Notable Client Achievements
Coached professionals at BDO and PWC to be stronger leaders utilizing a servant leadership style by focusing on their teams to improve their relationships and build trust with their staff resulting in increased team performance. I drew on my public accounting experience to understand the pressures the clients experienced.
Coached and worked with a Senior Engineering Manager at Salesforce to achieve his goals of having an executive presence, better relationships with his team, improving communication skills with others, being a coach leader, and improving his home life which resulted in his superiors noting a significant change in him. He stated that our coaching has been life-changing for him.
Coached a President of a $2 billion dollar health care system to find new perspectives on how to face the numerous challenges he faced including HR issues with a surgeon group, navigating political issues within the organization, reducing stress, showing empathy for himself and others, and reflecting on what is truly important at his stage in life.
Coached a Senior Leader with FedEX that was struggling between his work life and personal life as a Church Deacon. He felt that he had to keep his two lives completely separate and it was causing him tremendous stress both at work and home. Throughout the 6-month coaching journey, he realized that the skills he had as a Deacon could be utilized and benefit his interactions with others at work by introducing his religious beliefs. His relationships with others at work changed significantly by developing a coach/mentor leadership style, strengthening his emotional intelligence, listening skills, and communication style, showing more empathy for himself and others, and serving his teams like he served others as a Deacon creating harmony with his personal and business life.
