What I hear from leaders:

Time and again, I hear from leaders about the serious challenges of today’s work environment—from the accelerated pace of business to the onslaught of disruptive change, information overload, and ever expanding stakeholder expectations. Adding to the complexity is the need to adeptly lead an increasingly diverse, dispersed, and team-based workforce. In this climate, many leaders understand that their performance trajectory will depend on changing old habits and growing new abilities.

From my own experience as a manager and consultant, I know that sustainable change is not easy to achieve—our efforts tend to be held back by the gravitational pull of the status quo. This is no surprise, as our brains are hardwired to respond in habitual ways.

As a coach, I am dedicated to partnering with you to accelerate the changes you want to make by:
Developing new thinking that can fuel breakthroughs in performance and relationships, and
Translating insights into goals and actions, leading to better results and sustainable change.

I also hear from women leaders— underrepresented at all levels in the American workplace, but especially at the top— about a host of career constraints, including systemic gender bias, negative stereotyping, and the difficulty of simply being heard (aka “speaking while female”). I’ve been there, and I know what’s it like to tackle what can seem like insurmountable hurdles. I am passionate about helping women leaders achieve their most important goals.

Work With Me

In addition to general executive coaching, I’ve designed a series of targeted programs aimed at supporting women leaders, helping executives lead more effectively through emotional intelligence, and assisting clients with the birth of their next act. I also offer strategic and organizational consulting services for businesses and non-profit organizations.
