There is a variety of ways to work with me individually on Strategic Planning or in a Coaching Relationship

Strategic Planning

In Every Organization Regardless of Size There Comes a Time That Change is Desired. Are you considering?

  • Closing or Expanding?- The HOW you do this is a critical component. I have a large network in the WNY and am often aware of these programs looking to close that might be just the perfect location for your expansion. If your planning to close, the timeline how you share this information with staff and families is important to respect everyone involved. I have assisted many programs transitioning.
  • Systems Analysis- You need someone to see YOUR BIG picture and assess what you need to move forward. I work with programs identifying where they can use support. Whether it is through training for their staff, setting up new internal systems or  addressing current communication breakdowns in their programs. I give you a plan to move forward whether it is working with me personally or other professionals in the field.

Individual Coaching

I focus on strength-based coaching and when we meet, we will be working on the areas that are the most important to you; I will be partnering with you.  I am genuinely interested in your success and helping you achieve it. I listen, reflect, ask questions, and give suggestions.

I help you set realistic goals. I believe that you know what is best for you. I know how to help you reach it. Pricing is dependent on the length and amount of coaching you desire. Email me for the multiple options you have and for a courtesy 30 min. courtesy conversation to identify if this is the right fit for you.
