I help leaders get focus and move people towards what matters.

She also works with clients who are interested in creating an inclusive work environment for their LGBT employees and with LGBT people who want to be more "out" at work.
Rita graduated from the NVW PCC program in 2011 and holds an Associate Certified Coach designation from the International Coach Federation. She is Senior Facilitator with Personal Leadership Seminars (www.plseminars.com), a Qualified Administrator for the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), and a certified administrator of the DISC Profile.

After having spent 17 years in corporate life and experienced the power of effective coaching, I have decided to focus on helping people navigate in their corporate environments, in order to unleash their potential while fulfilling deeper aspirations.
More specifically, I help clients through one-to-one coaching during crucial moments in their career/life. I also work with students (from the Management Development Institute of Singapore) and young professionals (through the French Chamber of Commerce) to plan their careers in line with their skills and who they are.
I develop personalized programs alongside my clients and we agree on an overall purpose and a set of observable outcomes. My role is to support my clients in order for them to reach Long-term Excellence, which means that they become both self-correcting and self-generating in a way that brings fulfillment. This can only happen when people are truly seen and start to make choices according to who they deeply are. It also implies accepting that there are certain drivers in our lives that are beyond our control. As stated by Epictetus: “We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them”.
I am also the mother of four amazing boys who have somehow become my personal teachers on human development throughout the years… And as the second half of my surname suggests ("Liesse" means "Joy" in ancient French), a sense of happiness is somehow what I would like to bring to my clients in both their workplace and in their lives too.

I believe that we all can feel less suffering and more contentment. Most of the time, when we feel stuck or lost or frustrated or just "not quite right," there's a blind spot we're not seeing, or an opportunity to develop some skills that would help us thrive more in our own lives.
That's where coaching can be an extremely powerful resource.
I'm deeply committed to coaching because working with a coach changed my life for the better. Sure, we can "push through" or figure out many things on our own, but it is much easier with help.
I’m deeply committed to helping others navigate their lives with more ease, comfort, authenticity, and confidence. More about my approach is at katieseaver.com
Seeking to improve your team productivity and collaboration? Reduce high staff-turnover or burn-out? Are you a leader looking to strengthen your leadership presence and effectiveness? Clarify your vision? I serve people like you - leaders and their organizations in the SF Bay Area and beyond that value the central role leadership and culture play in sustaining their integrity and intention as they grow.
I am on a mission to cultivate high functioning leaders teams by reconnecting us to our own bodies and hearts. A near-fatal bicycle accident and holding space for a friend as she passed from cancer taught me that to have lived a rich life one should share all our gifts with the world fully and with our whole being. As a coach I want to help my clients uncover their gifts and bring them more fully to the world - at the individual, team, or organizational level. By reconnecting to ourselves we can reconnect to others and co-create a just, inclusive and equitable future where all beings thrive.
Intrigued? Let's chat
I currently head the Organisational Development and Coaching practice in EMEA for one of the world's leading Financial Services firms, and have been with them for 15 years. I occasionally work with private coaching clients.
I'm an an organisation consultant, facilitator and accredited Integral Development oach, passionate about using conversation as the basis for both individual and organisational change.
I love helping individuals, teams and organisations, build meaningful relationships, have better conversations, create trust, unlock potential, and create value.
I enjoy helping people notice the stories theyÍre living in and how by seeing, and perhaps rewriting those stories, they can create and sustain meaningful change.
I am an experienced coach who wants to help you effect personal transformation and move forward to building a more fulfilling life. I would enjoy supporting you as I have supported many through difficult personal and significant professional transitions. No matter what brings you to seek a coach, my goal is to help bring growth and satisfaction to your experience. Each life path holds many transitions and I have deep experience to share on what it takes to create, reinvent, persevere, and find personal leadership that serves your vision and heart.
I hold a BA in Physics, Maters in Business, and MA in Psychology. I am a trained grief counselor and Certified Senior Advisor, as well as a Certified Integral Coach.
Currently, I focus on two distinct practices: High-tech Professional Development Coaching and Parent Care Coaching.
High-tech Professional Development Coaching
With over 25 years working with technology businesses and over 10 years as a therapist, counselor, and coach, I bring a deep understanding of personal an professional development. I understand much of the challenges, dynamics, and environments in which today's technology professionals must work and I can offer the steps to find clarity and move forward. Each client has unique needs and we will develop a personal coaching program for you.
I am particularly interested in the development of leadership in one's personal life to bring capacity to discern and act with confidence in one's own agency and power. This may involve a number of different explorations, including:
- Personal mindfulness, integration, and wholeness
- Stress reduction and focus
- Enhancing coherence of values in each arena of participation
- Improving collaboration, effectiveness, and orchestration of efforts
- Creative process and vision development
- Entrepreneurship and managing start-up relationships
- Tending to career path and response to disruptions to it
- Mentoring the refinement of thought process, decision making, and communications
- Finding heart, spirit, and energy in all the above
Parent Care Coaching
Supporting my own parents through their aging and end-of life brought significant challenges and growth for me. I have found that the adult children and families facing this part of the arc of life have little support and little time for the profound transition taking place. I coach clients to help find the path, orientation, and positioning that serves their best intention for their parents while enabling greater personal awareness and integration. This usually includes four key focus areas:
- Resource identification and organization
- Decision making
- Family communications/working with siblings
- Self Care through the depth and aftermath
I love what I do. I work with people in organizations who are interested, or are in need of, revitalization and renewal. There may be too much pain, too much confusion or too much complexity. They are seeking new skills and new perspectives that increase their personal and professional effectiveness.

Christelle supports her clients in transforming their lives from the inside out.
She works with individuals who want to become more successful at what they do, more connected in their relationships and more inspired in their life. She helps them get more deeply in touch with themselves so they can develop the competencies and qualities that they need in order to be more confident in their life and live more fully.
She doesn't offer a "one recipe works for all" solution but rather a deep dive into the unique ways in which each of us grows and shines.
In her personal life, Christelle loves to dance tango and travel. One of her recent highlights was in 2016 when she traveled the world solo for 2 whole years. These travels taught her important lessons... on the real inner and outer power of women in all corners of the world, on the importance of slowing down to better hear the whispers of our souls and receive the answers to our lives, and on helping, giving and receiving on a human level. These travels touched her core and changed her forever.
But what transformed her life in even more tangible ways was her experience of being coached during her first year of coaching studies, and that coaching being combined with her own healing work. The growth that she got out of that was exponential and so liberating. This is why, today, she chooses to share this powerful gift with the people who come to her for support and who are ready to commit to themselves and not give up when things get tough. She deeply believes in this work, and she deeply believes in her clients to do their own inner-work and be changed forever.

I have gone through a major personal inner journey myself, which has enabled me to access the capacity to be there and hold the space for people in transition and in need.

As a seasoned business practitioner, an entrepreneur and a Certified Integral Coach, I work with leaders who dare to rest with questions; to learn; to trust; and to experiment. As they go inside and uncover the depth of their own wisdom, they find the inspiration, and the power, to change their world.

Create a refuge for your creativity and intellect to open a possibility.
I have been working in dimensions of strategic change for more than 15 years. However, it is only in the last 5 that I have made a shift toward including the body, the holistic self and person in embodied learning. This moves me into the places I really care about, and it allows me to work with others creatively and deeply while being grounded in the science of the brain-body, as well as traditions of human development, psychology, and learning. We all seek integration, and possibilities open as we operate more from our center and who we are.

I also volunteer in grief support.
I am motivated by the integration of yin and yang presence ~ doing and being, intelligence and wisdom, in our lives and organizational worlds.
Learning in our real lives and our personal-professional roles is exciting, but it is also messy. I have a deep alignment and respect for people in these times. I devote my intellect, skill, and practice to these spaces. I open and invite you to share that space, to own it and make it yours.
You can contact me for i) professional & leadership coaching, ii) personal change coaching, and iii) somatic and healing work. I work with organizations and individuals in-person and by phone and video conference. Contact me to see if we are a good fit. I have recently relocated to the Boulder, CO area from the SF Bay Area.

