Upleveling Your Career
What Qualifies You To Offer This Kind Of Help?
I have worked a variety of careers spanning four decades, all with communications as the common thread. My broadcasting career spanned a decade and a half-dozen radio stations as an announcer and program director. I dabbled in movie extra work, improv and stand-up comedy during that period.While the communication thread persisted, in 2016 it began to emphasize the listening component. I initiated 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
Most of the past 30 years has been in the communications business, predominantly in media relations, often as a spokesperson. I also provided crisis communications advice to executives. During these three decades, I did side hustles as a narrator for radio and TV commercials. In this period, I completed a degree in Ministry and did some speaking on the side, including officiating weddings and funerals.
