Take a moment and imagine you have made a big change or set of changes you’d really like but haven’t been able to make yet. You are no longer feeling frustrated and exhausted. And you are having the impact you want. What’s that worth to you?

If it really matters, and you’re a leader who is working hard to improve some aspect of our world, click on the icons below to see how executive coaching can support you to get what you want. Together, we will focus on you, how you’re working, and how you are leading others, so that you make the changes you want.

Why consider executive coaching? Because in most cases, it’s not the technology, policy, or program that’s between you and success. It’s our humanness. Your own. Your team’s. Your company or organization’s. And when you can navigate these issues well, it’s smooth sailing.

What’s the change you would like to make?

If you want to make some big changes that have been eluding you, an executive coaching engagement will support you to build your capacity to get meaningful and practical results by:

  • Helping you to get clear on what you really want,
  • Identifying the limiting beliefs and other obstacles that are getting in your way,
  • Replacing limiting beliefs with more empowering thought patterns,
  • Putting together a plan that will take you from where you are to where you want to be, and,
  • Giving you the structure, encouragement, and accountability to take and follow through on the necessary action steps to make your vision a reality- particularly when you are busy, don’t want to do it, don’t feel you can do it, and might just give up.

By doing so, coaching supports you in getting what you most want far more quickly, thoroughly, and cost effectively than might otherwise seem possible. Studies show that on average, coaching produces over a 500% to a nearly 800% Return on Investment.¹

As your coach, I am your ally who is 100% committed to your success. With one-on-one coaching, we typically begin with an initial Discovery session which lasts 2 hours. At that time, you have a chance to discuss your goals for coaching, the issues you would like to explore, what motivates you, and what holds you back. We will then design how we will work together so that the coaching is most powerful for you.

One option available to you as we do our work together is to use a Leadership Circle 360 Profile to assess your leadership. This assessment is the preeminent leadership assessment in the industry and will offer you rich feedback to accelerate your learning. Click for more information about it.

With each week’s coaching session, you decide what you would like coaching on, keeping in mind your goals for our work together, and building from our previous discussions. We then explore the topics together for an hour. While some clients prefer that I coach them in person, most prefer the convenience and flexibility of the telephone. Either way, I typically ask lots of questions, reflect back to you what I am hearing you say, provide you with frameworks, support you in seeing issues from new perspectives, help you align with what you most value, and support you in moving forward. During each session, we co-design the homework that will help you make the most progress toward your goals. Throughout, you will be challenged and supported to be and do what you may not have thought was possible.

What is different about leaders that are flourishing, making a positive difference in multiple ways, doing well financially, and are not out of balance personally or organizationally? In a nutshell, they think differently. Over time, they have developed mental habits that keep them in a creative rather than reactive mode. And this thinking helps them stay strongly connected to the vision that inspires them and the values that support them. It helps them be keenly self aware as they work on clear goals. And it enables them to take action on a consistent basis with both love and courage. Along the way, they stay closely connected to themselves and others, moving forward one step at a time, learning from everything as they go.
