Notable Client Achievements
Provided coaching to an executive leader to successfully transition into her new role of CEO, optimizing her own skills, talents, personality, so she can authentically and successfully lead her team and organization.
Coached a VP by supporting him in having a deeper level of self-awareness around how he was responding to his circumstances and how that was affecting him, as well as his team and organization. By doing this and realizing he had a choice in how he responds, he recognized he is still in control of the things that matter the most i.e., himself, and by focusing on shifting his own mindset and approach, he could make a bigger impact on others. This, in turn, lowered his stress level, and increased his self-confidence.
Provided coaching to a mid-level manager by helping her to develop her own personal leadership philosophy and values. This helped her team grow in how they collaborate and communicate, and empowered her to unlock so much more potential in her future professional development. This work also helped her to breakthrough how she understood and appreciate her gifts as a leader.
