Each of us has an authentic life narrative, an expression that is uniquely our own. When we bring this expression forward and connect it in a meaningful way to others we build coherence, joy and alignment to purpose. We also attract followership.

TruePen Coaching exists to support authentic expression and meaningful connection that enables leaders of all types to become more fully present to their gifts and talents and through their example become more effective leaders.

We work with leaders, executives, and teams who seek a positive platform for growth and resiliency that support actualization. The results show up in performance, but also in a rare form of coherence and joy too few leaders believe possible.

Most men go to their graves with their music still inside them.

Our lives are a grand act of creation. As children we are heavily dependent on narrative constructions of our parents, family, teachers and friends to help us create our sense of self. All too often we accept these narratives as our true expression when for many of us these narratives fail to capture our essence, our aspirations and the truth in our hearts. Through coaching we create the space for leaders of all types from CEOs to Chief Mom Officers to become re-awoken to their authentic story and to find the practices necessary to regain control of their story and their life path. We then help our clients to leverage this authenticity in their organizations to align strategy with purpose. The impact can be profound not only on the coaching clients but on their circle of family friends, associates and colleagues
