Not everyone has ready answers to the typical sort of questions that are asked when discussing personal business development. The What are you goals? Where do you see yourself in five years? questions can shut a lot of people down and make them feel stuck. Thats where Ricci comes in. She knows how to reach people where they are. She creates a safe place where one can dream and think and plan. And then what she does next is so critical and so rare: she nurtures the fragile ideas. She helps strengthen them, she gently shepherds them from idea to plan to steps in the plan. And then somehow you are moving along in your five year plan and have goals and are taking steps to achieve them. The key thing is she understands that in order for it to be your plan it has to have your buy in and reflect your skills and visions. (And it also has to fit the business, and be realistic). Having a coach who can help you on a path for authentic growth for yourself is a wonderful thing indeed.Feb 10, 2016

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Two sessions per month via phone/GotoMeeting is $350/mo One session per month via phone/GotoMeeting is $200/mo
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I meet with a new client for an initial 30-minute consultation before engagement, to learn about their objectives, what they are looking for in a coach and to answer any questions they may have about me or the coaching experience. Once engaged, we start the coaching process before the first meeting with a personality styles survey, personal questionnaire (to get the thinking process started) and several other exercises - all to be competed before our first session. Our first session is 1.5 - 2 hours long. There is a lot to cover in going through your homework, clarifying objectives & outcomes, and reviewing the feedback from the personality styles survey. After this initial session, all other meetings will be for 60 minutes, meeting twice monthly.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Although I started out on my path with a Master's degree in directing improvisational theatre, after performing, training and directing actors for nearly 25 years, I had begun coaching my students in more than acting techniques, breaking through what was getting them stuck in moving their careers forward. Then people other than performing artists started to ask to work with me, saying "Would you help me get unstuck too?" I then started working with business teams in creativity, communication, teamwork and strategic planning. I worked for 16 years with a firm that specialized in working with family businesses through succession, and became a Certified Succession Planner through the International Succession Planning Association. Later, I trained and became a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coach Training Institute (CTI) and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have logged in nearly 2,000 coaching hours since certification. I am now the current President for the ICF San Francisco Bay Area Chapter. I continue to attend conferences, workshops and summits on leadership, coaching and earning CEU's through CTI & ICF to maintain my credential.
