Online Executive Leadership & Team Coaching

While we believe everyone can lead, most of us need time (and often an objective listening ear) to think about how you want to lead more effectively.

Sometimes people with the most expertise have the most to sort through.

Whether you have a short-term concern or a long-term vision, our goal is to help you get there faster, through deeper work, together.

If you are leading a large organization, taking your team to the next level, or exploring where you personally want to go next, having a coach provides benefits. 

Every person is different, but many of my clients have benefited from transformative outcomes: 

Personally

  • Richer clarity on what success means to them

  • Developing action plans to achieve that success

  • Greater self-awareness, behavior change, and individual growth

With Colleagues

  • Improved decision-making and other “soft,” but harder, skills

  • Positive impact on team stress, attitudes, and collaboration

  • Increased confidence, influence, trust, and performance

Organizationally

  • More effective leadership strategies and alignment of their teams

  • Better personal branding and navigation of political minefields

  • Creating a greater commitment to accountability and results

The VADES Coaching Process

Every person is different, so we can approach our work together as you need it. It can be a short-term one issue or decision you want to resolve, or it can be a longer-term complex goal you want to achieve with numerous accomplishments embedded within. 

While I’m a “thought partner,” that usually entails exploring your thoughts rather than offering mine. Although if I have some specific expertise in that area, I’m happy to answer your questions and/ or provide resources. And I have been known to have opinions, if you care.

I developed the VADES organization change model  for companies in transition, and have adapted it for more complex situations in individual and team coaching.

Enviroment Chart

Typically, we begin by clarifying what Vision or goals you have, then confirm how they Align with your values and environment. Usually, you’d take an assessment to give us a foundation for discussion of your strengths and what’s important to you. Then we explore possibilities for Designing a plan and a way to Execute it to achieve your goals. Lastly, we would identify any obstacles to your Sustaining that goal and create any reward or habit system needed to support that continued accomplishment.

Although this methodology looks linear, there is always iteration in the process – maybe your goals shift as you gain clarity. Perhaps you recognize one of your values has more, or less, importance as we work together. Something in the environment could alter your situation. We can always modify and respond agilely to change. You are the ultimate decision maker in our coaching relationship.
