Executive and Leadership Coaching
Leaders, often seen as visionaries because they can’t help but think outside “the box,” have immense passion and place value on effecting positive change. They care deeply about making a difference in their lifetime. They know that it all begins with leading in their own lives, in their immediate family relationships and most importantly, in their relationship with themselves. Leading by example.
In the words of my extraordinary teacher and profound visionary, Dave Ellis, leadership begins with one’s ability to “self-reflect and self-direct”. One way to stay accountable and productive is to have a highly skilled and trained coach. Much of my work lies in “polishing up” a leader’s keen self-awareness and clear vision to stay their course.
In my experience, leaders extend themselves far and wide in an effort to be of service to others and to organizations—for instance, sitting on several boards at once. Sadly and not uncommonly, this behavior of overextending can exhaust even the very best of them, leaving a powerful vision unrealized. Health and familial relationships also become depleted and out of balance.
With me as your coach, I will be sure to hold the vision that brings tears to your eyes and zip to your step and provide objective and really, clinical, feedback regarding shedding commitments that are not pointed in that direction. Together, we will create powerful goals and realize dreams in a timely fashion.
It is crucial for a leader to take “charge” of his/her life, by recognizing their strengths, limitations and the impact of distractions from their path. This level of commitment and mindfulness is unique to many leaders’ who when they recognize they need reinforcement, hire a coach!
