“I would arrive to our coaching sessions with a concern I couldn’t necessarily even put into words. Andrea would ask critical, clarifying questions and offer solid techniques to deal with whatever that concern might be. I now have a better toolkit to get into the flow of my sage brain and handle the volume of things I need to deal with personally and professionally.”

As a leader, you set the tone, the direction, and the strategy. Others look to you for their marching orders. It is imperative you have the information and support you need to do your personal best, and enable others to do theirs.

It certainly can be lonely at the top. When you’re in charge of your organization, your department, or your business, sometimes it just feels like the world is sitting on your shoulders. You don’t feel you can go to your boss, your employees or your board because then they might think you aren’t being the leader you have been hired to be.

Sometimes it seems as if there is no one to listen, to run ideas by, or to get some objective advice from, let alone offer perspective, ideas and understanding. Without this support, thoughts of insecurity, flawed judgments and cynical thinking can sneak in and disrupt your ability to accomplish your goals and plans.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You just have to make the decision to take the first step — get skillful, positive guidance.

“I don’t know where to start when it comes to what I’ve gained from coaching with Andrea. Practically speaking, tools! She’d ask me questions and listen deeply to my answers, and to what I wasn’t saying. We’d explore the issue, and then she’d share a tool — that worked. I developed a deep trust in her that enabled me to be open about my concerns and challenges and focus on the things I can have an impact on. This decreased my stress level exponentially. What I’ve learned has changed my approach to leadership and how I function. I highly recommend working with Andrea.”

“I went into coaching intending to work on my public speaking, but it turned into so much more. In the end, I needed and wanted leadership development. It meant thinking of myself in a different light, and also seeing how those around me contribute to my success and the success of the company. I have become more self aware and more confident. I now have the ability to speak in front of large groups – not sure exactly what made the shift happen, but it did!”

Andrea guides and supports you to bring greater self-awareness and skill to your leadership practices, based on these core ideas:

  • Authentic leadership involves supporting an organization you believe in – an organization that holds high value for you and for which you are willing to share your time, treasure and talent.
  • Authentic leadership embraces the qualities of cooperation, collaboration, and compassion – these are our natural human qualities. This is about listening to our rational brain and our hearts when it comes to what we do and how we do it, and bring this to others.
  • Authentic leadership brings with it the value of discovery and knowing that there are at least ten solutions to every problem. It’s involves being curious about others and what will best serve them.

“Working with Andrea during my job search, she helped me realize I was concerned about repeating the past. By moving through that and finding gratitude for all I was learning, I felt much more confident and ready to start my next adventure. I am empowered again, met my goal and found my perfect position!”
