Hiring a coach is a powerful move. Congrats on getting this far. I also know it’s important that you find the right person. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I identify as a Black man, as white, and as multi-racial. I’ve spent significant time in Boston, San Francisco, and Buffalo. I’ve had shorter stints in Dallas, Texas and Kingston, Jamaica. I was raised in a moderate, protestant New England church surrounded by a lot of love. That spiritual background is part of what set me on course for a life of service.
I’ve spent 15 years in the field of young adult and workforce development. In my most recent role I was Chief of Staff for a large nonprofit program. My time in this work has given me the opportunity to coach hundreds of people. Initially young adults preparing for their first roles and then early and mid-career professionals discovering and navigating their careers all the way to senior executives who are asked to make tough, nuanced decisions with limited information and set a compelling vision for our work together.
Coaching at all levels has taught me a foundational belief that runs through my practice: that each person has their own best answers. I work with competent, passionate, mission-driven people to help them become their most powerful selves. I believe that when good people are empowered to be who they are the whole world benefits.
If you are looking to tap more deeply into your unique contribution then book some time for us to talk and get to know each other better. I’m looking forward to it.
