Leadership Coaching

With coaching you’ll gain self-awareness, clarity, and an action plan faster than struggling on your own. A life coach brings an objective, outside perspective; calls out your BS; and provides the support and accountability you need to succeed.

Enhance Your Soft Skills, Expand Your Influence

You’ve been promoted to mid or upper management — Yay! More visibility, more influence, more financial reward — but you now need to show up with executive presence, capably navigate obstacles, and motivate your team as you earn their trust and hold them accountable. It dawns on you that you need growth in some of the required soft skills. One resource to facilitate your growth much quicker than on your own: A coach. Let’s chat.

“Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others.” Carl Sagan

Anyone setting their sights on enhancing their leadership abilities should consider coaching! In our sessions together, I’ll help you to identify the gap between where you are and where you want to be, and partner with you to hone your:

1. Listening skills. Can you hear what’s being said, and unsaid, and respond appropriately? Are you able to adjust your communication to build and maintain connection and trust?

2. Observation skills. How well do you pay attention to people, situations, and environments? Are you seeking information, or defaulting to assumptions?

3. Emotional intelligence. Can you read other people’s emotions and respond appropriately?

4. Time management. Can you hold yourself and your team accountable to norms and deadlines? How well do you delegate? Where are control and perfection sabotaging you?

5. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Can you think outside the box? How open are you to risk and possible missteps? How plagued are you by perfectionism or Imposter Syndrome?

6. Decisiveness. Can you take quick action, despite unknowns and potential consequences?

7. Emotional self-regulation. Do you remain calm under stress? What triggers you? How quickly can you productively channel your thoughts and emotions? Can you delay instant gratification?

8. Influence. Does your team  and higher management convey trust in your vision and judgment?

9. Confident speaking. Can you comfortably share ideas from the stage, in meetings, and in crucial conversations? Can you harness the power of story to influence and motivate target audiences?

10. Character. Have you defined your personal values to guide the above? What are your personal standards of conduct? How are you compounding the strength of your reputation and legacy? 

As your leadership development coach, I’ll help you to refine your communication skills, your ability to handle stress, your confidence in making decisions and handling problems and conflict, your adaptability to change, and the transformational shifts you want to experience in your self-identity, mindset, and behavior patterns.
