Active Listening and How to Use Core Coaching Principles
A conversation with Lumia Coaching instructor, Danielle Adams-Wiltshire
Danielle Adams-Wiltshire is originally from the Jersey Shore, and she now lives in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. She calls herself a reformed retail banking professional, who spent more than 15 years serving in multiple service, sales, business development, small business lending and managerial roles.
Since the official inception of her business in 2014, she's taken a great deal of pride in successfully reinventing herself from her rise in the financial services world to her RESET as a business leader, creating her own “C-suite” with QueenSuite. Today, she works primarily with professionals looking to shine or straighten their crown.
What does Danielle teach in the Lumia coach training program? Danielle teaches in the Signature program, and is a mentor coach for students who are working toward their ICF credential. Two of her favorite topics to cover in the curriculum include Active Listening and Powerful Questioning.
