Coaching for Social Change Leaders

What I offer as a coach

I know how exhausting it can be to see a vision for the world and want to give everything you’ve got to make it happen.

I’ve been supporting changemakers for over 10 years as a leadership coach because I believe we all need support to give our best to change the world without burning out.

I believe there it’s possible to live rich, meaningful, growth-filled lives AND make a difference AND be full of aliveness (rather than burnt out).

That’s what I help my clients do.

  • Social change work: You’re working in the domains of environmental justice, racial justice, or other world-changing causes. This could be direct movement work or indirect support work that contributes to these movements.
  • Challenges & aspirations. This is probably a fit if you’re…
    • Wanting to level up the way you take action on your social justice values in your own life and relationships
    • Wanting to make a big change (like leaving your organization) and feeling stuck or overwhelmed
    • Working on a big, visionary project and feeling stuck, unclear, or just tired
    • Feeling overwhelmed by the work you’re doing
    • Having serious difficulties with your teammates or colleagues
    • Wanting to give energy to other important parts of your life beyond your work for justice.
    • You’re leading a team or managing individuals and you want to be an empowering and supportive presence for others.
  • You’re probably a better fit for another coach/practitioner if…
    • You’re just getting started in your work for justice and social change and you’re not sure where you want to focus.

The difference between coaching and therapy: Coaching is intended to support you to make the contributions you’re proud of toward a more just and liberated world. Therapy is intended to support your mental health and psychological healing. If you’re looking for mental health support, I’m happy to refer you to practitioners who specialize in these areas.

About Jeremy

Activism & coaching

I have been a lifelong climate activist. I got my start in coaching because I saw what a difference it was making for me in my life and social change work. As someone who cared deeply about the world, I found myself exhausting myself trying to contribute to every cause and organization that so deeply needed support (maybe you can relate!). Since then, coaching social change leaders has been my way to support our movements.

I’ve been coaching for 10 years (I started in 2012) and have over 2,100 hours of experience coaching social change leaders, activists, community organizers, and social entrepreneurs.

Personally: I care deeply about communal living, I’ve been learning to play piano (90’s rock out sing-alongs!), and I just started rock climbing.

Identities & social location

In my view, a part of bringing social justice principles into coaching is shining a light on social location and being able to have frank conversations about differences in identity, background, and experiences. To begin that conversation, here’s a bit about me:

I’m a white, cis, straight man. My ancestors were from England, Sweden, and Denmark. I’m 34 years old. I grew up in a middle-class family and have an undergraduate degree. I’m able-bodied and generally neurotypical. I grew up in a Catholic home and now identify as spiritual but not religious. I’ve recently started practicing Buddhism in the Plum Village Tradition. I currently live in the mountains west of Denver, Colorado.

My commitment to anti-racism, equity, and inclusion

As part of my ongoing journey to wake up to my own social conditioning, I strive to be a student and practitioner of anti-racism and decolonization. I’m currently a part of an active multi-racial community of practice of Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (JEDI) facilitators and practitioners through Holistic Underground. We are a source of accountability and support for one another around JEDI principles as we engage in our work.

Next steps

Coaching is a very personal relationship. Finding out if we’re a good fit for one another is the most important thing. And I’m definitely not the right coach for everyone. If you’d like to see if we’re a fit, let’s set up a discovery session to chat.
