Ruth has been called an executive coach for people who don’t consider themselves to be executives because she is passionate about personal development for all. She coaches groups & individuals – it aligns with who she is.
But Ruth was not always a coach. Before that, she was a program manager – for more than 25 (TWENTY-FIVE) years! A quarter-century. “That’s a very long time” as a friend said to her recently.
In 2016, she quit project management. Ruth was burned out. After 25 years in project management, she couldn’t say the word “project”. She was done – exhausted, disconnected, cynical, useless.
Now Ruth lives AND coaches by the motto BE HOPEFUL; BE STRONG; BE BRAVE; BE CURIOUS. She embraces the dark and light sides of life.
Being a coach informs everything Ruth does:
- Everything is about you the client, the audience, the student.
- She listens deeply and helps make sense for you of what she hears.
- She plays back and retells your story from a different perspective to help you see a new step.
- She is 100% in your corner – and at the same time she tries to challenge you
- She rides the rollercoaster of life, just like we all do. Its dark side is just as valuable as its light side.
