Using structured Co-Active Training coaching tools and Gallup CliftonStrengths as a platform, I help clients know what they value, use their talents to thrive in areas important to them, and feel prepared to lead in making decisions amidst uncertainty and the inevitable changes they will face. I work with clients individually or through their companies achieve their professional goals…and live a fulfilled life.
Through focused, compassionate, and challenging dialogue, I help clients to answer questions most important to them.
Several years ago, I learned about the power of strengths-based thinking. And, playing to my strengths led me to coaching.
I loved the idea that focusing on what I enjoy and am naturally at is good for my career as much as my wellbeing. It's so simple yet not always easy. Taught to address my weaknesses, I ignored - then forgot - my strengths. I have come to realize I'm not the only one.
My Kellogg MBA education and variety of work experiences provided me substantive industry and workplace knowledge as well as wisdom that makes me a better coach to others. I worked with smart, talented, and kind people throughout my decades-long journey from Accounting through Marketing. These relationships enabled my professional successes, energized me to do my best, and now inspire me to focus my knowledge, skills and capabilities on formalizing what I have always done -- focus on the people.
My appreciation of the importance of giving back to my communities and the world around me continues to grow. My philanthropic interests center around providing and improving education and helping those less fortunate than I am. My husband Charles and I live in the Boston suburb of Needham with our two kids and dog Fletch.
