Eric Tonningsen, Life Coach
Working collaboratively, I help my clients get excited about WHO we are, WHAT we are, and most importantly, WHAT CAN STILL BE.
With confidence and uncompromising trust, I build partnerships that:
Not surprisingly then, I enjoy working with individuals who are committed to improving their lives. As a Life Coach, I have a unique ability to connect with people and situations and quickly get to the “heart of the matter.” My communication style is direct, yet with humor, compassion, and what it takes to stimulate people in transition.
An advocate of self-belief, I respect that each of us has the power to think, feel and act in ways that help us be the person we are here to be. I “get it” that individuals, teams, and companies have dreams. I also appreciate the difference between “doing” and “being.” As a coach, I:
Becoming a coach was not a decision; it was a discovery. For over two decades, I have coached top managers. A former Corporate Vice President, I have been responsible for multi-faceted teams supporting Fortune 500 companies. My customers were from multiple industries including the Federal Government, telecommunications, banking and diversified financial services.
Retrospectively, it was cumulative exposure to success-oriented people, driven at any cost, that allowed me to realize the only thing standing between me and my dreams were roadblocks I put there myself. I became defined by the corporate world and all of its expectations, rather than who I really am. Put simply, I lost my “true” self. My own journey through these roadblocks opened up a vista of possibilities that I didn’t even know existed. What I learned and now eagerly share with clients is that I coach because I love to help clear the way for others and make a difference in people’s lives.
In a more traditional capacity, I coached swim teams for several years. A responsible and humbling experience, I relished this role. Little can be more rewarding than watching others set goals and achieve personal bests. Looking back at those “on-deck” motivator days, I knew I would eventually coach as a profession.
A graduate of Coach University (the leading global provider of coach training programs) and a member of the International Coach Federation, I have a B.S. Degree in Economics and Finance, and a MBA. Great business knowledge and a gift of helping individuals, enables me to guide clients to breakthroughs.
