ICF Master Certified Coach
If Not Now, When?
When I started my career as a CPA and business consultant, I was fortunate to work for an accounting firm that recognized we were working with people, not numbers. Beyond the basics, we worked with our clients to better understand their business and create a clear path to success. We also frequently discussed communication skills, personal balance, and how to have and enjoy a great life. We were practicing a rudimentary form of coaching.
In 1994 I was introduced to professional coaching. I realized I could expand the conversations I was having with clients to all areas of their lives. Drawing on the skills I learned in extensive coaching training, I grew conversations with my clients beyond finances to everything that enhanced or inhibited success.
I’ve broadened my facilitation skills with formal training and have added mastermind groups to the services I offer clients. Some people work best in a one-on-one setting, and some prefer working in a group. I always want to adapt to the needs of the people I serve.
We all have blind spots and limiting beliefs. Often these are what hinder our success. My role is to help clients see from a different perspective: To challenge beliefs, assumptions, and behaviors that may be getting in their way. I bring objectivity, independence, and confidentiality to the relationship. I am direct and honest with my clients. My role isn’t to tell them what they want to hear — it’s to say what I see from my perspective. I’m caring and supportive, yet I also challenge my clients to go for their dreams…to always PUSH the Envelope™.
There are many paths to success and happiness. Just because you’re not on the same path as everyone else doesn’t mean you’re lost. As your coach or facilitator, I’ll help you find what’s right for you. I bring all my skills, training, experience, and heart to PUSH the Envelope™, whether it’s coaching or in a mastermind group. My one goal is the success of each and every client or group member.
