I am a productivity coach who specializes in working with creatives, entrepreneurs, managers and academics.

In other words,  professionals whose work environments demand a high level of self-direction, agility and creativity. I help my clients cultivate laser-like focus so that they can get things done.

My clients finally finish their book manuscripts. They submit those articles they’ve been working on for months, if not years. They get tenure. They finish their films. They submit their illustrations. They expand their businesses.  They revamp their organizations.

And as they  work through this process they become expert problem solvers, agile thinkers, leaders in their fields—confident in their ability to make decisions and act on them in a timely and effective fashion.

I draw on design thinking and other cutting-edge tools to help my clients finally get where they’ve long wanted to go.

Working with me is meant to fit into your busy life, not add to its chaos.
 


THE PROCESS

You talk. I listen. That’s how it starts.

Listening is basic to how we interact with each other as human beings, but for many people it’s a stalking horse for talking themselves.

When I listen it’s to hear you, to hear your story, to learn how and what you think, and to get to the bottom of what you want. This is at the heart of what I do. I am a skilled and professional listener.

Of course all listening and no talk makes Jane a dull girl. Along the way,  I’ll gently ask you incisive questions to discover your unique obstacles and what countervailing strengths you already possess. From there I’ll draw on the most cutting-edge data on design thinking, goal setting and habit formation, and create a plan for you.

This plan is based on what’s important and possible for you. This is vital to note. We’re focusing on real goals with achievable outcomes. Part of what I’ll help you do is determine what’s possible given your strengths and weaknesses, measure the obstacles and opportunities at hand, and forge ahead in practical ways to achieve real results.

We’ll work hard together until you succeed. Debriefing, reviewing, reassessing, adjusting, and repeating and repeating until success is at hand. This kind of interactive and analytical method leads to results. This is where you grow and learn. 

How does it work?

As my private client the entire suite of my experience and skillset will be at your service on an ongoing basis. My academic rigor will be fully evident in these sessions, with worksheets distributed in advance and assessments made in review for every meeting. I will also, upon request, make and provide recordings of our sessions with notes on resources and tips that dovetail with the real strategies we build together.

I will meet with you over Skype, FaceTime, phone or in person. Each session lasts 45 minutes.

You can sign up for a single session or meet with me on a regular basis.

This is the most personal and impactful way to align.  With this level of intimate interaction we can tackle any size problem or obstacle in your personal or professional life, and your successes will be found in aggregation of these pointed multivarious alignments.
