Frequently Asked Questions

What is your professional background?2018-09-10T12:36:33+00:00

My background ranges from start ups that go public to businesses in growth mode. I have 25 + years of corporate savvy ready to share with those ready to launch their own dream. I have consulted for a myriad of industries and influential corporate leaders. I love my work because I engage with the bright, the brave, and the believable.

Can I pay you at the end of the engagement?2018-09-03T17:46:08+00:00

Together we are committing to your success through the engagement process. Your commitment is expressed by your financial investment at the beginning of the engagement. My commitment is to provide all my 30+ years of knowledge, skills and abilities to help you make your dream a reality.

Have you ever turned down a potential client?2018-09-03T17:43:42+00:00

No, although quite often we are working less on a strategy plan and more on clarifying their dream. In those cases I may ask, “What makes you come alive? Now how do we actualize that?”

What about pricing beyond the initial $175.00?2018-09-03T17:42:29+00:00

The Engagement, and therefore the pricing is determined after the initial consult. It is based on the amount of time needed to actualize my client’s vision. It may involve just a short window of time ~ a few calls providing coaching to move beyond a barrier.  Or I may work with the client through an extended period after which they step out in their own creative space for some time, but may return at various intervals for additional coaching and support. There is often an ebb and flow to the working arrangement.  Together we determine the best course of action.

What happens once I book my initial consultation?2018-08-31T00:20:28+00:00

From working with Creative Geniuses, I have created three fun, insightful ways to explore your Genius.

The Genius Survey you can take from the website. The other two you receive in advance of our initial call.  A conversation around this information helps us quickly move forward to your goals.

One is the simple Genius Survey of 7 questions. The Genius Assessment contains 12 qualities and characteristics I feel are required to be successful. The Genius Profile identifies strengths and potential limitations in preparing for success.

Through email we schedule our initial consult and explore your Next BIG Thing!

 

Have you ever fired a client?2018-08-28T03:37:22+00:00

No, I have never found it necessary to fire a client. I work with bright, ambitious people who are clear on expectations, their’s and mine.

How do you handle confidentiality?2018-08-28T03:26:03+00:00

First, please read my Privacy Policy found at the bottom of each web page.

Secondly, some of my clients are still involved in work, relationships and environments that if knowledge of their Next BIG Thing were exposed could negatively impact their forward progress. Therefore clients determine the level of privacy they need and I adhere to their wishes.

Some of my client engagements involve how to manage their transition from one ‘life’ to their new world with grace and integrity.

How would you describe your average client?2018-08-28T03:05:57+00:00

None of my clients are average! They are the bright, brave and believable who have come alive to do something BIG in and for the world. They are at a transformational place in their lives and recognize it is time for their Next BIG Thing!

If I make this investment, are there any guarantees?2018-08-28T02:33:31+00:00

I wish there were guarantees in all things! But there are not. Beautiful creative geniuses understand this. However, a guarantee I do offer is that I will work as hard as you do to make your vision a reality.

How does strategic coaching differ from life coaching?2018-08-28T02:19:46+00:00

Working with me as your Strategic Coach, allows us to focus on specific outcomes regarding a personal ‘venture’.  Our goal is to take action on your idea, accomplish your goal, and launch your vision. Our work together includes personal accountability and professional enrichment necessary for your success. Life coaching focuses on personal reflection, past or present, to generally live life more fully.

Can I talk to a previous client?2018-08-28T02:07:20+00:00

Absolutely! Contact us and we can make that happen.

Do you offer payment plans for long term engagements?2018-08-28T02:05:12+00:00

I work with people and their budgets as much as possible for long term engagements.

Do you work with teams?2018-08-28T02:02:24+00:00

I do work with teams that are working towards the same vision. It’s very energizing and powerful when all players are equally passionate about achieving that Next BIG Thing!

If you have additional questions you can send me a message.

As Your Strategic Coach, I am committed to your success and will provide ideas, insight and guidance on the journey to the Next BIG Thing for YOU. I Can NOT however guarantee your success. Just as a coach of a great athlete cannot promise them a victory nor can I promise you success. In the truest sense, it is up to you to finish the race. If you find that you no longer want to work together to accomplish that end, you are free at any time to stop.
