When I dare to be powerful –
to use my strength in the service of my vision,
then it becomes less and less important
whether I am afraid.
– Audre Lorde
We hold an emphatic and foundational belief in our organization: people – with necessary and appropriate support – have the capacity to solve their own problems.
Our coaching service is a one-to-one relationship designed to facilitate a leader’s professional and personal growth resulting in expanded ways to utilize existing skills and talents. Our practice is centered on Coaching for Equity which we define as the practice of listening, teaching, provoking, guiding, and supporting people to achieve mutually agreed upon objectives that interrupt historical patterns of inequity.
In an executive coaching engagement our experienced coaches act as mirrors for leaders, often reflecting the gaps between a leader’s intentions and their actions. Our approach draws on extensive experience combined with the methodologies of cognitive coaching, developmental psychology, systems thinking, organizational development, critical race theory and neuroscience.
