How do you approach coaching?

I embrace a versatile and adaptable coaching approach. During our sessions, I take on various roles tailored to your needs. After collaboratively setting your goals and determining your vision of success, I craft a personalized roadmap designed to guide you toward your objectives. Throughout our journey together, we prioritize what matters most to you, ensuring our focus remains aligned with your aspirations. As your coach, I serve as your mentor, guide, and advisor, wearing these hats to empower you at every step. My ultimate aim is to awaken your inherent potential, helping you realize and fully leverage the talents and capabilities within you. 

We will focus our time together answering these questions:

How do you approach team culture work?

Collaboration is key when designing interventions with teams. I partner closely with the team leader(s) to create an impactful experience customized to the needs and goals of the group or organization. By fostering a foundation of trust and psychological safety with the team, we lay the groundwork for open communication and collaboration. Then we can dig deeper to more effectively navigate challenges and capitalize on strengths. The ultimate goal of these engagements is to improve collective performance, strengthen relationships, and achieve better outcomes.
