About Dr. Gottschalk & Coaching

Nothing grows without support.

My coaching practice focuses on building a foundation within your career. That foundation can provide the stability that leads to so many great outcomes — engagement with your work, creativity & productivity. (You can read more about stability at The Harvard Business Review.)  My formula gets to the heart of things. To the elements that must be present for both people & teams to thrive at work. I focus on the foundation of the work. The secret sauce. The launching pad for fulfillment, productivity & success.

Empowered work includes the right lens & a space for self-reflection.

Withering on the vine is not a work life strategy. Taking action is the only way to create a work life that engages. My researched-backed system helps individual contributors & teams get there.

About You

If you feel that your work life could be better, but you are unsure about where to begin — start at the foundation. The Core. Start with yourself.

  • Your Personal Work Life Commandments: What matters most to you? Have you respected your core?
  • Productivity: What habits & mindsets can support our work?
  • Supporting Your Worklife Core: How can you measure & bolster your psychological resources?
  • Managing Ourselves: How can we address the obstacles in our way?
