Who am I as a facilitator/trainer?
You know the saying, to become a master at something, teach it! Over the years, I’ve taught/facilitated conflict resolution, communication and career transition skills, managing change, even vegetarian cooking. And now, coaching! As a facilitator, I bring focus, respect, playfulness, encouragement and a solid expertise in coaching and adult learning principles. I completed Coaching Out of the Box training in June, 2012.
Who are you?
I am guessing you are on this website because you have experienced the power of coaching conversations. You know a coaching approach builds engagement, action and accountability. You’d like the people you work with to experience this on a daily basis. You hope to create a coaching culture within your organization and are looking for someone to deliver coaching training!
