Discovery Session - Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching, Mentoring
I am curious to know why you want to engage a coach and if we mutually believe that we will be a good match. I will describe the coaching process and my coaching style along with explaining what to expect from coaching. This is a free session that I require prior to signing up for one of my coaching packages.
Setting Achievable (and a few Audacious) Goals - Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching, Mentoring
You will identify and be able to articulate what you hope to accomplish professionally and personally. We will prepare a concrete plan for tracking and achieving both realistic goals and “audacious” goals- ones that will require you to reach beyond what you think might be possible.
The Best Me I Can Be - Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching, Health Coaching, Mentoring
You will work on identifying what you really want in life and define the steps needed to get there. I will guide you in developing criteria that will help you prioritize what is important to you. We will address the obstacles you might face and practice ways to help you overcome them.
Career Growth and Transitions - Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching, Mentoring
You will focus on learning how to cope and succeed in difficult work environments and/or identify what type of work would be fulfilling and what steps you can take to initiate a career transition. I will review your resume and a cover letter and even help you prepare for an interview.
Coaching speciality details
I have a genuine and heartfelt interest in inspiring others to maximize their personal and professional potential. As an International Coach Federation (ICF) credentialed coach, I coach and mentor business executives and professionals in leadership presence, management skills, work transition and career growth. I also have worked with students starting out in their careers and academics who want to advance in their chosen disciplines or leadership roles. Another area I specialize in is helping individuals who are considering retirement to transition into the next phase of their lives.
I offer over thirty years of experience as a higher education executive, academic leader, professor and scholar. Coaching and mentoring are ways for me to give back to others who aspire to advance their education and/or work in and even become leaders in information technology, education and creative professions. My background is visual design and communication and I pride myself in helping my clients use design thinking and other innovative methods to identify, meet and exceed their professional and personal goals. I am curious, patient and full of good humor!
Coaching method / approach
I follow the ICF protocol of beginning a session with mutual agreement on the topic to be discussed, exploring the topic through a combination of guided inquiry and design thinking methods and concluding with accountability- what are the takeaways and what am I and my client responsible for completing prior to the next session. Yes, there is often homework! I also provide mentoring services including review of career dossier materials, interview preparation and how to negotiate a job offer. I am available between sessions for email exchanges and I often will research topics and provide my clients with carefully curated and relevant resources.
Notes / Remarks
I hold a Master of Fine Arts degree. I have presented and published widely on leadership and mentoring, creativity and innovation, visual and multimedia literacy and information and educational technology.
