She also draws on her intuition with quick and witty “zaps-of-truth” that move mountains of resistance in seconds.
“I have worked as a coach and consultant in the domestic and international business community for over 30 years. After 20 years as an Executive Director, I started a full-time coaching business to work with newly emerging technology companies. This was a time of great change and innovation and as a coach, I did not have answers for my clients but more importantly, I had powerful questions. I would inquire about their purpose and help them to determine what they wanted to create, what resources they needed and how they would enroll others in their vision.”
After 15 years of private coaching and many requests from individuals with the desire to become a professional coach, she began to train and certify coaches in the United States in 2002. Barbara has helped pioneer the coaching profession and is a strong advocate for the value of professional coaches. She is a Master Coach with over 7,000 hours spent in individual coaching sessions. She has trained more than 10,000 people on the core principles of effective leadership and certified over 1,000 coaches internationally. She has coached business professionals involved in early-stage development as well as those managing major change initiatives. She assists clients in designing strategies to achieve their business imperatives and coaches them to communicate in a manner that assures clarity and alignment. Through her ability to coach strategically, she has helped many companies grow from start-ups to publicly-held and internationally-recognized organizations.
