“I need a Sabbatical.”
… you’ll be surprised where this will lead
“I wish I could combine software and …”
… perfect! let’s talk about that
“I hate Mondays. There must be something better.”
… yes! listen to your gut
“What if I could play all day?”
… wow, maybe you’ll invent the next “LEGO”!
“I want to be the boss!”
… go for it! I’ll help
I want to change the world...

Look Around

How are things in your world right now?

Are you satisfied & joyful? How exciting is the start of a work week? How relaxed are you about finances? How’s your health?

The Wheel of Life exercise helps you ‘look around’

Get (Back) in Touch

At the center of your being, you already know.

Get off the hamster wheel and rediscover ways of working that are effective and fun because they’re 100% suited to your values & strengths.

The self-coaching Journal helps focus your exploration.

Refresh your Vision

Think of it as time at the spa for your heart.

Make space in your calendar for a Vision Session, and come away refreshed.

It’s also our chance to get to know one another, so: no charge.

Grow your inner Coach

Walk the talk.

Observe your life in a new way. Make more satisfying choices. Your weekly “experiments” strengthen your own inner coach and soon you’ll be out practicing on your own.

The real work of coaching is always yours!

The first two steps can be done on your own, or in our initial coaching sessions.