Private Coaching Practice 2001-Present
Clients include dentists, executives, managers and a range of
people who want or need a supportive, skilled and experienced coach as they navigate life's journey.
I work with clients to identify and clarify their vision for their life and work, and to chisel away internal and external blocks to its full expression. Attuning to each person's circumstances and personality, I create individualized programs to help clients develop the habits and capacities they need to enact their goals.
I have many years' experience with learning and creativity that I draw on to support my clients:
´ As a project manager I'm privileged to work with brilliant thinkers to integrate educational technology with a powerful, research-based K_6 curriculum. Drawing on the work of visionary developmental psychologist Jean Piaget, this curriculum braids together academic and social-emotional development. It supports continuous professional learning by providing teachers with materials that engage and motivate students, develop critical thinkers, and promote reflection about learning and community.
´ As a writer focusing on avant-garde poetics I've published three books and numerous chapbooks, and have seen my work published widely in magazines and anthologies. I'm the recipient of the Leo Litwak Fiction Award and several grant-supported writing residencies. From 2009_2011, I was an Affiliate Artist at Headlands Center for the Arts. I've served on the California Book Awards poetry jury since 2012.
´ As a creative writing teacher at the University of San Francisco, San Francisco State University, Santa Clara University, and California Poets in the Schools, and in private workshops and one-to-one consultations, I've helped thousands of people of all ages access their creativity and use it to shape vibrant art.
´ As a student of diverse art forms and somatic practices, I've studied theater, flute, figure drawing, dance, Tai Chi, yoga, Qi Gong, TRE (trauma release exercise), and EFT (emotional freedom technique). I've created and performed solo and collaborative multimedia pieces incorporating various combinations of poetry, recorded and live voice, movement, still images, and film. I've practiced meditation for the past 20 years, and in 2015 did my first month-long silent meditation retreat.
´ As a breast cancer survivor I've been to hell and back.
I believe that personal transformation is the foundation for meaningful change. By starting with ourselves we can examine ingrained patterns of communicating, responding, and collaborating. As we start to understand and shift our patterns we experience new possibilities for how we show up, and in these possibilities are the seeds of larger change.
Combining 10 years of design leadership experience with formal training, I help individuals and teams design the structures, processes, and cultures that help them do their best work.
I'm a career and life coach in the Washington, DC area who loves to help individuals become better at management, communication, leadership, and more. I help folks achieve this through a mix of talk therapy tactics, actionable items and plans, and coaching on empathy and mindfulness.

Wendy is motivated for clients to connect with their authentic self. Uncovering what one truly wants, seems like the logical first step, however ask around and notice how hard that question is to answer. Through a skillful method, she finds what motivates them to get up in the morning. Once that is established, how can that energy be channeled to leading a fulfilling life?
Wendy helps her clients take charge of their lives again by designing practices and exercises that increase their self-awareness. They become more present again to their own needs and feel they can own their own careers again. Before you know it, clients report shifts in their thinking, in their actions and in the way, they collaborate with others.
After a career in professional services (PwC, Deloitte), Wendy felt a desire to help others through coaching. After her certification thru NVW, Wendy is now studying Body Psychotherapy and somatic coaching.

Over the last 20+ years I've gone from completing a Doctorate in Environmental Engineering at MIT to becoming a Software Developer at the height of the .com boom, and then in 2011, I transitioned into to coaching and organizational development at Google. My latest chapter is launching a leadership development practice, Inner Sky, so that I can focus on the work that I love best: coaching and developing individuals and leadership teams.
More profoundly, during my transition into parenthood over 10 years ago, the stories and coping strategies that I’d used to live my prescribed life suddenly fell away. Initially, it was a struggle to find the right kind of help to navigate all the thoughts, emotions and sensations that I couldn’t explain or manage. When I finally did find people and resources to support me, I saw that life was way bigger than I’d ever realized and that there were so many people, modalities and tools that can support us in healing and developing ourselves. Ever since, I have been on a path to discover, experience, learn, integrate and share modalities for growth and empowerment.
Both my professional and personal experiences have shaped me and inform my perspective. They have helped me to connect deeply with who I am and my purpose, and I bring that into each of my coaching relationships. I am passionate about the work that I do and am committed to supporting you and your intention to heal and develop yourself.

At the heart of who I am is energy to transform – be that an organisation, a system or process, a team, or a person looking for a new way to be in the world. I believe in empowering people and organisations to grow and develop.
I’m a principled leader who builds a motivated and high-performing team, whether I’m a member of the team or their team coach.

Integral Coaching Services
Working with a Certified Integral Coach results in your:
´ Having greater competence, deeper meaning and more fulfilling engagement in your life.
´ Being able to continually improve on your own afterwards.
´ Integrating all aspects of your life„personal, professional, physical, mental, practical, and visionary.
´ Accessing a strong network to support you in your ongoing development.
´ Experiencing a profound learning about yourself so that you can free yourself from habitual patterns.
From the beginning, Dr. Hewitt listens deeply and sensitively to where you are in your life, in fulfilling your ambitions, in addressing your concerns, and in your personal fulfillment. He listens in many domains - cognitive, emotional, somatic, relational, and spiritual - and pays special attention to how you are integrating these domains. Then he makes an integrating assessment based upon what you've said and designs a program that fits you and builds lasting competence.
Coaching is my calling. Despite achieving financial success, I was missing a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from my work. I was on the lookout for a new path for several years. Then someone suggested I consider coaching. The more I learned, the more I realized that helping people was my true passion.
I possess a coach’s unique ability to listen and pay attention differently in order to bring awareness to underlying currents that are holding you back. This will allow us to develop new practices and habits that will bring you closer to your full potential at work, and for many, to better manage imbalances between work and your personal life.
Frequently, obstacles and limitations are the result of “stories” you learned long ago that no longer serve you well and have led to a mindset that holds you back. Shining a light on this enables clients to move on, which in turn facilitates access to valuable qualities and attributes you may have buried or shut off.
I live in Chicago and coach clients in person throughout the Chicago metropolitan area and more distant clients via Skype.
Prior to coaching, I spent 30 years in a variety of professional and entrepreneurial roles (attorney, financial analyst, trader, business executive/partner, private investor) and fields (real estate development, financial markets, alternative investments, wealth management, direct private investments). I did this in family businesses, with growing private businesses, and as a sole proprietor. The common threads were technical competence, good judgment, integrity, and strong people skills.
I earned an MBA from Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management, a JD from University of Illinois College of Law, and a BS in Finance from University of Illinois.
I have worked as an organizational development consultant and coach for 20 years. I have designed and facilitated leadership development programs for numerous companies, most recently in Philips Healthcare, and have coached many leaders from managers to vice presidents to increase their effectiveness in leadership and in life. In 2015, I retired from full-time in-company work but am enjoying self-employment as a coach working with people in leadership roles. My style is compassionate yet direct in helping my clients achieve their goals.
Nelson's Fortune 100 cross-functional and P&L management experience, a Ph.D. in Engineering, and training as a certified behavioral-coach, enable him to simultaneously work with coaching clients on two tracks; a challenge track that is focused on helping the client gain new insights into a business or management challenge, and a leadership development coaching-track. Observations about obstacles encountered on the challenge track inform the leadership-development track of needed behavior shifts or new competencies.

Selected Coaching Examples
Nelson has coached senior leaders across numerous business functions (e.g., General Management, Marketing, Sales) across the tech sector, and technical-function (e.g., Engineering, Program Management, IT) leaders across both low-tech and high-tech industries. His engagements include issues dealing with:
High Potential Development: Working with succession plan candidates or other high potentials to ensure that they will be prepared for an increased level of responsibility. Example: The high-performing Director of Engineering for an Aerospace division of a Fortune 300 company was averaging a 65-hour work-week, and would likely be overwhelmed by any increased responsibility. His coaching program focused on developing the capacity to avoid over committing to stakeholder demands and on improving the clarity of his delegation. After only 6-months of coaching he was able to reduce his average work-week to 52-hours and to increase the white space in his calendar so that his staff had much easier access to his valued input. At the same time, his organizationÍs performance as measured by on-time design releases improved.
Executive Coaching & Development: Working with senior executives to identify and achieve behavioral shifts that will improve their effectiveness.
Example: The Vice President of Sales for a large technology company did not adequately challenge his organizationÍs performance, and was not very decisive. His coaching program focused on his personality-rooted lack of assertiveness and featured practices aimed at developing the ability to not avoid or delay necessary confrontation, to hold people accountable to demanding commitments, and to base those commitments on good planning and analytics. Feedback from the organization was that he achieved those behavior shifts, and as a consequence, his sales organization had stepped up its game.
Executive Coaching & Development: Working with senior executives to identify and close competency gaps that are undermining their leadership effectiveness.
Example: A Group Vice President for Technology at a Fortune 300 firm desired to improve his ability to influence division General Managers (GMÍs) and division engineering-leaders over which he had no formal authority. His coaching program focused on improving his ability to develop trusting relationships with those stakeholders, and included practices aimed at coming across more authentically than previously allowed by his usually carefully managed facade, and a practice to increase his competence as an empathetic listener. The result was an exponential increase in his influence and impact.
Leadership Agenda: Working with senior executives to address specific organizational and leadership issues as they arise.
Example: Assisted the Vice President for Research & Development in a mid-size technology company in transitioning from a project-based product-development approach to a matrix-management approach. This allowed a level of functional oversight to individual product developments that could not be supported across independently managed projects without him being personally involved at a technical level. It thus also supported the developmental-coaching goal of him better empowering his organization.

