Professional Development Coaching: 

  • We focus on Human Awareness Coaching, building skills necessary for living in alignment with one's values - integrating mindfulness practice into the ways we communicate, think, and act. 

  • We believe that at the core of our potential and an organization's potential is relationship. The relationship we have with ourselves and others'. If our core relationships are not positive and healthy, we cannot expect to sustain positive outcomes. 

  • Relationship is foundational to the Learning Environments we establish for ourselves and others.
