Personal Development Coaching To Help Align Your Work, Life & Values...

What Exactly Is Personal Development Coaching? 

I have the philosophy that we are all fully human. We don’t stop being a spouse, parent, friend or neighbor when we go to work, and we don’t stop being a healthcare worker, product manager or systems engineer when we go home. Balancing these roles can be challenging. A personal development coach can help you discover ways to make it all work, so you’re fully present, both at work and at home.

What Qualifies You To Offer This Kind Of Help? 

In 2016 I began my training to become a coach, completing my studies the following year. In 2018, I obtained my designation as Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). In 2021, I received the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) designation. This involved 500 hours of coaching more than 70 clients, 129 hours of coach-specific training, 20 hours with a mentor coach and other continuing education credits.

In 2019, I was accepted at BetterUp, where I serve as a Fellow Coach, a Communication Specialist Coach and a Navigating Uncertainty Coach. 

What Are Sessions Like? 

Sessions are via Zoom and are scheduled for 30 minutes, but can sometimes be up to 40 minutes in length. The emphasis is on you. You decide on what you want to work on, the desired outcome of the sessions and overall, and I help you get there

How Often Do We Meet? 

Weekly. 

What Do You Charge To Work With Clients?

What Kind Of Results Can I Expect? 

The people I work with are highly motivated for change. I have helped clients get a handle on work-life balance, creating boundaries between work and home and becoming more productive at work. Most have been successful in obtaining it. I did not promise such results to them, nor can I to you. I am here to ask questions, challenge your thinking and support you in a safe and confidential space. Ultimately, you are responsible for creating your own decisions and results.

What If I Need Help With More Personal Areas Like Stress Reduction Or Managing Burnout? 

Then, I can help! I personally experienced burnout throughout most of 2018. It drains you physically and emotionally and takes a long time to recover from. It is far easier and more beneficial to stop burnout before it happens. I now recognize the signs, and can help you assess whether you’re at the brink. 

If you’re already there, you’ll need the help of qualified medical professionals like your doctor, counsellor, etc. I am not a qualified medical professional and cannot offer diagnosis or treatment. 

Do You Offer A Consultation To See If We’re A Good Fit? 

Of course! You’re welcome to book a Discovery Call on my calendar. This is informal and absolutely free of any obligation whatsoever. It’s an opportunity to get to know one another and get an idea of where you are and where you’d like to be.

Coaching Testimonials

"As a tech employee, I struggled to gain influence in the workplace. Brent pushed me to reflect and increment my influence over time. But, most importantly, he challenged and level-set my own expectations. Without Brent’s metaphors, action steps, and grace, I would have continued to fumble around stressful interpersonal situations. Luckily, I didn’t. Coaching lent me the space to understand confounding variables that—ultimately—were more personal than I thought."

-- ANDREW, PRODUCT DESIGNER, SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANY

"Brent helped me work on myself and my career plans by being empathetic, asking the right questions and supporting me to make this journey at my own pace while also holding me accountable. I’ve made a lot of big strides towards gaining confidence through self-awareness and looking inwards at what I want my career roadmap to look like. Through our sessions together, I have achieved the goals that I set for myself and was also able to get visibility further into my future enabling me to continue working on myself and my career."

--V.S., FIRMWARE ENGINEER, SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANY

"The coaching has helped me practice reframing. The most important thing I have received from the coaching is support in a very stressful time. Having the weekly support of a coach where I can share without worry of judgement has provided an opportunity to verbalize problems and stressors so that I can start to resolve them.

It was really wonderful having a kind and compassionate person like Brent to talk to about work, the new projects, the new job, the new boss. Thank you for sharing your gift of coaching. I hope you know what a big difference it has made for me in these last 6 crazy months."

-- MICHELLE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY

"With his motivating coaching style, Brent did a great job of helping me clarify the outcomes of each coaching conversation which helped me identify and take actions to achieve my objectives. Brent has great coaching presence and is a skilled listener. I really felt in partnership with Brent as a coach. Brent is a masterful coach, he is adept at helping his clients clarify what’s really important and take measured and practical steps toward achieving their desired outcomes."
