YOU ARE READY TO STEP FULLY INTO YOUR GREATNESS.
But you don’t know exactly what that looks like. Or if you do, you don’t know how to get from here to there.
That’s where I come in.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS.
Knowing who you are and what you really truly want is where it all begins. So that’s where we begin. We engage in a creative, thought-provoking process to inspire you to maximize your personal and professional potential. As your coach, I recognize (even if you don’t) that you hold the keys to creating the life you desire. I will show up for you fully, ask powerful questions, listen carefully, challenge you, and support you.
My expertise lies in facilitating a highly attuned and personalized process to help you clarify what you want and then create it. We identify limiting beliefs, false assumptions, and disempowering mindsets. You gain significant insights into yourself as we partner to identify the inner and outer blocks that hold you back so you can address or remove them. I offer fresh perspectives and highly effective tools and strategies to help bring forth your vision.
For the rest of your life, you can apply the tools and strategies you learn, along with your increased awareness about yourself and others, to create what most pleases you.
Perhaps you have worked with consultants or coaches or self-proclaimed experts of various ilks who promised personalized attention and the moon and the stars, but then provided a generic program or approach that just didn’t do it for you.
THAT’S NOT HOW I ROLL. I COULDN’T UNDER-DELIVER IF I TRIED.
Because I am wired to personalize and customize, I accept only as many clients as I can serve in this way.
Showing up fully is my nature and personality, and it brings me joy.
For more than fifteen years, I have been consulting for and coaching women and men who expect the best and know they deserve it. My clients benefit as I draw from my study and training in various disciplines, including coaching, consulting, counseling, creative problem solving, facilitation, reiki, meditation, mindfulness, and performance optimization.
My voracious inquiry into inner life—mine and those of other women and men—has continued unabated, evidenced in part by my massive personal library of books that I’ve actually read and regularly reference, and which span psychology, memoir, emotional intelligence, personal growth, spirituality, leadership, business, parenting, relationships, financial health, mindfulness, productivity, happiness, and more.
I combine emotional intelligence, intellectual rigor, spiritual wisdom, and compassionate curiosity in support of you and your dreams.
AND YET, THE POWER OF COACHING IS IN THE ALLIANCE.
Coaching isn’t done TO you. It’s done WITH you and FOR you and FOR everyone whose life improves when you live your potential.
A successful coaching relationship is a 50/50 partnership that adds up to 200%. I commit to bring 100% to every session. I engage my mind, heart, experience, and intuition to serve you. You take 100% responsibility for your side. It’s up to you to do the work, honestly communicate, be open to feedback, create the time and energy to participate fully, and follow through on what you say you will do.
As someone who has worked with many solopreneurs and as one myself, I am intimately familiar with the unique challenges of this chosen path. Particularly when the time comes to shift, pivot, or completely reinvent.
For those of us who have been in the trenches as an entrepreneur, consultant, coach, or freelancer for a decade or two or three or more, we have experienced significant changes in our professions, and with our target markets, client preferences, and the nature of the “competition.” Fluctuations in the economy and the shifting tides of the digital world require us to continually refine our offerings. Sometimes that growth is welcome and fulfilling; other times, not so much.
It is natural to occasionally arrive at a juncture when it’s time for a deep check-in. What begins as a quiet knowing that we aren’t as excited by our work or our life as we wish to be, grows louder over time.
e e cummings had it right when he wrote, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” Sometimes it also takes a kick in the butt or the wallet or both.
I am here for you. Through powerful coaching peppered with savvy business consulting, I ask essential questions that require you to think, feel, and show up. I listen intently and respond in kind as I guide you through an honest assessment of where you are and where you want to be.
Together we create a vision for your business and life that thrills you.
“Working with Stacey Stern is life-altering. Through her vast and varied professional and personal experience and knowledge, Stacey brings so much to the collaborative coaching relationship and does so with heart and humor. With passion, commitment, and kindness, she quickly helped me see ways through my enduring obstacles and guided me to possibilities that I never even considered for myself.
