Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.

My coaching involves the ability to understand you: to think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, I will place another perspective on top of yours – stretching and growing you to gently see a more empowering way. As a certified John Maxwell coach, I can see what you are going through now and what is up ahead. Coaching is foreseeing, paving the way, coming alongside you while helping you achieve goals and overcome limiting paradigms.

I offer several levels of coaching support:

Individual Coaching – one on one private and confidential coaching

When I am working with you one-on-one, it is my highest objective to help you reach your purpose, vision and goals by working through John Maxwell’s programs specific to your needs. Together, we will create a strategic, powerful plan for you to gain clarity through a weekly process including, interaction and accountability.

What are you doing to invest in others?

Group Coaching – small setting onsite or via webinar and video technology

When I am working in a group setting – although it’s not singular in nature – having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create. The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.

Life & Personal Coaching:

What are the Benefits Coaching is a powerful conversation and support system intended to help you walk your unique path to success. As the client, you are responsible for the results you receive as a result of coaching. Coaching:

  • Helps you discover how to become more of who you need to be to achieve the results you want and identify what you may need to do differently.
  • The primary benefits of coaching are being able to get clarity and make purposeful, strategic decisions, break through obstacles, and experience your potential more easily
    than you would without coaching. Coaching will help you:

The DISC profile is a non-judgmental tool used for discussion of people’s behavioral differences. If you participate in a DiSC program, you’ll be asked to complete a series of questions that produce a detailed report about your personality and behavior. You’ll also receive tips related to working with people of other styles. 

The DISC model provides a common language that people can use to better understand themselves and to adapt their behaviors with others — within a work team, a sales relationship, a leadership position, or other relationships. 

What type of training?

DiSC profiles help you and your team:

    causes you stress, and how you solve problems
  • Improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of team
  • Facilitate better teamwork and teach productive conflict
  • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
  • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees
    and team members

Sees the big picture, Can be blunt, Accepts challenges, Gets straight to the point
Influence: Person places emphasis on influencing or persuading others, openness, relationships
