Could I be the right coach for you?
I coach social sector CEOs and Executive Directors.
My coaching practice is focused on helping nonprofit and philanthropic CEOs and Executive Directors, though I'm open to working with any social sector leader who is:
I believe that we are all whole, wise, and highly knowledgeable about the nature of our own personal and professional development. As a coach, my primary role is to draw out the wisdom and insight within my clients through inquiry, curiosity, gentle provocations, and challenges that invite them to think deeply about the leader they are and seek to be.
I am a flexible resource - during and between coaching sessions.
Once I begin serving as a client's coach, I consider myself a partner to them in their leadership. I'm focused on helping nonprofit CEOs feel supported and better-resourced as they bring intentionality and focus to their practice of leadership. I employ a range of approaches and strategies in service of my clients' priorities and needs, and tend to avoid rigidly structured coaching plans or methodologies. Instead, I work with each client to understand their macro-level priorities for coaching and then am responsive to emerging needs, both within and outside of scheduled coaching sessions. This flexible approach generally means that I'm a good fit for those clients who are interested in working with a coach as an ongoing resource to their executive-level leadership, versus a structured skill-building engagement.
I support nonprofit leaders as whole people.
My coaching is centered on my clients' experiences of themselves as a leader, but this includes all of the ways that "life outside of work" is impacting - and is impacted by - their leadership role. My role as a coach is distinct, however, from that of therapist or psychologist, and I abide by the International Coaching Federation's Code of Ethics when considering the ethical boundaries of coaching.
