Coaching for Creativity
The smallest unit of creative action is a choice.
The pursuit of creative expressions – painting, drawing, acting, writing, entrepreneurship, for example – is often fraught with challenges, blocks, amidst the successes. Many experience an unending rollercoaster of highs and lows. What if the experience of being creative could be different?
By honoring the specific experience of creatives – the heightened exposure, deeply personal experience, and immense skill – Coaching for Creativity aims to support clients in their pursuit of the creative life.
What if we honored our creative nature? What if we could lovingly engage in our creative pursuits?
"Andrew’s calmness, curiosity and experience helped guide me to find more clarity in my creative practice and career. His questions allowed me to highlight what I truly valued and how to continue to approach my craft with integrity. I often resorted to anger with the actions of others, yet with his guidance I was able to view situations with compassion and understanding for others. "
Knowledge of possibility leads to confident action toward a particular kind of life.
Life is the output of an individual's formation. Our actions come out of who we are inside. Coaching for Possibility takes individuals on a inner journey with a focus on achieving particular goals.
Questions guide the way, as clients discover the power they have to interrupt old patterns and establish new ones in their day-to-day lives.
Clients enter into a time of experimentation, testing, and listening as they engage in becoming who they want to become.
"Andrew is a gentle, inquisitive soul. His curiosity leads him to ask perceptive questions – the kind that make me pause and reflect before answering. It also equips him to share pertinent observations and life experience so that I’m better equipped to interrogate my own challenges. As a result, I always leave our conversations with enhanced clarity and refocused purpose. He’s a fantastic coach."
