Realize your True Leadership Potential
Business & Life Coaching Services designed to bring out the best in you
Experience You Can Trust
I started Seattle Coaching with a philosophy of Excellence by Design. I believe that far too many professionals go through their careers and their lives without much needed guidance to realize their true potential as leaders.
Throughout my 30 year career, I have coached leaders at all levels, both in the personal and the professional realm with great success. I have done this by developing trusting relationships and being a respectful truth-teller.
My goal is to help you deepen your learning, achieve higher performance, and improve the quality of your life by raising your self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and by enhancing understanding of your blind spots with strategies to overcome them.
The Coaching Process
My coaching is based on a foundation of trust and unconditional positive regard between us. Here is a simple outline of my process:
We start by validating a mutual connection. We then follow thorough a fluid process which leads to you attaining clearly defined and measurable results.
Coaching calls are confidential telephone conversations to help you think through the best solutions to your personal, professional, or leadership challenges so that you know with confidence what to do next.
We will structure our session as follows:
At Seattle Coaching it's not about solving problems, it's about transformational change
I work with you to assess your current situation by listening to you and soliciting feedback from key stakeholders in your professional life. This holistic approach confirms alignment or dissonance and guides us in creating a path to achieving your leadership goals. Some of the best companies & leaders around the world rely on coaches to attain optimal performance.
I help you transition from being stuck, overwhelmed and uncertain, to discovering your true self. I engage you by respectfully challenging assumptions that no longer serve you while guiding you in cultivating a deep reserve of self-compassion. Together we create & execute a plan which delivers transformational results in your life.

The Role of Vulnerability in Leadership
Vulnerability humanizes the leader and is a key ingredient in creating psychological safety for teams.
