My Coaching Style

“Deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker.  When someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.” – Sue Patton Thoele

  • Honest and Direct – If I feel/think something, I will share it.  I will support you to the best of my ability, and will also challenge you, keeping in mind your ultimate goals as well as your personal preferences and style.
  • Professional – I believe strongly in professionalism – timeliness, follow-through, and respect.  My style emphasizes results and action, but also takes into account your unique needs.
  • Non-Judgmental – There is no “right” or “wrong” answers, ideas, or options.  I bring no judgment to the partnership.  I understand that trust takes time and will work to earn that and build that.
  • Results-Oriented – The goal is to achieve your goals in the most efficient and sustainable way possible.  I am comfortable addressing difficult topics and confronting challenges.  We will get to the point and get results.
In surveys by prior clients, they described me most often as: having high integrity, results-oriented, personable/easy-to-talk with, supportive, inspirational, non-judgmental, creative, and being an expert.
