In 1989 Terry left a successful career in the aerospace industry, a career he had been building for well over a decade. His last position as the head of Production Engineering on the Global Positioning Satellite program gave him the chance to introduce innovative collaborative leadership and career development processes that got him in touch with his true calling: To help people align their unique talents with their genuine passions in creating a purposeful life. Becoming a coach in the early days of the profession, Terry became fully engaged in the birth of the new profession of executive and personal coaching. Terry's focus was, and has remained, leadership and personal development coaching, enabling leaders to become collaborative, and individuals to fully actualize sustained fulfillment in their life's work.
Over the past 20 years, Terry has developed a deep understanding of the many steps it takes for each individual to walk the path of the work they are called to do; and he has great compassion for those engaged in that process. "In today's volatile economy," he says, "those aspiring to find work that is motivated by passion requires courage - courage to align to their uniqueness, to learn how to go to where they are invited, to be seen for who they really are, to feel a deep sense of belonging." Terry believes that the ability to engage the process of self-actualization will be a critical advantage for those looking to be prosperous in the unfolding economy.
Social networking is only effective when connected to those who create authentic collaboration and community; this is what Terry has centered his work around. His clients can expect to continuously evaluate how their inner work is being reflected in the reality they are creating; and to raise their awareness so they can be increasingly effective at creating a fulfilling life.
Terry is based in San Luis Obispo, California, but works with clients located all over the nation.
"I am a practical futurist, deeply engaged with what is happening on our planet, with my eye always on what is working for people in improving their lives. Enabling you to lead or serve others in an optimal way is what I am truly about."
