Finding the Rembrandt!

Welcome to the quickly approaching holiday season and to the end of what, for me, has been a year of transitions. My coaching business took a significant turn this year when I decided to expand my practice to include corporate clients.  In addition to my private coaching clients, I'm now engaged as a contract coach for LIFE MEETS WORK INC,
providing New Parent Career Coaching to companies throughout the United States.

Whether I'm in my first coaching session with an attorney, a CPA, a corporate executive or a small business owner, there is always some confusion as to exactly what coaching is, and what results might be expected as a result of coaching.  While watching former President George W. Bush in his recent appearance on the Tonight Show, I was struck by the way he relayed his story about his interest in becoming a painter. He stated that he had a desire to paint and that his instructions to his art teacher were, "There's a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find him".  That was it!  The former President articulated the role, goal and mission of coaching in that brilliant and elegantly simple phrase. "There is a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find him".
Helping my clients discover their purpose and passion, reunite them with their confidence, and expand their skills in order to "Find the Rembrandt" is a cherished privilege.  As my year of tremendous growth and discovery comes to a wrap, I look forward to the challenges ahead. You have a Rembrandt trapped in your body. We all do. I can help you find him!
Wishing you the joy of a discovered Rembrandt,
