Integrative Life Coaching for Individuals It can be difficult to sort out priorities and figure out why you feel stuck or off course. Using integrative coaching skills, I can focus on improvements in personal, executive, and leadership functions.

The process of coaching includes:

  • Initial deep listening sessions including
    • Mutual understanding of issues to be addressed such as stress management, self-care, wellbeing, time management, and improved relationships
    • Setting goals, frequency, time, location, and number of sessions.
  • In each session we collaboratively
    • Review current situations
    • Find methods of evaluating opportunities and threats
    • Review goals, possibly including journaling or graphic exercises
  • Also, rehearse challenging interactions
  • Conclude with a final meeting, a summary, and suggested next steps

Organizational Change Management Working with people to manage change is one of my specialties. Yet, change is a constant today. The major challenge is usually not changing technology, or changing demands.  The difficulty is the people who must make change happen and the people who have to actually change. Change is difficult. But, today it is always happening. I offer these packages to help people with that process.
