Co-Active Coaching

Get the Most out of Life

Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. It begins by holding you as naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, and completely capable of finding your own answers to whatever challenges you face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen, and empower to elicit the skills and creativity you already possess, rather than instruct or advise. Co-Active coaching uses an array of proprietary tools developed by CTI that have been proven as the gold standard over the past 20 years of the coaching profession.



I offer a variety of coaching services to help you move past the obstacles in your life. I will help you identify your personal values, strengths, and abilities in support of your personal and professional goals. Contact me to see how I can help you develop different perspectives and achieve the outcomes you’re striving for.


Intent-Based Leadership®
Coaching and Training

Create leaders at every level

Jeff imagines a work place where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work—a place where everyone is a leader. In an Intent-Based Environment it is possible for:

  • People to feel valued and proud of being a part of something bigger than themselves

  • People to know the organization’s goals and thoughtfully contribute toward their accomplishment

  • People to feel inspired, by pushing control and decision-making down the organization people take responsibility and have the authority to rise to the occasion, even during times of change

  • The organization’s success be on the shoulders of all people and not simply the “leaders”

  • Leaders to be at all levels
