Where Can You Be More Courageous?
Leadership Development Coaching
In my work with leaders we explore:
- What are the behaviors that best serve and define you as a leader?
- What are the behaviors that contribute to your blind spots and limit you?
- How might you shift your communication to more effectively engender trust and influence outcomes?
- Are there better ways to manage your time in service of long-term objectives?
- Where can you delegate to and develop others to free up your time and energy?
- What legacy would you like to leave and how do your current actions align with that future vision?
I work with organizations who want to invest in their high performers and future leaders to enhance and develop strengths like:
- Executive Presence and Effective Communication
- Emotional Intelligence; increase ability to read others, manage self and influence situations positively
- Build Trusted Relationships
- Public Speaking
- Time & Energy Management
A high performing team drives results, nurtures a positive culture and fuels motivated individuals who feel the opportunity to meet their potential.
A low-performing, dysfunctional team is going to tank all of the above. Humans are complicated and sometimes when we get together to make things happen, we need help.
I work with teams to:
- Build trust
- Have better conversations
- Work with instead of against differences to create more alignment around goals and accountability
We can meet in your office or get out and meet some place with trees. The important thing is that we chat and play with some frameworks to help break open new ways of looking at each other, talking to each other, and moving forward productively.
Women still receive mixed messages and experience unique challenges in the workforce. There is much to be gained in sharing experiences and exploring tools and resources for managing those challenges.
I work to create a safe, open space that enables women to hear, challenge and support each other so we can tackle the issues above and below the surface of their work environments that impact productivity and well-being.
We will explore topics such as:
- Managing bias
- The heightened tension between assertiveness & likeability women contend with
- Executive presence
- Empowering ourselves & each other
- Allies & mentors
Be The Ally
To be a true ally to women and people of color requires commitment and courage.
It necessitates a willingness to unlearn embedded ways of thinking and doing, embrace difficult feedback and conversations, and to step up and commit to changing dynamics in your organization even if it’s uncomfortable and imperfect.
In this workshop we prepare leaders to:
- Recognize behaviors that undermine inclusivity
- Introduce and hold the conversations in which you can learn more about the experiences of all employees
- Introduce and hold the conversations that challenge damaging structures and behaviors in your workplace
An organization needs to receive unified messages from their leaders and this does not happen by accident.
Leaders need a space to:
- Voice and confront the challenges that inhibit transparency and clarity in their communication
- Get clear about objectives and priorities and the ways in which those will be shared
- Align their own values with the direction of their organization
I coach leadership teams so they have both the freedom to own their process and the structure to ensure respectful, diverse communication as they work toward the shared understanding and vision that will help their businesses thrive.
