Dr. Gottschalk’s Core Method

Success isn’t about just one thing.
It is layered.
And it begins with a strong core.


Dr. Gottschalk’s practice focuses on building work life core stability for both individuals & organizations. This is the vital foundation necessary to capture valued outcomes — including engagement, agility, growth & productivity. Core stability is about embracing the entire person, team & the organization. It is for individual contributors, teams & for entrepreneurs attempting to build a healthy, thriving culture.

With specific experience working with high-functioning teams & organizations in flux, Dr. Gottschalk utilizes a coaching process which includes honest assessment, guided exploration & a unique set of skill building strategies. Her programs are particularly relevant to new or developing leaders — and evolving organizations.
