The ancient Greek words noētikos and nous are the roots of noetic. Though there is no English equivalent for nous, the common translations are "intellect," "ways of knowing" and "characteristic of the human mind."
Noetic refers to "inner knowing," a kind of intuitive consciousness or direct and immediate access to knowledge beyond what is available to our normal senses or the power of reason.
Noetic Coaching is a full-service practice offering business, entrepreneur, leadership and lifestyle coaching for small and medium sized businesses. Noetic Coaching is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal or business projects and successes, conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, not in the past. We help you discover the obstacles or challenges affecting you and help you determine a course of action that makes your life what you know it can be.
At Noetic Coaching, we use an interactive process to help individuals and organizations improve their performance, allowing them to achieve extraordinary results in their personal and professional lives.
“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive, who is Youer than You.”
- Dr. Seuss

“I learned there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead, others come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready, you see.
Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me.“