I love working with people who want their lives to reflect their values and priorities. My clients come from different professions, cultures and situations which keeps my approach fresh and enriches my clients' experience.
It’s hard not to react to life, hard not to just let it happen to us. Most of us want to live with intention and with balance, but that is easier said than done. Often we may have achieved a certain amount of success, but still… something is lacking; our inner experience does not match our external achievements. Sometimes we can’t get past a hurdle, sometimes we have trouble finding a bright spot in the midst of success.
I’ve had a quarter century of experience helping people create more fulfilling lives – through their work and through their relationships. Synthesizing aspects of coaching, personal development, and individual and organizational dynamics, I listen - to not only the person but the context.
My process is goal-oriented. We collaborate for several months in which you’ll work as hard as I do -understanding your focal concern in the context of your life, and identifying elements and assumptions that may be compromising your capacities or affecting you in ways you aren’t aware of. I’ll create a development plan but you are responsible for the process. It won’t change your DNA but it will change your perceptions, interpretations and conversations, opening up new possibilities.
My process is active, not passive. I’ll invite you to the edge of your comfort zone but I won’t let you fall off. I’m pragmatic and creative; I make suggestions to help build skills and competencies in non-traditional ways. Surprise yourself.
I’ve helped professionals and entrepreneurs in finance, law, high tech, healthcare and nonprofits to:
•Master their professional demands while finding enjoyment and balance in their lives.
•Create momentum and opportunity by connecting their passion with their goals, and leveraging their support network
•Enhance their capacity to confront challenges and difficult conversations with clarity, confidence, and compassion.
•Develop a broad awareness of their blind spots and their strengths, so they can self-correct and maximize their potential.
•Strengthen relationships both personally and professionally
I am available in person, via videoconference, or phone. Contact me at suerolfecoaching@gmail or at 617-739-7107.

As an executive coach, Esther helps professionals in banking, consulting and finance be more effective in a new role that requires a change in leadership style and skills – or in an existing role where the client’s habitual ways no longer prove as effective.
Drawing on more than twenty years of experience as a corporate banker and strategic risk consultant , Esther is passionate about helping professionals and leaders be at their best under challenging circumstances.
Born in the Netherlands, Esther moved into new roles often and in countries as diverse as China, Denmark, France, Greece, Sweden and currently the UK.

Integral and Wellness coach
I bring to coaching the simple desire to be value added. My mission is to support you in bringing your best-self forward so that you may engage with what life brings in a way that promotes joy, connection and growth.
Whatever your topic, the aim is to merge the mind, body and heart to create meaningful change and develop the ability to self-generate, self-correct and self-sustain. I help you as the client to identify your strengths and values, clarify your vision and take action steps to move toward who you want to be. I will also collaborate with you to reset your overall state of wellness.
One of the most important rules in life is “Invest in yourself”. Where you will stand, how you will feel and what new things you will be capable of doing largely depends on what you do today. No improvement in your life will automatically happen without you working on it.
I invite you to make an investment in the bank account of YOU.

As a military veteran, I'm especially attuned to assisting service members and their families with the distinctive challenges faced while still in service to our country, during their military/civilian transition, and upon returning to a civilian setting.
I look forward to serving you and stewarding the gifts you bring to our coaching relationship.

Partner for Transformative Change. Integral Coaching and Bioenergetic Development
I am dedicated to partnership that frees you up for your qualities and competencies to emerge across all aspects of your work, your life and the world you inhabit. I have served over 180 clients through nine years of practice in China, Thailand, France, and now my native Singapore.
I partner clients who want to develop skill and elegance in desired and inevitable change. Working at your momentum, I draw from a symphony of experience that includes Leadership Embodiment®, Enneagram of Personality®, and the psych-spiritual-somatic work of Brennan Healing Science® and Pathwork®. While these provide theories, models and practices, my attunement to my clients springs from over 15 years of my own development.
From my own life frequented with interruptions, I valued the life-changing teachings they offered and chose to skillfully stay tuned in. From transforming organisations in my change consulting career, I brought my focus to developmental change.
I lead people to new possibilities of themselves, and foster the embodied learning needed for this to happen.
My gifts – deep listening, intuition and enquiry – invitingly align clients toward self-empowering ways of being.
I served Singapore Government Ministries, Prime Minister’s Office Singapore, Fortune 500 leaders, professionals and individuals from the fields of education, creative arts, health, engineering, capacity-building, entrepreneurship and coaching.
I am passionate about education and nurturing. I serve as Faculty for the Professional Coaching Course with New Ventures West. Through "The Aliveness Programme" that I co-create with Courage & Renewal Australasia, I coach leaders, educators and nurturers on integrating who they are with what they do. My perspectives on cross-cultural evolution have been invited as a speaker and mediator with a think tank from French universities HEC, Sciences Po, INSEAD, ESCP and Centrale; as well as at Networking Women Lille, a 1200-strong women entrepreneurs’ community where I was a founding member.
I contribute through writing to preserve our cultural heritage and spiritual legacy, serving educational foundations like 84000.co, graced by the patronage of the Royal Family of Bhutan.
I am available for corporate and individual coaching, and coach mentoring.
My areas of specialty are coaching senior leaders and managers individually, developing teams of leaders and helping founders build thriving, inclusive, and engaged cultures.Having served on 4 leadership teams for startup and tech companies, I have spent my career coaching leaders to be more present, authentic and effective in their roles. I've also served 20 years as an Army officer, I have held key leadership positions and led international teams on deployments around the world, experiencing timeless lessons in strong leadership. I have led teams of four startup tech companies through fast-paced growth, strategy development, international expansion, mergers/acquisitions, and cultural integration. I understand the opportunities and challenges of this shift, and can help leaders navigate each passage effectively.
FACILITATING AND CONSULTING EXPERIENCE
At my most recent role as an executive team member at video advertising tech company, SpotX, I focused on developing and coaching leaders at all levels. I have launched many successful leadership, coaching and mentoring programs focused on developing current executives and emerging leaders. I have experience building strong and inclusive cultures and increasing employee engagement to retain top talent and maintain vibrant cultures. My leadership workshops have helped individuals become more authentic leaders, and organizations fill their leadership pipeline. I have a passion for building and promoting strong company cultures, and making positive impact in recruiting and retention efforts for people of all backgrounds.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
I graduated from the University of Southern California with a BA in Communication and Political Science, and received an MBA from Georgia State University in Atlanta with a concentration in Marketing. I have been a certified Integral Coach™ from New Ventures West since 2013, and have used this training to coach leaders and teams to learn, collaborate, and innovate. I’m certified to administer and facilitate the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, which I have used for organizational development and team building. I am also trained to bring the Enneagram to organizations, focusing on improving communication, conflict, feedback, teamwork and coaching skills. I currently serve in the Colorado National Guard as the State Diversity & Inclusion Officer, and have also served as a liaison officer during major fires and floods in Colorado. In addition to the military, my leadership experience has been in the advertising, tech, logistics, transportation, consulting, and healthcare industries.
My coaching integrates my business and leadership experience with my training as a professional coach and strategist together with my substantial reading about and practice in the ways in which we improve our performance, peace and contribution.
In working with me, you will have the experience of a deepening knowledge of yourself, your relationships and the context in which you operate. I ask questions, I listen, and I help you to identify patterns, strengths and that which is absent from your life and your repertoire of skills and experiences. This, often entirely new and liberating, understanding, lays the foundation for the formulation of your own strategy.
We will work together to craft a personal strategy and a programme of reflection, action and learning for you to achieve your goals. In the design of this programme, you will have the benefit of my experience and my dedication to wide-ranging research and learning to crafting a solution that is unique to you.
I have worked for over 20 years in fast-paced, knowledge-intensive, values-driven environments characterised by complexity and diversity. In each instance I have been led by a desire to make a meaningful contribution to the people that I work with and the betterment of society, whilst consistently achieving excellence.
My experience combines executive management of the P&L across large businesses, budget and forecasting management, high level strategy development and its translation into organisational processes and systems together with the hands-on leadership and management of sales, creative, digital, content and marketing teams.
I started my career in industrial strategy working in various sectors between 1997 and 2002. In this period, I led research, wrote and presented strategy to senior stakeholder groups as well as converted the findings into training workshops that made the strategies more accessible and implementable.
From 2002 onwards, I worked in various capacities in the media industry starting as Strategic Consultant to the Founder and Manager Director of 99.2 Yfm (at that stage South Africa’s fastest growing radio station) and ending as the Chief Operating Office of Primedia Broadcasting (South Africa’s most commercially successful radio group for 15 consecutive years). I have also held the roles of Head of Sales, General Manager, Group Head of Strategy and acted as Chief Commercial Officer and CEO.
Although based in Cape Town South Africa, I am particularly interested in working with media executives across the world.
Areas of Support: Media Strategy Development, Executive Development, Personal Transformation, Expanding Possibilities, Career transition, Creative Support to aid strategic breakthroughs.

In addition to my training through New Ventures West, I also bring to coaching a decade of teaching yoga and mindfulness, as well as training in Trauma Sensitivity, NVC (Non-Violent Communication), Social Justice, IFS (Internal Family Systems), Hospice Care, Ayurveda, Western Neuroscience, and Eastern Philosophy. As a professional writer, I’ve also written on many of these topics.

