Empowerment Coach

Dawn Geschiere, CPCC, ACC

 Hi, I'm Dawn.

Experienced. Engaging. Empowering.

As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has--or ever will have--

something inside that is unique to all time.  Fred Rogers

My Story

I coach, empower, lead, write and speak from a place of passionate authenticity and quiet inner strength. I am a Certified Empowerment Coach who wants to see you showing up for yourself and others, fully empowered and alive.

I'm also a life-long learner, a spouse/partner married for 41 years, and a Mama of five incredible young adults. I love travel and adventures. I'm a nature-lover and want to be outdoors whenever possible, soaking in nature's nourishment whenever I get the chance. Since June 2021 I'm a Breast Cancer Warrior and Thriver.

Background & Experience

I've been fully trained as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), one of the first established Coach training schools. The Co-Active Coach training model has stood the test of time and combines with my years of coaching, facilitating, and speaking experience through faith-based non-profits. I'm also an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF).

Core Values & Beliefs

DawnGeschiere-1byCandaceSmith-8116.jpg

I believe in the worth and dignity of every human being.  I picture you and every human being fully empowered, authentic and thriving--making a beautiful impact within your relationships, your community, in the world.

Your own belief system is important to who you are--shaping how you live and engage with the world. I believe that all human beings are created in the image of God, a loving Creator who designs each of us with a deep and unique purpose. Whatever your own faith or beliefs, I'm certain you are wonderful and unique, with your own story unlike anyone else's. You have a purpose, and your purpose is your YES. Through my Co-Active Coaching practice, I engage with you to explore and listen to your own YES, the story of you.  Together we call forth what's powerful in you for you and your world to experience and enjoy.

Testimonials

Through our coaching Dawn reminds me that I have the power to make changes in my life. She guides me towards healthy living and pushes me to be curious about paths I wouldn’t otherwise notice. She empowers me to be confidently authentic. I highly recommend Dawn as an empowerment coach.

This pandemic has taken a toll on me. I was set on an emotional roller coaster and my family had to deal with the brunt of it. It wasn’t fair to them and it was a daily challenge for me.
Shortly thereafter, Dawn at YesToLife Coaching was recommended to me.
Dawn offered me her listening, powerful questions, and amazing guided visualizations to center myself and help me discover what life values bring comfort and beauty to my world. I experienced her coaching regularly for over six months and every session left me feeling refreshed and renewed. I have learned and experienced a number of tools from Dawn to ground myself and live intentionally. She has walked me through every step at a pace that I set for every session. I have never been more aware of myself and my needs before. It has really been an incredible experience and I would wholly recommend her coaching services to anyone.

Working with Dawn and YesToLife Coaching has been a most profound experience for me--one that will benefit me for the rest of my life. Dawn has keen insight and extraordinary listening skills. Her calm demeanor put me at ease right from the start and enabled me to open up to her in ways I had never been able to do with anyone else. After 10 coaching sessions with Dawn, I have been able to overcome some lingering issues and move forward with courage and determination. Dawn's caring nature and authentic personality lends itself beautifully to the art of coaching. My investment was life-changing!
