Coaching & Leadership Development

There is a relationship between who we are as individuals and what we choose to do with our lives. Through our work, we seek to realize values and find personal meaning for what we do.  Questions arise from both within us and outside of us. These questions form an intimate and continuous dialogue between ourselves and the world in which we live and work inviting us to discover the highest or deepest possible value available in our particular situation. Thus, seen from an existential viewpoint coaching involves helping the person to find possibilities, values, authenticity, and meaning for what they do. Even as leadership coaching is understood to meet organizational needs first, what is good for the organization must also be good for the individual.

 

Leadership Coaching is a shared, personalized relationship between you as a leader and me as coach. The purpose of the partnership is to help find the most appropriate avenues to transcend the quality of the leader’s working and personal life.

Organizational Support, Planning & Facilitation

How effective an organization will be at its mission work, and how it will develop into the future rests on well-considered planning that takes into account finances, human resources, governance, and fundraising that supports the entire organization accomplish programs and deliver services. Aimed at small to medium size community and not-for-profit organizations, I help new, non-profit start-ups as well as existing organizations re-establishing, renewing or reviewing their mission work.  I tailor services to meet different organizational needs and budgets. For example, a strategic planning event at a minimum I offer preparatory consultations with the sponsor/s, facilitate the event and provide a written summary report to the sponsor/s.

 

If extended services are required, e.g., in setting out and operationalizing the strategic plan, then that can also be encompassed.  Organizational supports can blend well with any of the other services appearing on this page.

Personal & Professional Development Workshops

Authentic Living Existential Workshops

These workshops teach a way of being in the world and promote an authentic interaction with life's questions and encourage a "yes" to life. They are created from the framework of Existential Analysis (EA), which is an approach to psychotherapy that is based on the works of Viktor Frankl (man's search for meaning) and then expanded into a complete model by Dr. Alfried Langle.

 

The workshops are suitable for professional development for anyone training or working in the helping/healing/ health fields. Participants can also take the workshops solely for personal development too. The experiential format will be a combination of theory, discussion, and interactive activities. To learn more about yourself through an existential lens and how to apply an existential conceptulization to your work and life, take one or more of the upcoming workshops.
