Your Truth. Your Voice.
Your Dreams. Your Goals.
We live in a world of constant change, increasing
complexity and unbalanced demands. Our ability to realize our dreams --
both personal and professional -- takes greater skill, effort and
focus. More and more often, it takes the guidance of a professional
mentor or coach to help us do the foundational and transformational
work we need to do, not only to find our way and stay on course, but to
truly contribute and thrive.
Coaching works. It helps both individuals and organizations set and reach higher goals. It is an action-oriented partnership that
asks more of us than we would of ourselves and empowers us to produce
results more quickly. Coaching concentrates on where we are today and
the steps we need to take to reach a desired future state. Effective
coaching strategies can help us do a number of things, from creating a
more joyful existence to developing action strategies for meeting and
exceeding fulfillment goals. It helps clear impediments to connecting
more effectively with ourselves and others and can eliminate
self-defeating behaviors and perspectives that stand in the way of
actualizing our best lives and selves.
Grace Noonan-Kaye, Principal of GNK & Associates, is a leadership development executive coach and a skilled platform trainer. She brings two decades of "hands-on" applied experience in organizational and human resources development, guiding individuals and groups to embrace new skills and strategic visioning required to thrive in a world of perpetual change.
"Grace and I met when I was immersed in the tactical day to day operations of my new business. Although I was happy with my early success I had a growing sense of dread about the bigger picture knowing that I didn't have any plan for vision and strategy. I was too absorbed in minutia to write a mission statement or develop a strategic plan for the year and beyond. I met Grace with a stack of papers and torn napkins where I had been keeping notes and after several sessions she sent me away with a well defined purpose, an operating business plan, a specific to do list and a lot of wonderful insight. With her keen insight and understanding she urged me towards the confidence that I deserve to have in myself and my business.
The scaffolding of my business has strength and integrity thanks to Grace. I feel relieved and fortified because of her sharp intellect, her confidence in me and her unyielding optimism for what lies ahead for Maine Works. Thanks Grace!
--Margo Walsh, Founder Maine Works
"I have referred many people to Grace because she is very effective. What she is best at is removing filters – getting at the crux of issues using laser intuition to hone in on the most important things/most important steps for moving forward. She very quickly gets to the 'what.' Sometimes she pushes me out of my comfort zone, but that’s why I call her – to hear what I need to hear."
