“Coaching is an opportunity to invest with hope and a sense of what’s possible. I love seeing what comes from an investment in an individual. There is a ripple effect as those individuals change and shape the world.”
Bethany Yeasted Dufour likes to laugh with her clients. The work of coaching is hard, and Bethany seeks out opportunities to bring lightness into the conversations. Bethany helps clients to develop clarity in order to get the heart of the issue. She works with clients to shift their perspective by taking a step back and identifying what is truly important. Bethany values simplicity and she carries this theme throughout her work.
Bethany often works with clients who are looking to get clarity on their identities, how their values fit into their lives and work. She partners with clients looking to take on new challenges such as moving from a tactical and skills based role to a position of leadership. She also enjoys working with clients on their leadership presence, and the desired effect that presence has on other people.
