Individualized coaching 

Weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly coaching are most common, but of course we will customize your package to suit your needs. For example, new principals often begin with bi-weekly sessions for 1-2 months and then move to monthly coaching. 

These packages start at $200 for 1-hour sessions that fit into your schedule. 

A regular day and time!

Learning more about particular strategies and situational leadership is fantastic, but monthly or bi-weekly coaching is the best way to steadily improve the trajectory of your leadership journey and cement lasting long-term success.

2. The coach will contact you and arrange a first session.

3. You'll discuss goals, get an orientation to the agendas we make for you, and see how our Always Agenda works. You and your coach will choose future dates and times together. 

For example, the first Wednesday of each month at 9 AM EST.

4. After a few sessions, you will feel and see the results AND completely be in a routine.

Rhae-Ann Holoien


As a Superintendent, the term Warm Demander spoke to my heart as well as my vision of how I want to lead a learning organization. I strive to be a leader who is compassionate, constructive, and courageous. Their mantra supports my work, beliefs, and values and allows me to learn and be more efficient at the same time.

I appreciate that when working with the Warm Demanders, I feel that time and efficiency have been gifted to me. Warm Demanders has allowed me to build my technology skills. The lessons that they teach me, I am able to pass to those whom I work with so everyone benefits. The process ensures that I can be a tour guide who works elbow to elbow with staff as we learn together. We go farther when we go together and I appreciate the support from Warm Demanders as they have expertise in leadership, technology, and efficiencies. Their growth mindset and pay-it-forward approach reassure me as we customize our sessions together.

Shannon Hahn


Whenever I meet with Aubrey, I always know that something special is going to happen. I leave our virtual sessions re-energized, passionate, and with a task that is directly connected to the question I started our coaching session with.

When working with students, I always want them to feel excited about their learning and ready for the next challenge. As an adult learner, that is exactly what happens for me whenever I meet with Aubrey. It is the best professional learning I have ever been a part of!

Katrin Heim

Innovation Coach

In the time that I have worked with Danielle, I have developed a number of skills that continue to support me in my role as Innovation Coach with Buffalo Trail Public Schools. My ability to coach others improved because I now engage with greater awareness, intention, and understanding of various perspectives that contribute to the complexity of educational contexts.

I continue to explore practical opportunities to improve strategic planning and communication when leading division wide professional learning for teachers and school leaders. 

Rommel Loria

Head of Middle School

As the leader of a middle school, I hope to build a professional environment where faculty and staff feel respected and connected and collaboration drives change and innovation. I have learned from Aubrey that those abstract goals can be achieved through systems. A simple agenda spreadsheet can allow for scheduling a promising idea for a future faculty meeting. Regular brief individual meetings with structure can surface ideas and allow space for folks to be heard.

There’s so much to learn, and I’m thankful to be connected with Aubrey who helps connect management tools with the leadership qualities I aspire to.

Heather Rentz

Innovation Coach

Words can not express how empowering and motivating Danielle has been as a coach and a mentor. Her expertise, support, and willingness to share her own experiences, while always actively listening, are all qualities that have brought me to where I am today as an educational leader.

The time we have spent together has been truly invaluable.

Susan Barton

Technology Coach

When working with Aubrey, he always makes me feel recognized for my work and while encouraging me to try new things.  When giving advice, he focuses on my strengths and helps me make things very manageable, exciting, and ready to use immediately.
