This is the centerpiece of my coaching and what I focus on the most. I offer customized and focused leadership engagements based on transformational change in leader behaviors for those in senior leadership positions, or those who foresee being in a senior leadership position in the near future. These engagements are typically long-term, from 9-12 months. Many people want to change the way they lead, but few actually do. This is because change is hard and we need help. Help comes in the form of a proven, powerful process involving stakeholders who will benefit directly from the changes the leader makes and a "personal trainer" who helps you stay focused and ultimately find success in the process. This approach can help improve current leadership, develop promising talent, prepare new senior leadership, and form the centerpiece of a leadership succession plan. This is a powerful program that does get results. Examples of coaching results The most worked on leadership skills
Leadership Coaching: Bi-weekly sessions
Sometimes a long-term coaching program might not be what is needed. Thus, I also provide one on one coaching services which entail bi-weekly or monthly calls where we discuss your leadership or personal challenges and work through goals together. Many people have one or two issue they are struggling to overcome or understand, situations which need an outside perspective. The costs to not finding perspective can be wasted time and money, not to mention the cost in emotional and cognitive stress. I will facilitate a powerful conversation that helps you work through a current issue or topic. This is great for those who want a consistent and steady interaction with a trusted partner to meet the inevitable challenges life throws your way. We can assess your situation and establish reachable goals, then work through those goals. I provide accountability and focus as well as the occasional gentle nudge to keep working! I have a wide area of expertise in management, leadership, and interpersonal relationships. If you are curious if this is right for you, let's set up a call and chat.
Many people need a trusted advisor who they can count on to "tell them what they need to hear". I have various areas of expertise and experience which might be helpful to those who need a partner to bounce ideas off, explore opportunities, and discuss options. Many people can save time and money by simply seeking the advice of someone they trust who does not have a vested interest in the outcome of the decision or situation. This is the case where a person needs direct, candid advice. This can be a very valuable and cost-effective approach to problem solving and decision making. What are you currently concerned with that is causing you to lose sleep, and what would it be worth to you to put it behind you? If something immediately comes to mind, let's discuss how I can help.
Talks and Training
I give talks on a wide variety of topics, such as negotiations, conflict resolution, organizational leadership, culture, teams, humble leadership, and related areas. I have dozens of previous speaking engagements in both academic and public settings in front of many different audiences.
