My Approach to Coaching

Ordinary Hero Coaching utilizes a combination of techniques that include the Energy Leadership program from iPEC and the Creation Coaching model from Raleigh Coaching Academy.

Energy Leadership refers to both a particular and unique form of leadership, and also, literally, to the process of leading energy, so that it works for you rather than against you. By learning and applying the principles and concepts of Energy Leadership, you can increase your ability to shift your own energy and the energy of those around you. When you do that, you will help inspire and motivate yourself and others, feel a greater sense of purpose, get more done with much less effort and stress, and constantly attract powerful people and success to you.

The Creation Coaching Model© is about connecting with your authentic self. The program is about creating the future you want based on what you know and believe about yourself. This program intends to change your perspective to embrace who you really are as a leader. When you lead from authenticity, you create meaningful connections and manifest your most unique and powerful identity as a leader.


Values and Purpose Discovery: Reconnect with your identity beyond the uniform.

Discover your WHO: We internalize the military values throughout our time in uniform, but what are your values? Values define WHO you are. This is a deliberate program of exploring your personal values and how you define those values. 

Discover your WHY: You had a purpose before you joined the military. The military simply became the vehicle for you to realize that purpose. Reconnecting with your WHY can help guide you to the most fulfilling path for life beyond the military.
