Who We Are
Welcome to our web site! Whether you landed here as a search result or pointed your browser here, thank you for your visit.I am Jerry Brimeyer, Sidecar Coach. My focus is LifeLeadershp Coaching.If you are unfamiliar with coaching, this is how it's described by the International Coach Federation, the organization that many of the world's coaches belong to:
The ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.
Sidecar Coaching is like having a trusted and trusting companion riding along, pointing to things you don't see alone, knowing you, revealing your wisdom to you, pouring sunshine on the path to bring clarity, seeing you and what you want and where you are going, poking you when you let your ride become everyone else's race.LifeLeadership Coaching is the niche I work in. Having been in leadership roles for thirty-seven years, and in coaching for nineteen, I've gained diverse experience in helping people inside and outside of organizations to step forward into their leadership potential. In organizations, I work with current leaders or those preparing to move into leadership, and help them find their true leadership voice which arises from their own authenticity and values. The most significant component is expanding those competencies that allow sincere, deep human connection to occur.

I am Jerry Brimeyer, Sidecar Coach.I’m married, father of two daughters and three granddaughters, and – by the numbers - well into the second half-century of my life. And those things are listed in the proper order. I live in the Heartland, in Des Moines, Iowa.A few of the core beliefs that nest in my soul: I steadfastly believe in the magnificence in every human being. And I know the Universe to be an immensely good, nourishing and amazingly informing place.I have been coaching for nineteen years. My undergraduate degree is in Psychology and my MA is in Educational Counseling. I completed my coach certification training through the Coaches Training Institute, achieving the Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) designation. I also have earned the International Coach Federation designation of Associate Certified Coach (ACC).I am extremely pleased, and blessed, to be able to coach people all over North America, and to have delivered workshops and presentations throughout the U.S. and in Canada.My approach to coaching is a very co-active one. The client and I are in collaboration as we move things forward toward their wanted goals. All the while, the client deepens the self-awareness, self-discovery, and learning that becomes part of that journey. I see my role, as the coach, is to pour sunshine on the path for the client to become more than is possible. As that happens over the course of several sessions, the client starts standing in a different place of accomplishment, balance, purpose and aliveness.Please contact me for a free thirty minute sample coaching session to see how this Sidecar Coaching feels and what the fit is.
"It is hard to put into words what tremendous benefits I have gained, in all aspects of my life, through my coaching relationship with Jerry.
Jerry helped me gain the self-confidence to succeed in the workplace. Obviously I thought I would get something out of this relationship or I would not have entered into it. But I never imagined it would be this powerful or positive. He empowered me to find within myself the strength to become the person I wanted to be, but never believed I could.I highly recommend Jerry Brimeyer and his coaching abilities."

"Jerry Brimeyer is an amazing coach! One of Jerry's best qualities is that he really listens openly without judgment. He created a very safe environment for me to be open and honest. Not only does he hear what I say, but what I do not say. He could detect my hidden emotions that I was not even aware of myself. He used a variety of techniques to help open my mind and to consider other possibilities. Jerry has a wealth of compassion, but is firm when he needs to be. Through our coaching, I came to realize that I can say NO without regrets. This has been very empowering for me. Now my yes's mean yes and my no's mean no. Thank you Jerry for helping me to look into the darkness and find my own light."

"Trust, focus, and a heightened sense of intuition are the unique gifts that Jerry brings to coaching. In my coaching sessions with Jerry, he would first ask me where I want to go, and then gently guide me there. He helped me develop and achieve leadership and personal goals while cultivating my own sense of value: my strengths, my talents, and my inner trust of what’s right for me based on my authentic self. Jerry was always reflective, never directive, and truly committed to wanting me to be the very best that I can be." - M, Texas

"Jerry is the most sincere, honest, and loyal coach I know. He brings unconditional compassion to the coaching relationship and creates a safe place for the client to explore what’s on their mind, while gently pushing them to grow and reach beyond what they thought was their limit. Jerry listens with his whole heart and being, and he empathically shares the client’s enthusiasm when there is cause to celebrate, and stays with the client when they are feeling stuck. I strongly recommend Jerry as a coach who is full of integrity and zest for life.” - M., Minnesota
