Are you curious about the art and science of coaching?

I try to curate the best information I can find from around the web, in books, on the practice fields and in the arenas and include it on The Coaching Conversation.

We also write original content about coaching, performance and teams, but also about our careers, finance and health. In addition, you will find reviews of books, films and courses in order to point you to helpful resources.

About Me:

Coaching has been my job and my career for much of the past thirty years.

Then:

I was a very good athlete (UNC, national team), a career coach at multiple levels, as well as leading professional front offices and working as a business consultant.  I have won awards and championships (pro and college) as a coach (pro) and as an athlete (college).

Like any coach with a lengthy career I have also endured difficult seasons (pro and college) and started programs (pro and college).

I stepped off the field as a head coach. I still coach if someone needs an assistant or wants some help, but I am just now entering the second half and I want to broaden my life experiences.

Now: 

I coach coaches, leaders and any individual athlete/performer who wants to get to the next level. In addition, I give workshops on team work with businesses and sports teams.

I also take on projects that interest me with people I respect.  This is includes consulting on strategy with coaches or small businesses, consulting on team building, writing and speaking about more than just coaching.

Please get in touch if you are interested or need some help. Info at the coachingconversati0n dot c0m.

Philosophy:

I believe we should be committed to a life time of learning. That includes the idea that we need to challenge many of the beliefs we started with or got adamant about along the way.  At the same time we need to commit to our core values, coach from an authentic place, and listen for the advice and new ideas that resonate with our values and our authentic self.

It’s always a balance between knowing where we stand and opening up to new ideas.

You can contact me at info at thecoachingc0nversation d0t c0m if you want to discuss the art and science of coaching or if you are interested in help with a project.

I look forward to hearing from you.
