Individual Leadership Coaching

“When I first started coaching I was a mess, my work was a mess. I was feeling trapped in my job, feeling I had to stay in a role that no longer fit me. The more I learned about self-differentiation and overfunctioning–and the more I practiced self-compassion–the more I became able to catch my triggers before they would fire so that I could maintain a calm presence. Now the mess has cleared, things are calm and working well at the Center, and I am a much happier person. I know now that I am in the right job, and I love my work again.”

Rev. Molly Cameron, Founder and Senior Minister / Columbus Center for Spiritual Living

“I have found Amy a reflective and inquisitive coach, one that listens profoundly and then provokes thoughts with you through a pertinent question. I would recommend Amy as a coach and facilitator to anyone ready to learn and grow.”

– Sébastien Terral, Vice President & Engagement Leader, Senn Delaney, a Heidrick & Struggles company,  Paris, France.

I interview one of my clients, Michael Brooks, who describes his experience and results from coaching.

Leadership Team Coaching

“Before Amy worked with our leadership, I felt under constant fire. What I wanted more than anything was for everyone to just relax and trust me, to know that I was going to handle it all. After the Healthy Leadership Systems sessions with the whole leadership team, and my own insights into self-differentiation and overfunctioning, the team started leaning into one another in new ways. I sensed a renewed sense of ownership that was refreshing. Several people stepped up in bigger ways, taking charge of situations and projects more than they ever had before. I became better able to allow others to grow. It feels like a fresh canvas — freeing, creative, and innovative. We are learning how to be leaders, together.”

Rev. Molly Cameron, Founder and Senior Minister / Columbus Center for Spiritual Living

“I participated in the workshop as an emerging leader and was blown away by the usefulness of systems thinking! Systems thinking is extremely helpful in working with organizations and communities who want to engage in change. I regularly use what I learned about relationship dynamics and how I contribute to them in all sorts of situations and positions since then especially in my consulting work with various organizations.”

– Christine Raffaele, Esq., C.C.M., Consultant

“Amy provided a workshop for leaders of the congregation at our church. I was a Board and Strategic Planning Committee member at this time, and wanted to improve both my leadership and listening skills. She provided a comfortable, inclusive environment for learning, and touched upon how we, as a congregation, can better fulfill our mission statement. She taught that fulfillment of both church mission and the desire to lead is done through careful listening, sharing, and respect. I thoroughly enjoyed the time invested and walked away with information I use daily at church and in my professional life. I continue to serve the church in other leadership roles, applying the knowledge gained from this experience.”

– Dennis A. Rankin, Regulatory Affairs Manager Ashland Speciality Ingredients G.P.

John Testimonials

“I attended Amy’s workshop as I was contemplating accepting a position on our church’s Board. The questions, reading, discussions and listening that occurred helped excite and prepare me to join the Board and eventually become the Board Chair. I went from lacking self-confidence to be on the Board to thoroughly enjoying my years doing important work with and for our congregation. I specifically remember our stories related to how we as a congregation struggle with injustice and with perceived wrongdoings. Amy reminded us to notice our feelings and possible anxiety these stories brought up and helped us practice embracing our emotional responses without letting those feeling distract us from our listening.”

“I have never been a fan of group leadership training sessions, but I have to say that Amy did an outstanding job of setting up meaningful dialogue and providing a lot of useful information. I can use the take-aways from our training in my leadership positions at work, at my volunteer activities, and even at home!”
