Combining decades of experience as a Gerontologist and coach with a life-long passion for adult development, leadership, and energy management, I developed the Entrepreneur Turned Inward™️ (ETI) coaching model. This powerful model is based on the understanding of a natural inclination to be excited about creating a new and better future by investing in things like businesses, other peoples’ success, and the like. I turned this idea on its head and ask you to invest in the business of your life and leadership.
Coaching is a personalized and dynamic process with two, often overlapping, areas of focus.

"Co-facilitating a workshop with her allowed me to see how she can mix the logical and lyrical in a fashion that allows nearly anyone to understand her approach to consciously curating one's life. She is able to ignite the passion of midlife in her clients and students partly because she is such a role model for this passionate way of being."
"Barbara has a terrific tool box and is very results driven, thoughtful and organized. She helps me see different ways of viewing a situation which are transformational. She is a consummate professional and a joy to work with."
"As an educator, I've cultivated a solid foundation in youth development, but personally, I've realized that I lack the same level of expertise regarding my own development as an adult. I was fortunate to discover her and engage her as an executive coach. Barbara's frank expertise has been so useful in naming my experiences, providing perspective, and framing the challenges and opportunities intrinsic in this stage of my work and life. "
"I had the fortunate opportunity to receive coaching and guidance from Barbara as I navigated through questions and ambiguity around my future plans. Barbara was genuine and open in her approach. She thoughtfully led me through a series of exercises and meaningful introspection that has not only brought me clarity, but also introduced me to new ways of approaching life. This has been super powerful for me and I'm so grateful to Barbara!"
"Barbara is an amazing coach. I can say that as a coach myself. She has given me invaluable coaching in my work both as an executive coach and as a life coach. And she has given me great life coaching too. I thoroughly recommend her."
"After selling my company I spent some time trying to figure out what to do next. Giving up my corporate role felt like I was giving up my whole identity. But fortunately, somebody suggested I call Barbara Waxman. She helped me think clearly about my interests; allowed me to find my own process for decision making; and gave me a host of ideas I still use on a daily basis. Barbara is wise, thoughtful, supportive and-- in a good way-- tough. I recommend her highly."
"Barbara is deeply committed to advancing the leadership and performance of individuals and teams both at home and at work. As a Stanford GSB alum, I have had the opportunity to attend many excellent workshops and found that the materials presented were already elements that I had been working on with Barbara. Barbara Waxman's work is outstanding and I highly recommend working with her."
"Working with Barbara as an executive business coach was life-changing. She guided me through my life and business priorities, helping me define my goals and creating parameters so that I could easily implement and achieve them. Her compassion and heartfelt understanding is what sets her apart from other executive and life coaches."
