Coaching is for those who want to make things better in some way. Perhaps they want to enhance their professional skills. Or they want to make their lives more satisfying. Or maybe both.

We believe that coaching relationships are relationships of trust. It is critical that participants feel respected while knowing that the relationship will be honest, constructive and direct. Deirdre has spent years coaching others, both virtually and in-person, in their paths to enhanced lives, skills and professional successes.

All coaching programs are short-term, with a maximum of six sessions. Some clients find that one session is enough to help them clarify and build a plan for their futures, while others prefer multiple sessions for deeper exploration and accountability. All sessions are currently being held virtually.

Deirdre offers two coaching focus areas, though many find their sessions comprise a combination of the two.

Professional Coaching

Our professional coaching helps those who want to enhance their skills, move up or in to a new field, or simply figure out what professional work is the best fit for them moving forward. When appropriate, it may expand to the non-professional components of a person’s life and/or include skills-building sessions (e.g. effective management, motivating leadership, holding others accountable and enhanced communication).

Life/Transition Coaching

Coaching can be extremely effective for those who find themselves dissatisfied with their lives and/or in a period of some kind of transition. Even when change is needed, the idea of uncertainty and the sheer number of potential paths can be an overwhelming barrier. Our life/transition coaching helps individuals assess their lives, identify their greatest values/opportunities/strengths, and create a concrete path for meaningful change moving forward.

*Please note that all coaching requires an initial, brief phone call with Deirdre to discuss objectives and assess alignment with the program .
