That Essential Spark is a partner for creating new and desired outcomes. We work with people who are ready to leverage their strengths to create the unique path to their goals and dreams, in and out of the workplace.
We specialize in incorporating the brain based sciences into work on individual performance and leadership development, emotional intelligence, operational design, team dynamics, navigating transitions, growing resilience and confidence, and defining and cultivating a happy and fulfilling life.
As President and Founder I bring over 20 years of experience with expertise in leadership, operations, developing teams, bottom line accountability, program creation, process development, public speaking and working with and through others to creatively find a path to the identified target. I have been Coaching for 12 years and across many industries and on diverse topics related to personal and professional change, getting unstuck, taking that next step, and gaining clarity around options and choice.
I am certified in the neuroscience of leadership and have personally experienced the transformative power of understanding of the brain and the role in plays in all that we wish to do and be. I am a walk beside partner for goals around self-actualization and bring evidence based strategies, content expertise, a strengths based approach, and real world application to each and every conversation and project.
Those I work with experience results because I quickly simplify complexities into key areas of focus, and create an active, honest relationship in which to explore strengths, gaps, obstacles, opportunities. Together we identify focused actions and surface new skills and insights that boost self-mastery, efficacy, performance outcomes, and overall wellbeing.
I partner with people on a 1:1 basis, in groups and with and within organizations in highly customized ways on topics related to personal and professional life. I collaborate with a small group of very skilled and like-minded coaches for projects that support a team of coaches.
I bring a comprehensive understanding of how the brain works, in depth training on people and change, and over 20+ years of leadership experience to your agenda.
I work in ways that leverage how the brain works, increase cognitive capacity, and shift the dynamics toward gathering what is needed to specify the exact and measurable goal, address the obstacles, evaluate the value, shift the mindset and takes steps toward the desired outcome.
