We get lost in our own heads, get distracted, or lose the plot. We unconsciously weigh down our passions with goals and the accomplishments of others, or we circle around a desire without taking a structured approach to reach it.
Coaching provides structured and potentially transformative approaches to getting to where we want to be — facilitated in a co-creative and accountability-focused way.
I'm primarily wok with makers, solo entrepreneurs, and hobbyists who are:
Looking to start
Looking to maintain
Looking to grow
Looking to shift
Looking to balance
I have designed training programs for a Danish and Japanese startup accelerators, the Code for Canada teams, IDEO clients, and the US Dept of Defense. In each of there cases, new and productive ways of supporting makers of all types emerged. Coaching one was of the most effective.
Years of team and leadership consulting has convinced me that individual "coaching" can be one of the most effective tools for folk to start towards ambitions, move past plateau, and recognize when this part of the journey is over.
Coaching provides a facilitated path for reflection and growth. It's not mentorship or advice, because you know your own mind and work. Rather, it presents a space to discuss with a focus and useful tools for guided introspection.
I'm also a maker and designer with experience getting my work out the door individually, as a contributor, and as a leader. While coaching is never about advice, having someone who speaks your language can make for more effective and open coaching sessions.
What to Expect
First, we can do a zero-commitment call to see if we're a good fit. I'm offering the first three sessions free while I complete my certification as they need to be recorded for transcription, and then after that will be paid at a reduced rate.
Sessions are scheduled at 50 minutes. These can happen in person in Copenhagen, or online.
Why Free Initially?
I'm currently working towards accreditation as a transformative coach with Animas. I'm focusing on working with engineers, makers, and technical hobbyists.
For certification, I need to accomplish 40 hours initially to certify with my course, then another 60 hours for full ICF accreditation.
