CREATIVE LIFE COACHING
You’ll use our innovative self-assessment survey, the Change Leader Inventory (CLI), to explore five domains of human behavior related to leading effective change.
You’ll discover keys to unlocking your capacity to living a life of creative change.
“The Change Circle Life Coaching Program and Change Leader Inventory are well honed tools for self-exploration and nurturing community impact through an understanding of one’s strengths. Journeying with Dave through several life coaching sessions allowed me time to explore these domains and assets deeper, and to customize a path that plays to my strengths and encourages me to practice both personal growth and interpersonal effectiveness.”
– Andrew Delmonte, Certified Business Advisor, Social Enterprise Coordinator, Small Business Development Center at SUNY Buffalo State

Experiences in nature where a child’s natural curiosity takes the lead
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson
