André also coaches individuals who are committed to the environment and are unsatisfied with how quickly they are getting results. He is also a primary curriculum designer for the Six-Month Energy Diet for Business, a six-month group coaching program that takes place over the web. It is designed to teach businesses how to lower their energy use and thus their carbon footprint.
André used to work with businesses as an executive coach just to increase their sales until he saw both the condition of the planet and the possibility the he could lead a more fulfilled life by working to improve it. Now he works with businesses who have a commitment to the planet and their people as well as to their bottom line.
