Leadership & Board Coaching

Leader & Executive Coaching

New situations, teams, peers, and opportunities can give both the emerging and seasoned leader pause.

As your coach I will partner with you to:

  • Build awareness of your leadership competencies
  • Identify concrete actions to maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses
  • Discuss approaches to creating a culture of excellence
  • Create a framework for effective decision making
  • Support you through leader challenges
“Great leadership is a challenge. When the leader understands how to leverage resources and maximize opportunity, the challenge becomes motivating.” Ellen Faye
“Trying to lead without a strong foundation is like trying to drive a car without an engine.” Ellen Faye

Board Coaching & Consulting

Build a framework for your Board to do their best work.  Good intentions are simply not enough.

As your coach I will partner with you to:

  • Create systems for your Board to do strategic work
  • Ensure your mission drives your plan and your plan inspires your leaders
  • Set clear Board expectations and clarify responsibilities
  • Ensure that meetings are meaningful, efficient, and effective

Communication & Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a natural occurrence. People simply don’t always see things the same way.  When important decisions are on the table and there are differing opinions, conflicts may arise.  However, without differences best work is never accomplished.  Effectively channeling perspectives and opinions results in best outcomes.

As your coach I will partner with you to:

  • Build a culture of “safety,” so that team members can share openly
  • Create tools and supports so that you are able to lead effective discussion that empowers your team to talk through problems and move into action
“Good productivity comes from good communication.” Crucial Conversations
“Thorough strategic understanding of all aspects of a growth plan greatly improves one’s probability of success.” Ellen Faye

Business Growth Strategy

Without change and progress there is little growth. Without growth and adaptability the future may be bleak. However, saying yes to growth often comes with saying no to less important initiatives. Growth is a risk, and saying no to growth is a risk too.

As your coach I will partner with you to:

  • Provide a safe space for you to assess benefits and risks of new initiatives
  • Evaluate, anticipate, and overcome obstacles
  • Develop a tangible plan to share with stakeholders
  • Be confident to say no when needed
