My coaching style is an empathetic, understanding, and transformative coaching style that encourages holistic growth in all areas of a leader's life.
My ideal client is a leader that wants to use their position to make their business, their life, and their employees' lives better in a holistic way that is a win-win for all involved. He believes the workplace is an opportunity to start to make the world a better place for oneself and others.
Success is measured by the degree to which the client can grow into the person who can reach their goals. Success is measured subjectively and objectively as the agreed-upon goals are attained.
I have a knack for finding out what truly motivates my clients... and it is often not what they first say.
