Coaching is defined as a helping profession and I fully endorse the approach of assisting my clients to discover their best self, both professionally and personally. My coaching philosophy is based on serving each client, within a holistic approach, to allow them to honor their values, reach their fulfillment and goals, manage their challenges, all through self-discovery. By combining coaching into leadership development, I assist clients to identify and sustain their core leadership skills; bolster confidence, and strengthen communication.  I help clients to build high performing and cohesive teams, since it is critical to leadership.
