I bring a compassionate challenge to all my clients and seek to help them find their best selves in the domains of body, emotion, spirit, and thought. Leadership is an internal journey, so cultivating greater awareness and powerful choices is instrumental to finding your way forward.
Colin deeply believes in lives worth living, leaders worth following, and organizations worth being a part of, all of which cultivate communities and a world worth living in. He brings his unique blend of compassionate challenge, deep insight, and presence to all his clients. He is known for being wickedly intuitive, insightful, direct when appropriate, and always supportive. Many clients have referred to him as a “not kidding around coach,” and leaders have often chosen him to partner with because they knew they would be challenged and supported in service of their goals and mission.
After a 20+ year career in HR leadership in the software, technology, consulting, and retail spaces, in January 2014, Colin committed to focusing full-time on partnering with individuals, managers, executives, teams, and organizations to identify what success looks like and help them move forward to achieving that success – at work and in life. His areas of focus are leadership, life and career coaching, leadership and management development programs and training, design and facilitation of teambuilding and planning off-sites, and team, culture, and organizational development. He is a sought-after speaker, trainer, and workshop facilitator on collaborative communication, personal transformation, personal leadership, courageous conversations, resilience, emotional and relational capability, and many other topics.
