The Crossroads Coach Programs

The programs outlined below can be adapted or customized as needed. Contact The Crossroads Coach for current rates and special programs, or to schedule a Spark! session today.

These unique coaching programs and The Crossroads Coach approach have been developed and refined to support a variety of career coaching and life coaching objectives, as defined personally by each client. Sessions are typically conducted via phone or Skype. In-person sessions for local clients are also available, although additional fees may apply.


This is a discovery session, for first-time clients only. The phone consultation lasts 45 minutes and is configured to provoke insights and possibilities that might be further explored in a coaching partnership. The session fee ($95) can be applied to a standard Individual program (note exceptions below), provided a commitment is made within 10 days of the Spark! session. Spark! is a great departure point for clients who aren’t certain which program would be the best fit.

The Energy Leadership Index Assessment and Debrief

A 1.5-hour session, following completion of the 20-minute online assessment, to review results, raise self-awareness around the client’s energetic profile and energy blocks, and identify potential themes and strategies for development. This is an invaluable conversation when change is desired but the client seeks more input and guidance to determine focus areas. The E.L.I. also integrates seamlessly into ongoing Individual programs, as an initiation point, or at other points in the journey when the client is examining the effects of energy on his or her ability to evolve or effect change. (See 4th tab for more information on ENERGY LEADERSHIP™.) Spark! fee not applicable.

Fuel Your Fire

This is a one-time 2.5-hour intensive structured to survey the first four components of the process. The session culminates with determination of the preliminary action steps to be taken towards your goal (Plan Design); it involves some pre-work for the client, and a customized curriculum for the session. This program is recommended for those clients focused on a single, specific goal for which they seek support to initiate or accelerate, or to overcome blocks. Spark! fee not applicable.

Fan the Flames

This is a one-month coaching partnership that segments and expands the engagement described in Fuel Your Fire, allowing for insights and breakthroughs between sessions, as well as interim coaching support. This program can either be stand-alone, or sequentially follow a Fuel Your Fire intensive, adding detail and depth to each of the four components highlighted previously. It includes four (4) consecutive weekly one-hour sessions, and unlimited email communication with The Crossroads Coach between sessions.

Clarity Quest

This is a three-month comprehensive coaching program. An extended partnership of this kind allows for deep exploration and insights mining of the three key questions. This program spans all five components of the process, with ongoing support through the early stages of Plan Implementation. It includes twelve (12) consecutive weekly one-hour sessions, unlimited email communication with The Crossroads Coach between sessions, and two (2) “lifeline” calls outside of scheduled sessions (15 minutes each).

Ready for Revolution

You see yourself on the verge of significant transformation, which will impact more than one area of your life. A consistent, reliable, safe space for self-examination will empower you to articulate your vision, hatch your plans, confront your fears, and make things happen. The Ready for Revolution coaching program offers invaluable support for your journey over 6-9 months. Package includes twenty-four (24) one-hour sessions, unlimited email communication with The Crossroads Coach, two (2) “lifeline” calls outside of scheduled sessions (15 minutes each), and two (2) stand-alone Power Hours to be used within three months of the program’s end.

Action and Accountability

This program is for clients who have already completed an Individual program. It is designed to provide light coaching support when you’ve already got momentum but would appreciate having an accountability partner with whom you can review your progress and troubleshoot the occasional roadblock. Sessions are a half-hour in duration and are scheduled weekly (12 sessions) or biweekly (6 sessions) over three months. Spark! fee not applicable.

Power Hour

This is a single session, one-hour in duration. It is beneficial for clients who seek support to problem-solve an acute situation, brainstorm a new opportunity, or reconnect on a familiar issue following completion of an Individual program. A flexible package of four (4) stand-alone one-hour sessions is also available, to be scheduled as needed and used within six months of purchase. Spark! fee not applicable.
