Are you in a leadership position and want a trusted, unbiased partner that can understand the personal and professional challenges you face and support you in finding the answers you are looking for? Leaders need someone they can trust when they are making decisions about their leadership effectiveness, their career choices, and how they bring who they are into their leadership role. If you’re a leader who is struggling with these issues, I can be your trusted partner.
I'm the founder and owner of Courageous Leadership Coaching. I have been a leadership coach and developer for over 20 years and was in leadership positions for 20 years prior to that. In 1993 I created a leadership institute that has graduated over 700 leaders from private, non-profit and public organizations. From this experience I have learned that leadership can be lonely, stressful and self- doubting. It is often easier for a leader to make decisions for their organization or other people then for themselves. As your trusted partner, I listen as you ask yourself the hard questions and help guide you to the answers that are right for you. You do not have to give up who you are or what you love in order to be an efffective leader. My coaching focuses on how you bring yourself fully and successfully into your leadership role. My only agenda is your success.
Janice offered me insight, practical exercises, and much compassion as I worked through my first couple years of leading Maine's largest environmental advocacy organization. She provided an outlet for my anxieties and was a cheerleader for my strengths. I did a better job as a result of both.Lisa Pohlmann
