Coaching, to me, is about forward progress and forward momentum. Together, we create movement from A (where you are today) to B (where you want to be). Making this progress in an authentic way reflects your unique brilliance as a human being.
Two foundational philosophies drive my work:
- People are creative, resourceful and whole. You have everything you need to get what you want. There’re no flaws and nothing broken about you; you do not need to be fixed. But you do need a genuine desire to stretch and grow and understand what’s holding you back.
- We make more progress and faster progress focusing on our strengths than trying to fix our weaknesses. The research is clear now, and I find it true in my work, that when we lean into what makes us uniquely brilliant, we are able to achieve a lot more, perform better, and be more fulfilled in our work. I’m not saying we ignore what we’re not good at. Instead, we mitigate for those things so we can spend our time and energy on those things at which we’re innately talented.
