About Andrew

Many top students who are moving into the next stage of their life are challenged to perform at their best. These students move through periods where balancing new expectations with prior skill sets reduces overall performance. These students are not candidates for counseling or intervention.

The outcome of this balance issue is seen in demotivated or distracted individuals and for some, changed grades and behavior. Simply, parents, relatives, and educators are at a loss for what to do next in bringing this once vibrant young man or woman ‘back to life’.

Unique

Andrew worked with educational leaders and the fundamental concepts we have learned from coaching struggling entrepreneurs and stuck executives to build this program. Consistently we see and hear that our approach is unique in delivering results for top level students in college and high school. The fact is there is no similar program.

Personalized

Because the needs of the student and situation are always unique the level of coaching and mentorship is arranged and communicated through an agreement set forth at the beginning of the process. mentor

Mentoring allows for information dissemination from the eyes of the coach.

Andrew has a tailored framework of practicum-based material allowing for skills to be transferred to the participants. The sponsor can choose what parts and emphasis of the materials suit the needs, culture, and goals of that student.

Coaching offers meaningful and consistent balance and accountability outside techniques used by ‘self-help guides’ and ‘tips-and-tricks books’. This has been proven true over many years for top sports professionals and business executives alike.

Andrew tailors to needs of the individual and goals of the student.

The delivery of a student-specific and tailored mix of these two facets of learning and doing provide personalized and quick results.

Andrew works with students from all walks of life who are facing many different situations and taking on different challenges. Although each person and their situation are unique, there are some important similarities. They…

Are willing to examine what is really important to them
Seek clarity and purpose
Are tackling school / future anxieties
Are determined to make the most of out life
Want to feel differently about their lives and their future
Are ready to create positive habits and drop negative one(s)

Results

You should expect results within the first session. My clients have consistently given feedback to the value and integrity of the coaching. Here are a few examples:


“The discipline he has shown over the last 2 months is an incredible turn around.” - Parent of a Coaching Client—November 2009

“The tools we have worked through, especially the ’life stretch areas’, has really helped my family and I communicate about what we want… …and future to look like and ACT on it.” - Coaching Client—September 2009

“I didn’t feel any motivation. Everything just kept piling up. I really appreciate the personal guidance. I feel like I am moving forward each week with important items not just tasks.” - Coaching Client—October 2009

“Going through the exercise has been fantastic in gaining focus… Also the prepping spreadsheet has been very helpful. Our discussion last week really gave me new insights that will be useful…” Coaching Client—December 2009


With 15 years of experience in the leadership, organizational, and individual development, Andrew brings his extensive knowledge of conflict management, systems, facilitation, and group dynamics to helping individuals, employees and entrepreneurs respond more positively to the difficulties and challenges that life brings.

Understanding the patterns in our lives enables us to make better choices. His warm and engaging approach creates a safe and productive environment. As a personal coach, Andrew brings all of his experience to help his clients explore options, set personal goals, create practical strategies and concrete plans as well as the personal skills that lead to real world achievements.
