LeaNora gives you a safe space to push beyond your surface barriers and get to the heart of what is keeping you from your goals.  If you’re like me, you put everyone else first.  LeaNora pushes you to put yourself first and really explore what that means.  She provides concrete translations to your thoughts, and helps you set goals and construct plans for achieving them.  She has been a wonderful part of a journey of self-exploration, and through our work, I have gained the time to pursue self-growth.  And did I mention she’s great with the everyday barriers that keep us from achieving our optimal selves?  This has been a great experience, and the lessons learned will carry through the rest of my life.

It has been a genuine honor to be coached by LeaNora Ruffin.  She is at once tough and kind- always pushing me past my comfort zone, but careful to tread lightly when we come to a road I’m not yet ready to cross. A busy, type “A” senior administrator, I struggle much with ambiguity.  As a result of our work together, I am much more comfortable exploring life’s many gray areas which has made me a better leader and, more importantly, a better servant to those I lead. Lea Nora is gifted at working with the whole person and understands well the interrelatedness of the many identities we all carry.  As a person of faith, I do not have to check that identity at the door just because we are navigating the world of business in a particular session. Working with Lea Nora will be among the hardest work you’ll ever do. But, it will be well worth the sweat you invest.

My experience with LeaNora has, and continues to be, a self-revealing introspective journey.  Through our sessions I have been able to more solidly identify my true goals and aspirations, as well as my personal strengths and weaknesses.  Now, with this thorough understanding of who I am and what I want, we have begun to develop personal strategies to both create and seize life opportunities, and to manage and avoid the roadblocks that may get in the way.

LeaNora has a unique ability to break the barriers that hold us back from being who we really are and achieving what we really want.  Through a healthy combination of hand-holding and butt-kicking, her efforts have enhanced my career and life exponentially!
