Do you relate to these scenarios? You are ready to move to the next level in the organization and know that you need to ramp up your leadership skills. You’re not sure what that means or how to go about getting to the next level. You’re reviewing your career so that you determine what’s next but you find the process tough to do for yourself. The landscape has changed since you first began your career and you aren’t sure what’s right for you at this stage. You have stretch goals to achieve in the next year and you want to make sure you hit them- maybe even exceed them. You want to make sure you have a clear plan, specific accountabilities and an unambiguous focus.

Executive coaches work with leaders to cultivate and enhance the skill sets required to you’re your successful leadership to the next level. We align your goals and focus on measurable outcomes. We work with organizations to help them to identify and develop “high potential” talent and ensure they’re on a path to success.
The First Hundred Days
Experts have found that over half of newly hired executives fail in the first two years. The key factor is their failure to build proper relationships. The second factor is failure of role clarity and the third factor is fitting into the corporate culture. Sometimes an executive’s idea of an early success does not with the organization’s. I can help an executive be clear and specific about the new role, organizational expectations and measures of success. This ensures that he/she starts with a firm foundation.
Career Transition and Change
What’s next for you? Executives are often so absorbed in what they’re doing that they don’t think about this until it’s upon them. When that happens, there is a reaction to quickly assess the opportunity or situation. This is when you can most benefit from the clear structure and process that coaching provides. I will assess your skills, strengths and development opportunities. I will help you to define your career goals, ideal position, and ideal organizational fit and culture.
Transition to Retirement and Entrepreneurial Options

Shifting team members from competitiveness, to mutual trust and respect, is paramount to successful completion of business goals.

The power of the group to inspire and motivate has been proven time and again. Group coaching is an intimate conversation space, focused on goal setting, deepening awareness around key issues, taking action, and accountability. In a peer learning context, group members explore their issues and benefit from the wisdom of the group members and the benefit of the structure and process of coaching. The coach serves as a guide and mentor for the group, focusing on action and accountability and ensuring respect for the process. Over time, relationships form and each member’s network expands.
