Certifications And Cultural Experiences

Experience coaching by working with a coaching industry professional who has a 15-year proven track record working with clients in corporate, small biz, main street, lifestyle business, and in the nonprofit sector as well. From solopreneurs to C-suite corporate leaders, we've come alongside people in many stages of their development as a leader to help them grow their companies; communicate with their employees, customers, and prospects; and improve time management and work/life balance. Most important, however, is the work our clients have done to build culture: in the workplace, in cross-cultural settings, and in their families. 

Why hire a certified coach?

If a coach invites you to be accountable, why wouldn't they also be accountable to a professional organization for practicing coaching ethically and according to professional standards of excellence?
