How I Work

I’m frequently asked if I’m a coach or a consultant.

The answer is, both, depending upon the client, and sometimes depending upon the session! Sometimes the client’s needs will change really quickly, and require an equipment change, like cross country vs. downhill skis. A good coach/consultant must be ready for whatever terrain the client happens to encounter…. Sometimes on very short notice.

Simply put, the consultant’s tool kit tends to contain more answers than questions. Consultants are frequently hired for their expertise at solving specific problems, while providing ideas and processes that are both monitorable and quantifiable. Consulting is a methodology based upon providing solutions.

Coaching, on the other hand, tends to be more of an inquisitive process. A coach inspires his or her client to higher achievement by listening, and guiding the client to find answers in a safe, supportive environment.

With me, you can expect a blend of these two approaches. The coaching/consulting percentage of that blend will vary based upon your needs.

If you’d like to know more about how this works, drop me a line or give me a call. I look forward to hearing from you.
