Positive Changes Coach
Positive Changes Coaching offer a wide range of services to a wide range of people.
I am a little different from some Life and Leadership Coaches in that I don't have or particularly want a "niche." I can say with clarity though, that I work with smart, creative, healthy people who are very busy and highly driven to achieve their dreams and goals. They want to make a difference in the world ...
The people I serve want to know themselves at a deeper level, want to achieve balance and harmony in their life, they want to have less stress and overwhelm, they want to do what they were created to do, and they don't want to give up income, relationships, or fun to do it. I help them do just that!
I work within the Positive Psychology model of Coaching, use the John
Maxwell Personal Growth and Leadership Learning Systems, and reflective
online journaling. I offer emprically validated assessments to help you
zero in on what is right about you and your life. I deeply believe that you can
use your best to make you better and that you can build on what is
right and what is going well in your life to make the challenges and
blocks you face that much easier to overcome.
Lens of Life, Leadership, and Attitude
The Lens On Life Leadership and Attitude is foundational to Positive Changes Coaching programs. You start by working with me to develop a strong awareness of what works
in your life (and what doesn't). That means developing a strong
awarness of your character strengths, your life values, your many
interests and passions, and your resources. Together we look at how you
lead yourself and others through life by focuing a Lens on your Life,
Leadership and Attitudes.It starts with 2 important assessments designed clarify for you what works in your life. Other important assessments are available depending upon your needs.
- The Via Survey of Character Strengths:
What surprises some people is that their Character Strengths do NOT indicate their talents or their skills and abilities! Talent refers to how well people DO something.
Character is that part of you that CARES about what you are doing, and to WHO your ARE at your core. Character strengths refers to what satisfies and energizes you ... what enables you to actually thrive when you make use of your talents.
This is an online assessment that includes a full report with information about all 24 or your Character Strengths with special emphasis and guidance on making the most of your top 5 to 7 strengths.
- The Energy Leadership Index: The Energy Leadership Index is a unique assessment that enables leaders to hold up that lens and get a good look at their perceptions, their attitudes, thinking, and behavior.
It is a powerful too that shpws you how you are getting in your own way. I call that your "Weapons of Self-Destruction" ~ the negative, destructive energy of your limiting beliefes and thinking patterns that prevent you from being and doing what you are created to be and do! It also shows you where your positive and constructive energy lies so that you can build on that!
Like the Via Survey of Character Strengths, this is an online assessment. It includes a full report of your results and a 1-1 debriefing from me, a Certified Energy Leadership Professional and Master Practitioner.
- The Maxwell Leadership Assessment Tool:
Max Dupree said “the first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.” The John Maxwell 360 leadership assessment tool is designed to help you to define the reality of where you are on the 5 Levels of
It reveals where you are strong so you can build on those areas and also points out areas that need improvements. This tool measures 64 attributes that help leaders have success at each of the 5 Levels of Leadership regardless of whether the person is a solo-prenuer, a CEO, a parent or teacher, or a community volunteer.
While you can take this assessment without a coach, as a certified John Maxwell Coach and Trainer, I will help provide a debrief that will not only help you clarify the results for yourself, but will help you take substantive steps for positive change in how you lead yourself and others.

- The weekly, coaching calls focus on the outcomes you choose to achieve:
The agenda is entirely up to you and varies as greatly as one person
varies from another. When you first start life coaching services, topics
usually include your discovering and labeling core values and
strengths, your life purpose and goals, dealing with change and any or
all of the elements of your wheel of life.
- Life coaching is quite affordable and sometimes
even more effective in groups than one-on-one. Group coaching happens on
face-to-face or via teleconference and online.
- Group coaching packages
always include a powerful journaling component that provides a
collaborative, supportive environment for participants' personal growth.
