will take your peak performance to the next level of excellence and mastery.
My coaching is founded on the belief that people want to cultivate what is best within themselves and others, to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives and to pursue excellence and mastery.
The Goal: Tip of the Stem.
We seek to be “Tip of the Stem” beings. We all desire to be and give our best. The only way to do that is to be committed to the Growth Curve–the Tip of the Stem–the part of the plant that is growing.
I provide important insights based on proven principles from positive psychology. I promise to share with you everything I know from research, Harvard courses, and personal experience.
The Foundational Pillars
We are Wholistic Being
Our professional and personal lives intersect.
Personal struggles influence us professionally and professional struggles influence us personally. We are wholistic beings.
Compartmentalizing may help you get through difficult places, but emotional health is about being a fully integrated being.
We Need Smart and Heart.
The philosophy of Breakthrough Coaching is to help you blend Smart and Heart™ for optimal results in your life, your niche, and your business. Over and over, research bears out that Smart and Heart™ is the winning combination. With that in mind, I seek to share knowledge that is informational as well as transformational.
To call on a sports analogy, if you have a very motivating coach who does not know technique, strategy, or what it takes to win, the motivation will ring hollow. On the other hand, if you have a smart tactical coach who doesn’t have the heart to create loyalty, drive, and passion in his/her players, all the techniques in the world don’t matter.
Art and science. The Greats got it right. Heinrich von Schlegel, the German philosopher, said that “Every art should become science and every science should become art.” Edison talked about inspiration and perspiration. Daniel Goldman found that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is as important for success as IQ. (EQ being about people skills and self-management.) Aristotle said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
So, we are on this journey together to use your Smart and Heart™ to make a difference in this world using your knowledge, your talents, and your passion.
We Need PsychLogic.
PsychLogic is understanding that what doesn’t make sense logically, often makes sense psychologically. Psychologically, all behavior is purposeful and all behavior is based on a belief system. Identifying these purposes and beliefs helps facilitate “unstuckness.” (I have permission from Webster to invent words if I want to.) 😉
Using PsychLogic as a strategic technique, I have often been able to help clients get unstuck. It is often the missing piece that explains self-defeating behavior. It’s great to be growing, but we’re human and sometimes we get very stuck. PsychLogic is the way out of those stuck places. I have very specific coaching exercises that can transform your stuck places.
