Welcome

My work focuses on helping you lead a life of your own conscious design. I have embraced the concept of Collaborative Self-Leadership (CSL) in creating a personal structure focusing on your uniqueness and passion. I believe CSL, and it’s evolution toward the ability to lead others from the inside out, is the future of fulfilling lifework. I have created an elegantly simple, yet highly effective model I work with entitled the CSL Path. The CSL Path focuses on the three areas of Potential, Purpose and Performance.

In over 20 years of coaching I have seen these three area’s emerge over and over as the critical success factors in leading a fulfilling sense of our life’s work. As we are all intimately aware the workplace is changing radically and quickly. I feel strongly that just a good education is no longer a guarantee of success. I believe we will redefine success oriented toward our own self-actualization and continuous personal growth. Organizations today simply don’t have the time and resources to direct employee development at the pace the workplace and world is transforming.

Terry's Story

Every personal story is one that comes from the perception of the one who has lived it. It doesn’t make it always true, it’s a perception based on personal beliefs and level of awareness. I do know I had a challenging early life as most of us did. I also know I chose to explore my perception of that early conditioning, wounding and trauma to channel that into empathy and compassion for the human condition. I live as though I chose all of my experiences to grow into who I am today. It’s not easy to be a Human Being, we can all be honest about that. It’s a challenge to be in the world but not of it, because you have to be enough in it to evolve through and beyond it. Often our greatest calling can come from our deepest wounding. Mine came from watching my parents struggle with making a living and the shame of not knowing what truly made them unique, and how to use conscious creation to bring that into their life purposefully and with prosperity.

My journey beyond college and degrees (BA in City Planning, Systems Analysis at UCLA) led me through a corporate career in Aerospace. My focus was Industrial and Production Engineering working and leading on large scale programs (New Airplanes, B-1B, GPS, Space Station) at Boeing and Rockwell International. I understand Leadership and Organizations from the experience, not theoretical side (though I have studied that for 30 years). I have a passion for Organizational Transformation and Transformational Leadership. We won’t evolve much further in the workplace without it. I spent 5 years after my aerospace career working in Real Estate Finance in Beverly Hills with actors and entertainers. It was an experience that evolved me greatly. In 2000 I attended the Hudson Institute in Santa Barbara for my Coaching Certification.

My Work

All of us feel the chaotic and accelerating change going on all around us. This I believe is the beginning of a world in transformation. There are many names for it, most of which you already know. What’s most important I feel is the rate of change going on inside of you that aligns you to the changes going on around you. We are all questioning our relevance and effectiveness in this turmoil. The deep questions are beginning to surface in our awareness. Can I truly live a life of meaning and purpose and make a living to support my lifestyle? Do I really understand what makes me unique and how I can get others to appreciate and ultimately compensate me for expressing that uniqueness? Can I find a tribe that honors my essence and uniqueness and an environment I can move along the path of my authentic evolution and Mastery? Can I be prosperous and be compensated well for my chosen contribution. Personal Development is no longer a periodic effort to stay relevant, but a day today commitment to your own evolution. Self Leadership is the only path forward to your Soulful fulfillment with your life’s work. In todays information and expert rich world there is simply no excuse to stay stuck and not move forward. As I have gotten older, the clear image of what I call an Optimized Incarnation comes into full view. My work focuses on helping you develop intimacy with your uniqueness, answer your Callings, focus on a Purpose and consciously create your contribution to the Human Condition. Don’t ever think for one second the world doesn’t need you, it does. Know that everything you have ever done has prepared you for what you are about to do next. We are here to learn and experience our uniqueness and your only true work in life is to become who you were uniquely designed to be. My work is to join you on the journey of the true unfolding you, and be in congruence with your uniqueness that creates sustainable fulfillment.

Our Work

I have been consulting and coaching professionally since 1997 and informally 10 years before that. I have been engaged in many coaching models and processes and have developed my own model that I feel is highly effective. I focus on what makes you unique, where your personal power is, what you truly Soulfully want in your life and tapping into your experience to create a process of emergence for you to realize your authentic vision and deep fulfillment.

Our work together is a Co-Creative process. Conscious creation is not a spectator sport. Being on the edge of your potential and evolving your uniqueness in a purposeful and meaningful way is a deeply fulfilling experience. It takes courage, willingness, and openness. Our work together will be focused on what gives you meaning and purpose in your life, and how to prosper from it.

Next Steps

Let’s talk. We will only move forward if there is a fit. I define a fit as aligning my competence to your willingness and well defined needs. My work is sacred to me and I want yours to be to you. We are on this planet to evolve and I take this all quite seriously as I know you will. My fees vary by need and scope of work. My individual fees are different than my corporate rates. I work with individual contributors as well as leaders up to C-Level. Duration of engagement depends on you. We constantly review the benefits you are receiving and I am not contract focused as much as results focused. We will create a contract that works for you.
