“The world is essentially a mixed bag, and you can do something to protect yourself, move towards the things that are more helpful, and avoid the things that are more dangerous.”

Childhood Incidents

Leslie was born in 1960 in Denver, Colorado to parents of very low socioeconomic status. Her mother’s family immigrated from Italy and started a bakery. Her father’s family immigrated from England to “tame the wild west,” but he abandoned her family when she was six. Her mother remarried after being a single mother for a while. All these experiences impacted Leslie.

Influential Groups
Being born into a poor, blue-collar, conservative, Mormon, American family in a homogeneous, misogynistic society was influential for Leslie, and she worked her entire life to shed the negative patterns she grew up with. Her Ph.D. and coaching practice is about transformation and helping others to identify and transgress old patterns.

Temperament and Personality Influences
Leslie claims her temperament is cautious, with a combination of perfectionism and idealism. It has been a challenge for her to become more of a pragmatist/realist, but works to contribute toward the improvement of things instead of chasing perfection.

Cultural Epiphanies
Leslie moved to New York City in her mid-30s to pursue a singing career and experienced a culture shock, because it was so different from the homogeneous suburban experience she had had. It was challenging to adapt to the ever-changing city with its over-stimulation and stress.

Advice to an Employer
Leslie is always intrigued by what they bring to the session and looks to understand where they are coming from.

More Great Insights!
Leslie shares that coaching can be a powerful tool to help people open up without fear of judgment in a world that is not conducive to vulnerability. Your coach can help you strategize and be the accountability partner that pushes you out of your comfort zone.
