My mother was an amazing woman. As an expatriate, in Seoul, Korea, she had the opportunity to be in charge of all the American Red Cross volunteers for East Asia, and function as the project manager on a 16 unit townhome construction project - while finally finishing her college degree.
But when she returned to the States, she spent the rest of her career operating at a much lower level - as an administrative assistant. It still upsets me when I think of the wasted opportunity for the world to be led by her expertise and strength - and yet I found myself headed down the same road.
But I decided that would not be my story.
And now it doesn’t have to be yours either.
As your coach, I’ll open your eyes to all that's possible. We’ll uncover your dreams, goals, fears, and how to conquer them. I’m here to help you see that no matter what messages you’ve received in the past, it’s time to find your voice and change your future.
So, how fulfilling is your work?
Have your circumstances caused you to reorder your priorities?
Are you ready to make some changes?
We are in a new, and unique time. The old models of who will lead, and how they lead, aren’t solving today’s problems.
The world needs strong women to lead with grace, unafraid to be exactly who they are created to be, doing the good work they are created to do.
Because here’s the thing -
Your time has come.
YOU are the answer.
YOU are the future of leadership and the role models for future generations.
Are you ready to change your life?
Are you ready to:
Openly and freely share your knowledge, wisdom, and experience in order to serve and help others?
Step, courageously, out of the shadows - at home, at work, in your community - serving in ways you never imagined possible?
Model the way for others?
To embrace and celebrate exactly who you are?
Commit to a completely different future?
I can help you with that.
I work with women, just like you, transforming you into an amazing connector, communicator, and leader.
Are you ready to take on new challenges? Are you prepared to stretch yourself to achieve them?
Let’s book a time to discuss how we can make it happen, and change your future today.
Coaching: I offer general life and leadership coaching, focused on long-term, lasting change including stepping into leadership roles.
Coaching is about change - developing emotional intelligence and awareness. Ultimately understanding who you are, that you have control over how you show up, in every area of your life, and the ability to achieve any result or goal you choose. Coaching is a marathon, rather than a sprint, designed to help you achieve your goals efficiently and permanently.
As your coach, I provide content, insight, tools, wisdom, framework, ideas, and feedback. Your responsibility is to be open and move into action and accountability. Together, we’ll create structures for you to meet your goals and achieve the results you’re looking for.
Tools: I use a variety of tools to assist you in determining your direction and goals, including:
Maxwell Method of DISC Behavioral Assessment
DISC Debrief (1-2 sessions), personal walkthrough of the 30-page report
Creation of a Personal Development Plan based on your DISC assessment;
Values Assessment, alignment, and prioritization;
Weekly 1:1 coaching via Zoom or telephone;
Emails and texts as needed.
Where to begin?
What if you could tap into your greatest motivations, dramatically improve your relationships, and accelerate your results?
The John Maxwell Team DISC Behavior Analysis Report gives you insight into your own personality and communication style and helps you map out a plan for personal and professional growth.
Are YOU ready to grow?
Everyone you encounter is motivated differently, communicates differently, and views tasks and relationships differently. The Maxwell DISC Profile Assessment will help you achieve greater success when you learn to value your strengths as well as those of others. The first step in any personal growth journey is self-awareness.
