It is often said that it is lonely at the top. Some executives feel isolated, and that they do not get real feedback or support from others. I offer support, and will be a confidential thought partner, as you think through what you need to do to be even more successful and happier.
I have found that many managers could improve in essential skills of relating to others. This deficit makes it difficult to manage others and can negatively impact morale and job satisfaction for the manager and their direct reports. I coach managers to understand more about their reports and better motivate and inspire them to higher productivity. I also assist managers in matters of self awareness and self control so that they better understand how they impact others (positively and negatively).
Often, companies like to promote from within. In fact, of the companies surveyed for the book “Good to Great” (by Jim Collins) all but one of the most successful companies did promote from within resulting in companies that evolved from “Good to Great”. I assess Leaders to uncover areas of development and coach these leaders to better exhibit necessary leadership practices and characteristics.
Teams sometimes have difficulty working together to achieve goals. Team members may lack understanding and acceptance of each others’ varied styles of approaching work tasks and relating to others.

I work with team members, assessing strengths, areas of development and assisting members to understand and accept how their own styles may be different from others and how to better work together.
