Tim A. O’Connor, M.P.A., M.S.
I have worked with hundreds of employees, family members, and loved-ones, having experienced and transformed their lives after traumatic circumstances. My broad range of experiences, include meeting with European police managers in Helsinki, Finland collaborating on strategies to work with diverse community members and refugees and in meetings with Rwandan officials and villagers in and around Kigali, Rwanda, exploring ways to empower individuals and communities after genocide.
My background as a police manager working with employees involved in organization change, persons involved in criminal investigations, and as a transpersonal clinical therapist with persons traumatized by catastrophic events has deepened my insight into the formation of limiting beliefs and the development of empowering beliefs as a person or group works through or processes a dark or transformational period in their life or organization and emerges with clarity, harmony, and commitment.
We align with the Power within, anchor in Truth, and act based on unifying principles
You can re-train yourself by intuitively responding from an inner depth within your centered self, where core beliefs, values, goals, and inner vision have aligned with Wisdom, Clarity, Balance, Peace, Unity, and Love, unifying principles that develop your character as a principled leader.
I trained as a professional coach (C.P.C.) through The Fowler Wainwright International Institute of Professional Coaching. The founders of that institute are Berry Fowler, founder and former chairman of Sylvan Learning Centers, and Barbara Wainwright, former Worldwide President of Certified Coaches Federation. They use NLP techniques. I am certified as a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)through the American Union of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (AUNLP).
I also trained as a Practitioner (R.Sc.P.) or Spiritual Coach through Centers for Spiritual Living, an international organization with about 400 spiritual centers located across the United States and in 30 countries around the globe. I am no longer licensed through Centers for Spiritual Living.
I hold a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University and a Master of Public Administration from California State University, San Bernardino.
In addition, I also received training from The Awareness Institute on Mindfulness Meditation, facilitated by practitioners of Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
I retired as a police lieutenant having served in the capacity of investigations commander, watch commander and in research and development with an expertise in child abuse/death investigations, strategic planning, and program evaluation.
