Coaching Programs and Philosophy

As a Certified Professional Coach, I help bring the feeling of small town to those who are struggling to make meaningful connections. I work with my clients to understand their network, figure out what’s going on internally that’s holding them back from cultivating and engaging the network, and finally, putting a networking plan into action. 

One of the powerful tools I use in my coaching practice is the Energy Leadership Index assessment. If you are curious how you show up in various aspects of your life and your ability to lead people, including yourself, to take positive, productive, and sustainable action, this is place to start. The assessment measures how involved or engaged you are in your roles and tasks on the job and at home. Finally, it measures your potential leadership ability by your level of consciousness – your awareness about who you are and what life is about. Studies prove that higher levels of consciousness are associated with higher levels of success in life, including success in finances, relationships, personal development, achievement, and more.

Why did I become a coach?

Nearly ten years ago, I graduated at the top of my MBA class. I got a job at a Fortune 100 company. I had two beautiful babies. My husband was on the tenure-track at his university job. And five years went by in a blink. When I went to bed at night, I wasn’t sure if I had accomplished anything meaningful that day. Life was a blur of midnight feedings, all-day meetings, and scrambling to put food on the table at night. Somewhere along the path, I lost who I was in the process.

That’s when I met a coach. I gave her the elevator pitch of my life and she sensed that I needed an objective person to help me in my situation. I hired her for six months. She had me do homework and reflection and visioning. Through that process, I realized that two things that I enjoyed when I was younger were missing in my life – speaking and writing. She challenged me to find ways to bring them back into my life. 

That is how Small Town Leadership was born. It provides me a platform to tell stories and offer my speaking services. Now, it provides an option to offer coaching services to help clients deepen their connections and find greater meaning in their personal and professional life.
