Organizations are facing disruptive change, requiring a vastly different skill set and approach in their leaders. We work with the organization and the executive to understand what is important, then develop and implement an action plan.
Transformative leaders must be self-aware, emotionally intelligent and operationally effective. Coaching helps them understand their environment and assists them navigate and maximize their effectiveness and the impact they have. Using a combination of proven tools and concepts, along with a great deal of personal experience, your coach supports you in a one-on-one strategic relationship as you deal with complexity and the future.
My coaching philosophy is to be a partner who can support and guide an individual in dealing with intricate issues, bring depth and focus to specific challenges, help them define goals, and support them as they arrive at the solutions. Honest, open communications are required for success, along with respect for other’s ideas, perspectives, time and commitments. Confidentiality and trust are the foundations for successful coaching.
Our coaching process includes psychometrics tools, in-depth interviews and customized exercises.

In questions as straightforward as a hiring decision, or as complicated as how to enhance the management team’s effectiveness, we have the ability to provide the framework for an organization’s selection and development efforts. Whether it is cultural change, assimilation of acquired organizations, significant expansion, turnarounds or a strategic change in direction, our assessment process helps organizations better understand their leadership capabilities, strengths and gaps and prepare for the talent needs of the future.
Assessment tools are an important aspect of Talent Management. Using them as an integral part of the talent management process increases the probability of attracting or promoting people who fit the position, culture and future, reducing risk of failure.
