The Path of Coaching
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative partnership that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
Drawing from the latest research in coaching psychology, Terri works with clients to expand self-awareness, and push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact, and positive emotional states.
Coaching cultivates an inner wholeness, creating a deeper connection with self, others and one’s deepest purpose.
When we find the courage to look closely and inhabit our whole self, meaning, joy and coming home to our highest purpose become abundantly available.

Are You Ready for Coaching?
Are you ready for a development partner whose sole purpose is to support you to live an extraordinary life?
I have no other agenda than to stand in your corner, help you see your possibilities and even your blind spots, champion your learning, and be that guide on your shoulder to remind you of your potential and the possibilities for you life. Our coaching relationship and success is built upon mutual trust, and your personal commitment to learning and growing.
You are ready to increase your self-awareness and see different aspects of your self including personality traits, behaviors, and feelings. You want to understandhow these aspects appear in your life when you are in a variety of situations and emotional states.
You want to get to the root of your thinking patterns and release the stuckness of counter-productive behaviors. We will work together to identify your unique perpectives and thinking patterns and release the traps that keep you experiencing “one foot on the gas, and one foot on the brake”.
Our beliefs, whether they’re empowering or limiting, are a result of our life experiences. They were created because we had an experience and we hold a belief that we can replicate or prevent that experience again. You are ready to not only examine our limiting beliefs but to change them.
Being an effective leader requires your agency to facilitate effective communications, set direction, create alignment, and maintain an engagement environment where people share work.
We look at your role and responsibilities to carry out commitments to the larger organization and your strengths and development needs as it relates to this role.
Individuals who are looking to expanding their leadership agility and capability will work through a series of development activies to challenge themselves into new arenas, to receive feedback and have an accurate perception of how they impact others, and to negotiate differences in a 360′ direction.
Burnout happens when you feel totally depleted, as if your gas tank of mental and emotional resources has landed on empty. It is usually the result of extreme demands on one’s time and efforts, and it is exacerbated when there is no end in sight to the exhaustion. We feel burnout most acutely when we see little hope
for a better future.
One can think of burnout as an opportunity for innovation – inside out.
Burnout is also a signpost telling us that it’s time to grow. The strain and stress indicate that we’re at a “growth edge.” Our suffering is telling us that it’s time to grow. Growth unfolds when we push ourselves to step across this threshold, to transcend it.
The move from burnout to thriving is a process. It doesn’t happen all at once. Rather, it’s the product of cultivating a set of synergistic habits. Like muscles, habits grow stronger the more we
use them. The key is to cultivate a group of habits that will help you feel good more of the time.
Drawing from 25 years as a leader in learning and leadership development, combined with her own depth work, Terri helps her clients push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact and healing.
Terri offers tools and practices that draw from coaching psychology, mindfulness, Jungian principles, and the expressive arts.
Terri’s guides clients into multiple ways of knowing themselves through holding liminal space, embracing ancient wisdom, shadow work, and creative expression. Her work is focused on the inner knowing and the nurturing of an inner wholeness, which creates a deeper connection with self and others.
Terri’s coaching background is an integral, whole person approach. Terri helps clients to see that their mind-emotions-body-relational field-shadow are all integrated. Changes in any one area impacts the others.
Core Coaching Programs
Leadership and personal transformation begin as we bring our attention to vertical development and we become more present, pay attention to our inner world, tune into our mind-body-spirit-shadow, are less reactive, and have more connection to ourselves and others. We begin to release our attachments and habits and expereience more freedom and creativity.
The Immunity to Change
The mind, like the body, has its own immune system. We often work with "one foot on the gas, and one foot on the brake". This dynamic becomes illuminated in The Immunity to Change (ITC) methodology, designed by Harvard Professors Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey, creating a map for understanding our resistance and a path through.
Visual Journaler Coaching
Every journal spread we create has a story to tell. This story is first told in colors, metaphor, symbols, and imagery. You’ll learn to see the patterns in your life and gain new insights into who you are becoming as you tape into your deeper knowing. We integrate our many voices and bring new meaning to our personal mythologies.

What My Wonderful Clients Say
Terri is the reason I am now enjoying a successful career in the Organizational Development field. Terri was my mentor as I transitioned into a Training Specialist role. She taught me the facilitation skills I use to this day. I would not be where I am today without her guidance and her gentle way of challenging me to push myself to accomplish milestones I didn’t even know I could reach.
