We have choices
The definition of free will is the ability to say "yes" or "no" at any given moment. In every moment there is fear and love, we have to recognize that we have the ability to choose. What we choose and what we choose to pay attention will manifest.
David Rude, MA, CPC, EAC, CGW
I am an expert Life & Education Strategist, Certified Professional Coach, and an Equine Assisted Coach (certified) with more than 30 years of successfully and professionally supporting individuals from K – 12, college and university, and groups, educators, and business men and women (non and for profits).
I assist my clients in improving their levels and styles of communication and increasing the effectiveness of their relationships (both professional and personal). I have many years of success helping clients, both in the States and abroad, achieve significant and lasting changes in their personal and professional lives. I structure our working relationship around you and your personality and needs.
I am committed to the belief that change can be easy and enjoyable and I work in close partnership with my clients from day one (listening to their needs and developing solutions collaboratively) to make sure they achieve their desired outcomes in a way that generates positive improvements in all areas of their lives. As a result, there is increased organizational performance. When the client and I work together towards common goals, great things happen.
I have spoken to and worked with children, teens, adults, including, educators, counselors, school administrators, and business managers at numerous venues, including board rooms, executive retreat centers, and personal growth centers in the States as well as in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
I hold a California Crosscultural, language, and Academic Development Certificate.
I live in beautiful Northern California with my wife, two dogs, and our Gypsy Vanner and Drum Horses. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, traveling, reading, eating/cooking, and learning. I have a passion for carriage driving my Drum horse mare, Glimmer, and supporting Gypsy Magic Equine Outreach (GMEO). I direct the GMEO community garden and grow vegetables year-round.
