Most senior executives and leaders that I have met over the years are amazingly resilient and high energy individuals. They typically lived a life of high achievement, hard work, and sacrifice, however they also have had to navigate the challenging emotional ups and downs of corporate leadership. The politics, the tough decisions, and the sleepless nights all contribute to a life that is sometimes challenging to sustain both for the executive themselves and those that they love.
After years of coaching highly impactful senior executives up to C-suite, I am fully convinced that those who are willing to do the hard work of deep self-reflection and vertical mindset development* can reach new heights in both their careers and in their own personal lives.
Research shows that individuals and leaders that have high levels of awareness and continue working towards self-actualization have greater impact. And how does coaching and vertical development work help? It challenges our current mindsets that may keep us stuck. It opens ourselves up to new ideas and possibilities about our own growth and the development of others. This growth mindset requires deep work on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level; tapping into true power that was always there and waiting to be unleashed.

Approaches to Executive Coaching Programs
Immunity to Change
Following the adult development research of Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, we will explore together effective ways to sustainably transform yourself into the leader you were meant to be.
We live in a world of polarities. Understanding how we think and what unconscious biases may shape our perspectives can help us to be comfortable navigating the extremes of both life and work.
Think, Act, Feel Cycle
Every decision or behavior starts with a thought. Many times this may even be subconscious. Unpacking our patterns or thoughts and emotions that we have been programmed from a very early age is the first step to any type of behavior change. Using cognitive behavioral tools with a coach will help sustainably transform those habits and beliefs that may be getting in our own way.
