Executive Leadership Coaching

Executive Coaching is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that is aimed at creating awareness, generating action, and facilitating learning and growth.

I engage clients in substantive, thoughtful conversations about their challenges and opportunities. It’s about questioning their answers and proposed plans rather than giving answers.

If you become a client, you will have a coach that is an attentive listener that seeks to understand, believes in you, and is committed to your success. You will expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests, acknowledge your achievements, and guarantee complete confidentiality.

Executive coaches are often brought into organizations to work with:

  • ​High potentials who need additional support to reach the next level
  • Managers who are valuable to the company but have key performance issues to address
  • Executives who have been recently hired or promoted and need to make an immediate impact