I have taught yoga and meditation at business such as Twitter, Genentech, Asana, Kaiser Permanente, Second Genome, and Oculus, and understand the challenges of the corporate workplace. I can help you navigate the journey of starting or leaving a job, as well as starting a new business. But most importantly, I am committed to being a conduit for transformation, support, and connection with self and others.
I believe that we are all connected, and that when one person is not living the fullest most courageous expression of themselves, it affects us all. In this way, I view the development of insight through coaching as a doorway into a more meaningful and conscious way of living for you and for the world.
Joy is a coach for those looking for a healing experience.
Healing comes in many forms. It’s not only for the sick and traumatized. Anything you bring is welcome. You are invited to open up in the calm, quiet space she creates, unload those energies you don’t wish to carry around anymore, and begin to cultivate what is calling to you.
Joy’s Integral Coach certification ensures that your program will be rigorous and effective. Her other experience, including being a writer, artist, Aikido black belt and Reiki practitioner, will bring movement, creativity, meditation, and a safe, wide-open space for you to express yourself however you need.
Joy sees clients in the SF bay area and online.
What makes you come alive? What is your sense of peace, passion and purpose?
These are central questions in my coaching practice. Coaching is a process of coming alive. Living and working as a coach brings me joy because I get to share my gifts with you and to help you wake up to the life you have and live it fully.
My gifts are a blend of being me - a natural curiosity, an instinct to care about and support others, a love of deep connections - and having formal training in mindfulness, positive psychology and coaching. I am a Certified Integral Coach by NVW and hold a certificate in Core Strengths Coaching from SFSU. I have also completed individual courses such as Stanford University's Compassion Cultivation Training. I work with private clients as well as teach and coach at Stanford Health Promotion Services (iThrive) and the Graduate School of Business. Previously, I worked in Localization for Google and LinkedIn as a Language Specialist and Project Manager.
I have a special interest in and experience with coaching tech professionals, graduate college students and parents. I coach people facing questions around relationships, career path, professional identity, sexuality, family dynamics... experiencing stress, dissatisfaction, self-doubt, lack of purpose, curiosity to get to know themselves better... Each person is a beautiful individual who is looking to live their one life in a gratifying and meaningful way. In general, I appreciate and welcome clients who are looking for deeper self-discovery and want to experience life and participate in the world with calm, joy and strength.
Coaching usually starts with the client having a problem or a difficult decision to make. My coaching aims at helping you use that life situation to develop more deeply as a human being, rather than fix a specific issue on the surface level. This is a process in which I support you in finding and building skills and resources that will be useful for you in addressing issues or making long-term, sustainable changes in several different areas of your life, not only in the one problem or issue that brought you to coaching. Developmental coaching helps you unfold a deeper, stronger sense of self, which enables you to be and take action in the world in a way that is closely connected to your essential qualities.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” (Howard Thurman)
I welcome you to check out my Sanne Lim Coaching website and contact me! I wonder if you are finding yourself curious about coming alive and living with more peace, joy and satisfaction, and I invite you to share your questions with me...

I am a multidisciplinary producer/executor/operator and VC backed start-up founder.

As a New Ventures West graduate, Kim Gengler helps clients with stress management, career changes and challenges, leadership development, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. Her approach to coaching addresses the stress and anxiety we all experience in a world that wants to make everything important. By working to determine what truly is important, her clients come away with newfound focus, peace and happiness.
I have a diverse background in nonprofit management. In this role, I have collaborated with organizations and spiritual communities as a change maker and provided critical support to individuals and teams who are in transition.
I coach individuals and groups who want to have greater clarity and meaning, uncover their capacity to innovate, and meet their true potential.
Innovators who work with me awaken greater self-becoming to realize more relevant connections, develop skills to align better to growth and their emerging identity, and learn how to take action so they can move forward.
I interweave cognitive ways of knowing with the inner intelligence of individuals and groups then refocus it in a way that’s simple and evocative.
Noticing that my clients longed to open up new aspects of self, life and creativity, I conceived an approach that brought into focus the personal and professional, yet allowed space for the spiritual to guide them to a place of discovery.
Jessica has an extensive background of coaching, from the world of athletics, to corporate and non-profit management, to underprivileged adolescents. Her focus surrounds the somatic grounding of the body, deeper understanding of the self, all while appreciating the light hearted compassion that appears everywhere in life. Jessica’s clients have become more aware of how their body communicates to them in a way that reveals what their needs and true feelings are. Her clients also experience a deeper spiritual journey that opens up their perspective in this world. Clients become more familiar with the essence of who they are, while learning about the layers they have been wearing from the culture and habits of the world they live in. Diving into the way different personalities work together on a more detailed level cultivates healthier communication between the client’s type along with other types. This Enneagram work bridges the gap of the archetype of people, and how they can best interact with other types in a more loving way. The integration of learning about the body, mind, and heart leads people into a beautiful awareness of themselves, and this world.

My love of neuroscience, adult learning, systems thinking and accelerated learning brings a courageous flavor to my executive coaching for Embodied Leadership - in business and in life! Experience counts! I've been coaching since 1995, first educators then corporate leaders and entrepreneurs.

"With her great vision, creativity and warm heart, Cathy encourages all of us to find what is true and essential in a helpful and compassionate way".
David Daniels, MD. Founder of Enneagram Professional Training Program.
Passionate about guiding and inspiring others to create the life they are searching for, Cathy brings her multi-dimensional view of life and multi-cultural background to her coaching practice. What Cathy is particularly passionate about in coaching and teaching is to help people touch their inner truth and unknown potential to actively participate to the richness of life. Truth is essential to each person and yet not always easy to get a sense of it. Gaining a sense of how we unknowingly and automatically constrain ourselves is of great importance in developing intimate relationships, in leading more productive and fulfilling lives and in unleashing our talents in our personal and professional life.
Prior to developing her coaching practice, Cathy was a Marketing Manager at Hewlett-Packard for 10 years in France, New York, Singapore and California. After living in the San Francisco Bay Area for 14 years, she is now living in India where she coaches young Indian engineering students to define their personal and professional project and adults who find themselves in search of meaning in our fast changing world. She is also teaching Enneagram workshops.
Cathy's commitment to her own personal development has resulted in Certification as an Integral Coach® from New Ventures West in 2010 and from The Enneagram Professional Training Program led by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD in 2009. She also holds a Franco-American Master Degree in Marketing and is currently studying the Vedantas to continue her spiritual journey.
I help individuals, couples and families align their lifestyle, careers and daily activities behind their greatest values and aspirations. I started my career in international finance and investment banking, founded a few capital markets consulting firms, then said goodbye to it all to align my own career and daily activities behind my greatest values and aspirations. I am thriving, living my own unique life, and helping others do the same.
I live in San Francisco with my wife and three young children. During the school year we provide emergency foster care for victims of domestic violence and abuse. We are passionate about world travel, and spend 3-4 months every year exploring the world as a family.
Virginia’s coaching puts equal emphasis on the polarities of “being” and “doing.” Through their work together, she challenges her clients to shift their mindsets to implement sustainable behavioral change. Her approach is informed by theories ranging from neuroscience, systems theory, philosophy, psychology, and Somatics. She uses an integral approach with her clients, incorporating all aspects of their lives into their coaching work. The result is that her clients transform into leaders who have the capacity to respond to the quickly changing business landscape with a grounded sense of dignity, respect and effectiveness.
What's it like to work with Virginia?
In using the integral approach Virginia asks her clients to involve all aspects their lives. She coaches the whole person, not just the person who shows up at the office.
Her methods include deep listening, teaching and the use of practices which helps her clients embody the change they want to see in themselves. The work helps her clients move into a more reflective state so they have the capacity to respond to life’s circumstances with dignity and effectiveness.
When working with Virginia you will be engaged in self-observation and exploration; you will forge a path forward to create possibility, effectiveness and focus; and you will engage deeply in practice.
Engaging in practice is an essential ingredient to change. Practices create awareness. Awareness leads to being present. When we are present we have a stronger capacity to choose where to direct our attention and what action to take. The more choice we have, the more power we have in our lives. The result is that we are able to break free of the habits that have held us in unproductive and ineffective behaviors.
Virginia uses the art of “practice” in two ways. She teaches practices which are “active” practices which can be employed in the moment when her clients are faced with a circumstance that could throw them off their balance.
The second kind of practices are “foundational” and these practices give her clients the embodied capacity and level of competence that allows them to meet the circumstances of life as they arise. These become embodied and allow transformation to occur at the deepest of levels.
The purpose of practice is beautifully summed up in this quote from the Dali Lama:
“A tree with strong roots can withstand the most violent of storms, but the tree with no roots can’t grow roots as the storm approaches on the horizon.”
A word on the use of Somatics:
The principals of Somatics recognize that the self is indistinguishable from the body, from our lived experience. Somatic practices are effective because they retrain the nervous system by attending to the self as a whole. In this way real change can take root and become a lasting experience.
Working through the body is a potent gateway to reshape your context and capability to embrace change, inspire others and reach goals greater than previously through possible. Virginia will guide her clients back into their bodies which most of us left in childhood. She helps her clients recognize and draw from the multiple brains of the body – mind, heart and gut to find focus and wisdom.
“By staying present and aware of what is happening the leader can do less and achieve more” The Tao of Leadership
Over the last 20+ years as the creator and leader of global human resources departments, Virginia Dean has worked with C-suite executives and entrepreneurs in life sciences, professional services, high technology, and non-profit organizations such as BeiGene, TESARO, Ariad Pharmaceuticals, The Bridgespan Group Macromedia (now Adobe) and Allaire. She has created engagement-centered cultures in rapidly growing organizations, launching programs to support the sustainable evolution and performance of Corporate cultures. Virginia’s work has encompassed leadership and management development, performance assessment, engagement, onboarding, recognition and performance reward systems.
In addition to an MBA from Simmons College’s School of Management, Virginia is a Certified Professional Coach with New Ventures West (ICF certified). She has completed Georgetown University’s Team Coaching program, is certified in the Leadership Versatility Index (LVI) assessment tool and the Hogan Personality suite of assessments and has studied and worked with Internal Family Systems theory.

