Part of being in the career hot seat is dealing with the unknown. Making the tough decisions. Powering through unforeseen obstacles and unexpected failures. And through all of this, in my practice, many leaders have confidentially shared “It’s lonely at the top.”
You are not alone.
A 2013 study by the Stanford Business School found that nearly two-thirds of CEOs don’t receive executive coaching or leadership development. And almost half of senior executives in general aren’t receiving any, either. Paradoxically, nearly 100 percent said they would like coaching to enhance their development, as both Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Forbes reported in recent articles.
As your coach…
I have deep passion for helping others reach their potential. I didn’t just wake up one day and decide to hang out a coaching shingle. I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has dedicated my career to helping people craft professional and personal lives that they love, from the inside out. For more than 25 years I have coached senior executives; from organizational leaders of global Fortune 50 companies, to owner entrepreneurs charting the course for family-owned business, to maverick leaders of some of the most exciting startups today. What I really love is working with leaders who are realizing the competitive advantage of learning and developing.
What I do Specifically
I partner with my clients to learn about the ways they may unknowingly be getting in their own way. These insights are then complemented with practices to overcome barriers to their career effectiveness and overall happiness.
With business and organizational teams, I draw on my years of interpersonal group process experience to design and facilitate team-building sessions that enable team members to take an honest look at themselves and the dynamics of their situation. The results are greater trust, collaboration, and team momentum and efficiency.
When not working with individual clients or teams, I offer leadership and other growth related trainings around the world. I especially enjoy working with members of the Young Presidents’ Organization – an outstanding global network of young chief executives and their families.
What’s my niche?
My clients will tell you that I see them as unique individuals. In order to assure traction, I combine a practical, goal-based coaching program with more in-depth personal development work. The balancing of these twin pillars always depends on the client, the engagement, and what they’re most wanting and needing to change.
If you are ready to invest in taking your game to the next level, tackle the next big thing, or help your team take steps into greater trust and effectiveness, let’s discuss how I can help.
