Describe your coaching style.

Integrate the power of trust and accountability. Be curious and listen to my clients, allow them to be creative, and find answers when they feel that they are stuck.

Who is your ideal client and why?

Someone with a growth mindset and willingness to learn and understand that behaviors, skills, and intelligence can be cultivated and are not set in stone.

How do you measure success with a client?

For personal and professional growth, three things need to occur: 1) Self-awareness allows individuals to identify what they need to learn or change. They cannot change something until they know what needs to be done, 2) Decide if they need to change, and 3) Create a plan that includes stopping, or starting to do something, or continuing and amplifying something they are doing right, and bring accountability for the change to occur. Success can be measured in each of these 3 steps.

What is your coaching superpower?

I am mixing coaching and mentoring during my sessions. My background in running different businesses and working in Human Resources helps me understand what people are experiencing in their careers.
