Why are you here?

Perhaps you’re struggling to be the leader that others expect you to be. And that you expect of yourself.

You know there’s some development work to be done, a growth path to follow. But you're unsure how to define it, who to talk to about it, or what it might look like.

You need someone in your corner — a leadership coach.

Coaching conversations are a safe, confidential space for these vital, sometimes difficult discussions.

Together, we can activate a concrete plan to build the skills needed to become the leader you aspire to be.

Where to start with leadership coaching?

How do you find the coach that’s right for you?

Take these 3 steps

Verify their experience and qualifications.

Anyone can call themselves a “coach,” but are they certified? How much relevant professional experience have they got? Are they regularly investing in their own personal development?

Talk to them.

Do they offer a free consultation? Is there a fit? What do your heart and gut tell you about this coach? Do they “get” you? Do their questions make you pause and reflect?

Ask for a written proposal

It should include a detailed description of the coaching arrangement, timelines, costs, and a confidentiality guarantee.

Making it Work

Today’s leaders have so much to do and so little time. But that doesn’t mean you can’t invest in yourself and your professional development! By working together to design your daily practices, we’ll ensure that they’re practical, valuable and achievable.

Why me?

I’ve been a coach for almost 40 years.

It started with soccer, herding five-year-old butterfly chasers. Over the next 20 years as a certified coach, I experienced the joy of engaging with every age group through to college varsity men’s and women’s teams.
