While your goals in coaching will be unique and personal to you, there are some common focus areas clients bring to coaching with me. However, if you do not see your goal on this list, don't hesitate to reach out.
Communication & Culture
Principles of Masterful Communication: train in the art of understanding and being understood, wielding influence (with integrity), navigating negotiations, creating clarity and alignment, etc.
Emotional Intelligence: how to cultivate emotional intelligence so that you can have as positive of an impact as possible on colleagues and the company.
Giving & Receiving Feedback: how to give feedback and hold others accountable in a respectful and skillful way that is supportive of their development and builds trust in the relationship; how to avoid emotional reactivity when receiving feedback.
Boundaries: creating and clarifying healthy boundaries around your time, energy, and attention in support of developing a sustainable work-life balance; communicating boundaries in a respectful, collaborative way.
Confidence & Presence: principles of personal empowerment and how to project authentic confidence in a way that inspires respect and trust in others (aka the opposite of impostor syndrome).
Conflict Transformation: collaboratively working through conflict in a way that actually repairs any negative impacts on individuals and relationships, leaving the entire group stronger and more resilient than it was before.
Effectiveness & Efficiency

Accurate Prioritization: how to feel certain that you’re always focusing on what’s actually most important in any moment, to consistently deliver the kinds of results that can most powerfully accelerate your advancement.
