“Executive coaching acknowledges that each person is different & requires their own space to flourish. Coaching allows the client to hold a space for them while they explore ideas/issues - pushing them to go deeper when they need it, yet anchoring them to help them feel safe and achieve their goals. In addition, coaching explores the intrinsic opportunities and rewards in becoming more authentic and inspiring in a leadership position, developing an awareness that creates greater presence, drives results and creates impact..”
