First Edition Coaching

Leadership through authenticity.

The workforce is newly awakened to what is important in life. As a leader, what are your words and actions telling them about what you value?

First Edition Coaching provides value-centered private coaching and group workshops. Our practice is simple. We help clients identify, memorialize and live their core values. These unique values remain at the center of our coaching. We use them as a guide to set direction, to provide clarity of purpose, to align decision-making and ultimately to produce authenticity in leadership.
