Coaching

Hiring a coach is a commitment to growth and transformation. I partner with my clients knowing they are already the experts, no matter how small or grandiose the challenge may be. I am the cheerleader, the under-cover agent, the bullshit detector and the guide. I will hold you accountable with tenderness or a firm reminder of your values. We design that part together.

It’s easy to fall prey to the cultural messages of perfectionism, but when we stop basing our worthiness on other peoples’ opinions, we begin living and leading with courage and certainty: We practice vulnerability, self-compassion and make bold choices, regardless of the feedback from others.

Our collaborative partnership begins with the premise that right now as your perfectly imperfect self, YOU ARE ENOUGH.
I hear a variety of reactions to that statement, such as:

“I really want to believe that.”                                                                                                                  “Yes! I believe it’s true!”
“I think it’s a bunch of bull crap.”
“My version of enough just isn’t enough.”

Let me explain… When I say “enough” I am not suggesting mediocre or status quo. I am saying that right now, your voice is worth hearing. Your values are worth honoring. Your ideas are worth sharing, regardless of how unprofessional or polished they may sound.

What does believing you’re enough look like?
  • It looks like taking a stand for something you believe-in, even at the risk of unpopularity.
  • It looks like knowing steadfast what your values and boundaries are, and making choices that are directly in alignment with them.
  • It looks like knowing deep inside of yourself that you’re worthy of a life rich with connection and deep fulfillment.

This is my wish for you.

The first step is to schedule a COACHING INQUIRY call. We’ll have a conversation (at no cost) where you will gain an understanding of the coaching process, and I will gain a better sense of your needs. Together we’ll determine the best way for me to support you in reaching your goals.

 
 
What I most appreciated about Joan was how she walked the talk and demonstrated the art of building and deepening connection through vulnerability. Thank you, Joan!”
