{My Personal Core Principles of Leader Coaching: Energy Management: When leaders take care of all aspects of themselves, they are connected to their core and are more easily inspired; Coming from this foundation, leaders best inspire their teams.Purpose: Once the leader can identify and leverage his or her unique brilliance, the individual, team and organization can energize and fully engage. Trust: When leaders create a safe and trust-filled environment, they instill greater followership, and teams are more cohesive and effective. Courage: The ability to compassionately and directly speak the truth, even when difficult, moves people forward, faster. My approach is a combination of pragmatic, and perceptive / intuitive. My clients appreciate my ability to apply my skills, training and 20+ years of experience, with in-the-moment inquiry leading to critical insights.
