My Coaching Philosophies
- I interrupt anti-Blackness and White Supremacy Culture as a coach, it is incredibly important that my actions as a leader illustrate the freedom that I’m hoping to create with others. I will also work with you to interrupt these patterns in your own thinking and actions
- I want you to unleash the best version of you, free from the constraints placed on us from surviving a culture deeply entrenched in anti-Black racism and White Supremacy Culture
- This looks like radical honesty and calling people in, holding people accountable, and
prioritizing radical truth and empathy
- This also looks like interrogating and interrupting perfectionism, urgency culture, and fear
- I prioritize context; I want to strategically understand the why behind choices and decision and I want to help you feel comfortable asking these questions and remembering your devine choice to say no when you are not aligned to the decisions happening around you
- I prioritize accountability and disrupt infantilizing Whiteness as inherently innocent
- I believe that leaders need to understand the expectations and be supported to meet those expectations. I will help you get clear on your expectations and the expectations for your team. Clarity creates focus and action.
- I Center Emotional Intelligence and I will work with you to get comfortable expressing your emotions and learning how to navigate emotions as a leader
- I focus on creating the conditions for people to thrive and I will help you learn what you need in order to thrive.
