Professional Growth

I'm inspired by it.

I committed to it.

I deliver it!

For me, it comes down to one simple concept – people and their professional growth.

And my standard for success is simple. I make sure my clients succeed. Everything I do is crafted to facilitate success in the professional world, and I take this responsibility very seriously.

By taking an integrated approach with my clients, I create client-centered, performance-based, and business-focused solutions that become game-changers in the workplace while taking you, your team, and your organization to a whole new level of success.

I invite you to explore my coaching, speaking, and strategy services. If you don't see exactly what you want, give me a call. I'd be delighted to customize a solution exclusively for you, your team, or your organization.

Having worked with clients from the following organizations, you'll see that my work transcends various industries.

What I Can Do For You

Executive Coaching

I love helping professionals like you make the most of where you are right now while helping you strategize and skill-build for the future. 

My clients will tell you that I approach every engagement with genuine curiosity and an unrelenting drive to get to the root cause of whatever is holding you back.

Armed with an arsenal of highly-calibrated questions, I will keep peeling the layers of the onion back until we know precisely what needs to be addressed and why. Then, I will customize a coaching plan to help you move past your obstacles and capitalize on the opportunities ahead.

They're also likely to tell you that my superpower is helping you think about thinking.

I will stimulate your thinking in new ways to pull the answers you seek out of you. In doing so, you will make decisions with confidence and take action that leads to extraordinary results.

Are you ready to leverage your potential into a compelling force and unleash your untapped talent into a robust competitive edge?

If so, I invite you to explore my coaching solutions.

Keynotes, Workshops & Training

In addition to coaching and strategy work, I offer engaging keynotes, interactive workshops, and content-rich training.

I’m known for moving the podium aside, stepping off stage, and interacting with attendees to deliver transformative experiences – all of which are designed to help attendees combine soft skills with hard skills, which can be the key differentiating factor in:

  • successfully navigating their professional landscape
  • transforming their overall effectiveness and success
  • enjoying a meaningful & satisfying career and living life on their terms

Strategy Work

Despite what motivational gurus say, achieving success requires more than just stating your vision and leveraging the law of attraction. It is essential that you have a plan – whether it is for your success or your business or organization's success.

I offer strategy work for executives, leadership teams, entrepreneurs, and small to mid-size businesses. Contact me to discuss how a strategic planning process can take you, your team, or your organization to the next level. Together, we'll determine where you are now and where you want to be, and then we'll create a roadmap to get there. 

I'll design and facilitate a process that suits your culture and planning experience, achieves desired outcomes, and fits within your budget of time and money.

Peer Advisory Leadership Forums

Peer Advisory Leadership Forums are intimate forums that address the leadership, strategy, and collaboration required to thrive in today's complex business climate.

When expertly facilitated, they create opportunities for leaders to engage in substantive leader-to-leader exchange that strengthens their business acumen and prepares them for the psychological and relational issues that come with being an organizational leader.

Facilitating a robust exchange of knowledge and expertise, these structured and candid conversations present your leaders with a unique and rare opportunity to:

  • leverage the wisdom of other leaders inside the organization to tackle their goals & highest priorities and explore how to take advantage of opportunities that lie ahead
  • share insights and experience so that, collectively, as a group, they get smarter and make better decisions
  • learn new approaches and develop actionable strategies for a higher level of leadership performance

Meeting once a month behind closed doors, your leaders will provide and receive critical feedback & support while deepening their relationships with each other.

Are you ready to strengthen your leadership pipeline with an expertly facilitated Peer Advisory Leadership Forum?
