Don't Miss the Forest for the Trees!

"Everyone can benefit from some form of coaching."


Presentation Coaching Information Linked Here

One of the benefits of hiring a coach is their ability to offer you an objective perspective on your situation. I can help you see the light provided by the future when it can be hidden in the shadows.  On another front, I can provide perspective for your presentation or speech, believe me, I've made my share. I can even help you grow your nonprofit organization.  Check out our parent site at for more information on nonprofit coaching.

It's too easy to fall in the trap of focusing on the details or the "trees," (not the one in the courthouse tower behind me in Greensburg, Indiana.) Sorry, I couldn't resist.  Often, we are too close to our own problems and we may not see the opportunities or the challenges that others can. We may also be influenced by our past experiences and emotions, which can cloud our judgment and limit our potential. We can fall victim to the nerves that arise when making a speech.


I've been driven by being part of the solution and I coach with encouragement and experience.  My goal is to help you break free from these limitations and guide you towards your desired outcomes to fully appreciate what exists in the "forest." I will help you or your organization explore your options, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and create a realistic action plan. I will also hold you accountable for taking action and provide you with feedback and support along the way.

If you have an important presentation to make, I have over 30+ years of experience in making presentations and appearing on stage in theatrical productions.  I love helping others excel and I offer a helpful ebook, can review and critique your presentation and style, and coach you to the best possible outcomes, making you a crowd favorite.


Reach out to us today and see how a coach can be your partner in achieving your personal and professional goals, and help you navigate through the uncertainty and complexity of today's world.  All of our appointments are offered virtually.

David J. Fry, MPS - Master Life Coach


How does life coaching differ from other forms of mental health assistance or coaching?


 Answer: Life coaching is NOT therapy or counseling.  We do NOT treat, diagnose, or provide mental health review or opinions  We deal with the present and the future as it relates to your goals, ambitions, and  barriers.  We deal with the past only as it relates to its impact on your future.  Our DISC assessments are an example of identifying behavioral preferences that might impact your future opportunities. 


For those who are grieving, we can help provide ideas for finding a new purpose in life.  We would not recommend our services for those needing to deeply process their grief, or deal with complicated grief issues.  We would view our services to those emerging from grief from loss or change as the "next step" and providing clarity and hope for the future.
