What is Coaching?
Wendy believes that clients are healthy, whole, and capable of solving their own problems. Coaching creates guided space for clients to reflect, engage, visualize, plan and take action for creating a desired future. In the coaching process, perspectives and behavior of clients change through hearing their own processing, and through identifying and choosing alternatives to habitual patterns or responses. Wendy’s clients tend to be seeking transformative change and to be experiencing transition in their lives.

How Wendy is unique
Wendy integrates several complementary approaches that provide personalized, holistic coaching rather than a “coaching toolkit”. These techniques include: asset-based coaching using strengths and inquiry to uncover and mobilize “the best of what is true about you”; Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) processes that deepen results and movement towards desired behaviors; Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, a work style tool, to enhance communication, learning, healthy development and teamwork; Transformative Learning which shifts language to change the way one thinks and works; William Bridges Transition Training, & Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Principles which outline transition/healing stages; the power of one’s own stories to work with issues of diversity: culture, gender, class and one’s unique life journey; and achieving congruency through alignment of the physical, mental and spiritual, including the Emotion Code which releases trapped emotions. Wendy’s coaching reflects the current practices of inclusive leadership helping clients identify, create and engage culturally-responsive practices. Wendy has co-authored a book on engaging people in group work, Teamwork Tools, as well as articles on MBTI/culture, and leadership and human development.

“I can see that I have improved in a number of areas—more aware and observant, more experienced in dealing with staff. Have also started a regular program of exercise, due to encouragement from Wendy. I am happier and more confident, despite some of the things that have occurred in the meantime. I have been able to deal with crises and still stay calm.” Lynette
