Leveraging Leadership: Overcome Your Challenges

Facilitating collaborative learning spaces for senior executives to uncover and gain a fresh perspective for approaching their communication challenges
The Adaptive Approach
As a professional, you likely approach your challenges from a technical perspective: tangible problems with identifiable solutions. But you might be missing the root cause of the professional and personal challenges you face. These are the adaptive challenges, the ones that deal with beliefs, habits, priorities, and communication of you and your team. These problems don’t have concrete answers. I help you take steps toward the answers.
I foster supportive communities where peers work with one another to develop trust, uncover issues, reflect on and discuss issues, share perspectives, develop goals and change processes, and develop the capacity to implement changes.

My coaching is customized to fit you, your style and organization. I meet you where you are, focusing on attitudes, approaches, and behaviors for problem solving, developing positive working relationships, and personal and professional growth in your business.

I integrate cutting-edge organization development principles and engagement strategies to build the individual skills and the collective capacity to learn and work together, maximizing performance of professional teams.

State of the Business Analysis

I conduct an on-site situational analysis and problem/opportunity identification process, focusing on personal dynamics. I discuss my findings with leadership as an idea partner for improving business effectiveness, job enrichment, and personal empowerment.

“Maybe you have one or two peers you can talk to about problems, but that’s not the same as conferring with a professional. As your advisor, I can help get the issues on the table and work through them to find better solutions.”
With over 30 years experience in a family-owned funeral business and extensive training in Positive Organizational Development and Change and the Gestalt Process, I am uniquely qualified to understand the personal and professional issues of running a business, as well as the methods for surfacing and addressing those issues on teams, in peer groups, and a one-on-one basis.

N
Funeral service industry
