Coaching for Individuals

man on computerDespite years of training in their disciplines and being the foremost experts in their areas of research, most faculty members receive limited support in how to navigate the multiple demands of academic life.

In coaching we support you to achieve your professional goals without sacrificing your well-being along the way. Just as athletic coaches work with highly skilled people who want to perform at the top of their game, we work with people who are creative, resourceful, and whole, but who want something more.

Whether you have ambitious aspirations to conduct field-defining research, lead your school into a new era, or impact society – or you just want to get promoted without giving up all semblance of a personal life, your coach will provide you with the support and structure to reflect, plan, and take action to move your objectives from vision to reality.
