My Approach to Coaching & Training
Because of my long history of the exploration of human consciousness and methods and techniques available for use with clients, I coach toward personal excellence and optimal living in life and work.
My approach is not formulaic or technique driven, but my goal for each client or group I work with is to experience a higher sense of purpose, awareness, and meaning making in their most important endeavors.
I believe that a sense of personal leadership is the key — as leadership is an activity…not a position. When working with clients, I do so in the context of Leadership Alchemy, a transformational viewpoint of blending different strengths and gifts of the person into a new life experience that moves them into a designed future that was not available before.
ALCHEMY: from the Arabic word AL-Kimia, alchemy refers to a medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. It was concerned particularly with attempts to convert base metals into gold or to find a universal elixir.
I use explorations of metaphors that arise in one’s life, or create metaphors through guided imagery and photographic cards to open consciousness and gain wisdom from the right brain — and intuitive wisdom that arises through these practices.
