What Can You Expect From Me As Your Coach?

Hi There!
It can be challenging to bring new coaches and consultants into your world. What if you don’t “click,” or easily understand each other?
The easiest way to know what it’s like to work with me is to watch a few minutes of one of my live stream videos that I do every week. I selected this one because I think it will give you a good idea of what I’m like and how I think. I also am sharing my experience, how that experience relates to my work, and the values of my company.

Rourke Training Company Values


My theory of teaching and learning is straightforward. It relies solely on the principle that “anyone can teach any learner anything”—with a healthy dose of Prep, Practice, and Pivot.


If it’s not engaging, it’s not working. “Humans don’t learn from dull.” The training you need should be the training you want.


The Rourke Training community is a safe space in which to learn and support each other. Leave prejudice at the digital door.


I don’t lie. I don’t obfuscate. I believe in transparency. Presenting feedback is kind but direct.


Feedback is key. Why? Because one of my must-haves upon building Rourke Training was ensuring that everyone spends as much time as possible living in between their zones of excellence and genius, “all holding the same shared vision,” and “giving each other grace.”


I don't believe in allowing or propagating practices that discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs, services, activities, and employment practices.


We’ve all worked in places where the work was more important than the humans doing it. “Self-care is having enough respect for yourself and everyone else in the company that you ask for what you need, and help to provide what others need.”


“If we keep our perspective focused by research, then we’re always looking forward. And we’re always thinking about how we’re going to be modifying the work and improving the work. The work is never done.”
