Organizations work the way they do because of how we work, how we think and interact.
— Peter Senge

Team Coaching and Development

I don’t believe in team motivation. I believe in getting a team prepared so it knows it will have the necessary confidence when it steps on a field and be prepared to play a good game.
— Tom Landry

Teams are complex and dynamic, where the sum of its individuals can be more than each as a solo part, especially in this 24/7 dynamic world. Harnessing the power of teams requires being intentional about the relationship between you, your people and the organization. 

My approach to team development is not about ropes courses, trust falls or kumbaya; nor about creating rigid team processes. I can work with you and your teams to help them learn how to challenge each other respectfully, have tough conversations that are productive, trust each other’s strengths, and be respectful of other’s growth areas. And during this process, if we uncover other aspects of team performance that need to be addressed, such as a gap in the necessary skills or an individual performance issue, I will advise on options. All in service of bringing the team towards a clear end goal.

Leadership Coaching

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
— Dr Seuss

You are your own best asset. A better understanding of your decision-making process and communication style will give you the ability to expand your portfolio of leadership tools to achieve the impacts you intend. Yet we often forget to invest in ourselves because we are so busy investing in others. Think about the airline safety rule: put your own mask on first before helping others. While it may seem counterintuitive, investing in your leadership skill is one of the smartest investments you can make to support your organization and I believe you will find it generates many unexpected positive returns!  

Whether you are an aspiring new manager or a seasoned executive, I’d be honored to work with you as partner and catalyst to enhance your impact to the people around you and your organization. Our work together will be a journey of fostering what makes you unique as a leader as we obtain an assessment of how you are viewed as a leader; reflect and build upon your experiences, past and present; and test out new behaviors that enhance your personal effectiveness.

I can conduct leadership coaching either as a personal leadership coach or as part of team coaching and development engagement.
