Coaching approach

People can change. In fact, sometimes, people can change dramatically. I make this statement with confidence because I have had the privilege of partnering with individuals, teams and organizations that have seen their greatest goals realized. Coaching can be the catalyst to profoundly shift the trajectory of a person’s life and change a company’s culture. Our process is a holistic, results-oriented approach based on sound, theoretical frameworks that deliver. We target behavioral systemic change and broaden observational perspectives. We challenge and test hidden assumptions and use metrics to evaluate and measure results. Finally, we leverage our expertise in the fields of neuroscience, mindfulness, human behavior, cognitive psychology, systems theory, ontology, change models, leadership and organizational dynamics.
