Individual & Organizational Resilience Coaching

Building your life – Fueling your Career

Coaching is an investment you make to yourself about your life: it’s about making your life and career all you want it to be, starting now.  We work together to help you achieve your goals.  We focus on what you can control and change.  We examine what and how you can move forward with simple, realistic, actionable strategies that deliver results.

Coaching is about action that gets results: we build strategies, step by step, to create the life you want.  We explore practical, constructive solutions to face challenges.  We find simple, concrete, appealing solutions to improve your present and your future.

Coaching is an opportunity to prioritize, adjust and plan what you want your life and career to be, and what works for you – we plan our sessions for your needs and for what you want, building tools and strategies from the inside out, connecting your daily choices & decisions with your big picture, for the best results.

Coaching provides you the motivation, tools and strategies to improve your personal and work life, to fit your needs and your goals.

Coaching is about you now and in your future.  We reflect, plan, structure and create actions based on your needs and your reality.  We build a life that fits you, and that leads you where you want to be – making challenges, change and transitions easier.

Coaching delivers significant, long-lasting results: we focus on developing/applying strategies that work for you for the long term, for satisfying, significant results.

Coaching supports you, focusing on your priorities, your dreams, your needs and your goals. You create more time and more space for you, for a life fueled and inspired by you.

James, Executive Coaching Client
Catherine’s approach was instrumental in re-creating our organization for the future: it changed everything. The insights, tools and strategies Catherine provided us have helped create a better, stronger organizational culture.
Sean, CEO Retreat
What Catherine taught me was how to focus on core strengths. Sounds something somewhat trite but it has made a substantive difference in my overall performance and quality of life, to function more effectively as an executive.
Bill, Executive Coaching Client
Your coaching sessions have helped me tremendously. Whereas a few months ago, I felt close to burnout, I can see how my life has changed for the better. I have restored myself, and I can address clearly how I can build a better career and a better life for myself. Thanks for your support, for the strategies you shared, and for believing in me.
Susan, Resilience Coaching Client
Yesterday’s Resilience-Building session for our team was such an eye-opener, and we have had so many positive comments. We look forward to our next session with you.
Greg, Resilience Team Session