Michael has been an executive coach and trainer since 2006. Since then, he has helped hundreds of successful professionals get out of their own way by enabling them to develop and maintain higher levels of productivity, self-awareness and effectiveness so that they can create a bigger impact to the bottom line while experiencing greater satisfaction in their work and life.
Before finding his calling as an executive coach, he spent 15 years in various management roles, leading teams in the advertising, consumer marketing, and design industries. Through this experience, he developed a deep appreciation for the intense personal and organizational demands that successful executives must meet every day.
Michael’s sweet spot is supporting leaders for whom the development of deeper leadership competencies is being blocked by an underlying issue of lack of balance, stress, or poor self-management. Build capacity for greater balance and relaxed focus, and the real work of developing oneself as a leader can begin.
One of Michael’s core areas of expertise is productivity. He developed this focus during his time as a Senior Coach and Director of Business Development for Coaching Services for David Allen, widely considered to be the productivity guru of this era. He incorporates many of the ideas and practices he learned from David Allen into his work when appropriate.
Michael has a broad range of industry experience, including investment banking, technology, biotech, consumer products, and private equity.

I believe I can do anything I set my mind to. And I believe you can, too!
I am passionate about people developing to become all they can be.
Following a rewarding senior executive career over a period of 25 years in Telecoms and FMCG (e.g. member of the Executive Committee of a FTSE 10 company in the UK as Group Human Resources Director), I am currently enjoying a portfolio career.
I combine corporate non-executive and advisory board roles with mentoring and (team)coaching in a business environment. I also enjoy working with private clients.
I certified as an Integral Development Coach in 2012 and I am a Partner at TheCoachingHouse, based in the UK.
I am fascinated with change both at personal and organisational level.
Clients particularly like my commitment and enthusiasm in helping them to (re)discover, apply and embed their full potential. I am seen as a 'fellow traveller', learning as much from my clients as they can learn (hopefully) through me. Clients also appreciate my authenticity and my capacity to create a safe place where they can explore and experiment with new and fulfilling ways to approach work and life.
I have coached clients in the following industries: telecoms, industrial services, utilities (water, electricity and power), oil and gas, hospitality, entertainment, insurances, banking, FMCG, consultancy, advertising etc
I hold a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology and a Postgraduate in Business Economics. I am a certified Integral Development Coach and studied Transactional Analysis for many years. I enjoy being an on-going student of Leadership Agility, the Enneagram and Leadership Embodiment. I am also a member of the Neuroleadership Institute.
I am a Belgian national and live currently in Surrey, England with my wife Nadine, who is a Child Psychotherapist. I have two fantastic grown-up daughters, Ellen and Lien.
My interests include learning, playing golf, strumming the electric guitar, Taiji Qigong, meditation, poetry, travel and fine dining. I have recently discovered the joys of supporting a rugby team (Harlequins).
My mission is to serve and be in community with changemakers - people who foster positive change in the world, starting from within. I work with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them define and achieve meaningful contribution.
I bring in-depth knowledge of teaching, learning, and human development to my work as a coach. Most recently, I served as an executive leader at EL Education, a national K-12 education transformation nonprofit. There, I led the professional development arm of the organization and supported educators and organizational leaders across the country. I believe that people want to collaborate with others who are not just knowledgeable, but who also move through the world with presence and integrity while they create work that sings of quality.
I am certified to administer The Leadership Circle Profile, a globally-respected 360° assessment tool and framework for leadership development. I am also deeply skilled with the Enneagram and will be completing my certification as an Enneagram teacher through The Narrative Enneagram by fall of 2019. Other aspects of life that light me up and inform my coaching work include nature, yoga, poetry, philosophy, and social justice.

Jenny brings creative energy to her coaching relationships, and enables clients to integrate their personal intent, values and strengths with career and leadership development goals.
Trained as both a professional and life coach, Jenny appreciates the mystery and possibilities of change and transformation.

If there is one thing Amy Hillyard, Principal at Hillyard Consulting, wants you to know, it’s that being a successful leader doesn’t have to come at the expense of a rich and meaningful life.
Over the course of Amy’s nearly two-decade career, she has guided leaders from companies as diverse as Apple, Gap, and United Way toward clarity in their work and personal lives, illuminating a path to success, balance, and fulfillment.
During Amy’s early career in the burgeoning tech industry, she witnessed how personal growth and overcoming resistance to change could fuel progress and innovation. Those experiences launched her interest in the field of organizational development as a lens for understanding human behavior. Today, Amy uses the frameworks of organizational development and integral coaching, complemented by creative tools, such as in-the-moment graphics, story, and metaphor to spark insight, diversify thought, and inspire the momentum necessary for individual and organizational transformation.
In her own life, Amy embraces the same principles of leadership and organizational health that she uses to guide her clients. In addition to running her consulting practice, Amy and her husband, Chris, co-own and operate Farley’s, a pair of community-building coffee houses in the Bay Area. She also commits a significant portion of her leadership time to pro-bono community-focused projects. Notably, Amy acts as an organizer and touchpoint for small businesses in Oakland at Oakland Indie Alliance. She can often be found in her Oakland backyard, making pizza in her wood-fired oven for warm and boisterous groups of family and friends.
Amy, a certified Integral Coach, holds a master’s degree in organizational psychology from John F. Kennedy University and a Bachelor of Arts in international relations from the University of California, Davis. She is a trained graphic facilitator and holds numerous certifications in strategy, feedback, and change management models. She hopes her path can help you illuminate yours.

I am a leadership coach and strategic consultant in the creative industries. For two decades, I have applied my strategic, entrepreneurial, problem-solving skills across a range of projects and sectors. I’m Australian with a US Green Card who lives in Los Angeles and works anywhere. I have multiple post-graduate degrees and awards in social impact, entrepreneurship and innovation from Australia’s leading universities.

Integral Coach ICF ACC
My past careers include work as a navy pilot where I worked my way up to officer and currently I am the Managing Director of a subsidiary of a large multinational company. My chosen occupations have enabled me to work in different countries around the world; meeting new people, learning about new cultures, discovering new ways of life. One of the key aspects of working with a large multinational is the fast pace of change and the perplexities that can come with it. Bearing witness to this confusion and encouraged by the positive impact past coaching had on me as a client, I became enthusiastic about the idea of educating myself in the art of supporting people amidst transitions, changes, challenges, confusion, uncertainty and crisis.
It is not new that businesses have to adapt to changing circumstances but what is new is the pace of the necessary cycle of adjustment. For some, this cycle is now continuous and the ability to adapt to change has become the norm. The uncertainty that can come with change can take its toll on people as they try to harness stability within their environments to safeguard their future, meaning that most of us are now in permanent transition; whether it be transition of our roles, our companies, cultures, or, of course, within our personal lives.
My diverse experiences in life have given me valuable insight into embracing change, how to take ownership, and how to accept uncertainty with a new sense of optimism. Over the years I have learned different ways of connecting with people, how to be empathetic and compassionate, and most importantly how to listen to their narrative. Not only do I listen to the narrative, I hear the person as a whole and I work to create a safe space where my clients can feel free to share and reflect without feeling pushed or judged.
Within this safe space, the environment is set to help my clients reach a level of trust which in turn brings about an awareness allowing them to more clearly identify what is holding them back from their journey towards what they want to achieve and who they want to be.
As we are all unique individuals, outcomes are specific to each person and as an Integral Coach® I endeavour to assist my clients to achieve their personal goals as well as to achieve long-term excellence supported by self-correction and self-generation. By focusing on development and working with various self-observation exercises and practices, we will embed new behaviours and fresh ways of thinking to allow your own personal alignment to unfold.
In short, I will do everything I can to make myself redundant as soon as possible.
Juli’s passion in life is has been in discovering her true self and the world she lives in. This passion has taken her on many paths to understanding what it truly means to be a human being. Her rich background of formal education as well as life experiences inform the complexity of her coaching style and what she uniquely brings to her clients.
Her background includes:
An AA in Biology and Botany. She has appreciation and understanding for connection to the natural world.
A BA in Studio Arts which she uses as a means for self discovery and the expression of the “authentic” self.
An MA in Depth Psychology that has given her many tools and resources that she brings into her assessment and coaching. Juli’s thesis was inspired by Psychoanalyst Carl Jung’s work with Mandalas as a way of knowing the self.
25+ years of various somatic and health trainings including Yoga, Breathwork, Chakra work , Shiatsu and the importance of the body-mind connection and self care.
30+ years studying various Spiritual traditions and meditation forms including , Transcendental Meditation, Judaism and Kabbalah, Vipassana, Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity, Taoism and the esoteric studies of Astrology, the I-ching, and Tarot.
Certification as an Integral Coach by New Ventures West.
Juli believes that self care and learning self love and compassion are the cornerstones for learning to live a life that is integral and genuine. She deeply listens to her clients stories and works towards bringing forth their innate creative potential by unblocking their self limiting stories and presenting new possibilities and skillful practices that can inspire a new found awareness where a new way of being can take root.
Anne is a certified Integral Coach specialising in somatic development.
She coaches people from all walks of life, supporting greater expression of the unique art that lives in each person. Through her highly attuned and embodied approach, her work focuses on allowing the implicit wisdom of the body to be known and integrated into the conscious mind.
She is a classically trained actress and has worked in theatres in London and in her native Norway.
Anne loves bringing a mix of coaching, theatre, dance and mindfulness to the groups she works with .( George Washington University, Center for Leadership, University of San Diego , school of Leadership)

