executive coaching & leadership development

Perhaps you have reached a crossroads in your career. Perhaps you are seeking an innovative way to make your mark. Perhaps you have a new (or a seasoned) team to inspire, or new client expectations to fulfill. Perhaps big organizational changes are afoot, and you want to create strategies for yourself and others to manage change proactively. Perhaps you want to cultivate a more sustainable work-life balance, or learn to communicate more effectively to your managers, peers or your team. 

At enso, we offer Executive Coaching for individuals and teams who are ready to fulfill your unlimited potential, and become the best version of yourself in your professional sphere of influence. We work with professionals - including nurses, physicians, health care administrators, educators, legal professionals and community leaders - who are in pursuit of transformation by way of inquiry, mindfulness, and compassion.

health & life transition coaching 

Whether life transitions are planned or unplanned, change is inevitable. Transformation, however, is optional. If you have experienced a life event or  been diagnosed with an unexpected illness, disease or injury, you may be overwhelmed with the various lifestyle changes that your new circumstances require. enso offers experienced Health Coaching to individuals and families managing conditions including Type 1 Diabetes, Cancer, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and chronic pain to live a function-centered life. We also work with individuals undergoing significant life changes, such as retirement, divorce, or loss to transition healthfully, wisely, and gracefully into your next stage of life.  

Like our Executive Coaching services, we infuse our Health Coaching strategies with a harmonious blend of powerful personal inquiry, exploratory visualization and planning, integrative and collaborative approaches, emotional intelligence, and compassionate mindfulness.
