Thrive Across All Domains of Your Life
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative partnership that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
Drawing from the latest research in coaching psychology, Terri works with clients to expand self-awareness, and push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact, and positive emotional states.
Coaching cultivates an inner wholeness, creating a deeper connection with self, others and one’s deepest purpose.
When we find the courage to look closely and inhabit our whole self, meaning, joy and coming home to our highest purpose become abundantly available.

Are you ready for coaching?
Are you ready for a development partner whose sole purpose is to support you to live an extraordinary life?
I have no other agenda than to stand in your corner, help you see your blind spots, champion your learning, and be that guide on your shoulder to remind you of your potential and the possibilities for you life. Our coaching relationship and success is built upon mutual trust, and your personal commitment to learning and growing.
Self-awareness involves being aware of different aspects of your self including personality traits, behaviors, and feelings. It also involves understanding how these aspects appear in your life when you are in a variety of situations and emotional states.
Thinking patterns often keep us stuck in counter-productive behaviors. We will work together to identify your unique perpectives and thinking patterns and release the traps that keep you stuck.
Our beliefs, whether they’re empowering or limiting, are a result of our life experiences. They were created because we had an experience and we hold a belief that we can replicate or prevent that experience again. I have done a great deal of work with belief systems through Robert Kegan’s work, Harvard, called the Immunity to Change and offer this technology to my coaching clients.
Being an effective leader requires your agency to facilitate effective communications, set direction, create alignment, and maintain an engagement environment where people share work.
We look at your role and responsibilities to carry out commitments to the larger organization and your strengths and development needs as it relates to this role.
Individuals who are looking to expanding their leadership agility and capability will work through a series of development activies to challenge themselves into new arenas, to receive feedback and have an accurate perception of how they impact others, and to negotiate differences in a 360′ direction.
Burnout happens when you feel totally depleted, as if your gas
tank of mental and emotional resources has landed on empty. It is
usually the result of extreme demands on one’s time and efforts,
and it is exacerbated when there is no end in sight to the
exhaustion. We feel burnout most acutely when we see little hope
for a better future.
One can think of burnout as an opportunity for innovation – inside
Burnout is also a signpost telling us that it’s time to grow. The
strain and stress indicate that we’re at a “growth edge.” Our
suffering is telling us that it’s time to grow. Growth unfolds when we push ourselves to step across this threshold, to transcend it.
The move from burnout to thriving is a process. It doesn’t happen
all at once. Rather, it’s the product of cultivating a set of
synergistic habits. Like muscles, habits grow stronger the more we
use them. The key is to cultivate a group of habits that will help
you feel good more of the time.
Drawing from 25 years as a leader in learning and leadership development, combined with her own depth work, Terri helps her clients push beyond the limits of outmoded patterns to access their highest power, impact and healing.
Terri offers tools and practices that draw from coaching psychology, mindfulness, Jungian principles, and the expressive arts.
Terri’s guides clients into multiple ways of knowing themselves through holding liminal space, embracing ancient wisdom, shadow work, and creative expression. Her work is focused on the inner knowing and the nurturing of an inner wholeness, which creates a deeper connection with self and others.
Terri’s coaching background is an integral, whole person approach. Terri helps clients to see that their mind-emotions-body-relational field-shadow are all integrated. Changes in any one area impacts the others.
Core Coaching Programs
Leadership and personal transformation begin as we bring our attention to vertical development and we become more present, pay attention to our inner world, tune into our mind-body-spirit-shadow, are less reactive, and have more connection to ourselves and others. We begin to release our attachments and habits and expereience more freedom and creativity.
Immunity to Change
The mind, like the body, has its own immune system. We often work with "one foot on the gas, and one foot on the brake". This dynamic becomes illuminated in The Immunity to Change (ITC) methodology, designed by Harvard Professors Dr. Robert Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey, creates a map for understanding our resistance and a path through.
Visual Journal Coaching
Every journal spread we create has a story to tell. This story is first told in colors, metaphor, symbols, and imagery. You’ll learn to see the patterns in your life, know your many selves, and gain new insights into who you are. When combined with coaching, we integrate our many voices and bring new meaning to our personal mythologies.

What My Wonderful Freedom Empowerers Say
Within minutes of engaging with Terri, I knew she would be a great personal advocate while pushing me to advance my leadership skills and career objectives. Terri has a great capacity to understand what is required to motivate and guide you in the moment, while coaxing you to expand your own voice. She can tap into a wide-range of techniques, some honed over years of experience in corporate settings, and some acquired from her own experiences. I would highly recommend Terri to anyone!
Terri provided me with excellent corporate coaching and mentoring support. Although I was at first dubious as to what assistance a corporate coach could offer, I was very quickly won over by her superlative wisdom, insight, and very practical suggestions that were incredibly helpful and useful to me in my role in the corporate world. Her help was so valuable that when I left my position, I hired Terri to help me with personal transition goals and focus. I am a fan of hers for life now and highly recommend her.
