Executive Coaching to Life Coaching

Adding personal Life Coaching to my Executive Coaching and Leadership Development practice is happening gradually and very comfortably. I enjoy moving into the emotional and spiritual domains with clients. It seems quite natural and calls up my own spirit in a way that truly takes me outside of myself. I find that I don’t check myself for “appropriateness” with individual clients in the same way I do when I’m working within a business or nonprofit organization, and the coaching client and I enter a kind of dance that takes us wherever the client needs to go in that particular conversation. I use metaphors even more than before and call on archetypes. I ask about grandmothers as role models and spiritual guides without need of explanation. I can, in truth, be only witness if that’s what’s called for.

And I stand as witness to my own growing self.
