My objective is to get you thinking and focus on what is important. My promise to you is a safe and open conversation, great questions, challenges to some of the assumptions that you are making and acting upon in your everyday life, a couple of good stories, my best listening, thinking, and, finally serving up some relevant bit of wisdom for you to take away and ponder.
My "coaching philosophy" is based on a strong belief in people and their capacity to do great things. The potential that is represented by the coaching relationship is at once powerful and daunting. Approached with courage and candor, the coaching conversation can explore the possibilities, pose the "big" questions, consider the unknown, and generate a plan. Throughout the process the coach needs to be focused, accountable, and agile. Leadership coaching tends to focus internally and pursue answers to questions that, once answered, enable you to lead with a greater sense of self awareness and authenticity.
