Life & Relationship Coaching
Every aspect of our lives is defined by our relationships. Whether with a spouse or partner, a child or parent, a co-worker or boss, the success of our connections with others can make or break our happiness in every aspect of our lives. The best relationships begin with self-knowledge, honesty, and a tolerance for potential conflict. In my coaching practice, I work with individuals and couples to get to the heart of potential obstacles, identify what success would look like for them, and begin trusting themselves to approach life with vulnerability, empathy, and resilience.
Why you? What makes you a great leader? What value are you creating? What impact are you making on your organization and team? These are some of the fundamental questions I explore with my clients to help them construct a personal vision and a plan for moving forward as transformative leaders. I excel at working with leaders in mission-driven fields: education, nonprofit service organizations, and entrepreneurs focused on service-oriented products and services. My approach is client-centric, with an emphasis on getting to the core of my client’s leadership identity, values, strengths and goals.
Strategic Communications Consulting
I have spent the last 30 years leading strategic marketing and communications in international development and higher education. My approach to helping teams and organizations plan and improve their communications begins with a focus on meeting those they serve where they are. Too often, I have seen organizations begin with tactics–brochures, websites, social channels, email–without first asking the fundamental questions that will inform their strategy. Who do you want to communicate with, and what do you want them to know, believe, and do? With a little planning and a clear goal in mind, I help organizations start off on the right foot.
