Helping You Grow!

I coach rising executives, emerging senior leaders and project or management teams to level-up personal, group and organizational performance. Drawing upon my two decades of executive leadership experience, I work with clients to understand their goals and build the program and activities necessary to help them accelerate toward those goals. We clarify the outside-in view to their behaviors and performance and then implement a program to strengthen or eliminate behaviors, using the workplace as a real-time proving ground.  

 I have successfully mentored or coached hundreds of professionals during my executive leadership and coaching careers and all of my work today is dedicated to helping others grow and succeed. 

Today’s world of uncertainty and change offers unparalleled opportunities and challenges. You are motivated, educated and experienced, and coaching is that critical difference-maker in helping you learn to navigate and succeed at higher levels.

Over a six-month period we work together to fine-tune your goals and identify the opportunities and obstacles in your way. Armed with input from your colleagues, we develop a Level-Up plan that prioritizes high value behaviors and outlines a plan for development and improvement. We connect monthly to review progress and challenges and continue to solicit input from your team members and colleagues on your performance. In addition to the feedback from colleagues, we also work together to strengthen your command of the 7 Level-Up Skills essential for success in today’s fast changing business environment.

How it Works:

The 8-Step Level-Up Coaching Process

  • We discuss the coaching approach and collaborate to clarify and describe your career goals.
  • We create a Coaching Agreement outlining our mutual responsibilities for the process.
  • I interview (or survey) your key stakeholders and based on colleague input, we define the coaching program objectives around a limited number of high-value behaviors.
  • We complete the Level-Up Action Plan guide and get to work using your calendar as a living laboratory for behavior adjustments.
  • Through monthly coaching calls we focus on understanding your experiences and obstacles and fine-tuning your activities.
  • Onsite observation and strategic conversations with colleagues provides additional support for fine-tuning your activities.
  • We wrap up with a final round of conversations with your colleagues on your performance and then we define next steps.
  • Annual check-in conversation and mentoring discussion at your option.
