The Courage Practice FAQs

your most common questions (and my responses) of the work and the practice.


Why the emphasis on courage?

Courage is found in every life. Every single one.

Whether a loud roar or a quiet whisper, it shows up uniquely within each of us.

It lies within every high-stakes adventure taken in sport, career, love, or life.

Courage awaits us on the mountaintop, within the arena of our challenges, in the valley of our doubt, and in the triumph of our purpose.

But courage most often abides in the day-to-day thoughts we choose and the actions we take to move forward successfully and within our integrity. 

Courage is always there, waiting for us to choose it. 

Coaching is the uniquely personalized space where both the high-stakes and the day-to-day are explored, challenged, created, or reinvented, all in an effort to move forward from where you are to where you want to be.

Simply put, it takes courage to live your best, most meaningful life. 


Okay, What is coaching to you?

  • A collaborative process to deepen awareness and action to advance success.

  • It is common within the coaching experience to make positive changes in behavior, skill, belief, as well as strengthen one's identity and core values. 

  • Personalized impact. New development. Bringing dreams and goals into reality. 

  • A coach serves as an active listener, objective guide, and strategic thought partner. One who both supports and challenges you to rise up more fully into your strength, leadership, courage, and unique brilliance. 


Where did you get your name?

The Courage Practice actually got its name from a client. 

Over the years, many clients have shared with me how courage has played a role in their ability to transform their unique barriers into powerful breakthroughs. Some have referred to it as a core value to live by; others, a muscle to flex. One client, however, after looking at her coaching session takeaways smiled and said quietly:

"this is really just the practice of courage, isn't it?"

It takes great vulnerability to show up and be seen within the coaching space. To come as you are, illuminate your strengths and struggles, and sometimes, to choose new strategies, approaches, or beliefs to advance your success. 

Acquiring new knowledge or having ah-ha moments is both important and brilliant; embedding such learning day-after-day into our work and life becomes the practice.

 As Dr. Brené Brown highlights so powerfully, "You cannot get to courage without walking through vulnerability. Period."

Courage is a practice. It is as simple and hard as that.
