Leadership Coaching

As a leader you face unrelenting pressure. You know that you have to innovate, produce, scale and achieve results but sometimes lack the clarity and confidence to do so. You need a trusted coach who has walked in your shoes and is competent to help you overcome obstacles in your path. As a former CFO and COO, I've successfully guided family owned and closely held companies through rapid growth, restructuring, leadership transitions, multiple investment rounds, and profitable exits. My leadership coaching is customized professional development that will help you achieve results. I provide coaching for:​

  • Entrepreneurs & Startup Leaders

  • CEO's & C-Suite Leaders

  • Senior Managers

  • Emerging Leaders

Business Consulting

Growing a business, regardless of maturity or size, requires an engaged team, a financial plan and a scalable infrastructure. Often the issues constraining a company's success are related to people, process or technology. Improvements in these areas will boost your team's confidence, increase morale and have a lasting impact on your business. If you are facing challenges around:

  • Operational Efficiency

  • Financial Management

  • Organizational Structure

  • Cash Flow Optimization

  • Budget & Business Planning

I can be your tactical business partner and help you develop a path for success.

Career Coaching

Finding your calling in the professional world takes thoughtful, intentional work and regular reflection. If you are a seasoned executive looking for a change, a young creative experiencing discontent or a college student beginning your career, we can work together to discover powerful insights that can help you establish a life plan toward more meaningful and purposeful work. Using a step-by-step life design process, we will examine your unique strengths, desires and work experiences and translate them into a playbook that will guide your decisions moving forward.

 

STEP OUTSIDE

Moving through work and leadership challenges requires thinking outside the box. To gain new perspective, we often need a break from the fast paced, distracting office environment. Stepping into a natural setting will boost your energy, reduce stress and facilitate fresh ideas. If you would like to try a new coaching experience, then step outside with me for an outdoor coaching conversation. We’ll meet at a convenient walking trail and take a break from the status quo.
