WHO IS DESIREE COCROFT?
I am not your everyday executive life and leadership coach. No typical goal setting here. I believe our inside world dictates our outside results.
As early as 17 years old, I have always felt the tug to empower others to be the unique and successful person they see in their mind and heart. I started with young children, then teens, then college students, and now leaders and professionals. Although I still adore pouring into young people, my heart is currently with leaders, specifically women of color that have been in leadership for a while and in the fast lane of achievement.
I love helping that group slow down to go fast in the new direction they are called to move into. And in this time of their life, there is not as much to “do”. It is more about who the now want to “be”.
This is not about age. My first business was built at 24. And if we want to get technical, about 3rd grade is when I had a lemonade stand on the weekends lol. I’ve had multiple shifts along the way and each time it was about being aware of who I am and what was possible for me to to possess. And so, I welcome you to position yourself open and ready to receive the life you know you are meant to have.
And I would be honored to have a small part to play in helping you do just that!
