Sharon Y. Brown, PCC, MS Life coaching transformed my life! So I’m passionate about helping people experience the power of coaching. I love working with individuals and groups who want something more in life and are ready to take action to get it. My clients are culturally diverse and include professionals, corporate teams, nonprofit leaders and staff, educators, college students, and other individuals who want support to make major changes in their personal or professional lives. One aspect of my work that I’m particularly passionate about is contributing to community revitalization and to children’s success, by helping to integrate coaching services and coaching skills training into urban communities like those I grew up in. When school administrators, teachers, parents, community leaders, nonprofit service providers, youth and funders learn basic coaching skills, they can apply those skills to help transform their lives, relationships, organizations, and communities – collaborating to create exciting and innovative change.
