Focusing on what's Right About People
In the summer of 2003 I volunteered for this new program that would be introduced to the fall's freshmen class, it was CliftonStrengths. As part of the training I took the CliftonStrengths assessment to learn my top 5 Strengths. I can honestly say learning my "Top 5" was a significant turning point in my adult life.
Now over 15 years later I'm still learning more about myself and my Strengths. I've coached and taught hundreds of undergraduate and adults on their Strengths. It is a tremendous blessings when I hear a student's story of using their Strengths to impact their world.
The Collaborative Relationship - Coaching
Fall 2018 I attended an "Introduction to Coaching" training session and immediately recognize a new avenue of personal growth and an opportunity to help others in a deeper more meaningful way.
In Spring 2019 I participated in 60 hours of training to become an International Coaching Federation Coach. The training was challenging and energizing as I began to see the impact coaching can have on an individual. I've been blessed to work with some amazing people and watch "the light bulb come on" as we have worked through the coaching process.
An Exciting Future
My goal is to become an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation by the end of 2020. This is a rigorous process, but I believe it will make me the best coach possible for my clients. I look forward to working with those who desire to grow, whether it's in understanding their Strengths, becoming a better leader, setting goals, or becoming more productive. I'm here to encourage and challenge you to be better tomorrow than you are today.
