Master Certified Coach (ICF)
I began leading classes for CoachInc:
Before coaching professionally:
I was an entrepreneurial leader and senior trainer. I led two turnarounds as a coach-approach leader/manager. These experiences built my trust in the power of unleashing people's innate brillance to solve problems and build a vision together. I bring to my coaching a solid business background in high-growth, entrepreneurial companies along with 30 years of personal and spiritual transformation work.
My coaching practice:
I have an international practice, coaching clients throughout North America and internationally from Singapore to Dubai. I partner with successful, passionate self-employed professionals, executives, coaches and people in transition. I love mentoring coaches and take a personal foundation/attraction approach to growing a thriving business. I offer supervision.
Guiding Principle #4 -- People Grow from Connection. I've led coach training classes since 2000 and love fostering a deeper experience of coaching presence and masterful coaching. I personally have grown and transformed tremendously from being in community with coaches and love paying that forward. I was Chapter Co-Host for the Vancouver Coach U Chapter for two years. My vision is a world with a coaching culture.
The most unique quality of my leadership:
I am highly collaborative and catalyze the wisdom of a group into action and results.
What I expect from the coaches on my calls:
Is simply...their best -- their passion, wisdom, experience and leadership -- in each session.
My favorite benefit from leading classes:
Is the dyamic learning environment we create together. I leave each class inspired by the impact coaching is having in the world.
Feedback from students:
People say they find me warm, enthusiastic, light, and challenging. They appreciate the way I dance with the material, weave in experiential learning, and coaching opportunities.
