WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT WORKING WITH WHITNEY:
Tara, Director of Campus Dining:
"During my time as a new director in college and university food service, I would not have been as effective a leader without Whitney’s deeply present listening, understanding, and collaborative coaching approach. Working with Whitney has been one of the best decisions I've made.
She asked hard questions that stretched my thinking, perspective, and pushed me out of my comfort zone. Whitney challenged me to do the thing I least wanted to do at times but surely the thing that needed to be done.
Through evidenced-based study, Whitney provided thoughtful reflections as I faced situational hardship. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my tendencies, and my strengths and weaknesses through working with Whitney.
Her presence during this time in my life helped me formalize the leader I am; without her guidance and care for my wellbeing and success I would not be where I am today, one year in, still learning and thriving at the same time."
Lauren, Fitness Professional
"Whitney’s coaching has brought to light a self that I am proud of, that I respect, and that I can believe in. Whitney teaches me that trusting the best in me can be the default, not the exception. And she’s taught me what that trust looks like on a day-to-day basis.
Over and over again, Whitney’s coaching teaches me to choose—and put my trust in—the best of me."
Ashlee, Business Owner
"Coaching helped pull me out of a standstill. I’ve really improved upon my ability to show up as my best self consistently since I started working with Whitney, and that feels so good."
Earl, Director for Staff Experience and Culture
"Coaching helped me get unstuck. Whitney did a masterful job of asking powerful questions, and championed me, which helped me arrive where I needed to. She provided both a mix of challenge and support which enabled me to get out of my comfort zone and get into action."
Outside the five live 60-minute coaching sessions, this program requires devoted time and attention to completing homework assignments. Reflection and study between sessions is an essential part of learning and building a strong leadership foundation. Live sessions are typically scheduled every three weeks with 1-2 hours of homework in between.
Homework modalities can vary from journal prompt completion, daily actions to take, people to interview, articles to read, etc. Sessions and homework material are loaded a little more heavily in the beginning than towards the end.
