TGIF! I’m pleased to launch my new scope of services today. 

In the past 4 months, I’ve been able to spend time with my family, travel, teach, and study.  I’ve had a wonderful time—and I’m ready to get back into the fray and help the social good sector, where I’ve spent my entire career. I think the summer is a great time to take stock of where your career is headed, and what your plans might be for the fall and beyond.

Specifically, I’ll be helping organizations and professionals figure out the following types of transitions, as a career coach and confidante:

  • Large organizational personnel shifts/changes
  • Preparing for promotions (obtained or desired)
  • Reviewing and evaluating new job/position choices
  • Leaving a position and/or organization
  • Supporting new executive directors/presidents
  • Negotiating a new position and/or salary
  • Addressing burnout
  • Navigating through conflict/difficult work situations
  •  Developing an enhanced leadership presence

My approach to coaching involves supporting, challenging, and asking the right questions of my clients, within a relationship of equals. I provide a safe space to land, so that you can continue to do the very important work of helping others!

Multi-hour coaching packages are available, for the best value and savings!
