Coaching & Strategy
"I'm lonely at the top."
let's work together.
Even with the best team in the world, being the boss is isolating. That's where I enter. Go ahead: vent, raise concerns, think out loud, and float wild ideas. It's all confidential. I will be your sounding board, I will give you honest feedback, and I will care about you and your organization. As it fits, I will also help you uncover the perspectives you most need to hear from your team. You will love having a trusted thought partner and such a highly flexible resource.
"I'm worried about our office culture."
Let's transform it into an ASSET.
Strengthening culture is the single best investment that execs can make for a heathy, competitive organization. It impacts every aspect of the work - from end-deliverables, to HR, to legal liability, to work satisfaction, to the bottom line. Through coaching and stakeholder interviews, I will help you understand the culture you have, clarify the culture you want, and implement the change you need. Most importantly, I will teach you how to manage it deftly. No cheesy gimmicks here; we're going to get real.
"I want to love my work."
let's talk transition.
If you have career change on the brain, two things matter: (1) whether it's right for you, and (2) how to do it as quickly and painlessly as possible. It's a process, and I can help you through it. As your coach and thought partner, I will support you in this work to consider pros and cons, assess your risk tolerance, explore options, figure out what you want, summon the courage, and transition gracefully. We can work on one piece or the entire puzzle, but regardless...we will start where you are today and move you towards a better situation.
"I'm facing a big decision."
let's find a balanced solution.
Sometimes we know that the status quo is unjust, or that the stakes of our decisions are precariously high - but we don't know how to move forward. My unique combination of strategic experience and ethical training will serve you well. I will help you articulate core concerns, choose decision criteria, track down the info you need, and devise a solution that gels with both your conscience and your ambitions. This service is a hybrid of coaching, creative brainstorming, and research support, customized to each client's specific situation and strengths.
"I'm in some hot water."
let's get you to higher ground.
When the scat hits the fan, you need more than attorneys and PR. You need a deep cleaning. Through coaching and stakeholder interviews, I will help you identify the root problem, devise a response that is both strategic and just, and establish safeguards for the future. You don't ever want to face this again - not just because it's a headache, but because good ethics are good strategy. Also, it's the right thing to do.
