thinking and goal-oriented action can be profound.

What does someone look for in a coach?

The most important thing to look for in selecting a coach is someone with whom you feel you can easily relate create and the most powerful partnership. Here are some questions you may want to ask prospective coaches:

• What is your coaching experience? (number of individuals coaches, years of experience, types of situations)

• What is your coach specific training?

• What is your coaching specialty or client areas you most often work in?

• What specialized skills or experience do you bring to your coaching?

• What is your philosophy about coaching?

• What is your specific process for coaching? (how sessions are conducted, frequency, etc.)

• What are some coaching success stories? (specific examples of individuals who have done well and examples of how you have added value)

How long does someone work with an individual?

The length of a coaching partnership varies depending on the individual's or team’s needs and preferences. For certain types of focused coaching, 3 to 6 months of working with a coach may work. For other types of coaching, people may find it beneficial to work with a coach for a longer period. Factors that may impact the length of time include: the types of goals, the ways individuals or teams like to work, the frequency of coaching meetings, and financial resources available to support coaching.

The role of the coach is to provide objective assessment and observations that foster the individual’s or team members’ enhanced self-awareness and awareness of others, practice astute listening in order to garner a full understanding of the individual’s or team’s circumstances, be a sounding board in support of possibility thinking and thoughtful planning and decision making, champion opportunities and potential, encourage stretch and challenge commensurate with personal strengths and aspirations, foster the shifts in thinking that reveal fresh perspectives, challenge blind spots in order to illuminate new possibilities, and support the creation of alternative scenarios. Finally, the coach maintains professional boundaries in the coaching relationship, including confidentiality, and adheres to the coaching profession’s code of ethics.

Within the partnership what does the coach do? The individual?

The role of the individual or team is to create the coaching agenda based on personally meaningful coaching goals, utilize assessment and observations to enhance self-awareness and awareness of others, envision personal and/or organizational success, assume full responsibility for personal decisions and actions, utilize the coaching process to promote possibility thinking and fresh perspectives, take courageous action in alignment with personal goals and aspirations, engage big picture thinking and problem solving skills, and utilize the tools, concepts, models and principles provided by the coach to engage effective forward actions.

PROFESSIONAL AND LIFE EXPERIENCE


Over 10 years ago I experienced tragedy in my life that I thought would never recover from (the details of which are not important). My life was literally disintegrating before my eyes. In the midst of my darkest days I would wake up two or three times a night (for months) rushing to the toilet just to throw up in utter fear and terror.

I was, in so many words deeply entangled in a hermetical Bermuda triangle of self pity, deep foreboding, sorrow, and noxious anger. I was completely unaware of an unconscionably menacing tempest of (self perpetuated) victim-hood brewing inside me. It's purpose was to only destroy my sense of self and take away my ability to navigate through life. It was if my life was on auto-tragedy mode (even years after the storm had passed) which would only serve to destroy the most important people in my life (my family and friends) who loved me unconditionally and stood by me unconditionally.

And I have only to blame myself for creating my victim-hood. My family became the proverbial trash receptacle for the past disaster and I punished them veraciously with my toxic hopelessness. I was like that detestable main character Melvin Ferd in the B movie classic, "The Toxic Avenger." Only instead of channeling my anger, sorrow, and desperation into strength (as a survivor) I shared the toxic sludge of victim-hood with everyone around me.

And then one day I got quiet. I stepped out of the victim role

I became healthy again. I started to focus on moving forward with my life again.

And that is how I was able to see for the first time that the noise of tragedy and hopelessness in my head was not my reality. It was just noise.

I allowed myself to focus less on what happened. I started living again. I earned a master's degree, moved to California, and created a thriving practice.

And None of this could of happened without working with a Coach

I am forever indebted to my coach, colleague, and good friend Dr. Joe for helping me get out of my head and my own way.

And yes, it did not happen overnight. It took alot of hard work, money, and grit. It was the best money I ever spent. And it was through working with a coach I discovered my passion for helping others. For the first time in a long I am getting paid to do what I love doing, seeing the talents, gifts, and resilience in people that they don't see in themselves (but will get there from working with me

It has been over ten years since overcoming a life event that I thought I would never recover form again, Today I run a thriving coaching practice and share my life with a wonderful woman. I bask in every lucky moment., no matter how small.

I look forward to harnessing your own internal resilience as my client. So what are you waiting for?
