Leadership Coach/Organizational Development
Whether coaching to support Leadership Development or Team Performance, in the public or private sector, Joel’s ability to see individuals’ learning edges uniquely serves him toward diagnosing individual and organizational needs and creating successful outcomes.
Joel attributes client success to the foundational belief that self-awareness and awareness of others (Emotional Intelligence ‘EI’) is the starting point to all progress. Paired with EI, his developmental approach to reasoning, helps his clients think in more complex, systemic, strategic, and interdependent ways. He assists his clients in learning to think more objectively, and increase the number of perspectives they can hold simultaneously, without letting go of their own or making any of them wrong or bad.
If you’d like to chat about your situation, email some times you’re available for a 30 min. consult call.
Some of my “Life” clients are struggling through changes, re-starting their lives after divorces, changes in their employment or they’re just not satisfied where they are in life, believing there can be a lot more.
If you struggle with attaining goals, maybe you’re not so sure about your goals in the first place? Coaching, with a developmental foundation, helps you to see their world differently.
And that begins with asking questions that challenges their stories… their assumptions. For example, when you’re asked, “What do I believe and how could I be wrong,” you learn to become more objective and see yourself in a more clinical vs. emotional light.
As a coach, I am tasked with helping you discover and reach your goals - along with opening you up to the opportunity of lifelong, consistent growth.
Generally, coaching is about defining, setting, achieving goals and discovering and evolving the behaviors you’ll need to do so. By listening, asking questions and challenging assumptions, I’ll help you develop accountability, structure and commitment.
It’s also an opportunity for cognitive, moral and social development.
When I listen to you, it’s not just about the content of what you are saying, it's also about how you make sense of the world. I listen to learn about how you decipher the world.
A fellow coach/teacher of mine shared, “Development is not a race to the finish line. It is the journey of our lives. The way we come to see and re-see the world around us.”
As I work with clients to achieve goals, I also strive to help them discover how their connected to systems around them, how to see multiple perspectives and how to discover their own growth edges so that they may continually, “Come to see and re-see the world around them.” And this begins with self-compassion, or mindfulness - the ability to focus on the present and be non-judgmental about your feelings, thoughts and sensations... and the acceptance of your own challenges with kindness and understanding.
