"Why I Coach" ~ Reflections from Our Graduates

By Angela Lindley, ACC and UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education Coaching Graduate

When our graduates reflect on what coaching means to them, the result is an outpouring of love and a desire to be of service to others. 

I coach because I care about leadership. I know the difference coaching can make to everyday discussions, as well as big decisions, and am inspired to help others see that too. - Jeff Lakuska

I coach because people who strive to make their lives better are the architects of a better world. It is a privilege and an honor to be part of helping them operationalize their vision of the possible. - Donna Justice

I coach emerging women leaders to unleash their natural strengths and the courage to share their voice. By doing so, I can create many ripple effects of positive change in our communities that I would not be able to do without coaching. - Sonia Kaur

I coach because I believe that each soul is worthy, unconditionally capable, and badass. I love helping people search the depths of their own soul to come up with customized and individually brilliant strategies to live a life of their own creation... in utter and complete choice! Who WOULDN’T want to do that?! - Traci Preciado
