EQ & Leadership Coaching

Crisis Coaching

Every individual, every team, and every organization go through times of crisis and extreme stress. In these moments, we find ourselves more open to accepting the compassion, support, and expertise of others interested in our success. I welcome you to reach out to me.

I work with school administrators, non-profit executives, teacher teams, families, and parents to support in-the-moment crisis coaching:

  • Clarity and focus exercises
  • Connecting with emotions for insight in crisis management
  • Trust-enhancing team and family practices
  • Tension and stress release (letting the air out of the stress balloon)
  • Tuning into a sense of purpose and mission for decision-making

Capacity Coaching

Interested in growing your emotional intelligence while expanding your leadership capacities? Are you looking to reduce stress, grow your work-life balance skills, and bring more joy to your life? If you are looking for a one-on-one coaching relationship to help you increase your capacities in these areas, consider engaging with me as a coach. Typically I work with school administrators, non-profit leaders, educators, and/or parents on a timeline and schedule that aligns to their individual goals and schedules.

  • Stress management and mindfulness practices
  • Work-life balance through assessing energy levels and time management tools
  • Infusing EQ into your organizational, team, and home cultures
  • Reducing team conflict through centering and appreciation practices
  • Baseline data for leaders, teams, and organizations to increase capacities for change management
  • Developing a personal, team, and organizational sense of purpose
  • Setting and meeting exciting goals to drive successful outcomes 

frequently asked questions

What is EQ and why do you focus on it?
Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, simply means being smarter with feelings. Feelings drive people, and people drive the performance of organizations and teams. What we know from research and practice is that EQ is a learnable set of skills and capacities. By focusing on growing emotional intelligence, we leverage a powerful driver of change to reach our personal and professional goals. EQ is an essential skill set for youth and adult learners alike. When we focus on social and emotional learning (SEL), we build EQ skills like self-awareness, empathy, and intrinsic motivation which have enormous positive impact on academic and life outcomes for students.
Do you work with individual schools or school districts?
Yes! I have worked with hundreds of individual schools and major school districts in New York, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Louisiana, and California. I am able to support EQ work in schools and districts.
How do you work with clients? Do you have a set program or package? Or do you customize for the client’s needs?
Great question! I offer several stand-alone workshops in EQ, SEL, and Leadership appropriate for schools, parent organizations, school districts, and individuals. You can check out my Book Page to see the details and schedule of upcoming workshops. Most of my clients, however, engage me with customized services depending on their budgets and needs. I have a wide array of tools and coaching methods that I use to engage with clients.
Do you work with parents?
Yes! I am a parent, and I love supporting parents and families to reduce stress and conflict and generate new solutions to chronic problems at home and school through parent and/or child coaching and SEL or EQ workshops.
Do you accept POs for payment? Do you accept online payments?
When working with schools or school districts, I can accept payment as a vendor and through purchase orders (PO). I also accept online payments.
