“What if you could identify and understand the differences about how and why you fail miserably every time you try to connect with others on a deeper level? Did you know that understanding your natural tendencies and how you instinctively express them in your behavior plays a pivotal role in your understanding and relating to others? It’s those exact same things, the things you take for granted about yourself, and assume are true about other people, that create the stumbling blocks in your ability to connect with them at a deeper and more meaningful level” states Dr. Young.

For some clients, the positive change they most want may be focused on personal goals such as developing lasting conflict-free relationships, creating a life plan, balance life and career, or simply bringing clarity, order and meaning to one’s life, etc. Other clients may be more interested in professional or business goals such as developing leadership, brand development, or starting a business, etc. An effective coach works with the client to help them live a better, richer life – regardless of their type of goals.”
