“Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?”
Bob Marley, Exodus
Adele loves working with individuals, nonprofit professionals and teams to articulate values as the starting place for work and life that are nourishing, balanced and sustaining. She is particularly drawn to those who find themselves at a crossroads professionally and personally, and despite apprehensions and uncertainty, hunger for self-discovery and exploration of new possibilities. Adele specializes in career and life transition coaching, and her desire is to support clients in moving through that dynamic confluence that is life, guided by their own innate wisdom.
Most organizational management work emphasizes the institutional level while neglecting the individual. This can result in nonalignment of the personal values and needs of the individual with that of the institution’s, and disconnection from a driving force for meaningful work. Adele utilizes coaching inspired approaches to bridge the institutional and the individual. It is a reflective process, designed to allow clients to discover their own creative solutions, that can improve effectiveness and broaden choices in moving from understanding to action and accountability.
