Connecting the Heart and the Work of the Leader to the Calling of the Leader
As a Leadership and Strategy Coach, I specialize in life and work matters related to leadership, strategy, calling, faith integration and spiritual formation.
As a catalyst to accelerating growth and facilitating transformation, I help my clients look at questions such as,
Am I choosing life or am I reacting to it?
Am I maximizing my personal and professional potential?
How do I move forward in developing my leadership and stepping into my calling?
Do I know how I impact and influence my family, workplace and community?
Can I envision the future and be intentional to realize it?
How do I get unstuck?
Where is God in the midst of my circumstances?
Coaching is about helping you discern where God is leading you. Together, we will seek out your gifting’s, talents, vision, purpose, and calling that God placed in you before you were born.
It is presumptuous for anyone to think that they know what can or cannot be done in someone’s life. We should not limit an infinite God by our own finite thinking.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV)

Coaching Explained: Are you someone who wants to do things differently or do different things? In a coaching relationship, we will explore and embrace new perspectives on who you are and what it is that you do.
Gary Collins defined coaching in his book, Christian Coaching, as “Asking powerful, thought provoking questions that stimulate fresh thinking, lead to new insights, clarify issues and challenge clients to explore innovative possibilities.”
As an executive coach, I help leaders gain self-awareness, clarify goals, seek deeper meaning, achieve their objectives, unlock their potential, find a path forward and act as a confidential sounding board. Coaching is not consulting or therapy. I generally refrain from offering advice or solving your problems, but rather through training and experience, I will ask questions to increase your options and help you clarify and solve your own problems.
Are we a Right Fit?: As a former high tech business executive and a licensed minister (having served on the Saddleback Church pastoral staff as the architect and visionary of the Saddleback@Work ministry), I am integrating the executive with the pastoral. I have a passion to see people realize their calling and to see them living and contributing to their full God given potential and purpose.
My years of business and pastoral experience are complimented by my work in academia as a professor in the Crowell School of Business and the Director of the Talbot Center for Faith, Work & Economics at Biola University.
Finding the right coach is important. Having the right fit between coach and client is critical.
Connecting Strategy, Leadership and Faith Integration
Helen brings a unique perspective into the world of coaching. First, she was a very successful executive leader in the high tech sector. Second, she is brilliantly gifted and third (most important) she is a mature Christian woman who walks with Jesus Christ.
She has a knack for rapidly drilling into areas where you might be stuck by asking challenging and insightful questions. She will then offer very valuable guidance that draws from both God’s word and her unique background.
Recently, I worked with Helen on several areas. She challenged me to ensure that my professional pursuits were aligned with God’s invitation into His primary calling in my life. The time we spent together was immensely valuable. I highly recommend Helen as a coach and mentor!
