Executive Coaching

A recurring theme exists among business professionals with whom I have worked throughout the years. They report increasing time pressures leading to tension when seeking balance between the demands of a successful professional life and a meaningful personal life. My approach to executive coaching, in addition to the formation of a Professional Development Plan, includes a Stress and Lifestyle Assessment to assist in establishing goals and priorities for achieving a balanced approach to work/life success.

Executive Coaching is an intense and highly focused series of one-on-one sessions between an experienced professional coach and a key contributor (coachee) in an organization, for the purpose of assisting in identifying one’s strengths and areas where development is needed. Coaching involves working to identify and develop:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Motivation
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Leadership Ability
  • 360 degree testing/feedback
Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.
