How I went from leading teams & organizations to ...



Cultivating High-Impact, Thriving Leaders

I came to leadership early. At the age of 30, I became the youngest and first female partner in a national consulting firm after selling the boutique firm I founded 2 years earlier. Did I know what I was doing? Yes and No. I was a subject matter expert, but I knew very little about how to lead others. I learned to lead the hard way ... by trial and error. I struggled more than I needed to because I didn't have someone I could turn to accelerate my learning curve.

Since then, I’ve discovered the core leadership and life skills leaders need to learn, practice and master. And, I've made it my mission to help as many people as possible thrive and make an impact by making leadership development accessible and actionable.

You Can Lead + Live Better™

If you're like most of the people I work with, you're already a high-achieving leader. You're committed to winning at work -- making big contributions and seeing measurable results. But you also want to thrive in all aspects of your life. You want to be a confident skillful leader and have the capacity for relationships and play. You're after sustained, multifaceted success on your terms.

You want to make an impact where it matters most to you ... at work and at home. 

As Your Leadership Coach, I can help you get there faster with less stress. I help high achievers to Lead + Live Better™. I support leaders to gain the clarity and confidence to work more effectively – often in less time – and have more impact. And I equip organizations with leadership development programs which cultivate amazing leaders at every level.

Gain Clarity And Confidence

Leadership is inherently messy, deeply personal and connected to your whole life. It can be overwhelming. I know, I've been there. I've burned out. I've been directionless.

But I learned the secret to success was not about getting 'more' done, but rather doing the 'right' things the 'right' way. I learned to marry my daily actions with my deepest desires. 

I discovered that the definition of leadership is maddeningly simple: it's a combination of leading oneself and leading others to be impactful. It's about how you drive yourself to take meaningful action and achieve results, and influence others to do the same.

I believe everyone has the capacity to lead. But you have to choose to lead to be truly effective.

If you understand these tenets, you can become an excellent leader.
