Consistently performing at the top of your potential.

What would your future look like filled with visions turned into reality?  But here's the truth: you may struggle with discipline, following through on goals, and self-sabotage. It's making you question if achieving your dreams is even possible or if it's worth pursuing at all.  It's time to change that narrative and seize control of your journey. Believe in your self and create the future you deserve.

Safe Space

Coaching provides a safe, non-judgmental space where you can authentically explore your innermost self, while receiving guidance and support to uncover new pathways that lead to greater clarity, confidence, and the achievement of your goals.

Areas of Specialization

While I work with anyone willing to commit to the coaching process, I specialize in working with former athletes (college or pro) and members of underserved communities, focusing on building self-discipline/habits/mindset and
career development/transitions.

Active Partnership

This is an active partnership that will help you move forward in reaching your goals. Professional coaching is not therapy or a deep dive into your past - it's a safe space for you to be yourself and achieve your goals with more clarity and confidence moving forward.

About Matt Darby

After retiring from the NFL, my passion for coaching began while I was earning a Co-Active Coaching Fundamentals  Certificate from the Co-Active Training Institute in 2006. Since then, I've been utilizing coaching techniques to support others in their pursuit of personal and  career development. I'm driven by a strong work ethic, unwavering dedication to personal growth, and the ability to strategize. My coaching style is built upon best coaching practices combined with critical thinking, self-discipline, and systems thinking.
