Every leader should have a trusted thought partner
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It’s helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” -Tim Galloway

Brooke's coaching has provided me with the tools (and, dare I say the permission?!), to dig deep inside of myself and see that I really do have the answers. I have learned to trust my instinct, be comfortable with discomfort, and grow!
Brooke and I have spent quite a bit of time unpacking the relationship between the Head of School and the Board of Trustees. As a brand new head of school, Brooke has provided me with the tools to develop this partnership. Both my board chair and I are quite pleased with the results! -Liz Baker, Head of School, GreenMount School