Before coaching, I worked for many years in a corporate setting, first as a lawyer in a city law firm and then for Standard Chartered Bank in a variety of senior roles leading large multidisciplinary teams across the world. I loved the challenge, and it gave me my strong commercial focus and a real understanding of the skills senior roles require.
I also know firsthand what it’s like to work in a tough, fast‐paced environment and bring up a family whilst working.
What I enjoyed most was connecting with different people, and fostering their development based on what they needed as individuals. I had a reputation for engaging with my teams on a personal level, rather than an arm’s length, “stakeholder management” style. So it felt like a natural development when I qualified as a coach in 2013, and set up my own business.
Since then I’ve helped clients achieve deep personal development, successfully manage transition and grow their leadership abilities. Helping people explore themselves and discover their true potential is still what I find most rewarding. Now I get to nurture that individual connection, and see the results, with every one of my clients.
When I’m not coaching, I’m usually at home in London with my family; enjoying great food or seeking out wide skies and open seas where I feel free. I love dance, movement and music, especially singing, which brings me deep joy (and I’ll admit, at times, abject terror…)
I see music as a connector of people as well as a way of expressing myself, and my approach to music is very much aligned with my coaching style. After all, in the words of jazz legend Thelonious Monk, “A genius is the one most like himself.”
I have an MA in Law from Cambridge, an ICF recognised coaching qualification as an Integral Development Coach and am certified to run Coaching Circles™.
Fielding coaches, consults and facilitates for individual clients and teams who wish to be more effective as they manage personal, organizational and leadership challenges.
Fielding is a certified integral coach and a seasoned facilitator and educator with over twenty years experience developing people, helping them to have a greater and more sustainable impact on the teams and organizations that they lead. Prior to launching her coaching practice, Fielding worked in business and strategy roles for sustainability focused and other purpose driven companies, served as the founding director of a code school, and held instructional and management roles within outdoor education nonprofits, including as a USCG licensed maritime captain, instructor and trainer for Outward Bound. She's lived, worked and traveled to 30+ countries, including once sailing across the Pacific in a 42-foot sailboat.
Fielding takes a whole person, whole life approach to coaching, believing that it isn’t possible to separate the person from the role: a leader is an individual, shaped by their unique experience, how they spend time in all parts of life, how they take care of themselves on and off the job, and what matters to them inside their role and outside of it. When Fielding works with leaders and teams, she looks at how they are showing up in all parts of their lives, what beliefs are limiting their potential and how to both break down those false beliefs and establish new practices to become more resourced, authentic and effective in all they do. Fielding works with clients in person, online (via zoom) and also by phone.
Fielding earned her AB in Environmental Science and Policy from Duke in 2001, and her MBA from the Fuqua School of Business in 2010. She is a certified Integral Coach through New Ventures West and a National Outdoor Leadership School graduate.

Hello and welcome.
I have no shining resume to baffle you with. No story or background to impress I am what I am and reach out to you to share and support you in a growing network of life supporting coaching with the desire of alleviating some of the unsettling effects of the modern world.
I AM Integral coaching comes from a place of deep kindness and compassion for you as a fellow traveller on life's path. If you choose to work with me we will walk into a coaching relationship with no boundary. We enter the coaching space as equals regardless of social, economic, educational, racial or any other background. My client base ranges from CEO's and senior medics to supporting individuals living in poverty. What's important to me is that we let go of these labels that keep us locked up and defined.
If you choose to work with me we would work in partnership as two people travelling in a set space and time, exploring new possibilities and opportunities. It's critically important that I'm not seen as a perfect model of a human being with my own life all sorted out so be ready to accept some coach imperfections and vulnerabilities. Yes I have a comprehensive toolkit that can help support you, but NO I'm definitely not a Guru. The benefit of knowing this is that we can learn to move together to develop a creative approach to dealing with sticky life issues rather than me (or you) thinking I always know what is best. Working together you'll discover that the opportunity to change and grow is ever present and this works both ways.
As an Integral Coach I will work with you as a whole and complete human being. This will involve us exploring every domain of your life – your thinking patterns, your body and behaviours, your relationship with yourself and others, and your environments at home and work. The purpose of the coaching is to build resilience and stability, while unlocking the potential of your inner unique qualities to shine. The program design, with its practices, observations and reflections alongside my deep layers of compassionate insight will help you develop skills that will support you for a lifetime and will open the door to fresh perspectives.
I've been on the receiving end of Integral Coaching and it has transformed my life. Now it's my opportunity to reach out to You!
I am accredited as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) at the International Coaching Federation and Registered Coach at Comensa (Coaches and Mentors of South Africa). Other certifications include accreditation as Masters HR Pracitioner at the SABPP.
I have 15 years’ experience in the field of Human Resources Management and have a passion for the development of human potential. This passion made me embark upon the journey to become an Integral Coach. I believe we can only reach our full potential by following a holistic approach to understand ourselves and to learn competencies to unleash the potential that lives inside us.
I completed the ACC – Coaching for Development Program in 2017, and the PCC – Professional Coaching Certification in 2019.Both these courses are accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and are offered in partnership by the Centre for Coaching at the UCT Graduate School of Business and New Ventures West – one of the leading Coaching schools in the US. My other qualifications include a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management from the University of Stellenbosch.
Someone once said:
“It’s amazing how one little conversation can change things forever.”
I trust that this will be your experience of the coaching journey and I look forward to partnering with you on your way to a whole new way of being and connecting to the world.
Helping you leverage powerful communication, emotional intelligence and influencing skills so you can make a visible impact in your organization.

I am trained as an Integral Coach and engaged in coaching and personal development for several years, but my passion for this work comes from life experience. At mid-life, I had a difficult decision to make. I could continue to stay safe, keep my life very small, and not make waves. Or I could break out of my own carefully built prison cell, find myself again and be brave. That is what I did and it’s why this coaching work means so much to me.
I’m told I am one of the best listeners, and that I have a deep thoughtfulness and empathy that puts a client at ease. As your coach I will:
Listen closely to how you interpret yourself, how you make sense of your world, how you narrate your life. Your story, the role you play and the language you use are clues.
Pay attention to what shows up in your body. I may invite you to do somatic work, to get you to physically move beyond your comfort zones.
Are you ready to unleash your own wild and powerful life? If so, I would love to work with you!

She has worked with every level of the C-suite as well as senior managers and individual contributors. Her ability to connect with others, actively listen and provide insight creates a safe space for transformative change.

Tamera is also skilled in the Enneagram theory of personality receiving advanced training through The Enneagram Institute.
The most common issues her clients choose to work on involve increasing awareness around emotional intelligence and improving communication. The Integral method of coaching is highly effective because it strives for long term sustainable change while also addressing a client’s immediate concerns. A variety of assessment tools may be used, however one-on-one conversation continues to be the most effective method for working with personality and self-awareness. Behavioral, communication and managerial skills may also be assessed through shadowing an employee and conducting feedback interviews.

