When people ask me, “So, how does coaching work?” I tell them, “Well, I ask you questions until the answer is ‘I don’t know.’ That’s where the coaching begins.” I enjoy getting to the point where something new must be created. I love the unknown. One of my purposes in life is to be a catalyst. I feel called to get things done. My greatest joy is seeing people move from having a stalled life to a dynamic one.
I invest a lot of time into volunteer efforts. As the founder and former President of the Christian Coaches Network International, I feel that I am helping the coaching industry take shape and move forward – blazing new trails. I like to refer to myself as a mover and a shaker. I am a recognized expert in ethics and risk management. I have led the ICF Ethics Community of Practice. I am currently the leaders of the Ethics Interpretive Statements committee, the “Water Cooler” Discussion forum, and sit on ICF’s Independent Review Board.
My biggest passion is saving lives by training others how intervene in situations when someone is suicidal. My team and I have put together programs for awareness training at many different levels. Learn more about Coaching Suicide Awareness.
