Our Story

Pursuits was founded in 2008 in response to that time of economic and national upheaval.

We recognized the heightened need for us all to navigate wisely, develop the greatest degree of personal & professional resilience, and focus on leadership.

We built a coaching team that would embrace change, engage others, and build relationships and partnerships that exemplify courage and connection.

Here, in 2018 – again a time of ambiguity and rapid change – the need for us to show up as robust leaders intent upon steering our lives and organizations in the wisest of  directions has only increased.

Who We Are

We believe our intimate and professional relationships both have core needs in common:

We are hard-wired to connect—to be human is to be social.

We desire to experience true caring—interactions where we are consciously seen, exchanging respect, and pursuing a common purpose of great value.

What We Do

At Pursuits, we listen deeply, engaging directly with you and your world, and together generate a customized plan enabling you to develop “C” change—wherein you see the change that’s possible, and grow as a result.

We offer our work through contracts, cohorts and coaching. We contract for services,  group cohort programming and 1:1 coaching for business leaders & emerging professionals to explore potent leadership distinctions and apply them effectively with their teams.

We offer our “gold” Quest for Success for organizations as a year long program integrating a discovery process of your organizational needs, vision and goal setting, team development and coaching for implementation. We include pre and post metrics to evaluate and celebrate transformational change
