Save Time and Money

In entrepreneurship, time is money.  It takes a long time to learn how to run an organization well.  I can help you learn faster than you can on your own by helping you reflect critically on your own experiences, and by introducing the right business and organizational knowledge at the right time.  


Overcome Persistent Challenges

Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”  In order to solve complex problems, you need to step back far enough to see the underlying assumptions and behaviors that perpetuate them.  This is where real change happens.  I’ll help you get there.    


Gain a Trusted Thought Partner

Despite being constantly surrounded by other people, 68% of small business owners report not having anyone to confide in about business problems or concerns.  You wear your game face everywhere else.  Coaching provides a safe and confidential learning environment, and a sounding board for your ideas.  


Bring out the Best in Others

Leadership is not about you.  It’s about the conversations and practices you create that enable people around you to thrive and produce results.  I’ll help you expand your leadership repertoire with new tools and perspectives backed by research and experience.  


Take Action to Achieve Your Goals

Nothing changes without action, but the day-to-day work of running a business often displaces the kinds of actions that line up most clearly with your short- and long-term goals.  I’ll help you focus on the highest-leverage actions you can take, while providing a structure of accountability to make sure you actually take them.  


 An Integrative Approach...  

Verve Coaching uses a rigorous, customized coaching methodology based on research and practical experience to help you achieve your goals and claim authorship of your leadership journey.  Unlike most leadership/management training and some types of coaching, my work with clients addresses their specific learning and performance goals as they evolve and change from moment to moment.  Rather than following a fixed or formulaic process, coach and client work together to tackle real, pressing business concerns, while developing the skills and practices necessary to help prevent common problems from reoccurring.  

Coaching works through a cyclical process of reflection, understanding, action, and evaluation that becomes more potent and valuable as time goes on.  The primary focus is on learning and achievement in the context of each client's specific goals and business objectives.


Meet the Coach

Having been in this field for 20 years, I can appreciate the unique set of circumstances and concerns that each client brings into a coaching engagement. I believe that you know your business better than anyone else can, and that given access to the right tools and resources, you are the only one capable of deciding what is right and what is best for your business.
