Finding Your way

Subscribe to Our FREE Coaching Video Series
In a recent Minute with Maxwell message, John defined a coach as “…someone who can come alongside of you and can correct you without criticizing you in a way that is negative in your life."

A coach is a word that means ‘come alongside.’ Come alongside and share together, listen, teach and lead.” Our coaching involves the ability to understand you; to live where you live, think how you think, and understand your perspective. From this benchmark, we will place another perspective on top of yours, stretching and growing you, to gently see a different way. We can see what you are going through and things you are going to go through.

There are times in life when you arrive at the crossroads of opportunity and success, but might not recognize or take advantage of it. Throughout your lifetime you have had several brilliant ideas; however, there may not have been anyone available, or willing, to support and encourage you. There are moments when you are unsure of how to follow your heart, your dream, your passion, so you get stuck in a rut, spinning your wheels aimlessly. Coaches are there for you to speak with, by asking great questions. Coaches assist you in generating possibilities, so you can achieve your goals and dreams.​

We see our clients as a whole person, with nothing broken, and nothing to fix. Rather, we view you as a complex individual who is full of brilliant ideas and is capable of creating boundless possibilities for your life. Our clients are encouraged to examine what they really want and the possible ways they can move forward to achieve it.

Our relationship is one where you are provided the space to focus on the solutions to overcome the obstacles you are facing, and the support to help you see them through.

If you are ready to live by design and not default, our coaching services are the answer. We are committed to assisting you in creating the life you desire and deserve.​

What they Are Saying


Coaching Experience

I was in need of direction for the next steps in my life and also to process through some things that were keeping me "stuck".

I decided to let someone into the struggle I was having in my head and heart - someone to help me sort things out and move forward into a richer, more focused life.

The most important thing I have learned in working with Bob is how much I have operated as a victim. And while this was initially really hard to hear and accept, it has been life-altering and life-giving. I now have the freedom to see it for what it is and choose if I'm going to be a victim or a champion. I regularly choose to be a champion!

I would not be where I am without the work Bob and I have done. I love that he has never told me what to do or what to think or judged me for my faulty thinking. He has asks me good questions, hard questions, and sometimes the perfect question to help me discover (often) what I already knew, but needed someone to help me do the work to get to a realization of what I needed to do or how to resolve something. Bob has challenged me, been my biggest advocate and greatest cheerleader. He is truly gifted in what he does, and I am so thankful for his willingness and joy in using his God-given gifts to help people like me. Thanks, Bob. I look forward to all that the future holds for both of us!

Beyond The Badge Leadership

Bob Kittridge instructed the 'active listening' portion of the 'Beyond the Badge' leadership class I recently attended. Bob instructed in both group and individual settings. His technique was highly effective in both teaching arenas. I was especially impressed and impacted by his nuanced personal coaching methods during this class. I recommend his instruction in all areas related to interpersonal communication.

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.
