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:
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.
First, we can do a zero-commitment call to see if we’re a good fit. We’ll discuss topics you’re hoping to cover, what coaching is and isn’t, and what to expect from structure and commitment.
Sessions are scheduled at 50 minutes. These can happen in person in Copenhagen, or online.
Each session will start with a discussion around topic, we’ll focus in on a goal and outcome for that particular session, and my responsibility as coach will be to maintain that focus and momentum.
After our introduction session, youll have the opportunity to choose from three options:
The yearly retainer is by far the most affordable, and is most appropriate for ongoing coaching clients/those seeking maintenance.
I suggest starting with three sessions, and using that as a mechanism to decide how you want to approach coaching.
I’ve completed the requirements for accreditation as a transformative coach with Animas; as well as additional training in design-based facilitation. I’ve recieved the Positive Intelligence 100x grant as well for coaching training.
I’m currently working towards working towards full accreditation with the International Coaching Federation, and you can expect me to follow the ICF core competencies in all of our sessions.
