In order to break free from your current challenges, you must raise your level of THINKING. Sure, tips and techniques are important but DOING them when you need them is a matter of THINKING. Get to the root of the problem and solve it forever.

Executive/Leadership Coaching

Coaching changes lives. Period. Coaching creates breakthroughs. Leaders who invest in themselves by working will increase their leadership capacity and influence ten-fold because they will be utilizing the core thinking and valuing assets that they already have more fully.

Organizational Development/Team Building

Teams today are faced with an array of opportunities and challenges that they are not naturally equipped to deal with. Trust-building, Team-Leading, Results-focused workshops are designed to build upon the existing team dynamic and develop untapped skills and assets to overcome key challenges.


No roadmap can lead you to where you want to go if it is missing one critical piece… the YOU ARE HERE sticker. The VQ Profile assessment measures where you are and gives you the tools to get you where you want to be. It does NOT measure your personality or behaviors; it measures your thinking… your value-judgment quotients.

What our clients say

“Traci, you have worked a miracle! I’ve gone from an overly aggressive, scared, and fairly shy person, to a compassionate, caring, and empathic listener, now capable to speak to any size of audience. As my “Be” coach, you’ve done an incredible feat to help me get through my challenges, so now I am very capable of truly connecting with people during my sales cycle and during coaching sessions, leading me to have an excellent business in less than one year!
”With your help, my clients are getting the results they deserve, because I’m the coach who is doing what it takes. We at ActionCOACH talk about working harder on yourself than on your job, and you’ve provided me the mechanism to do just that. I’m very proud to consider you to be one of the major reasons I’ve had an incredible jump start in my ActionCOACH business. Thank you so much Traci, you ROCK!!”

“…I was tired of the PDU standard venues and decided to try something new. All I can say is “WOW!” That person on the team who drove me over the edge – Traci’s coaching gave me the tools to solve. The beating my head against the wall because nobody would give the project the same priority – Traci’s coaching gave me the tools to solve. Those roadblocks that occur again and again in my projects – Traci’s coaching gave me the tools to solve.
I had an ah-ha! every session. Like project management, this process is not for the faint of heart. It demands courage, boldness, decisiveness, curiosity and a commitment to be the best “me.” It was the best investment I have made in obtaining PM PDUs. I plan to go through it again and I can’t say that about any sources for PM PDUs I’ve attended to this point!”
