Coaching Approach and Style


Andria has a genuine ability to build rapport and establish a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their desires, fears, and aspirations. She is trained to apply a brain-based methodology to facilitate productive coaching conversations using the neuroscience of learning, motivation, and change. She also deploys science-based strategies to help her clients develop new habits, skills, and behaviors as well as understand change, connection, leadership, and workplace culture through the lens of the SCARF model. The model, which represents Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness, provides a great framework to help coaching clients understand the human brain to minimize perceived threats and maximize the positive feelings generated through reward when working alongside others.
