Iím passionate about leading and accompanying others on their path to personal and professional mastery, since at its core, that mastery is about being authentically ourselves. The journey of self-discovery has been my my own life-long quest and destination. It is my pleasure and honour to walk that path with others.
My clients know that I am fiercely committed to their discovery, expansion and achievement. They tell me they appreciate my directness, insight, wisdom, humour, and my understanding of the world in which they live and work.
Over the past ten years, I have coached executives and professionals in government, private sector organizations and non-profit agencies - and privately with lawyers, engineers, accountants, architects, entrepreneurs, men and women in transition, and coaches.
I bring them my authentic self, and more than 25 years of experience as a consultant in change management, facilitator in management development programs, part-time university instructor in organizational behaviour, senior public sector manager, and since 1999, executive and leadership coach.
With my colleague Kathleen Howard, I co-lead Courage to Act, an intensive, experiential womenís leadership program (www.couragetoact.com) from which the participants return to their careers and lives as leaders making a significant difference in their organizations, their teams, and communities.
Throughout my career, and in my life, my focus has been on facilitating the learning and growth of others. At the same time, I have been on a never-ending journey of personal growth which helps me bring more awareness, more skill, more knowledge, more tools, and more heart to my coaching clients.
I believe strongly that people who are motivated to grow and develop can create the conditions that will enable them to be in charge of their own destiny.
