One-on-One Personal Coaching 

Description:  Confidential, one-to-one coaching with Andrea Lewis that is typical 1.5 hrs per week.

Approach:  In-person, via Zoom platform or over the phone.

Process:  Every client has a unique story and life experiences that frame how we see and make sense of the world. My coaching style identifies patterns that hold people back from attaining their goals and incorporates ones that are more conducive to attaining goals and living a flourishing life.  For instance, a client may want closer relationships in life. Coaching will help identify what’s holding that goal back and then offer tools and strategies that are more productive.

Success Story:  “Mary” called me to discuss wanting to quit her job and find something that was more challenging and inspiring.  In short, she felt uninspired in life. Through her coaching program, she realized that she’d always opted for the easiest path in life – and this led her to a personal and professional life that was easy, but not challenging or inspiring.  Through one-on-one personal coaching, she learned new ways of thinking and implemented tools to increase communication, ambition and curiosity in both her marriage and work life.  

 

One-on-One Executive Coaching

  • Creating mission and vision
  • Developing high potential and high performance employees
  • Leadership training
  • Addressing conflict with employees and teams
  • Creating/changing culture 

Approach:  In-person, via Zoom platform or over the phone. 

Process: Through a series of in-depth and confidential discussions with senior leaders, Coach Andrea listens and identifies values.  She leads working sessions with key leaders and staff to reflect and write a mission and vision statement that aligns with their core values.  Clients receive a list of recommendations for applying the mission and values into the company’s culture. 

Success Story.  A local public service and environmental firm had an annual service award dinner where employees were recognized for achieving company benchmarks.  Although the company loved the idea of hosting the annual event, they recognized that their current celebration format was unstructured and outdated.  Through executive coaching, we provided presentation training and taught leaders how to write and deliver congratulatory speeches. We even worked to review and update the format of the annual awards banquet.   Today, they have a service award dinner that more closely aligns with their company values, more effectively appreciates their staff and creates a more enjoyable experience.
