What a Great Coach Can Do For You

Does this sound like you?

  • You are a committed leader who wants to move your organization forward.
  • You know your employees’ and managers’ commitment and success is the way to do that.
  • You want your subordinate managers and employees to feel the passion in their jobs like you do.
  • Your organization has been through lots of changes. You are under a lot of stress.
  • You feel like you don’t have time to delegate—so you take on too much yourself.
  • You feel like you could use help for your subordinate managers, and someone to hold you and them accountable.

A great coach can make a huge difference in your organization’s success, both for individual leaders and with your teams.

With committed leadership and a great coach, you can see the difference in absenteeism, turnover of key talent, engagement and commitment of employees and manager, and attracting new talent. (All this affects your bottom line).

Why me?

  • I’ve been an executive and manager, and understand your challenges.
  • I believe everyone has the capability of learning to be a better leader. I’ve seen it in my clients.
  • I’ve learned why some businesses thrive, and some fail.
  • I know why some teams gel and accomplish great things, and some don’t.
  • I’ve seen why some leaders get off track, and what they can do about it.

You can get better at delegating, managing and counseling difficult employees, and building great teams.

  • Build trust among teams and employees.

How Do We Do This?

We begin with what you want to accomplish. I have a variety of instruments to help you.  (360 degree assessments, Tri-Level Leadership Model, etc.)

  • In-person or on the phone: especially good for managers that travel a lot.
  • E-mail/phone access between sessions.
  • Total discretion among those being coached.
