In a no-cost call with me (yes, seriously), we’ll talk about what’s happening for you in your life at work. It’s 100% confidential, and 100% a safe, no-judgment space. There’s no prep; you just show up and be you.
My goal is to be useful right in that call.
Sometimes I can share an idea or perspective that turns your problem upside down (don’t feel bad if I do—I get to see inside a lot of brains and careers and so I can offer that experience to you).
You’ll also get a taste of how working with me might work for you. If after we talk you want to learn more about how you can invest in yourself through my coaching programs (online and live), I’ll share a plan with you then that you can consider on your own time.
So you can chill during the call and not worry that you’ll be pressured into something you don’t need.
If you DO decide one of my programs is a fit for you, that’s awesome. My clients and students get great results, achieve more peace of mind, and always get our special attention.
”Darcy served as a personal executive coach during a very pivotal time of my career. Not only did she assist by leading me to ask myself the difficult (yet simple) questions, she followed through with practical action steps. I recommend Darcy to any individual or organization serious about finding the best in themselves and building a strong base for future growth.“Ron Wald, Minneapolis
”Thanks to my work with Darcy, things worked out as we planned. I didn’t have to look elsewhere to find what I was looking for from my work—I found it right at my own company.“Michael Hodnett, Atlanta, GA
”I truly can’t say enough about my experience with Darcy. While I reached out to her for a specific moment in time almost 4 years ago – she has now seen me through so much growth and transition. She asks me thoughtful questions that make me think about things in ways I normally wouldn’t. She encourages me when I need it most. And she challenges me in all the best ways. The time we have is so important to me and is valuable – and I can honestly say it has been the best investment I have made in myself.“Amanda Ferber, Atlanta
”Her overall demeanor is welcoming and supportive, yet with enough backbone to know that she has a real focus and purpose to help me help myself.“Greg Morrell, Laguna Beach, CA
”I am surviving and thriving much thanks to the “reset” work we did together. In a time where merit raises were unexpected, [my boss] told me I was one of the highest – if not the highest – on the team. Yea! Our work is being seen! Thank you for making the time to coach me and for your wise guidance. You are so appreciated.“Blair Williamson, Bryan, TX

Here’s the fact: we avoid honest, tough conversations at work because we fear the consequences. We don’t want anyone to be hurt. Insulted. Angry. And that’s okay. Because that’s just human. (Which is good, by the way, since we need a little more humanity at work.) But what’s also human is to discover you’re at […]Read the full post >>

It happens, even to the achievers among us. Sometimes, we don’t feel like doing anything at work. We’re stuck. Frozen, even (and not the Disney kind.) Oh sure, we can hear that teeny voice in our head saying, “Hey! There’s lots to do! Get busy, slacker!” But we just can’t find the right spark to […]Read the full post >>
