Coaching is about discovery, tapping into strengths, overcoming challenges, and problem-solving. My approach to coaching is shaped by the humility of having led others through change efforts. It begins with listening and asking impactful questions, the courage to help leaders see themselves accurately, and discovering how they may be getting in their own way.
Social change coaching is anchored in equity and deep self-awareness. When coaching occurs without judgment, empathy, and challenge – it creates space for deep thinking and personal growth.

From 2001 – 2004, I was a consultant on the largest community change initiative conducted in the United States, the Bridges to Our Future project, in Berrien County, Michigan. Since then, I have worked on numerous community, nonprofit, and corporate change initiatives. I understand the challenges of supporting, funding, designing, implementing, and leading equity-based change firsthand.

Creating a change road map involves developing a step-by-step process to guide change agents in designing strategies, prioritizing tasks, launching, and assessing a change program’s impact and results. The Social Change Road Map is an effective tool for maintaining focus and adjusting through an initiative’s implementation.
Workshops are designed to grow a change agent’s portfolio of methods, skills, and knowledge.
