“I had wanted to do this for a long time, but I needed support to move from thinking into action.” - A coaching client




Contact Rena Seltzer...Just as an athletic coach supports athletes to achieve their peak performance in their chosen sport, a personal and professional coach empowers her clients to reach their most important personal and professional goals.

I support you to:

  • Envision where you want to be in six months, a year, and five-to-ten years.
  • Break your goals down into manageable steps
  • Manage doubts and seize opportunities along the way
  • Celebrate the achievement of your goals

I specialize in work with:

  • Academics
  • Physicians
  • Other professional leaders and aspiring leaders

Meeting by telephone with e-mail support, I provide consultation to clients across the country and around the globe. Scrolling through my web site will give you a better understanding of individual and group coaching, as well as the workshops and presentations I offer. However, the best way to get a sense of how coaching will help you to achieve your goals is to experience a coaching session.

I invite you to set up a free telephone consultation to discuss what you are up against and how coaching can help. I look forward to hearing from you.
