Corporate & Professional Coaching

Who is Corporate Coaching for?

  • You work in a company of any size. You may be in middle or lower management role, in a more entry-level position, or in a completely unique role that doesn’t fit in a structure.
  • You may be feeling stuck, lost, overwhelmed, frustrated, under-utilized, or any other range of emotions and feelings that can come up in a work situation that isn’t quite fitting for some reason.
  • You may not be feeling very motivated, passionate or excited about your work, your position or your role.
  • You may be struggling with dynamics in working relationships, with your boss, peers, direct reports or other members of your team.
  • You may not feel that you’re growing or that your growth is a priority in your organization.
  • You work situation is likely affecting the rest of your life – relationships, taking care of yourself, your overall mood and disposition.
  • You may not feel that you have the right support in place around you – you are having to carry too much of the weight or maybe you’re not feeling trusted to carry enough of it.
  • You may feel frustrated with a lack of clarity around your role and the roles of others.
  • You may not like doing a lot of the work that is within your role and responsibilities.
  • You may be questioning whether this is the right job for you, or how you can do the job differently so it somehow works better for you or how you can be better at your job and find more success.

What you can Expect

  • You will feel re-energized, motivated and excited about your work.
  • You will have a deep understanding of where the friction and obstacles you are experiencing are really coming from and how you can address them and allow them to fall away.
  • You will understand your values, passions, your desires, your greatest strengths and skills.
  • You will have a greater understanding of what does and does not work for you in your working environment, within your role, and the elements and methods that work best for you.
  • You will both understand and be able to communicate your needs and boundaries.
  • You will be able to communicate with your manager and the organization how you’d like to shift and shape your role to be more fulfilling, exciting, and aligned with your strengths, your gifts and your personal and professional goals (which you will have defined).
  • You will learn how to take care of yourself and find some work/life balance.
  • You won’t feel alone. You will have a sounding board, a container for venting, an accountability buddy, an advisor, an advocate, and a cheerleader.
  • You will experience change VERY quickly.

How it Works

  • I build custom packages for my Corporate & Professional Coaching Clients based on your situation and needs. I work with companies and organizations that bring me on to coach their employees and I also work with professionals that hire me directly.
  • A typical Corporate or Professional coaching relationship involves weekly phone coaching sessions with some email work and check-ins in between and usually lasts around 6 months.

I offer free 30-minute consultations to anyone interested in working with me or in learning more about what I can offer.

What is a Coach?

I am asked this question frequently and the answer to will differ depending on the coach you’re asking. Who I am as a coach is largely about my style (see About), but there are a few basic descriptions that can help…

A coach is just like an athletic coach. I am on your team. I am pushing you. I am supporting you. I am helping you to develop your strengths and unique gifts and working with you to overcome weaknesses and struggles.

Many people ask about the difference between a coach and a therapist. There are similarities and some big differences:

  • Coaching is forward-focused. In my work with clients, obstacles may arise that are rooted in the past, and we will take a look at those and move through them. We focus on moving forward vs. focusing on or dwelling in the past.
  • Coaches can relate, which leads to a different kind of relationship. I do not have to keep my experiences out of our coaching sessions. I will be transparent, open and honest with you about what I’ve experienced as well as what I notice for you. This allows you to feel supported, heard and not alone.
  • Coaches push. I am not going to just listen. I am going to truly question you and help you make change.

Coaches are not experts, and I’m certainly not claiming to be one. I don’t have everything “figured out” or “mastered,” but I have both the experience and training to help you through it.
