Strengthen your capacity to lead in complex times

Today’s complex world is calling on us all to lead with a new kind of courage and skill, one that requires us to work together differently and challenge the way we've done things in the past - all the while continuing to reach our goals. One proven tool for developing these skills is coaching, a confidential, one-on-one relationship that helps you identify and take action toward personal and professional change.  

Coaching helps you:

- Increase your clarity and focus on what matters most 

- Leverage your existing strengths and those of others

- Have better conversations

- Align your intention with your impact

- Develop stronger collaborations

- Explore future possibilities

- Take action 

"What I found through the personal/professional coaching program was not the new me, but the real me - the person and leader who I have always been, but sometimes held back for one reason or another.  Lucille's coaching style and gift for listening and clarifying has provided me with tools that are helping me get out of my own way of achieving my own true potential both at work and in life.”
-Brian Beauchamp, TART Trails
