Hi, I'm Terri Babers, a Life and Leadership Coach and Trainer in Fairbanks Alaska. I'm also a Mediator, a Trainer, and just resigned from teaching public speaking at UAF as Adjunct Faculty ... and I'm a mother and a daughter, a grandmother, a friend, and a committed community member.
I call myself and this website Positive-Changes-Coach because as a Leadership and Life Coach, I work with people who want to make a difference in the world. They are motivated to move in positive ways through changes and transitions in their life. With coaching help, people can lead themselves to make those changes in their lives more easily, with a greater sense of well-being, and fulfillment.
probably visited my "About" page because you're curious about who I am,
my qualifications as a Life and Leadership Coach and a Trainer, and why
you should take the time to read what I have to say. Well, her you go!
First, I'll explain what a "sense of well-being and fulfillment" means to me. It means ...

use amazing materials from the John Maxwell Leadership program along with proven strategies from the science of well-being. Also, the
power of reflection and personal journaling is an amazing way I help people "... feel

Being a life and leadership coach is great for lots of reasons. Being a life coach lets me help people connect with their passions, goals, and dreams. That usually means helping them get to know their "who," and to trust their own inner expert .... I love doing that, and I'm good at it.
Being a Life Coach and a Leadership Coach gives me the opportunity to help people generate ideas, and recognize the value of those ideas, and to follow through on some of them!
And one thing I'm passionate about is ideas!
Being a life coach is a fantastic profession for me because I'm a flaming extrovert and get a lot of my energy from being around a variety of people and listening to all kinds of ideas. Coaching allows me to get to know people with all kinds of possibilities. Don't get the wrong idea ..... introverts make great coaches too, they just find a different satisfaction in being a life coach.
Formal Coach Training I hold a Masters degree in Professional
Communication from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and care deeply
about learning and higher education. So I selected the Institute for
Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), a 400-hour intensive, and
highly respected coach training program with roots in the empirical
research foundation from the Science of Wellbeing: Positive Psychology,
Neuro Linguistic Programing, and the Energetic Coaching Process. I
am a Certified Professional Life and Leadership Coach, a Career and
Professional Development Coach, Life Potentials Practitioner and Energy
Leadership Index Master Practitioner.
And most recently, I'm honored to be an Independant Certified John Maxwell Team Coach, Trainer, and Speaker.
