When I started down the road of becoming an executive coach, I didn’t do it to get an additional degree or to build my resume. I did it because I’m passionate about it.
But I didn’t arrive at this point by simply making a decision and charging ahead. I started a journey several years ago to do the work of figuring out what I wanted to do with this next chapter in my career, and more importantly, in life.
“Coach thyself” was my mission with a commitment to follow whatever road presented itself. It was a little scary and it required that I let go and have an open mind, and it brought me and our firm to this moment.
For me, the journey of becoming more self-aware confirmed that I love what I do. I’ve been blessed to have a very successful career as an executive recruiter, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with hundreds of wonderful and talented people.
So, I’ve recommitted to being the best recruiter I can be, and I’ve also embraced the opportunity to work with leaders as their executive coach. I retained two coaches to learn and work on the changes I need to make, and I became a certified executive coach through The Hudson Institute.
It has been a life changing experience for me and I’ve enjoyed working with leaders at critical moments in their careers as their coach. We are complicated people and making meaningful change in our lives can be hard, but one thing became crystal clear to me.
All of us are different but there are a few simple truths at the heart of coaching. As you engage with us, I hope you’ll enjoy reading some of these truths and take away something that helps you in making the meaningful changes you want to make.
