Leadership Coaching

Leadership might be the greatest untapped potential in an organization. Effective leadership has the capacity to move people and processes forward, address difficult challenges, and inspire people to do the hard work. The challenge is that leadership does not happen naturally. It’s not a skill set you are born with or something that appears when you get promoted into a higher role. Effective leadership is a practice that requires mastery, focus, and intention. Similar to elite athletes who have mastered their craft, high performance is enhanced through precision and attention to details that matter. It requires you to be pushed and challenged, to receive feedback. The best leaders are coached by top coaches.

My unique coaching method integrates the best in leadership theory with psychology, systems thinking, and high-performance concepts. It begins with the self, and is anchored in an understanding of how we humans behave, how our systems impact our work, and how organizations operate.

Organizational Leaders

The higher you are in an organization, the more your people expect you to display integrity, agility and courage. Problems are complex, understanding context is a must, and your ability to meet people where they are is paramount. You are expected to make the difficult decisions, resolve conflicts, and set the tone for culture. These tasks require reflection, awareness and perspective, and an effective coach will both support you in your journey and push you to become better.

Athletes & Sports Coaches

Sport coaches have to develop both skill and strategy for their sport, make quick decisions, manage the relationships between players and their staff and hold on to the larger vision of their program.

Sport teams are surrounded by dynamics that impact performance, and sport coaches benefit from leadership coaching to ensure they develop their own skills around leading and managing their team.

Coaching for Youth & Teens

More than ever, youth and teens are faced with challenges that create anxiety, stress, and discontent. Young adults need support to develop a strong sense of self, learn effective ways to navigate relationships, and develop strong boundaries to keep them emotionally safe. Not all kids need a therapist, yet the support of a coach who understands what they are going through and can help them develop the skills needed for adulthood can make all the difference.

Life Coaching

Life is messy and complex for all of us, and whether you have a formal leadership role, or not, we all want to live as our best self. I believe that everyone does leadership, and we all need to learn how to do it well. Additionally, brave leadership is a lifestyle and living in alignment with our values, setting boundaries, and having the real and hard conversations take practice. If you need a reboot, want to push your personal growing edge, or want to live a more courageous life, coaching is a great option.

How to Choose your Coach

Selecting a coach is an investment and a difficult process. You want to feel some chemistry with your coach, feel like you ‘click’, yet you don’t want a person who only tells you what you want to hear and validates all your moves. You don’t want to base your choice on a fancy resumé or education, but a deeper level of understanding, experience, and methodology. It’s less important that your coach has worked in your field or has experienced the same challenges that you currently face and more important that their mindset and approach to leadership development resonates with you and that you feel aligned with the possible outcomes and development path your coach will take you.

A good coach will push you to your edge without letting you fall over. They won’t tell you what to do or give you advice, but will ask you the right questions so you can come to the clarity you need. They won’t be your advocate, but will be your ally as you journey outside your comfort zone to grow your capacity. A good coach will have done their own work and you will be able to feel their authenticity and self-awareness through your connection.
