I’m driven towards coaching as a process I want to share with others because of how I think I can best make a difference – by supporting and preparing leaders who want to make social change, either as part of their work and/or as part of their overall mission in life. I am doing this work because I love working with people and groups to see them grow and accomplish things that they are passionate about; and because I think we need to do more to support leaders to make change.
As an example, in my original professional field (public health), it’s estimated that between one-third to one-half of the workforce will be eligible for retirement within the next 5-10 years, due to the demography of the baby boom generation. That’s a lot of people, experience, and know-how potentially moving out of the work world in a short amount of time.
So what? Why is this important?
