Meta Consulting by appointment

One-on-one Meta Coaching with Linda Berens

Meta Coaching is one way practitioners can gain more skill and acumen with their coaching, team development, and workshops.Change work is lonely work. You are often working on your own and cannot use members of the system as co-consultants. Meta Coaching gives you this objective sounding board from outside the system. As you discuss the particular issue you are concerned about, Dr. Berens will share her insights and make suggestions for you to incorporate into your work. Or sometimes, she is just a catalyst for you to come up with your own solutions. Usually this coaching takes place over the course of an hour or two with some follow up email conversations.

By appointment

Fee: $250 per hour
