The Coaches

Barbara and Allan Kenyon have worked together since 1989, helping thousands of people live happier, more productive lives.

The Kenyon “YOU-focused” coaching style means you develop skills you can use long after coaching to understand yourself, identify stumbling blocks, define your goals, and create plans to move forward with confidence and high energy.

Barbara’s unique coaching process leverages her exceptional background in coaching, counseling, business development, and life skills training – and delivers coaching services with the highest integrity, objectivity, and compassion.

Participants gain practical skills and solid strategies to help them reach their goals and get more out of life. Each workshop is tailored to the needs of your organization – to help you fine tune the productivity and satisfaction of your group.
