I am an integral coach, working with individuals and teams to help them lead more inspired, engaged and satisfying lives. Coaching helps people define what they want most in life, discover what their obstacles and challenges are,and aids them in achieving their goals by tapping into their innate strengths. Coaching is not consulting or counseling~it's a designed alliance between the coach and the client.
Coaching is based on the premise that YOU are the expert in your own life. You are the only person who knows what you need and can recognize what is best for you. How do you define your personal and professional success? As a coach, it's my role to ask the right questions and provide the right tools and techniques to allow you to find the answers within. I am your wisdom partner in pursuing your goals, here to support, encourage and challenge you.
I use many assessments to support my clients in discovering their strengths and unique qualities. These include the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html, Gallup's "Strengthfinder" http://www.strengthstest.com/theme_summary.php and The Leadership Circle Profile, an excellent 360 feedback tool http://www.theleadershipcircle.com/site/index.htm.
As a leadership coach, I have been involved for four years with Leadership San Juan Islands. I graduated in Class I (2005) and spent the next three years as president of the organization and continue on as faculty. We focus on Community Leadership with a whole systems perspective, seeing the San Juan Islands as a complex system.
