Helping Other Academics To Thrive 

Building on experience gained through academic appointments in a variety of departmental and institutional settings, I enjoy working with other academics to pursue successful careers while also navigating the challenges of maintaining a healthy work-life balance as they do so. Over the years, I have built up a portfolio of coaching and editing services for working one-on-one with other academics to meet their goals. If you are interested in learning more about these services, please contact me to discuss your situation, we can set up a free telephone conversation to discuss rates and which services would best meet your needs. 

Strategic and/or Productivity Coaching 

Many academics are familiar with the mismatch between the towering to-do list and the feeling that there are just not enough hours in the day, or days in the week, for all the work to get done. Through a variety of exercises and one-on-one coaching sessions, I work with my clients to triage among competing expectations. Together, we develop a strategic plan and, if appropriate, also put in place schedules and accountability mechanisms that may facilitate them successfully reaching their goals. Depending on client needs, this coaching can focus on teaching or research priorities, but in many cases includes considering of the full range of expectations an academic may face. Coaching can be undertaken with shorter (3-6 months) or longer (multi-year, tenure-track) time horizons.
