Test-drive the car before you take it off the lot!
I will send you an intake form so I can better understand what you are working on, then we will spend 45 minutes in a live session discussing a topic you'd like to be coached on. This session also gives you a chance to decide for yourself if there’s a fit (style, questions, interactions, subject matter expertise, etc.)
The cost for an introductory session is $175, of which I will donate $50 to the charity of your choice upon session completion.
You're ready for this? Fantastic!
My typical coaching process involves 60-minute coaching sessions spaced out every two weeks. Gaps of more than two weeks between sessions usually diminish the accountability of the coachee and effectiveness of our check-in's.
My minimum required commitment is twelve sessions (approximately six months). We also can do sessions more frequently, depending on what you need.
The cost of ongoing sessions is $3000 for twelve sessions, of which I ask for $1500 to be paid in advance of the first five sessions, with the remaining $1500 to be paid in advance of the final five sessions. Ongoing sessions beyond the initial ten sessions can be secured at the same rate.
Please note that I offer a 20% discount for full-time students (both undergraduate and graduate), non-profit professionals, and transitioning military individuals and milspouses. Please mention this during your initial outreach and send proof to be eligible!
For these groups, the trial session is $140, and the ongoing coaching relationship is $400 per month (for two one-hour long sessions).

The answer depends on where you are in your career and what unresolved questions you have. If you can't answer some of these questions below, then coaching might be for you.
Early Career Professionals
-How do I take my knowledge and ambition and apply it to all of the options I'm considering?

Senior Executives, Business Leaders, and Entrepreneurs
-How do I lead teams in complex organizations or my own business?
-Am I genuinely self-aware of how people perceive me?
-What drives me on a daily basis?
-What will this awareness help me do with teams, customers, or others?
Everyone's journey is going to be different. Some coachees arrive with a clear idea of what they want and simply lack the how to get there. Others don't know why they should pursue something or have not found the end destination. My coachees gain clarity on what's important to them or new ways of looking at information, which I call "wrinkles in the brain."
There are also tangible things you'll take away, including a wide variety of tools that are designed to identify different ideas, including but not limited to:
This is a fantastic question. I've been the beneficiary of three amazing executive coaches in my professional life.
And through all of those hard conversations and tough questions, they never told me what to do. They helped me discover what was locked away inside my head and heart all along. Coaching is not about someone else telling you what to do - it's all about you pushing all the self-imposed obstacles and barriers aside to find clarity.
I've interviewed for and accepted job offers at LinkedIn, Deloitte Consulting, Slalom Consulting, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, and SAP SuccessFactors, with offers from other companies as well. I understand the power of networks and how to distinguish oneself in making your candidacy known to employers.
For a story on how career clarity helped me find my then-dream job at LinkedIn, see my post on LinkedIn from 2017.
Well obviously that's up to you. A trial session lets coachees understand how coaching with me works. If you decide you want to proceed, I ask for a minimum commitment of 12 sessions (six months at two sessions per month). This is because lasting change is hard and requires a combination of time and effort. We will work to build up your awareness, competencies to make change, and knowledge - and this process is best served with a program of thoughtful sessions.
