"Minds are like parachutes— they function only when they are open."—Louisville Times.

Empowering clients to be open to finding the path that's right for them is the cornerstone of Duhon Executive Coaching.  A large part of my coaching philosophy incorporates health and wellness strategies to achieve peak performance, deepen relationships and fulfillment in life.

Liesel's successful coaching strategy focuses on the 3 Pillars of Health:  Physical Health,  Mental  Fitness and Community. This powerful triad works to develop permanent change by building on these vital keys to happiness at work and home, so that you are in the Zone, just like highly skilled athletes.  When you are in the Zone, work is more fulfilling, your performance soars, relationships improve and things are effortless because you are truly fulfilled with your life.

I work primarily with mid to senior level female executives in a range of industries, helping them identify their unique strengths and looking at how these qualities can be maximized in the work space. With confidence comes success and being open to opportunity, whether it be tracking down your dream job or simply feeling invigorated and properly rewarded where you are right now.

Like yours, my own skill set is unique and I offer access to the learnings of an unusual balance of former senior leadership in the U.S Department of Commerce, life and business coaching, the global creative arts and performance sphere.  As Louisa May Alcott said "It takes two flints to make a fire"

  • Together, we commit and design a path to your future career through deep conversations to find your true purpose in life.

  • Together, we will bring balance to your work and life as we focus on  your personal pillars of health and wellness. In turn, you reach peak performance and deepen  relationships to find  an ease and flow

  • Together, we face and solve workplace challenges such as colleague confrontations, supervisor conflicts and team miscommunication.
