Our greatest challenges and opportunities reside in the deep. I can help you explore that unknown space.
As your personal advisor I will guide you through a process with specific goals over a time frame that you and I agree to. Our objectives will be different thus our journey will be unlike other methods of self-discovery, like coaching or counseling, which tend to be episodic, tepid and without resolution.
MY PRACTICE is to help you attain self-awareness through completeness in all aspects of life. MY GOAL is to create a profound shift in how you perceive, live and affect those closest to you – in love, family and work. TOGETHER we will co-create pathways to new meaning, new language, and new conversations toward understanding in and of your life.
I will take you beyond your comfort zone to realize a life bigger than where you have been. Like birth, this process will often be rigorous and uncomfortable. The alternative is to remain as it has always been…
One day all of this will be better, … get fixed, I will have arrived at…, my spouse will …, my work will …, my children will …, others will … Is this life? What makes it so?
OUR SUCCESS depends upon your commitment to be open, honest and willing. Though what we do is confidential and I am trained as a coach, I do not necessarily act as a coach or abide by coaching standards designed to protect your comfort zone. I am here to bring resolution in your attachments and scrape the muck out of your life.
CAVEAT: I am often asked to address (‘fix’) the ability of an entity (employees, partners, customers, donors, friends, family) to create deeper relationships in an effort to augment capacity so others see things ‘your’ way (depth, connectivity). Bridging this gap requires moving from that safe/comfortable intellectual zone where you and most everybody else compete/reside (live, exist) to the scary spiritual place as our ‘whole’ selves as others see us. Logic compels that such a shift will be rigorous, painful, even bewildering. Salient change begins at the top. YET, almost all leaders lack the courage required. I see this constantly. And it’s too bad because this space is where leadership at all levels takes hold, life changes and new beginnings are discovered. WHERE ARE YOU?
MY PURPOSE is helping others to live consciously in order to find the new beginnings.
MY METHODOLOGY combines emotional and conversational intelligence, rigorous dialogue, character-alignment and peer-exchange (when possible) to reveal gaps and provide feedback toward creating breakthroughs to attain a profound shift.
NOTE: I act in an advisory role and not within the episodic or tepid constraints of a coach or ‘life-coach’.
MY INSPIRATION is our second oldest daughter Martha who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in her sleep from natural causes. She was 23. Though quiet and shy she brought profound spiritual and emotional impact into the lives of hundreds. Despite her inherent shyness she was courageous, though I don’t think she knew that. As for me, I was too busy ‘being’ a parent. Lost in illusion of what I thought was supposed to be, I failed to exist beyond my own assumptions of myself in Martha’s life in order to embrace the wholeness that Martha had achieved. It was only in the aftermath that I realized Martha had become the most successful person I have ever known. And thus began my journey.
