Most importantly, Rick begins where his clients are at and engages them using powerful questions so that they may realize solutions, actions or outcomes for themselves. He listens deeply, provides space for reflection and challenges his clients all in service of their transformation or goal achievement.

Team Coaching

Often interspersed with timely and relevant leadership topics, concepts or ‘learning nuggets’, team coaching is in the moment inquiry and guidance which helps to enable the team or group to become unstuck – to identify the opportunity or remove the potential barrier that may be right in front of it. The team or group may begin with a concept in mind, such as team trust, or the topic can be generated in the moment to target what is happening right here and now. Another context within which team coaching is of benefit occurs when specific changes or challenges have caused the team some unrest or disruption. Using personal or team behavioural diagnostics, such as those centred around emotional intelligence or leadership styles, may work to significantly inform and guide the team to sustainable success. Team coaching harnesses productive conflict and moves the group toward innovation and creativity.

Individual Leader/Executive Coaching

We have all either experienced first-hand, or have heard of, the power of one-on-one coaching. Rick calls upon his diverse and unique coaching learning, training and education in each client experience and believes that anyone can benefit from engaging with a coach to put in place his or her own adaptive action. In fact, individual coaching often leads to amazing new insights and personal transformation. When individuals become unstuck and are supported through coaching to live into their possibility, amazing things can happen, both personally and professionally.

Rick helped me to immerse in self-awareness learning and encourage me to stay in the learning moment long enough to make the connections needed to get the profound change I sought. He has always remained curious about the challenges I bring to him for coaching and the last couple of years together have seen a wonderful trail of learning and growing form. I hope to always have the guidance of a great coach like Rick to help with my leadership, my career and just to make sense of everyday life.
