“The interesting thing about coaching is that you have to trouble the comfortable, and comfort the troubled.”
~ Ric Charlesworth
You must first understand who you are, pinpoint your innate behaviors, recognize what drives you, and reveal your strengths and your view of the world and yourself. Through a powerful process, each coaching session focuses on your topic, goal, desired outcome, current reality, options, and a way forward to immediately have a plan of action.

In order for your strategy to be successful and your organization to achieve success, it must be built on a firm, diverse cultural foundation. This foundation is your people. This diversity goes beyond race, sex or origin, this cultural diversity is about intellectual diversity. It is about seeing the whole person and the value they contribute to your organization. New ideas, innovation, and profitability are a result of like-minded people thinking different thoughts.

I have attended a number of Bob's seminars and mentoring programs, and and they were truly top notch. I highly recommend his training programs. "
"Bob, along with another bloke, held a 'Fireline Leadership' course in Northern Tasmania Australia and I was lucky enough to have attended this course. How unique, how inspiring was the teaching style, no boring bits at all!!!!! Bob has this amazing ability to 'make' you see yourself without you realising it, the bad stuff and the good things that are part of your makeup. Because of the course and Bob's unique style I did a lot of self reflecting and now I am busy practising 'active listening' techniques, I mean REALLY listening to people and small talk is sooooo much less of a chore for me. And that is only a part of the skills I now practice. Recommend, recommend, recommend! "
"I reached out to Bob & Nancy with Kittridge Connection to help provide clarity and direction with a business idea. I was unsure whether I should fully commit to my venture... would it work out? I decided to engage a core team to help me determine the viability of my idea and product. Bob suggested I sign up for his course, "Put Your Dream to the Test." I also participated in a full-day workshop at the conclusion of the course. The course, combined with the workshop and Bob and Nancy's counsel, gave me the courage and confidence I needed to put my dream to the test. I launched my company in June 2018 and within four months, I generated over $35,000 in product sales, placed my product in over 50 locations, hit my first 100 case month, and was picked up by a distributor. Bob and Nancy with Kittridge Connection have been instrumental in helping me stay the course; their encouragement and counsel should be sought and followed by every small business owner. I love you guys! I'm so thankful for you!!! "
"Until I met Nancy, I hadn't given a lot of thought to the extent leadership impacts me personally. Working with Nancy has taken my leadership to a whole new level. Nancy is an outstanding communicator and team builder. Working with Nancy has challenged my perception of myself and of others. She has helped to clarify my purpose and vision and added incredible insight to my own career. I highly recommend Nancy Kittridge to help any individual or organization go to the next level. "