I sought out this program at a point in my life where I realized I needed to make a significant change of direction in my life and career. It was time to learn to contribute back to the greater good from my heart, not my head. Terri taught me to look deeply inside myself for the answers, and to trust who I am in my reinvention. Her valuable knowledge, training as a coach, but most of all, her compassion and personal authenticity made this an enriching process of personal growth for me, and allowed me to unhook from so many fears and insecurities that I had been carrying for too long!
The Women Connected Circle model for deep connection is unsurpassed. Each session was well constructed to carefully and intentionally get each of us to a deeper understanding of ourselves in the presence of one another. There is plenty of safety built in and lots of challenge. After being a part of a Women Connect Circle, I decided to launch my own coaching groups. I have had 7 of them, all very successful and transformational. I wholeheartedly support and love this group work and the women of the world need this experience NOW!
Terri is one of the most insightful practitioners I have ever worked with. Her ability to hear the complicated stories of my life and help me make sense of it was second to none. She helped me see the deeper parts of myself while reflecting respect and her enormous heart. I would not hesitate to work with her again and highly recommend her as a truly unique coach and consultant.
As a peer and ‘thought partner’ I especially appreciated Terri’s ability to challenge me to think of different perspectives. She has a special talent for seeing in the moment what others do not. Co-facilitating with her, I’ve seen her use this talent to challenge a group to dig deeper into their dynamics, and do it in a way that is not threatening, but rather supportive, caring, and helpful. The client always knew that Terri had their best interest in mind and was trying to help them find their own solution to an issue. Her professionalism is a model for those of us who work with teams to improve their effectiveness.
Terri is an objective, neutral but motivating sounding board to discuss both professional (individual) as well as organizational challenges and opportunities. She cultivated my individual strength and growth, including restoring my self confidence and increasing my self reliance. She helped me to regain my individual power and voice in the C-suite. She expanded my perspective so that I could use different lenses to view the perspectives of my team and peers, bringing out the best in my whole team. Terri helped me expand my ways of working with others depending upon their styles and needs. Through working with Terri, I have been restored, and am renewed in who I am. I am challenging myself in a very positive way –I have increased self-confidence and self-reliance –I have become more of my impact as a strategic leader and I am delegating more to my team.
Terri provided me with excellent corporate coaching and mentoring support. Although I was at first dubious as to what assistance a corporate coach could offer, I was very quickly won over by her superlative wisdom, insight, and very practical suggestions that were incredibly helpful and useful to me in my role in the corporate world. Her help was so valuable that when I left my position, I hired Terri to help me with personal transition goals and focus. I am a fan of hers for life now and highly recommend her.
Terri Altschul is a premier trainer, facilitator, coach, and designer. She discovers the clients true needs and develops highly customized programs. Her relationship management and design ability are outstanding. One of Terri’s greatest strengths is her ability to truly listen and adapt in the moment to ensure superlative quality. I have known Terri for over ten years. She is always growing professionally and personally. She is the gold standard in training and development.
I have found that women can find it difficult to have relationships that are non-judgmental, authentic and supportive with other women. When they do have those relationships it is often with people who are/have experienced a similar path in life with them and the relationships are more surface than profound. Women Connected hits this issue at the core.
Through the design of the Women Connected Circles and caring facilitation of Terri, our cohort forged relationships within the first few sessions. Women where sharing things they had not told even their “closest” friends and a special “trust” was born. With all our differences, we connected in a new way. One month I was a buddy with a Buddhist Priest from San Francisco, the next with a Consultant in Utah and the next a recent MBA graduate from London. These relationships supported the foundations of all the work we did, which was very important work but admittedly would not have been as impactful had I just done it alone.
There is just something so powerful about women including other women in their lives in this way and taking this life lesson journey together. I am grateful to Terri for putting this outstanding program together, her fantastic facilitation and all my cohort friends for our new relationships. There is magic when women from different countries, different stages of life and different socio-economic groups come together in this way. It is a real gift that Terri has given us!
My team was in need of a thought leader in all things related to coaching, leadership development, and innovative ways to approach transform organizations. We were blessed to have Terri assume this position. She is a true professional, and her consultation was invaluable. She approaches her work with grace, tremendous knowledge, and the ability to help people be their best selves. She continues to be a great asset to me personally and professionally.
