My Approach to Coaching:
Grow with the Flow

My Grow with the Flow approach to coaching augments the Columbia Coaching Certification Program (3CP) coaching processs model with my unique model of the 'self as instrument' that is based on yoga philosophy. My coaching approach is based on a model of the client-environment interaction that combines elements of yoga and Taoist philosophy. This approach allows me to help the client rapidly zero in on the most optimal path to self-fulfillment and success in all the modalities that I coach in, be it individual work-life coaching, leadership development, or coaching for team success.
