Executive Coaching

Who is Executive Coaching for?

  • You are an executive (or in a leadership role) at your company. You may be the founder, owner, president, in the C-suite, or in a leadership or management role of some sort.
  • You may be feeling overwhelmed, stretched too thin, or burnt out.
  • You may not be feeling as motivated, passionate or excited about your work, your position or your role.
  • You may be struggling with dynamics in working relationships, either that involve you or involve the team that you manage.
  • You may not feel that you have the right support in place around you – you are having to carry too much of the weight but you don’t know how to fix that.
  • You may be struggling with how to do everything – take care of everything and everything at work, at home, with everything else you’re involved in, and there is very little time (if any) for you to take care of yourself.
  • You don’t even know what it looks like to take care of yourself.
  • You may be feeling disconnected from your team members and possibly from your relationships outside of work and from yourself.
  • You may be feeling that you need to do everything. You are in charge and you feel like you’re responsible for everything, including the success of your company, your team members, etc. And carrying that weight is likely getting a little (or a lot) cumbersome.

What you can Expect

  • You will more relieved, connected, energized, hopeful, and fulfilled.
  • You will understand your values, passions, your desires, your greatest strengths and skills. You will be able to leverage this knowledge to shift and shape your role to be much more fulfilling, exciting, manageable and aligned with your personal definition of success (which you will actually understand).
  • You will both understand and be able to communicate your needs and needs of the company and your team members.
  • You will create deep, lasting impact for your own work, your team and the company’s culture and success.
  • You will feel re-energized, motivated and excited about your work.
  • You will learn how to actually take care of yourself and understand the benefits for you, everyone around you (at work and at home) and the company.
  • You will learn how to create, set and communicate boundaries.
  • You won’t feel alone. You will have a sounding board, a container for venting, an accountability buddy, an advisor, an advocate, and a cheerleader.
  • You will experience change VERY quickly.

How it Works

  • I build custom packages for my Executive Coaching Clients based on your situation and needs. I work with companies that bring me on to coach their executives and I also work with executives that hire me directly.
  • A typical executive coaching relationship involves weekly phone coaching sessions with some email work and check-ins in between (if possible and relevant) and lasts for at least 6 months.

I offer free 30-minute consultations to anyone interested in working with me or in learning more about what I can offer.

What is a Coach?

I am asked this question frequently and the answer to will differ depending on the coach you’re asking. Who I am as a coach is largely about my style (see About), but there are a few basic descriptions that can help…

A coach is just like an athletic coach. I am on your team. I am pushing you. I am supporting you. I am helping you to develop your strengths and unique gifts and working with you to overcome weaknesses and struggles.

Many people ask about the difference between a coach and a therapist. There are similarities and some big differences:

  • Coaching is forward-focused. In my work with clients, obstacles may arise that are rooted in the past, and we will take a look at those and move through them. We focus on moving forward vs. focusing on or dwelling in the past.
  • Coaches can relate, which leads to a different kind of relationship. I do not have to keep my experiences out of our coaching sessions. I will be transparent, open and honest with you about what I’ve experienced as well as what I notice for you. This allows you to feel supported, heard and not alone.
  • Coaches push. I am not going to just listen. I am going to truly question you and help you make change.

Coaches are not experts, and I’m certainly not claiming to be one. I don’t have everything “figured out” or “mastered,” but I have both the experience and training to help you through it.
