About Julie

Hello, I’m Dr. Julie Wechsler and I help people and teams achieve stretch goals.

For over 20 years, I’ve helped students, teams, and leaders claim what they want, and helped them get it.

During my years in Higher Education, I helped hundreds of new college students discover and develop their unique talents. These students achieved their education goals and went on to live successful lives, both personally and professionally. Most importantly, because of the success of so many individual students, the institution itself experienced improvements in key measures including persistence, student success, and retention.

My focus now is on sharing these proven methods for producing success with small- to mid-sized businesses. I help leaders and teams identify stretch goals, and align the unique talents of their people with the achievement of those goals. As a result, teams become more cohesive, focused, and productive, resulting in increased engagement and better customer service. Research shows that these strategies lead directly to improvements to increases in profitability.

I also coach people who are experiencing a significant change or challenge in their lives, and here’s why. In 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Of course I was frightened, but as a coach I’d seen people manage big challenges more effectively through the intentional use of their strengths. So I used mine to connect with other patients and together we designed and focused on our healthy futures. These relationships sustained me and 12 months later, I was cancer free. I'm different now, and much clearer about my life. I've also become very clear about the power of using our strengths to experience greater wellbeing. I would love to help you do the same.

Are you ready to clarify what you want and achieve the results you’re after? Please contact me for a free coaching conversation to determine how I can help you achieve your most important goals.
