Work With Me

How I Help

I offer general executive coaching as well as programs tailored to women leaders, individuals creating their next act, and executives who want to lead more effectively by enhancing their emotional intelligence (see below). In addition, I have a longstanding strategic and organizational consulting practice geared toward businesses and non-profit organizations.

As a former executive and management consultant, I have worked with countless men and women on the pursuit of ambitious and often challenging business goals. Combined with my training as a professional coach, this broad and deep experience has given me a unique platform from which to help you find a new way forward, break through personal barriers that have held you back, and avoid the pitfalls of organizational life.

I bring to my coaching practice functional expertise in strategic planning, organization design and transformation, and leadership development. In addition, I am experienced in a wide range of business sectors, from media and marketing to professional services, engineering, health care, financial services, and non-profit.

Cultivating emotional intelligence as the foundation of strong working relationships.

Practicing inclusive leadership of strong, diverse teams.

Finding your work/life balance and renewing yourself to avoid burnout.

Setting clear goals, navigating transitions, and staying the course.

Targeted Coaching Programs

Leading While

Female

Women leaders face a host of career constraints, including systemic gender bias, negative stereotyping, and the difficulty of simply being heard (aka “speaking while female”). If you are a woman looking to rise further in your organization, or simply wanting to navigate your professional landscape with greater understanding, ease, and success, this program is designed for you.

Strategic & Organizational

Consulting

Has your organization outgrown its current structure? Or, maybe your team is ready to build a new strategic vision but lacks the capacity to do it alone? I have worked with companies of all sizes and shapes to help them overcome their most difficult challenges. I help clients make strategies work in complex organizations, update organizational designs, and improve team and leadership effectiveness.
