Individual Coaching Services

OfficeWe begin with what matters most to you. Conscious attention is given to your well-being, how you want to lead your life and thrive at work. Change is the constant for all of us. Making lifestyle changes and learning mindfulness – in all its simplicity – helps us more gracefully ride the waves of change and recalibrate our innate resiliency for thriving. Here are some things we will cover in our sessions:

  • It all begins with training your mind.
  • Mindfulness supports your body’s well-being and healthier lifestyle choices.
  • Gaining confidence for making difficult decisions.
  • Acquiring resiliency skills for effectiveness at work.
  • Integrating practices that support your leading with excellence.

For best results, you are invited to consider meeting twice a month, for three months. One month is too short a time to fully realize benefits for achieving your goals. Coaching sessions are offered in person at my office or via video conferencing/telephone. Coaching times are available between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

My coaching provides:

  • Courage for making aligned choices
  • Educational resources for a healthy lifestyle
  • Mindfulness practices for managing stress, improving focus, and inner peace
  • Strategies for developing meaningful relationships
  • Communication techniques for leading with more confidence
