Leadership Coaching
Explore Your Edge of Genius from the Inside Out
Individual CoachingGroup Coaching

You are talented and have worked hard to gain your expertise, but there is more going on under the surface than others know.

Sharing what’s below the surface is scary or unacceptable or BOTH – especially in the workplace. It can cause you to second-guess your credibility and confidence.

So you stay a safe distance from the edge, safely exploring how to communicate with greater influence and picking up a few pointers along the way.

But that doesn’t allow you to go deep enough to harness your wisdom and consciously catalyze the change you envision.

Working with me is different.

We go deeper and we explore the edges. You’ll explore what’s going on for you in a way you haven’t before. Tapping into your emotional wisdom, you’ll look at the stories you tell yourself with fresh eyes. You’ll hear and see yourself differently. You’ll experiment with using your strengths in new ways to unlock your untapped potential.

I invite you to take inspired action because that’s when permanent shifts start to happen. Change doesn’t happen until action does.

 

And I will be with you every step of the way.

FAQ

What is Leadership Coaching?

This is a collaborative, individual relationship between you and me (your coach). As a leader, you may have responsibility for leading people, projects, or initiatives. I partner with you to bring about sustainable behavioral change so that you may achieve short- and long-term professional and organizational goals.

Who is it for?

Individual coaching is ideal for leaders who feel challenged by their current situation and are ready to do something different to get better results. This is the perfect forum to work on less tangible behaviors such as body language, personal impact, communication style, and influencing skills.

How does it work?
Because coaching is transformative in nature, we’ll work together for a defined period of time. Because you are juggling multiple priorities, I can work remotely with you by phone or videoconference, thereby eliminating travel time, or meet with you in person if you reside in the Metro Detroit/Ann Arbor area.

At the onset of the coaching agreement, you may receive feedback from your manager, peers, direct reports and other stakeholders. I may also conduct interviews with these people or administer a 360° assessment to elicit additional feedback. The feedback is then used to gain valuable insights into your strengths and opportunities for development as well as align organizational goals with personal goals.

In a safe and trusting partnership, you explore blind spots, vulnerabilities, and frustrations. As your coach, I help you connect to your strengths and values in ways that improve your relationships, communication, and leadership presence.

What’s the benefit?

While you will be challenged to try out new behaviors, I help you monitor and measure the effects. You will also make significant progress toward your stated goals – whether that’s taking on a new role, dealing with a difficult relationship, or leading a game-changing initiative.

Here are some examples in which past clients have experienced significant transformation:

  • Increased self-awareness so that you communicate in ways that allow others to hear what you have to say.
  • Boosted level of confidence to speak up about issues that really matter (instead of staying silent).
  • Decreased feelings of frustration by integrating new leadership skills to navigate ambiguous, fast-paced & ever-changing environments.
