My Transformational Coaching Philosophy

My coaching supports people in achieving the results that are important to his or her personal success and the long term success of his or her organization. I assume that you are the expert in your life.

My commitment to you as a coach is:

  1. to be a trustworthy partner, honest and open with you about what is going on my life, and handling what you share with me with respect and discretion.
  2. I’m committed to believing in you, supporting you in your change goals and helping you live out your destiny.
  3. I will draw out your expertise through inquiry, curiosity and gentle challenges. I will help you to stretch into your best self.

To do that, I introduce self-observation exercises, assessments, and (if fitting) healing prayer. I am attentive to your physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual state. I help you to focus on your present behaviors. I seek mutual understanding of the organizational culture and systems (including policies and practices) within which you lead. Although my role as a coach is different than consulting, advising, therapy, or counseling; coaching does address personal issues or life conditions that impact your effectiveness.


Anticipated Outcomes

The anticipated outcomes of transformational coaching for the client include:

  • Identification of the key behaviors to continue, do more, do less, start and stop doing to increase their effectiveness.
  • Involvement and commitment of stakeholders (i.e., direct reports, peers, support staff, supervisor) in the process of increasing effectiveness if the client is a leader.
  • With sufficient client commitment to the process, measurable improvement will be noticeable and measurable (by ongoing feedback from stakeholders) on specific leadership behaviors.
  • Long term effectiveness for the client and the client organization, based on increased capacity to achieve results through building and maintaining healthy relationships.

My company recently merged with another large financial institution...As I reviewed the many programs on managing change, I found that most took a “change is good” and “get on board or get out” approach. With an eye toward a tight workforce and wanting to minimize turnover and maximize the strengths of the existing employee base, I knew that this approach would not work with our organization. Patti Hathaway is refreshingly direct and supportive of the human side of the merger and challenged people to handle the change because of the benefit it would bring to them. She tailored the program to our company and was both direct and insightful with her presentation. Patti is an excellent speaker and clearly enjoys working with a challenging audience.
