Outcomes of My Approach
“Sean has keen insight into helping balance intense work situations and transitions with mindfulness, to help guide with different coaching techniques and tools. Sean’s thoughtfulness in asking the right questions and thought starters to develop the right program to fit specific needs is extremely helpful.”
“Every coach should be required to undergo extensive mindfulness training, as Sean has. His effortless and absolute presence, which is powerful by unobtrusive listening and a finely honed compassion, are backed up by a common-sense approach to helping you find your way to ideas and solutions in a way that feels so easy you wondered why you ever needed a coach at all! This is truly the essence of good coaching.”
“Sean is a wonderful teacher, well practiced in the teachings of mindfulness and compassion, dedicated and thoughtful.”
“Sean created a safe, non threatening environment to introduce the team to mindfulness and meditation. I really appreciated how Sean led the team through the science behind these practices. I would recommend Sean to anyone who is interested in introducing mindfulness and meditation in a corporate environment.”
