As an executive coach and advisor, I have been fortunate over the years to work with some of the most successful business leaders from around the world.
Being a leader in today’s business climate means having the ability to adapt to change at the speed of light: from technological changes, demographic shifts in the workforce, the changing attitudes of customers, disruption, and the pace at which change is occurring.
Today’s leaders must be agile and focused in order to navigate and lead organizations in an environment that is in constant flux. Adaptability and adoptability are the goals my clients seek to reach.
As a management consultant, I have real-world experiences from managing mergers and acquisitions of global organizations to advising fledgling entrepreneurs of start-ups. I understand the challenges you face in today’s marketplace.
I also know all too well the real-life demands of an executive leader because I have been there myself: from working 80+ hour weeks, traveling across time zones, multiple meetings, and the impact that lifestyle can have on your personal life.
That’s why I have created a holistic approach in helping executives find a workable integration between achieving their professional goals while maintaining a vibrant personal life.
I recognize first and foremost that you are a human being with a complex ecosystem of needs and desires. Together we will focus on how much attention you give to your body in terms of nutrition, sleep, exercise, diet, and health, along with any spiritual practice, and your psychological and sociological makeup – all the dimensions that make you human.
Next, I compare those needs to the requirements you need to meet as a leader of your organization and the expectations of stakeholders within the organization.
The third step is to create a framework that will move you through a process of natural transformation in your leadership behavior to help you reach your goals. I help you define your leadership qualities and to answer the questions: What is leadership? How can I achieve conscious governance? How can I integrate conscious discipline into my daily life? Together we explore a custom-made path for you to achieve the level of strategic leadership you desire.
As we move along this path from call to call, meeting to meeting, any number of things can come up in or outside work that we will address so we can continue to make progress.
Life can get messy and obstacles can get in the way. I provide you with tools that help you manage these disruptions without derailing your overall goals.
Ultimately, what you believe and why you believe it affects the way you show up as a leader day to day.
Trust is the basis of any good relationship. That’s why everything you share with me is confidential.
My commitment to you is to show up in a way that is consistent with the advice I give you– being in a responsive, not reactive state to create a sense of trust and safety.
People are not intrinsically bad, but their behavior can be.
In my experience, people want to do their best work and it’s up to the leadership of an organization to create an environment where people can be effective and their best possible selves.
Leaders today must have a high level of compassion and empathy for those who work for them. Historically, what we have sought out leaders for their intellect, but a fundamental shift has occurred from the brain as master to the gut and intuition as master. The brain has taken on a subordinate position. The heart is where intuition and the brain meet.
Conscious leadership is at the core of my coaching method. The “conscious piece” is that leaders must be aware and awake to who they are and how they are showing up to the world so that they, in turn, can empower all other people in their organizations to be conscious, awake and aware. It requires motivation, inquiry and conscious listening.
How do we show up every day? From a place of fear or from trust and love? My leadership work is centered on helping you recognize the value of choosing love and trust, the higher state of consciousness, over fear, the lower state of consciousness and I provide you with helpful tools and resources to meet every challenge from a heart at peace, not war. I help you identify the types of leadership you have embodied and where your strengths and weaknesses lie.
You have talent and a strong skill set – no doubt. What you will discover – beyond those characteristics – is that your heart is the source of your greatest power.
