Leading to your best
Be your best so that you can do your best work.
You come to the table with a unique variety of strengths and weaknesses—some of which are deeply entrenched. In addition, you must navigate a complex organizational system that has its own culture and dynamics. Our Leadership Coaching + Consulting services help you navigate the variety of issues at play for you and your context so that you achieve your goals.
We typically work with three types of leaders
Presidents, CEOs + Founders
They want guidance from an objective leadership expert who they can trust to be in their corner. They typically come looking for very focused help whether it’s creating and communicating a new vision, redefining their role, thinking through their next steps or support in leading their executive team.
Leaders preparing for a new role
They want to clear obstacles for a smooth path forward, but may need help gaining clarity on exactly what about their leadership needs to change and how to demonstrate improvement.
Leaders facing performance barriers
It’s hard for executives to see themselves and the contributing issues clearly. The more power leaders gain, the less honest people tend to be with them. They need clear insights into the root of the issues and prioritized steps to address them.
We consider all the factors affecting a leader and how they intersect

5 things to know about our coaching
Leaders exist within a larger context that includes the organization's system and culture. We look at the whole picture so that we can help you create the change you are seeking.

We are seasoned leadership coaches with opinions and a point of view born of experience. We’ll help you play out the ideas you’re considering, explore new perspectives and give you honest feedback.
Our expertise in many, varied assessments and tools means that we can quickly identify the approach that will best fit you. Different things work for different leaders.