My professional experience spans 25 years and three continents, predominantly in communications, change and coaching. Coming from a corporate background I know first-hand the challenges of maintaining balance and how hard it is to keep perspective in a fast-paced world.
I specialize in transitions - career transitions, life transitions - aging, 'empty nest', finding purpose, accepting death. We all go through transitions, however small or big, and still we sometimes need help to gain clarity in making decisions or as I say, to recalibrate. This is what two of my clients have to say about their transitioning:
"I had a wonderful coaching experience with Jacinta. She helped me to clarify challenges both professionally and personally that I had been dealing with for some time, in essence helping me to become “unstuck”. She is warm, compassionate, challenging and supportive. She helped me me move beyond the frame I was stuck in, and as a result of her coaching I made some enormous life decisions, including moving on from a company I’d been with for 10 years. I would whole-heartedly recommend her."
"Jacinta worked with me as a coach at a time when I was going through significant transition in life. Having worked in the same company, in the same place, in similar roles for over a decade, some degree of fixedness and stereotypes had set in me which I was finding difficult to even identify, let alone break away from. Jacinta, through her empathetic and insightful ways, worked with me patiently to hold a polite mirror to some of them, and help me discover small progressive steps that did make a difference. I would say my stint with her was the aid by which I did make some departures from my norm."
I find that joy and fulfillment come from helping to alleviate suffering in the world. I enjoy working with people and organizations to create new possibilities. I work for Omidyar Network, a philanthropic investment firm focused on creating positive social impact in the world. I spend time working with both our internal talent at Omidyar Network, as well as providing coaching and advisory services to the talented Entrepreneurs around the globe that are part of Omidyar Network’s portfolio. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to live and work in numerous countries around the globe in the capacity of human resources and people development.
I am a certified Integral Coach®, working with founders, CEOs, EDs, high-level government officials and senior executives who seek to develop their leadership capacity. I was in your shoes. I was a founder and CEO of two venture-backed consumer-facing Internet companies. A remarkable coach helped me to transform my focus from tech start-ups to working to solve the global crisis of climate change. I served as Executive Director of a prominent global climate policy non-profit for six-years. I have mentored and coached many people along the way.
I work with leaders who seek to be more effective in their mission and more deeply connected with those whom they lead. I develop individualized development programs to help my clients slow down so that they can clarify their vision and be more at ease in life and work in order to more fully unleash their creative power for the common good.

Prior to launching my business in 1987, I held highly-successful sales, marketing and leadership positions for Fortune 500 companies in the aerospace, entertainment, technology and executive/career placement industries. McDonnell Douglas Automation Company recruited me to be part of their marketing and sales force – one of only a handful of women in the field at the time.
The company transitioned to McDonnell Douglas Information Systems Group (later acquired by Electronic Data Systems and Boeing) and recruited me as the first National Industry Executive for Aerospace for that division. Being at the forefront of both bleeding and leading edge technologies has been a wild and fascinating ride that I still enjoy today.
I not only embrace change, I love being a catalyst for change and have had the pleasure of working with distinguished companies in leading-edge technologies such as: CAD/CAM/CAE systems which changed the way products are designed, engineered and manufactured; ceramics for dental and military applications; and, later, the forefront of digital audio workstation technology which completely changed how sound is produced for music, film and television.
My appetite for working in innovation has continued with, among others, technologies in aviation, aerospace, entertainment, healthcare and the life sciences, including proprietary laser processes for treating periodontal disease and software for compliance and regulatory industries.
Passion for Executive & Leadership Coaching
In the early 1990’s, I became passionate about executive and leadership coaching -- now a mainstay in corporate, business, academic, non-profit and government enterprises. What intrigued me most to learn about this industry was noticing that the companies with great leaders were the ones who attracted greater talent and tended to be more easily financed by the various venture capital communities. They also tended to achieve greater business results.
Along the same spectrum, I extended my curiosity and education about leadership and developmental coaching into the emergence and management of personal brand and cultural alignment as equally-sound business strategies.
Personal and Company Brand Development and Alignment
Leaders and teams of rapidly-growing and/or changing organizations as well as individuals who want to transition from one professional level to the next within a current organization or after leaving a position, a company, or a board, are the clients I typically serve.
I believe that helping people understand and develop themselves and their personal brands in an integral way is as important as helping companies understand how alignment between personal and organizational brands is a really smart, sustainable marketing and growth strategy. Can you imagine the culture and business results you would have in your company with alignment between the company vision and brand and the people you engage to "make it" happen?
Co-Founder - Entrepreneurial Growth Accelerator
During the Dotcom Era, I co-founded Venture Point – Tech Coast Small Business Development Center, a public-private partnership (hosted by the Orange County Business Council and funded by them, the SBA, California Technology, Trade and Commerce Agency and community sponsors) to accelerate the growth of high tech/growth companies.
This project helped me put into practice some of the lessons I had been learning, and continue to learn, in my pursuit of developing great leaders and companies. With a core team of highly-skilled coaches and consultants that we attracted who believed in our vision, we helped 450 entrepreneurs achieve extraordinary business and economic results by developing a coaching and consulting model that, at the time, became a nationally-recognized, “best practices” model and organization amongst the 1,000 centers in the network.
Business Development and Growth/Financing Strategist
When I first launched my business, my focus was providing interim and part-time sales and marketing management services for start-up and emerging high technology and entertainment companies who wanted executive sales and marketing management but could not afford to pay for full-time executives. Revenue and growth were paramount to their success. Along the way, I learned about the various financing strategies that companies can employ – from organic growth through sales to venture capital - and the many options in between.
I have helped companies create their business plans and raise capital from family and friends to angel and private investors to venture capitalists and traditional banks. While my focus today is more on the development of people, clients still retain me to help them develop business, financing and growth strategies as well as determine and facilitate appropriate connections to drive growth. When needed by the client or the project, I collaborate with or refer to other professionals in my global network to provide or refer relevant services or resources.
I love learning and am a perpetual student in both formal academic settings and as simply an observer of and participant in life. I was accepted to both dental and law school (and worked in both fields) before opting to become an entrepreneur and business professional who has been able to serve clients in both industries over the years. I have a BA in Psychology from Cal State University, Fullerton (CSUF) and am an alumna of several academic institutions including UC-Irvine where I studied the biological sciences and theater arts.
I’m a Board Certified Coach in Executive, Corporate, Business, Leadership, Career, Personal and Life Coaching from CCE-Global (a nationally–recognized and independent certifying organization) as well as a New Ventures West Certified Integral Coach. I hold other coaching, mentoring, and leadership assessment/development and facilitation certifications and am currently studying Conversational Intelligence with Judith E. Glaser and Coaching with ROI with Lisa Ann Edwards – both part of the World Business Executive Coach Summit organization.
Commitment to Community
In 2009-2010, I was elected and had the honor of serving as the President of the Orange County Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. This was a three-year commitment for what was the largest chapter in the United States (400+ members) during my tenure. Since childhood, I’ve been involved in service which has continued in my professional career.
I have held a variety of board seats for multiple years with NAWBO-OC, the Forum for Corporate Directors, and the Professional Coaches and Mentors Association in addition to having been active on committees in many organizations such as the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and AIDS Services Foundation.
The Personal Side
I enjoy traveling the world with my husband of 37 years and the love of my life, Doug Gifford, a professional photographer (www.douggiffordphoto.com). Together, we have been to over 60 countries and 43 states and have a passion for the people and cultures that each reflects. We derive tremendous joy being involved with both of our extended families and many friends as well as serving in our local and global communities.

Asim looks at coaching is a collaborative activity where the coach and coachee work together to move the coachee forward. The coaching relationship is built on mutual trust and is not for the coach to provide advice to fix the issue. This engagement is to focus on the person and how they are ‘showing up’ in the world that is causing the concern - What is it about the person that makes this challenge unique and then working with the person. The collaborative nature of this process makes coaching a worthwhile activity for both the coach and coachee where they both develop and learn new capabilities.
Asim is a NVW integral coach and holds International Coaching Federation (ICF) ACC credentials. He has Bachelors and Masters of Engineering degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and an Executive MBA degree from California State University. Asim has been at Intel Corporation for 19 years holding various engineering, people and program management roles.

