Our Vision

Our vision is to see you come alive to what gives you joy and purpose.

To help you utilise your gifts to make a unique impact.


We’ll help you find that sweet spot where “your greatest joy and the world’s greatest needs meet.”  We're here to bring postures of curiosity and warmth, trusting your internal strength and wisdom to show a good way forward. 

Our Vision/About Us

Our Approach

We offer three approaches to coaching that are tailored to meet your needs:


1. Solution-focused Coaching – Through focused 1:1 conversations, we dig into a pressing issue or perennial challenge in order to find the point of stuckness so that you can move past it into a thriving life.

2. Personality and gift assessments – We are certified Birkman, leadership GRIP, and TRAC assessors. We can also coach you through your Enneagram, Strengthsfinder, and Myers-Briggs results. Through these assessments, we help you identify what makes you "you" and how your unique gifts contribute to relationship, work, and more.  

3. Team-Building and Group Coaching – We design custom resources to help your team grow and thrive!

Our Approach

"Our life is to be a thing of truth and also a thing of beauty
in the midst of a lost and despairing world."
