“You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.”

Who Benefits From Executive/Leadership Coaching

  • Clients benefit both in their work and personal life.  When leaders shift their behaviors to improve their work performance, research has shown that those behaviors often cascade across the organization, resulting in shifts in organizational productivity and positive culture changes.
  • In our fast changing world today, there is need for resilient, authentic, and creative conscious leadership at all levels in organizations.  Many people believe that coaching is only for employees who have performance challenges.  However, over half of my clients are leaders who have achieved high levels of success and who desire to continue to learn and grow.
  • Executive coaching involves working with clients to leverage their strengths and understand their behavior patterns that get in the way of increasing their value, influence, impact, and contribution.  Some common coaching benefits are as follows:
    • To adapt quickly to change and to lead successfully in challenging times.
    • To authentically communicate a compelling vision and inspire others to achieve that vision. 
    • To create a stronger leadership presence.
    • To understand your best strengths and how to leverage them with confidence.
    • To learn how to take conscious and courageous action in making tough decisions and in managing conflict.
    • To inspire positive change across your organization.
    • To develop an authentic communication style that builds unity across your organization (speaking, listening, writing, and non-verbal).
    • To master self-awareness and increase your focus and manage our priorities.
    • To improve your mentoring skills to attract and retain top talent.
    • To strengthen your emotional intelligence.
    • To strengthen your ability to manage conflicting priorities, manage plans effectively, and hold staff accountable.

Addressing Performance Concerns

 Involves a development plan to assess what the client does well and identify performance improvement opportunities.  I work with your and your manager to assist you to correct identified performance concerns that are holding you back in your career. This can include the following:

  • Individuals who are in line for a promotion or succession planning and need to build or improve personal skills to move forward.
  • Individuals who are moving up rapidly in their organization and need to improve specific management/leadership skills.
  • Individuals who need to develop skills or improve behaviors to address specific performance concerns such as:
    • Overall productivity and effectiveness (focus, time management, delegation etc.)
    • Decision-making skills.
    • Manage in highly stressful environments.
    • Handle difficult conversations and transform conflict.
    • Interpersonal communication.
    • Self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.
    • Handing setbacks and building the capacity to take risks and recover quickly.
    • Effectively balance priorities between work and personal life.

Professional Renewal

Employee burnout is increasing in corporate environments and can impact productivity, creativity, team performance, and our personal lives.  Often, only a short period of time working with clients can create success to:

  • Rekindle your sense of passion, meaning, and purpose.
  • Recognize your sources of resilience, confidence, and balance in the midst of stressful and challenging work environments.
  • Maintain a positive outlook during position or career changes.
  • Exploring and securing new paths position changes or retirement transition.
