Executive Coaching. While providing strategic direction to the organization, executives have to consider contextual factors in managing interpersonal relations inside and outside the organization, managing team dynamics, and balancing demands for productivity and accountability.  The coaching relationship creates personal space to consider operating context, strategy, relationships and dynamics in the executive role. 

Leadership Coaching. Coaching assists with development of new perspectives and acquisition of new knowledge, skills and behaviors to assist with the actual or anticipated assumption of a new leadership role, whether in a start-up, as an elected official, in a faith-based or community organization, or in a supervisory role at the job.  A collaborative approach is utilized to identify leader needs, goals and values, then determine agendas for coaching sessions to ensure rich discussion regarding the personal and organizational challenges of leadership.

Life Coaching.  Performance opportunities. Transitions in friendships, couple relationships, parenting roles.  School-, work- or opportunity-inspired dislocations and relocations.  Movement in jobs, careers, stages of life.   While each of these transitions presents opportunities for growth, they also present new challenges.  Engagement in goal-focused interactive coaching assists with development of strategies to address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities in ways that are true to your values.
