Join me for an Authentic Engagement clinic on “Creating More of Your Favorite Clients”
Whatever business we’re in, we all have some favorite customers. Most of us wish we had more, or that more of our other clients were more like our favorite clients. In this program, you’ll learn to leverage your current relationship skills, expanding and deepening your relationship with existing clients.
Why work with me?
I bring an extraordinary mix of skills, education, and life experience to my coaching, and I’ve successfully coached over a hundred men and women since starting my practice in 2013. My clients can tell you about their greater impact in the work productivity, leadership skills, and personal lives.
Why work with me? When I asked my former clients that question, they give one or more of these reasons – I make them feel comfortable and safe in our conversations, no matter what we discuss, second, that they experience feeling heard and that I’m a really good listener. That they experience my belief and faith in their well-being and wisdom makes it easier for them to find it in themselves.
In addition to realizing their individual goals, all of my clients learn how to navigate and manifest change with ease and grace, and that wisdom, clarity, and well-being can be experienced in any situation or circumstance that life throws at them.
When I left the world of business and finance, I knew that helping people had to be the focus of my next career. In the year following my departure from my business partners and Wall Street, I suffered a series of health crises that serendipitously steered me towards the field of coaching. It took some time, but I recovered my health, and found my passion and calling, and committed myself to mastering change, both for my clients’ and my own growth and transformation.
I have two coaching credentials (Clarity Coach & Strozzi Coach), two masters degrees (MBA from ASU Thunderbird School of Management and an MFA Writing from Bennington College, and over 30 years’ experience in the business and non-profit world. My transformational approach to coaching requires no tools or techniques, and is entirely improvisational, which is where my 17 years performing improv comes in handy! Improv is all about responding authentically and skillfully to whatever is present in the moment. That’s coaching in a nutshell!
I love my work, my clients, my family and my life. I like to sum it up this way: we are all born with everything we need to realize our dreams and to live a fulfilling life of happiness and well-being.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with Kathy, my wife of 26 years. We have two grown children who share our love of the outdoors.
