Q: How does your work and area of expertise intersect with Quantuvos?
A: Resilience and organizational change are my two primary areas of focus. Many of the circumstances and situations that people bring into coaching arise from:
work and life challenges (including organizational changes) that call on resilience resources; and
opportunities to become more effective at leading organizations through change and supporting the resilience of their members.
I believe that having useful frameworks and tools to understand and support these needs are essential to coaches, and am working with the Quantuvos team to build their capability in these areas.
Q: What about Quantuvos is appealing to you?
A: Human flourishing - the intersection of bringing our best to the world and experiencing a strong sense of well-being - is of deep interest to me, as I believe that when we flourish, we are able to bring to the world what it most needs. I love Quantuvos's emphasis on nurturing the extraordinary, including both their corporate coaching and their Watering Seeds program, as I believe coaching is a resource that can help people flourish with greater ease.
