"Since searching for new ways to learn more about myself and how to improve myself, that’s when things have started happening all over the place for me." - Ajit Nawalkha


I want to make a few changes,

I'm just not certain what to change?


Increasing your self awareness only makes good sense, if one of your goals if to be more effective. I can provide you with psychological assessments that will improve your deeper understanding of yourself and others. I will assist you to better understand the nuances of your personality traits, shed light onto your interpersonal strengths so that you can attenuate your vulnerabilities, and can even provide you with heightened insight into some of your own behavioral and emotional trends. Taking your deep inner emotional needs into consideration when making decisions will elevate your ability to make better decisions. Decisions that will be more aligned with how you really feel and more importantly, how you want to feel. I am happy to customize assessment protocols for your specific needs. You can read about our offerings and the more popular "Coaching Packages we offer."


  • Discover some your natural talents and develop them into strengths.
  • Clarify your interpersonal strengths and vulnerabilities.
  • Know where to stretch yourself and when to play to your emotions.
  • Capitalize on your potential and perform at your best.
  • See your vulnerabilities or areas where mistakes are most often made


I am inserting therapeutic questions for you to consider. Answer all of them or as many of them as you'd like. Answer all of the questions which resonate with you on an emotional level.




"Research shows that those who work with a professional coach not only attain success in goal areas, but also in relationships, wellness and other parts of their business or personal lives." Karen Tweedie, ICF President


The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) completed a study on accountability and found the following statistics: 


The probability of completing a goal if:


  • You have an idea for a goal - 10%
  • You consciously decide you will do it - 25%
  • You decide when you will do it - 40%
  • You plan how you will do it - 50%
  • You commit to someone you will do it - 65%
  • Have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to - 95%


The likelihood of getting new habits to stick, or of following through on your assignments and reaching goals is remarkably higher when you set a time to report back to someone on your progress. In other words, "return and report" to a person or group that is aware of your goal or assignment. 


“When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates.”  — Thomas S. Monson


A coach will partner with you, support and encourage you to achieve the results you want. Setting a regular scheduled time to “return and report” to your coach not only increases accountability, but a good coach will expand your thinking to create new ideas, enthusiasm, and momentum towards achieving goals faster than you could on your own.

"I'm Ready for My Own Personal Coach"

Hanson Square Psychology


I was recently reminded that saying "Yes" to opportunities can often make all the difference in the world, when it comes to success and quality of life. Now is also a good time to pay attention to those things that you do well naturally. Remember some of your own personal talents or strengths and begin integrating them into your current day-to-day activities and decision making. "Discovering Your Strengths" is an outcome-driven approach that has its focus on transferring coach-learned information directly to your day-to-day life.


Historically, most companies engaged a coach to help fix toxic behavior...... Today, coaching is about developing the capabilities of high-potential performers or facilitating transition -  Diane Coutu and Carol Kauffman Harvard Business Review


Recover from a drinking problem, a gambling addiction, design an effective communication strategy, solve relationship issues, poor self-care or enhance your self-esteem, even improve your leadership." Discovering Your Strengths" is right for you, if you understand the real and potential value of regular conversations revolving around you, the impact you're having on others, your personal guiding principles, goals, objectives and ongoing accomplishments. Coaching is about ushering in your unique attributes, not forcing you to learn additional standardized lessons. Calculating a consistent process to your life, a positive ritual of connecting with your coach or psychologist, can keep you sharp, happy, on top of things and competitive. Join the new elite.


Can you manage your personal and professional lives on your own? Of course, without question. Perhaps you shouldn't have to, especially if you have designs on successfully accelerating your career. Feeling as though you're doing everything you can to perform at your  best, does not necessarily equate with peak performance and reaching your potential. Professional athletes often work with a team of coaches, not only one.  A growing number of saavy business professionals are falling in line to do the same. Eagle-like experiences emerge from cultivating your own personal "flow zone."



Step one of Executive Coaching is about gaining self-knowledge. "Discovering Your Strengths" will contribute tangible, descriptive insightful profiles of yourself. Each strength-based assessment you complete will favor you with a detailed report, including action items, steps to bolster your efficacy, as well as tips to polish your over-all happiness, life satisfaction and augment your chances of fulfilling your goals and overall vision. Step two will focus you toward creating action steps, based upon your results.


Step three is experienced as you change, evolve responsibly, moving and cultivating your "flow zone." Step four is about maintenance of your "flow zone." Daily practice, guided by this insightful, personal information may prove to be highly valuable to you in your personal life, plus strengthen you, providing a clear edge over other professionals you work with.


Happy, well-adjusted people know that it takes education, committed practice or perseverance and support from others to maintain their effectiveness.  Need to be more influential?  Have a desire to improve upon any of these?  We will customize a protocol specifically to address your situation, through:


  • Discussing the specific challenge you're facing
  • Discussing which innovative approaches are most suitable
  • Assessing your personal strengths
  • Increasing your self-knowledge
  • Improving your confidence levels 


Our protocols rely upon proven and widely used psycholigical assessment instruments. They provide strength-based assessments, in-depth interviews, brain storming and ruthless personal feedback designed to assist you to acheive personal development goals. We provide a confidential, supportive, inspiring environment for cultivating your competitive edge. We're commited to work with you, as you find your flow and experience peak performances.
