What do you love about coaching?


I love the opportunity to enable dialogue that leads to opening up new perspectives for a client.  When a client is able to expand the range of possible views of a challenge, opportunity or goal, the options for pursuing growth and possible futures broaden significantly.  And when this happens, I find the client experiences a new energy in exploring different paths, risk-taking, and learning.   I love listening and reflecting back what I observe as the impact of the client’s broadened mindset and how it invigorates their (or should it be his/her) commitment to action.   And I especially love seeing the client’s gratification when successfully implementing desired change.

How do you unwind?

I enjoy the outdoors, especially walking, hiking, and biking.  I find the natural beauty of the mountains or coast helps me unwind and reenergise.  Some of my most creative thinking comes from these moments.  I also read to relax, especially non-fiction and some mysteries. 

What inspired you to work with CTG?


A coach colleague of mine recommended me to Brad and I welcomed the opportunity for a call to get acquainted.  In our initial conversation, I loved hearing Brad’s passion for developing leaders and his impressive programming.  His openness and candor about his business and partner relationships especially appealed to me.  I found his transparency refreshing and his enthusiasm catching.  I believe his coaching principles and practices align with mine and am excited to partner with him and his team to make a difference for his valued clients.
