1 on 1 Coaching

Discover who you really are, what you are here to create, and what's in your way with life & career coach Peter Schulte.

Welcome! I'm Peter Schulte.
I'm a coach for purpose-driven leaders.

I help purpose-driven leaders tap into their innate genius, walk their authentic path, and make their deepest contribution to the greater good.

What we can work on together

I'm here to be your thought partner, sounding board, guide, and confidante as you dream up the life and career that makes you feel your most alive and authentic.

  1. Cultivate purpose, balance, and peace in your existing roles & relationships
  2. Transition into a new chapter of your life or career that better expresses your passions, gifts, and values
  3. Unearth, embrace, and embody who you really are and what you are here to do

A few specific exercises I offer

  • Experience your unique creative essence
  • Disidentify from your core limiting beliefs
  • Acknowledge and deconstruct your toxic, shadow behaviors
  • Craft a powerful purpose statement that offers you clarity and focus
  • Identify and eliminate non-essential roles, projects, and obligations
  • Envision the life path that you can fall most deeply in love with

Your first session is free! Let's chat and see what we might create together. No pressure. No hard sell.

Support for purpose-driven organizations

In addition to coaching purpose-driven individuals, I also support purpose-driven organizations. This work can include:

  1. 1 on 1 coaching for the organization's employees
  2. Helping the organization itself:
    • Gain focus and cohesion through claiming and enacting its social purpose
    • Eliminate non-essential products, projects, services, and processes
    • Declare and operationalize its core values
    • Foster an organizational culture that promotes engagement and creativity
    • Connect employees' individual purposes to the organization's purpose


"I have been privileged to work with multiple coaches throughout my career, so I don’t say this without perspective: Peter is a remarkable coach. He brings a rare balance of deep understanding of human behavior and leadership dynamics, coupled with an empathetic and supportive coaching style."
— Maren Keeley, Founder & Co-CEO, Handprint
"In the short four one-hour coaching sessions with Peter I have had profound breakthroughs that I have spent years in therapy attempting to gain. I really appreciate the openness and non-judgmental coaching style that he provides; it allowed me to really be open to myself to dig deeper into what I didn’t know I was seeking, which was self-love, clarity and a sense of self understanding."
— Amber Leger, Mni Sota Fund
"I've worked with at least five different coaches over the years. I can confidently say that Peter has been in the top tier of my experiences. His reflections back to me of what I'm working through are crystal clear - clearer than I've ever experienced with a coach. He's empathetic and connected in his coaching, but also with a healthy level of challenge of my perspective and invitation to explore other perspectives. Coaching with Peter has been well worth the investment for me."
— Cameron Miller, Chief Executive of Business Strategy & Innovation, Non-GMO Project

About Peter Schulte

For the first decade-plus of my career, I worked in the non-profit sector collaborating with the United Nations and some of the world's largest companies on corporate sustainability practices for water and climate. I have a B.S. in Conservation & Resource Studies and B.A. in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Berkeley and an MBA in Sustainable Systems from Presidio Graduate School.

I'm now the founder & Executive Director of 501c3 nonprofit Spark of Genius and a life coach supporting aspiring change leaders. I also recently co-founded Bellingham Men's Circle.

I live in Bellingham, WA USA on the lands of the Lummi & Nooksack peoples with my partner Sara, children Owen and Asa, and cat Winnie. I like to sing, play guitar and piano, write songs and explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest and beyond. I'm (slowly) writing a book called Humanity Is Beautiful: A New Story For A World On Fire.

I use either he or they pronouns.

Coaching Scholarships

Many of those who could most benefit from and leverage coaching for the greater good are not able to afford it. Our Emerging Leaders Scholarship Fund offers our coaching services at reduced rates for those with a compelling vision for social change but limited means. Priority is given to those from marginalized communities or identities.
