Business, Leadership, & Executive Coaching
My coaching is fast-paced: I take a no-holds-barred approach to helping people identify and resolve what is holding them back so that they can move forward quickly.
I help high-achievers craft sustainable, joyful lives as leaders. We work together to transform the way that they manage the stress of their careers and the pressure of their busy lives. My clients improve the way they influence, motivate, and communicate with the people around them — and that dramatically shifts the way they lead and manage others.
Areas of Expertise:
- Habit development and goal setting
- Energy and attention management
- Stress management and work/life balance
- Resilience, happiness, and well-being
- Overcoming “imposter syndrome”
- Authentic and courageous leadership
Women in Leadership
I have coached hundreds of women in leadership roles, from school principles to CEOs to new managers.
Women have always faced a unique set of challenges in the workplace. They are often held to higher standards than their male counterparts. They frequently feel reluctant to “toot their own horn,” for fear of coming off as arrogant, but then are disappointed when others fail to notice their achievements. And many high-achieving women needlessly suffer from “imposter syndrome.”
At the same time, women must fight persistent gender stereotypes and manage many — sometimes conflicting — roles at home and at work. Unfortunately, research is showing that the global pandemic is adding additional stressors to working women.
I teach my clients how to be confident without feeling phony, to take risks and step into the limelight, to balance their work with their personal lives, and to see all the ways in which they are already doing enough.
Sustaining High Performance
Leading during these uncertain times requires a special skillset.
Living with uncertainty is hard. Human beings crave information about the future in the same way we crave food, sex, and other primary rewards. Our brains perceive ambiguity as a threat, and they try to protect us by diminishing our ability to focus on anything other than creating certainty.
In difficult times like these, effective leaders don’t have all the answers. But they do stand out for their presence, their focus on desired outcomes, and their ability to find meaning amidst the chaos. Research shows that leaders who trust and empower others, for example, have the most productive, creative, and high-functioning teams. They get results.
