Personal Discovery Coaching is an opportunity to check in with yourself and assess where you are in your journey. We start with identifying your core values and strengths, then look more closely at each area of your life. You’ll decide where you want to focus, evolve, release. You’ll decide how far, how fast and how much fun you will have. In the end, you’ll be more empowered, centered and at choice.
Growing up, I thought I was socially inept and shy, alternately energized by people and exhausted by them. By most outward appearances, I was outgoing and friendly; inside, I was tired and more than a little stressed! I could be out with friends and have fun, and then I needed to recharge by crawling under the blankets for a while. I thought I was just low energy and perhaps not a “people person.”
What I didn’t know back then that I know now is that I am an introvert, and that is a strength! It’s a fabulous personality trait that is meant to be understood, owned and leveraged.
What I know that I want you to know is that you do not need to be “fixed.” You are not weak, flawed, weird, strange, unsocial, fearful or shy. You may act and feel those things sometimes; so can extroverts! As an introvert, you are fueled by solitude. You tend towards introspection, listening carefully before speaking. In short, you look before you leap.
These tendencies can cause misunderstandings about who you are, your communication and leadership style, and your needs in a relationship.
The key is to become aware of and understand how your introversion expresses itself; fully own your preferences and tendencies; and feel empowered to leverage your strengths at work, home and play!
Throughout the coaching relationship, you – the client – are in the driver’s seat. You determine the agenda, the focus, the speed at which we progress and actions for which you want to be accountable to yourself. You are whole, capable, resourceful and creative, and I will hold you as big as you want to be!
Together, we find ways to develop your natural strengths, uncover fears and limiting beliefs, and move you forward into the future with confidence.

Curious? More details can be found in the Coaching FAQ. If you are sincerely interested in the possibility of adding a coaching relationship to your support network, I offer a complimentary 30-minute informational session. A limited number of time slots are available most weeks (I update the calendar every month). Click here to schedule (link opens my TimeDriver scheduling page in new window).
The Information Session will acquaint you with the process and benefits of coaching, plus give you an opportunity to ask questions. Once you’ve made your appointment, I’ll send you a few guiding questions that will allow me to get to know you, and allow you to get a feel for what a coaching conversation is like. It’s not a 30-minute sales pitch; it’s about trying coaching on for size and each of us deciding if there’s a good fit between us.
