Individual Executive Coaching
A Safe and Supportive Place for You
Executive coaching is an opportunity for an honest, challenging and private relationship that supports your personal and professional development and individual success. Many woman executives feel isolated. Because you are so visible and because so many depend on you, you are most likely quiet about both your fears and your desires particularly as they relate to being at this stage of your life and your career.
Executive coaching offers a place for you to have a safe and confidential sounding board for your thoughts and feelings. I offer compassionate, fearless and authentic feedback that can help you to both connect with your authentic self and to see past your blind spots. Coaching helps you become the person that you want to be and helps you create the environment that you want to live in at a faster pace and on a greater scale than any other form of professional development - because you identify, own and act on your desired results.
The Importance of Your Leadership
You are in a position of leadership. This is a position of influence in relationship to your peers, your organization, and your immediate and extended community. How you experience and express yourself has an important impact. In this position of leadership, you have the opportunity to partake in and model principled decision-making. You need to be very clear on your core values and how your leadership reflects those values.
In order to lead effectively, you need to know where you intend to go. You need to have a vision and a plan for how that vision will be actualized. As the environment around you shifts and changes, you want to be light on your feet and be able to adjust your vision and the actions you take to fulfill it.
Being in midlife may cause you to re-evaluate aspects of your leadership and your career. You may be feeling aspirational or you may be feeling ill at ease or longing for a more meaningful experience. (Or, maybe you're feeling done and want to retire to that island!)
You also experience the demands of balancing your personal and professional life. The personal and the professional are, and need to be, the continuum of your life - not separate from each other. How you live your life is how you lead. Clarity about your values, your priorities and how you balance your life is invaluable to your experience of integrity, fulfillment and success in all aspects of your life. Being in midlife is to be at the opening of a doorway into a deeper, more profound experience of yourself.
Your commitment to personal growth, as well as professional growth, is your greatest asset. In a world that is constantly changing, your ability to grow and learn is what helps you keep pace, stay relevant and stay effective as a leader. The depth of your awareness of yourself and how you choose to view your experiences informs the large and small choices you make every day.

Measures of Success of the Coaching Process
The measurements of the success of coaching are both external and internal. The external indicators can be seen and measured by both the individual being coached and her environment of managers, peers, direct reports, and family members, as well as the meeting of personal and professional goals and objectives. The internal indicators include an enhanced feeling of well-being, increased personal and professional satisfaction, increased self-awareness and confidence.
