Performance By Design

Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it... live your way into the answer.

-Rainer Maria Rilke

You have a unique place in the world. It's time to fully occupy it.

Perhaps what you've always done is no longer working. You've taken on new work that you don't understand... You're preparing for a promotion... You're managing a new team.

Perhaps you feel you are too busy to create a future of potential for yourself. You may be running from one meeting to another. Or your children may think of the upcoming addition to your family as the latest "deliverable".

Through coaching, Performing By Design helps you:

  • Gain vision into your existing ways of doing things, reflecting on what's helping and hindering you from being your absolute best. Where it's appropriate, we use assessment tools or interviews to gather data.
  • Substitute new ways. Move from reaction to action. Break through assumptions and habits that limit you. Build your capacity to perform, through reflection and then action. Achieve tangible, measurable results.
  • Recognize what's fundamental-uncover and the unique purpose, values, strengths that are already resident in you.
  • Widen your perspective on choices available to you. Do things that scare you-step out of the box in order to achieve stretch-level excellence. Innovate.

The coaching relationship is the venue in which this all occurs-an environment of mutual trust, respect, and freedom to say what each person means. Kathy's work is grounded in theory and years of practice in the corporate and nonprofit sectors helping human performance happen. She's compassionate but not fluffy, direct and intuitive. Her focus is not just on making people more competent but also on tapping their inner store of courage and patience with self.
