Courage is resistance of fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
— Mark Twain

Encourage Courage

Progressing to the C-suite requires courage. Courage to recognize what we don’t know. Courage to stand by our convictions. Courage to learn where we are weak and how our strengths can be mastered. Courage to actively seek the signposts that will guide us to success that offers mutual benefit to the organization and ourselves. I help my clients discover and hone their talents through some simple and highly effective practices.

Listen & Converse

In my executive coaching practice I choose to listen. Listening is the greatest way to enable meaningful conversation. Conversation is how we, together, learn the best route forward because we discover both our origins and our destination. That, very simply, is what I do with my clients - engage in the art of conversation. 

I hear what people are really saying as opposed to what they’re telling me. This creates a level of intimacy which leads to genuine exchange and finding the core of my clients’ concerns, hopes and ambitions. 

Act

Action begins with realistic goal setting. The more specific a goal, the greater the likelihood of achievement. I assist my clients in creating plans to which they willingly commit and about which they can measure progress consistently against clear schedules and objectives.
