Dr. Kim - Rise Up and Lead!

Professional Coaching

THINK WITH ME
Thought Partnership

People already have the solution inside of them.

But sometimes, they can get stuck in their own head. I can help with that.

Coaching is not advising, counseling, mentoring, or consulting. It’s not about me telling you what to do.

Coaching is a partnership that gives you the space to think, learn, and create so you can discover your own potential and maximize your thinking.

Improve your leadership skills and your outlook on work and life.

Professional Coaching for Educators & Leaders

Coaching Partnership Sessions are tailored to your availability and needs. Schedule weekly or monthly time to discover your own potential and maximize your thinking at your convenience. This could be a quick half-hour phone call or a monthly hour-long zoom meeting.

“Coaching has been helpful for me because it has given me an opportunity to work on myself as a coach.”

I have a new administration team, who are very different from the admin teams I’ve worked with in the past. I am struggling with “nicely” discussing topics, strategies and our opinions about what is best for students. Coaching has been helpful for me because it has given me an opportunity to work on myself as a coach. I have been able to talk through “problems” and find solutions to solving them. It has also made me stop and breathe.