Terri has created one of the best online learning platforms I have experienced. She is an excellent coach, facilitator, and learning leader and throughout the course she gently guided us through our personal development journey. The tools and resources she created allowed all of us to have a safe space to do some really deep work.
I highly recommend working with Terri to anyone that might feel stuck in life or is ready to tackle that self-improvement goal that has proven to be elusive. She is the best!
I was extremely pleased with the level of coaching provided by Terri Altschul. Together, we were able to identify key areas of focus and develop an individualized plan that allowed me to improve my leadership skills within a six month timeframe. I appreciated the personalized approach that she took to ensure I was achieving my optimal performance in managing a large Operations team. The tools, techniques and exercises provided during the sessions were easily incorporated into my professional routines and I quickly found improvements in my team structure and dynamic. In addition, I personally struggled with managing my work/life balance and Terri was able to gently provide techniques to improve in this area. I would highly recommend Terri to anyone who is looking to further strengthen their leadership skills. I am so glad I had the opportunity and committed myself to this process!
I was fortunate to work with Terri from 2006 to early 2011. Terri has many talents: she is brave, and not afraid to push limits and challenge even the highest level executive. Terri is insightful. She is able to listen and observe her clients and understand what is really going on and what is really needed. Terri is patient, a virtue that is invaluable while helping her client get to their ‘a-ha moment.’ Terri is open to ideas, new paths, criticism. She is holistic and ethical. She has passion for people. Terri values relationships. She is an outstanding professional, an exceptional coach, an effective performance consultant, with teams and individuals at all levels. I trust Terri to get results.
The Women Connected Circle model for deep connection is unsurpassed. Each session was well constructed to carefully and intentionally get each of us to a deeper understanding of ourselves in the presence of one another. There is plenty of safety built in and lots of challenge. After being a part of a Women Connect Circle, I decided to launch my own coaching groups. I have had 7 of them, all very successful and transformational. I wholeheartedly support and love this group work and the women of the world need this experience NOW!
“Terri is a terrific coach and mentor, and her work as a leader of online group coaching brings a powerful addition to her portfolio. By taking a holistic approach to coaching, Terri helped me see my motivations, fears, and self-perceptions in a way that I could be more choiceful in my life. Through working with Terri, I developed greater self-awareness about what holds me back, including my own inner critic. This awareness helps me to see a broader perspective so that I’m not as paralyzed or self-doubting in my abilities. Because of my work with Terri, I’ve come out of my protective cocoon and am starting to spread my wings. I’ve identified things that are important to me and moving forward I can now determine the balance I want for myself.”
Terri is an objective, neutral but motivating sounding board to discuss both professional (individual) as well as organizational challenges and opportunities. She cultivated my individual strength and growth, including restoring my self confidence and increasing my self reliance. She helped me to regain my individual power and voice in the C-suite. She expanded my perspective so that I could use different lenses to view the perspectives of my team and peers, bringing out the best in my whole team. Terri helped me expand my ways of working with others depending upon their styles and needs. Through working with Terri, I have been restored, and am renewed in who I am. I am challenging myself in a very positive way –I have increased self-confidence and self-reliance –I have become more of my impact as a strategic leader and I am delegating more to my team.
I’m so honored to have met Terri! It warms my heart to see how much she cares about people. She has inspired me to go after my dream. She has given me the tools to conquer it, and I can’t thank her enough!!! Since her coaching program, I have decided to live a life with no regrets! I want to live free, bold and sometimes daring (like King Julian in that picture I sent you 🙂 I know I’ll fall down, I know I’ll get hurt, I know sometimes I’ll disappoint people, but now I’m OK with that. Because of the values work she taught me, I’m figuring out when it’s best to forge ahead and not look back, when it’s best to jump in with both feet (or not) and when it’s better to say “no” and go another direction.
As a peer and ‘thought partner’ I especially appreciated Terri’s ability to challenge me to think of different perspectives. She has a special talent for seeing in the moment what others do not. Co-facilitating with her, I’ve seen her use this talent to challenge a group to dig deeper into their dynamics, and do it in a way that is not threatening, but rather supportive, caring, and helpful. The client always knew that Terri had their best interest in mind and was trying to help them find their own solution to an issue. Her professionalism is a model for those of us who work with teams to improve their effectiveness.
You’ve heard of the glass ceiling – the pervasive resistance to the efforts of women and minorities to reach the top ranks of management in major corporations.
What if I told you that many women also have an inner glass ceiling?
An “unconscious template” that has been defined for us, by others, and passed down for generations through the motherline.
This unconscious template is encoded with what society thinks is possible, impossible, and what is taboo for women. It tells us what feminine qualities are perceived to have value, and which attributes should be discarded.
In this Live Webinar, Terri will share the 9 Shifts that make it possible for women to release this template and reclaim their voice, authenticity, and belonging.
