So, why choose me to be your coach? It’s an absolutely fair and reasonable question to ask. If one or more of the following reasons works for you, give me a call or email me to set up a complimentary session to confirm whether we’re the right fit for each other. Most importantly, though, if it’s not me, don’t stop looking until you find that one special partner who can help you to achieve a more satisfying and fun-filled life. You deserve it, you’re worth it and, I believe, life was meant to be a joyful experience from beginning to end. Make it happen for yourself.

Some reasons to consider me:
I’ve probably either both faced and resolved the issue(s) that are keeping you from “living the life you’ve always wanted to live” or successfully worked with a client who has. In slogging through the down times in my life and exploring the wonder of the up times, I’ve developed a tremendous compassion for the human experience and a non-judgmental attitude that enable me to understand situations without getting caught up in them. Wouldn’t it be great to partner with someone who can ‘get into your space” to share what you’re feeling, but also who can detach from that space to offer you an “outside-of-the-box” perspective?

Because I never allowed myself to continue working in a job or field if being over-stressed or becoming cynical was in the offing, I have acquired the “real world” knowledge and wisdom of more than 25 years of working and yet am alive with the excitement and youthful exuberance of someone who’s just starting his first adult job. What would it be like to work with a coach who has a long-term, broad range of work experience to draw upon in partnering with you to resolve the current issue(s) limiting your life happiness and yet who also has an unbridled and tremendous optimism about your achieving the most out of your life?

I’ve made numerous, and successful, career transitions, and was a pioneer in what has now become the norm for employed adults—job changes every 1 to 3 years. Never satisfied with just having a job, and always looking to find work that I could be passionate about, I’ve matriculated through the maze of job search, interviews, being hired, and moving on, with all the attendant complexity of emotions, more times than I care to think about. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to work with a confidant who has felt the range of gut-churning, yet perhaps also exciting feelings you’re experiencing as you now look to make such a transition?
Beyond these reasons, in coaching my clients, I draw upon my experience as a licensed attorney, a certified mediator, a career counselor in the outplacement industry, a published author and public speaker, and as a University of California graduate with a BA Degree in History. I’ve worked with individuals ranging from senior executives to warehouse personnel and in organizational environments extending from start-ups to fully-mature global corporations. Currently, I am the sole proprietor of a coaching and organizational consulting business based in Northern California where I live with my wife of over thirty years, Beverley Ann, and my two cats, Molly and Cody.
