About You, My Ideal Client:
I work with corporate leaders and professionals who want thriving careers in harmony with their personal lives. They wish to reconcile corporate definitions of success with their own personal definitions of success. If you are striving for this alignment, let’s decide together what success means for you and how you may thrive in the corporate environment in a way that enables the “real” you to emerge and prosper.
About Me, Your Coach:
I am a professional who has worked in the for-profit corporate arena for more than twenty years as a global corporate executive and now an external coach. On a personal level, I am a wife, step-mom, grandmother, sister, aunt and the current matriarch of our family, a role I inherited when my mother became ill and then passed away.
I’ve experienced many of life’s inevitable celebrations and disappointments along the way both at work and at home. At work: Promotions, demotions, terminations, good bosses, bad bosses, positive feedback, negative feedback, multi-cultural environments both geographically and organizationally and early, mid and later career transitions. I’ve had my advocates and my detractors. At home: Marriage, divorce, re-marriage, step families, fractured families, family tragedies, health and eldercare challenges and financial ups and downs. I bring this blend of my business and personal experiences to coaching to look at personal and work challenges in a new way.
How I got here?
Inside the corporate arena I worked with executives who were being developed for senior leadership positions. I observed that constantly striving to attain the organization's measure of success sometimes created internal conflict, and executives often had to make tough career decisions that not only impacted them, but their families as well.
Since becoming an external coach I've seen that leaders at all levels wrestle with the challenge of reconciling the organization’s expectations with their own personal realities. I've also observed that there is no perfect solution. It's a matter of making the tough trade-off choices, and it's making these choices consciously that is critical to longer term well-being. This involves defining for ourselves what success means in the context of both our work and personal lives.
So, if you find yourself in this situation and are ready to empower yourself to make choices that work for the “total” you, contact me today for a FREE INTRODUCTORY SESSION to explore the possibilities!