I believe that the Story we create for ourselves is incredibly powerful , it pervades into how we think, feel and act. All our stories have very common themes that paint a rich canvas of lived experiences: Identity, Meaning, Sustenance and Inspiration. The shadow side of this applies too.
My path toward Coaching reads very much like Alice in Wonderland. My initial “jump down the rabbit hole” was as a Finance and Strategy graduate from University of Cape Town. I quickly realized however that I did not want to purely work with complex modeling but wanted to make an IMPACT.
I opened my first door of discovery by entering into the Management Consulting arena. I have journeyed through numerous consulting firms (from the Big Four to niche entrepreneurial firms) that allowed me to stretch my mind and see tangible change happen.
Through all this journeying however I found an ache, a whisper of “there is something missing” This came through for me (both personally and professionally) even more acutely through my observations in boardrooms. People inflicted hurt and pain and teams battled to yield results around the brilliant ‘head’ ideas. There was a disconnect between what was thought up to what materialised. This was my white rabbit… The chase of something incredible yet elusive that could make a change in how people, teams and communities could engage and work.
I have been involved in a variety of projects across Africa in both public and private sector. The breadth of engagements is large but with a focus on making people own their respective paths. Examples include:
•Articulating a target operating model
•Market entry strategy
•Developing and implementing a Leadership Development Program for a large power utility
•Developing and implementing a Performance Management system
•Leading top team alignment workshops
I faced a fork in my road in Wonderland, pursuing an MBA (as expected from a Consultant) or something different. I chose this “other” path, a path that deals acutely with the PERSON in front of me. I have not looked back since. I have completed Associate Coaching Course (ACC) and Professional Coaching Course (PCC) from Centre for Coaching at UCT and I am a certified Integral Coach (TM) Ventures West. I have also completed the Conscious Living Program (CLP) from the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies to name just a few of the training journeys I have been a part of.
I feel I have walked through many doors down my trip in Wonderland and have found a richer way of engaging the world. I am excited to take the journey with people and teams to see where we both can grow and change.

Life has kept you busy. And they told you: Staying busy is good! So, you chose a career, got yourself a degree from the best school you could afford, and put in the hours at work to build your career. You perhaps also invested a lot of time and money in important relationships, with significant others, children and family, etc. Now you are on top of the hill or you are on the way to get there, but there are voices in your head that say: I'm not going to last at this pace!or I don't feel complete!

I am passionate about potential. I love helping people be all they can be and I work with people to help them see what they can't yet see.
I have worked in the charity sector and managed people for over 14 years. I specialise in helping people cope with change whether that be personal or organisational. I work with curiosity and I expect to be surprised. Which I often am!
I work with people who are on the journey of development for its own sake – people who are driven by a love of the truth and a desire to know themselves deeply and live life fully. Our work together is a partnership of mutual authenticity, in service of what’s most important to you, your goals and your growth.
The work is highly experiential: by inquiring moment by moment into your felt experience, you learn to attune to the sensations in your body and the meaning that they carry. This process of Somatic Inquiry awakens and encourages a natural and organic tendency of human beings to heal and to become whole. You learn to welcome and trust your experience, allowing it to unfold into deeper self-knowledge, self-contact and self-expression. As self-trust expands, you start to relax, and the energy once used to hold back becomes available for living. You learn to get out of your own way and it becomes possible to be your best self.
Experiential work that includes the body leads to faster and more stable change because all of you is engaged. You don’t just gain insight, your way of being shifts. You contact parts of yourself – actual places in your body - that were previously numb or unavailable, and they become resources. You discover strengths and abilities you already have and learn to own them, increasing your resilience and self-confidence. At the same time longstanding, self-protective patterns may naturally drop away.
As you learn to open to your physical being you begin to experience the deep support that contact with the ground provides. It becomes easier to literally “stand up for yourself.” Feeling your back helps you to feel “backed”, making it easier to express opinions with confidence, accept input openly, and treat yourself and others with compassion and dignity. You may find that your head clears, and a natural wisdom emerges, and with it the ability to act in accordance with what is most important – to you, your relationships and to the world. Over time, you begin not just to be aware of your body, but to inhabit your body. This is experienced as a deep intimacy with yourself. When you are intimate with yourself, your relationships with others become more authentic.
These outcomes are what New Ventures West refers to as “the body of a coach” – a grounded presence that can contain and respond to all the experiences life may offer, and it means that my work especially effective for new or developing coaches. It enables us to meet others where they are and to mindfully hold space for whatever feelings and sensations arise.
Originally trained at New Ventures West as an Integral Coach, my work is also informed by training in Bodynamics, Hakomi, and the Aletheia School of Integral Unfoldment, where I coach individuals and groups. I am certified in Somatic Coaching by the Strozzi Institute and am a student of the Diamond Approach. This latter method of deep inquiry provides a spiritual foundation for my approach to human problems and aspirations. In addition to Integral and Somatic coaching, I offer coaching supervision for both individual coaches and groups.

These are not theoretical issues for me; I have walked the walk of these leaders in my work as a journalist, corporate executive and nonprofit leader. I have created new businesses, built creative teams and helped lead organizational change--while managing up, down and sideways. I have benefited from coaching and I have integrated coaching insights into my work and into my life as a wife, mother and friend.

How coaching works
I will partner with you to help you scan aspects of your work and life that you may never have thought to look at„from the profound to the practical. You will surface assumptions: What defines success for you? What are your strengths and challenges as a leader? How do you bring yourself to the teams you lead, the colleagues you collaborate with? You will take a close look at your everyday rhythms and rituals. How do you incorporate exercise, relaxation, eating and social habits into your daily life? How do these personal habits impact your work life, your management style, your productivity, your satisfaction?
You will develop awareness about how the varied parts of your life are connected. You will connect your personal development to organizational goals. You will reset everyday assumptions, habits and activities so that you can work and live with more capacity now and in the future. We will create a plan so that your daily life and work reflect the values, vocation and personal priorities you find important.
What you bring to coaching
You only need to bring an open mind and a commitment to slow down, ask questions, reflect on your experiences, strengths and challenges--and a willingness to try new options. I know how hard change can be, but I will create a safe place for you to explore this new territory. Together we will figure out a path that makes sense„for you.
I look forward to hearing from you.

In March 2015 Adenike A. Harris was certified as an Integral Coach from New Ventures West, School of Professional Coaches, in San Francisco, CA.
She also earned her Master’s Degree in Women's Studies from Georgia State University in May of 2011. In 2002, she graduated from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmittsburg, MD, with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
As an Integral Coach Adenike Harris has used her training and understanding to develop and create her own style of coaching. Adenike believes we are all born innately whole, as full spheres of humanness. As we grow and as we live life, different experiences put dents into our spheres and our wholeness. Some dents are deeper than others, creating a collapsed feeling. Some are just minor notches that limit your energy from functioning at its fullest potential. Our dents become a part of our daily routine and life. Our sphere is now uneven and out of balance.

I'm a writer, teacher, and coach who helps people find their calling and move into meaningful work they love.
I know from personal experience how hard it is to do. I tried out 10 jobs in my first 10 years of employment. I also wrestled with fear, doubt, depression, burnout, and trying hard to meet other people’s expectations before I learned how to listen to what the world was calling for from me.
What I learned from my journey is that we're all capable of finding the work that we're meant to do in the world with a little bit of help, no matter how anxious, lost, or frustrated we feel.
I'm a certified Integral coach and have an MBA from USF. I'm a former board member of ICF GA and have served as adjunct faculty at New Ventures West. My writing has been featured on websites including Tiny Buddha, elephant journal, and the Change Blog, and I've led workshops for organizations such as Emory University and the US Peace Corps.

It has taken Richard Levi more than 3 decades to become a Certified Integral Coach PCC, ICF: years in which he created his own dance and theatrical entertainment companies; manufactured and designed consumer products for the corporation he co-founded; developed productivity and marketing for other companies; worked with CEO’s, management, small businesses and individuals as a business, leadership and personal consultant; and managed theatrical investment groups for Broadway shows as well as producing and General Partnering on many theatrical productions on Broadway and tour. He brings his broad based professional experiences and his characteristic zeal for creation to his coaching and leadership work with others seeking higher levels of satisfaction and achievement.
Richard’s methodology is strongly influenced by the 3 essential ingredients of his entrepreneurial ventures: taking ownership; development and discernment; and a heightened sense of immediacy. These are the core competencies that consistently produce effective, well-honed ideas to be systematically implemented, creating a framework for success for individuals and companies alike.
Richard Levi became a certified Integral Coach (PCC and ICF certified), and adjunct faculty member at New Ventures West, and a coach and consultant who coaxes the entrepreneurial spirit in each of his clients. He is a facilitator of Hospice grief support groups, visits convalescent, children hospital and senior living facilities with his trained social therapy dog, and is a trained and certified mediator working with couples, juveniles and elected officials. He is also currently a board member for Partners in Sustainable Learning and building an in bed Hospice facility in Santa Rosa California.
His own “life lived on purpose” began as a professional dancer in Europe and New York City where he became an internationally celebrated choreographer, before turning to producing theatre for Broadway and national stages. He co-founded a thriving novelty and Halloween manufacturing company that utilized his sense of humor and theatricality perfectly, and served as its CEO in San Diego for 10 years, before selling the company and relocating to Sonoma County, California.
As owner of his own coaching practice, Richard brings these well learned organizational skills, his talent for implementing creative ideas and his proven business savvy to each client and business he coaches. Richard also works extensively in leadership development. Current clients include NASA, Kapor Capital, Medtronic, Arthur Gallagher, KB, Realm Cellars, Wharton College MBA program and the Haas Business School MBA program.
Richard recognizes the invaluable gifts he received from master coaches and educators along his own peripatetic path. His purpose now is to pass those gifts along to ignite the passion in others for doing good, authentic work in the world. A fulfilling life, he has learned, is our most important and gratifying creation.
