Wellness, Executive, and Leadership Coaching

Rosewood Coaching is dedicated to making good and talented people into great leaders and managers, eliciting the best out of employees, tapping into a person's creativity and drive, and causing an organization to run better.

Rosewood Coaching radiates integrity, ethics, and professionalism. All executive and personal coaches are credentialed through the International Coaching Federation.

Rosewood Coaching is committed to the whole person. The key to a successful organization is its people. The coaches of Rosewood Coaching are committed to people, helping them function at their best. Rosewood's credentialed executive coaches use science-based methodology to achieve change. It is a process-focused, professional, outcome-driven system whereby a client achieves organizational and personal excellence through a variety of assessments, interviews and exercises.

Why the name Rosewood? The Rosewood tree is a thing of great durability and strength. Its wood is rare and richly hued; and each tree's unique patterns are as individual as they are beautiful. Rosewood Coaching encounters each client as a unique individual-with his or her own patterns and strengths.

Leadership Team

Bobbie Sue Wolk and Rick Wolk, principals at Rosewood Coaching, are a very strong and committed team. They stand with feet firmly planted on the ground, but aim high as they encourage clients to achieve lofty goals. She is trained in the behavioral sciences and industrial organizational psychology, which serve as the roots of the executive coaching industry. He is an entrepreneurial expert. A business junkie. He can't help himself. He sees incredible potential in business start-ups and in the people who launch them. Together they balance the head knowledge of the science-based approaches involved in executive coaching, along with an organic and intuitive sense of a client's wholeness-their professional, personal and spiritual potential, which they tap into effortlessly and expectantly, giving people the space and the freedom to...dare we say it?—step out on a limb. Or branch out into new ways of thinking and responding to those around them.

From exit interviews and 360-degree assessments conducted through Rosewood Coaching, clients leave the coaching experience feeling satisfied not only with the assessments and tools that were provided, but with the care and selection of each client to one of Rosewood's fully credentialed executive coaches.
