Why Best Year Yet®

I have been using the Best Year Yet® coaching process with my clients since 1999. Not only is it effective, it simply produces the desired results my clients are after - year after year.  They love the simplicity. I love helping them learn a new manner of accountability and cheerleading them to their successes. Additionally, I’m a product of the product – meaning that I have been using the Best Year Yet® process in my personal life as well. I wouldn’t think of living a year without a Best Year Yet® plan. In fact, my husband and I have been creating joint Best Year Yet® plans for our coupledom for 13 years, demonstrating to our children and friends what it’s like to design life purposefully instead of living it by default. Goal setting = goal getting!                                                                                                 

I’m ideally suited as the Best Year Yet® Coach for companies that are truly serious about taking their results to new levels. I’ve coached hundreds of people and teams with the Best Year Year® process including entire departments at Wells Fargo Bank, Yahoo!, the E.P.A. 9th District, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Northrop Grumman, Kaiser Permanente, and AT&T,  just to name a few. Additionally, many of my C-Suite and senior executives have brought the Best Year Yet® process into their organizations once they have experienced the proven process for themselves. In my pro bono work with disadvantaged foster youth at U.C. Berkeley, I enjoy using the Best Year Yet® program to help the youth design their first year of adulthood, giving them a unique advantage and vision.
