Summit Coaching sessions are designed to help you get clear on who
you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. I can help
you discover the simplest, most powerful action steps for moving
toward your vision. I encourage and inspire you to take these
steps and guide you through whatever internal and external obstacles
you may encounter as you move forward. I support you in bringing
nonjudgmental awareness to everything which arises so that you
may continuously learn and grow.
My coaching approach is results-oriented. By blending left-brain
practicality with a deeply heart-centered, intuitive perspective,
I help clients bridge the gap between vision and action. I encourage
clients to aim high, while staying grounded in developing realistic
strategies and timelines.
This approach has proven effective for a broad range of people. My

Summit Coaching’s approach helps them develop strategies for
managing stress effectively and fulfilling both personal and business
goals. Drawing upon 15 years of running a successful nonprofit, I
have an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges leaders face.
People in Transition: If you are ready to move on to a new chapter
in your life personally or professionally, Summit Coaching Services
can help you to clarify your options and make choices which support
your happiness and success. Having lived an adventurous live with
several different careers, I am able to help clients see transitions
as exciting opportunities, rather than crises.
Visionaries: Often, people
with a big vision have difficulty chunking it down into bite-size
do-able action steps. As
a result, they frequently
are unsuccessful in bringing their vision into
manifestation. Having taken the Joy of Sports Foundation from
an idea that popped into his head while running one day to a
vibrant organization which has made a difference
in the lives of more than 50,000 children, I
can guide visionaries
and implementing a grounded approach to making
their dreams come true.

Sustainability Services for Nonprofits
Does your organization constantly struggle to make ends meet? Does this struggle create a high level of stress for your staff and Board? Are you starting to burn out and lose your passion to serve?
If the answer to any or all of these questions is “yes,” then you might be interested in the sustainability servicesSummit Coaching Services provides to the nonprofit community.
During his career as a nonprofit CEO, Andrew Oser observed first-hand the lack of resources and high turnover that is endemic to the sector. He developed an approach that enabled him to maintain his energy and inspiration for 15 years as Executive Director of the Joy of Sports Foundation, while growing an organization that served more than 40,000 children nationwide.
Through Summit Coaching Services, Andrew now offers support to the nonprofit organizations and leaders. His specialty is helping nonprofits achieve both inner and outer sustainability. Inner sustainability means creating a culture which supports all employees in maximizing performance, while minimizing stress. Outer sustainability refers to developing systems and strategies that consistently provide the organization with the financial and human resources needed to effectively carry out its mission.
Andrew’s combination of nonprofit leadership experience, coaching and training background, and dedication to personal and spiritual growth enable him to bring a uniquely effective perspective to the pursuit of inner and outer sustainability. He has helped many nonprofit organizations, including Difference Makers International, the I AM Foundation, and the Mt. Shasta Bio-Regional Ecology Center, to reach new levels of sustainability and success.

Andrew offers retreats for Boards, staffs, and combined Board/staff teams. Through his 25 years experience in leading retreats, Andrew has developed a keen understanding of how to plan and guide a successful, outcomes-based retreat.
