Welcome.
I’m Bethanie.

I’m Dr. Bethanie Hansen, also known as Dr. B, strategic educational leader and coach. I help leaders and educators thrive so they can help students develop their potential and promote resilience and lifelong learning in their communities.

Educators care about developing the potential of students they teach, and about nurturing them in the subject-area. And because educators give their time and energy to teach others, they also need help thriving through healthy wellbeing strategies and work-life balance. I help in both areas–wellbeing and teaching–by sharing personalized tools and brain-based strategies I’ve developed and collected, listening, learning about people, and guiding them to draw on their strengths and abilities. It’s exciting work that brings clarity and confidence to those I work with and keeps me growing too!

Yes, you can reclaim your power and purpose, with practical tools to lead with confidence and wellbeing.  

I’m a full-time university Professor and Department Chair, a coach, and your partner on your teaching journey.

My Coaching Method (Click to view)

Even if we haven’t met yet, I believe you have what it takes to succeed through challenging times. You have made it to this point effectively, and you have gifts, abilities, and strengths. In our work together, I’ll help you identify areas of your life and work where you would like to thrive and draw on your strengths through strategic wellbeing plans for the authentic impact you’d like to have. I use a holistic wellbeing approach that may include education theory, adult psychological development levels, character strengths, core values, reflective practice and journaling, brain-based approaches, emotional intelligence, leadership principles, and analyzing, goal setting, planning, and accountability strategies. 

How it Works (Click to view)

We work together through a low-commitment, monthly membership program in either 1:1 personalized coaching conversations or groups. You can attend and participate as little or as much as you’d like, and you’re in  the driver’s seat. You’ll receive materials and exercises each month to focus on one area at a time, and you’re invited to live strategy calls to work through the ideas and apply them in your life and work. Strategy calls are conducted over ZOOM during a 30 or 45-minute time, and if it is a group call, you will receive a link to the recorded session if you cannot attend live, giving you the flexibility to engage at a time that works best for you.

A coaching duration of 3-6 months is recommended for maximum benefit, and you can cancel anytime before the next month’s membership change is processed if you determine you’re no longer interested in participating in this kind of coaching work. You might find that not only is it a great investment in your own wellbeing and growth, but you’ll gain something every month and may benefit for years to come!

Your growth and development, group chats, and our conversations are confidential, with recorded calls shared only among those enrolled in the program, and I follow the ICF Code of Ethics.
