Take coaching is about YOU, not me.
Do you dread going to work each day? Are you not using your talents and skills at work? Have you been passed over for promotion? Is your company not aligned with your values? Do you struggle to motivate your team? Are you mid-career and sick of what you are doing but don't know what to do next?
After 30 years, in the corporate world, in a job that sucked the energy from me, I dared to start over.
I have a passion and desire to bring value and insight to support you from what is to where you want to be. My proven coaching program, with assessments and virtual one on one coaching calls, will help you identify your values, what motivates you, what your communication style is, and how you can find meaning and purpose at work. You will identify small action steps and experiments to move forward. My clients have learned how to advocate for themselves, gained increased confidence to speak their truth to power, create jobs for themselves that didn't exist, and be happy. They get results if they are willing to put in the work. Change is hard.
With over 30 years in business operations, primarily in the finance role, I understand the challenges of managers and leaders. I've seen the drive for bottom-line results in demoralizing employees. Unclear goals confuse leaders. Poor communication or not understanding another point of view cripples effectiveness. Many leaders do not possess executive presence.
I have the experience, education, and expertise to assist you in transforming your life. I was a senior leader in a multi-unit corporation, working with managers in all departments. I received my Masters in Organizational Development and Leadership from St. Joseph's University. I am a certified professional coach and an active member of the International Coaching Federation. I am a Fellow Coach with BetterUp, a company that provides coaching to employees ranging from IC to C-Suite in significant corporations.

When I started coaching I was overwhelmed with everything I needed to do. I just began leading a new team and struggled with time management. As a result of coaching, I've been able to focus on tasks that will improve my output and help me lead my team in the right direction instead of reacting to every situation. With increased confidence in myself, I have significantly moved a project forward with very complex interdependencies and convinced senior management of the best path forward. I have learned the importance of setting clear messaging for projects.Mindy
I was working 10-16 hours a day in my consulting firm. No matter what I couldn't seem to get ahead with constantly worrying about what other people think. I've grown to understand and acknowledge how often I am doubting myself or thinking negatively about a potential outcome and where I am causing additional stress to myself by deferring tasks and letting them build up. I was able to let go and delegate a lot of what I was going myself, and work less. I'm better able to support my team through difficult circumstances.Kristin
I developed skills to make it easier to handle difficult discussions as I practiced some and prepared for them with my coach I approach decision making differently with more confidence and assertiveness.Ester
Working with my coach, I've learned more about myself, and am taking more of a leadership approach rather than a doing approach I've received honest feedback, helpful insights, considered alternative actions, received great information resources to support the journey I've created more work-life balance and increased m problem-solving skills for the organization, especially in light of the current global pandemic.Kathy
I've become a lot more clear about my likelihood and interest in staying with my current organization. Coaching has helped me to confirm my feelings on this. I've grown to understand and acknowledge how often I am doubting myself or thinking negatively about a potential outcome and where I am causing additional stress to myself by deferring tasks and letting them build up.Jessie
