Claire’s executive coaching process is holistic in nature. She works with individuals in defining success in relation to career, family, and being a healthy growing individual. The client defines the areas they want to work on and develop outcomes that guide the coaching sessions. Her approach is to help the client leverage their strengths to overcome blocks to success. This might include evolving leadership development; managing change (organizational and personal); leveraging relationships; social and human capital; managing multiples priorities; “revitalizing” and continuing a sense of growth, despite where one is in relation to their career and life stage. Her mantra is “no one cares as much about your career as you” and “people don’t change unless they have a reason to change.”
