What is a Personal Development Coach?

Personal development consists of activities that develop a person’s capabilities and potential, build human capital, facilitate employability, and enhance the quality of life and the realization of dreams and aspirations. Personal development may take place over an individual’s entire lifespan and is not limited to one stage of life. It can include official and informal actions for developing others in roles such as teacher, guide, counselor, manager, coach, or mentor, and it is not restricted to self-help.

Five Aspects of Personal Development

Career & Education

Finance & Budgeting

Health & Diet

Leisure & Joy

Spirituality & Balance

Career Coaching Services

I help my clients gain access to employment opportunities by teaching effective job search techniques, including networking and online resources, ultimately creating a career path that is unique to your innate set of skills.

Regardless of where you are in your career:

  • Finding Internships or Volunteerships.
  • Entering the Job Force.
  • Seeking Employment Opportunities.
  • Preparing for a Job Promotion.
  • Job Transitioning.
  • Transitioning to Retirement.

In addition, we provide support to the newly employed to ensure they retain their jobs and advance in their positions. All clients are encouraged to seek career opportunities that lead to fulfilling their long-term goals and reaching their potential rather than accepting dead-end, entry-level positions.

I help you identify your innate skills and discover what you need in a job to be truly happy and contribute more meaning so that you won’t find yourself in the job market again for a good long while.

Whether you are looking to discover a career you love, build the confidence to make a change, or develop the necessary skills to land a big promotion, we are here to help you make it happen. Creating tangible results in your life and career is our utmost priority, and so our coaches have all undergone rigorous training and are experts in their field.

The "I Am" Retreat

The “I Am” Retreat’s intention is to amplify wellness through sound science and personalized audio production. Our retreats immerse tradition with technology, enhancing your intentions in session and developing your tools for better being every day.

Your body is just cells vibrating at a particular frequency at a quantum level. We will locate your exact frequency, amplify it, and then use it to find what is blocking you from always existing at your optimal vibration. We use transformational exercises to shift your mindset, elevating your vibrational level to where it’s meant to operate. When you leave, your life frequency will be amplified.

A consummate professional, David can be counted on to deliver the highest quality service, just as you expect. I voucher for his expertise and his sense of caring.
I mentored David shortly after he relocated to Washington, DC in 2001. He had recently transitioned out of the Marines and wasn’t sure how he was going to jump-start his career in the public sector. His determination and persistence led to him quickly landing his first of many great jobs. He is a quick learner, flexible and optimistic, necessary skills to stay employed and progress. He is now using his knowledge and experience to help others in their career.
It’s a pleasure to work with and recommend David. He’s reliable, responsive, and consistently professional.
