The Intentional Optimist

Change Your Future - Today

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?

 

Andrea is the most positive person I have ever met! She's like the sun, warming your heart with positive energy. She's open to communication and trying new things, has the ability to see the big picture, and encourage you on your path to achieve your goals. I am on a new career path now, thanks to her mentorship. I wish I’d had her as supervisor early in my career!  The sky has no limits, clouds are just stepping stones and storms will pass.  Her “You can do this” attitude is contagious!!

Kathe - Project Coordinator

Andrea has this innate ability to redirect any negative self-talk towards affirmation and motivation and truly mean it.  When you are stuck or lost, she’s there to help you get around that roadblock.  She is absolutely the person that will help you find the map within yourself to get moving towards your goals.   Andrea has helped me see my future and find my voice.

Kim - Manager

Andrea is a compassionate and thoughtful critical thinker.  I love brainstorming with her and often need a partner in brainstorming to move to the next level of something I'm working on.  She listens carefully, takes mental notes, then asks great questions to get me thinking about next steps.  ‘Why do you believe that?  Are you reacting to the words or the person?  Why not now?’  She encourages me to believe in myself, think bigger, and challenge the beliefs that I may be mired in but may not be accurate.

Dawn - Administrator

Andrea and I have been working for over a year now and to say my life has changed is an understatement.  My challenge has always been balance and not only did she teach me how to look at balancing the many “spokes in my wheel” but she also encouraged me to prioritize and readjust with life’s constant changes.  She keeps me grounded and has a unique way of bringing clarity into our conversations.   I would highly recommend her to help you with everything from goal setting to prioritizing and most definitely life balance.

Services Offered

 

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. 

 

The Maxwell DISC Profile Assessment delivers a 30-page detailed report, including your true style, communication insights (for you, and for others), key leadership characteristics, and a personal growth plan map.
