1:1 Coaching 

If you're trying to get better something, a coach can help. 

I combine my years of experience as a campus executive with what one client calls my "ninja coaching skills" to help you navigate the turbulent waters of higher ed. I'll gently encourage you to think more deeply and perhaps differently about the challenges you face, and can offer advice, when you want it, based on my decades of experience.

Schedule a no-pressure, complimentary call
to see if this kind of coaching is right for you.
 Small-group coaching 
 (Coaching Circles) 
Get coached while learning to coach others.

You'll experience the power of being coached, as well as deepen your listening and question-asking skills. These fundamental coaching skills can improve all the relationships in your life, not just the professional ones. Ask me how I know.

 Being coached transformed me.  
Since hiring my first coach almost two decades ago I've turned to coaches many times. Skillful coaches have guided me through monumental transitions, helped me stay close to my values, and given me safe spaces for venting and solving sticky challenges.
Coaching has been so transformative for me that I began embedding coaching principles into my leadership practice. I've studied coaching and how to apply it as a supervisor, manager, and leader; mentored my teams to develop their listening and question-asking skills; and incorporated coaching practices into most of my teaching - in both workshops and the classroom.

I'm excited for you to have the same life-changing experience.
