What kind of coaching do you do?

Ideal client & kinds of help/problems you like to solve
I specialize in working with high and overachievers who are looking to get more out of their performance, impact and lives but feel lost and/or stuck. I focus on adaptive behavioral changes and mindset shifts which enable them to reach the next level across all facets of life. I tend to work most often within the tech industry, but have no industry preference. My ideal client must be interested in making changes and willing to do the work.
Preferred coaching structure
1:1: I meet bi-weekly for 1 hour 15 minutes via VC (or phone if preferred) using a tailored approach based on their goals and challenges (rather than a using a cookie-cutter process). I offer 3-month and 6-month packages. When I engage with teams/orgs, I work with the stakeholders to design a program that makes sense based on goals, often a series of workshops.
Who can't you help?
I don't work well with people who are exclusively looking to be told what to do with a quick fix and/or tips and tricks because I don't believe they serve and end up making people feel worse about themselves.
