Executive Coaching

Optimize the Diverse Talents of Your Team

I've designed and led transformative leadership programs in Australia, New Zealand, Ethiopia and the United States for leaders ages 26-76 from 35 countries.


Deeper than cultural differences, there are common human values that motivate and inspire people to evolve and to contribute their best. Happy and successful team members possess more than technical expertise. Highly developed interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, self-awareness, flexibility, strategic and systems thinking, and the ability to take multiple perspectives all play important roles in decision-making, communicating, planning, collaborating, visioning and succeeding. Strong leaders possess the abilities to leverage diversity, to build trusting partnerships, to inspire others, and contribute their passion and talent in ways that compliment their colleagues.

An individual's personal and professional dynamics, capacities and challenges are intimately linked. Personal strengths and deficiencies influence work performance. As an executive coach I help leaders excel both personally and professionally to develop their unique strengths, to become more self-aware and motivated, and to interact with others in ways that are gracious, authentic and effective.

Executive and Leadership Coaching Provides the Following Benefits:

  • Improved communication skills for diplomacy, negotiation & team cohesion

  • Emotional intelligence that leads to greater empathy and authenticity

  • Empowerment and self-confidence to enhance job performance

  • Self-Responsibility & Initiative to generate innovative and transformative structures

  • Creative thought partnership for problem-solving and decision-making

  • Agility and stability in an atmosphere of chaos and change

Providing coaching for your employees supports their development and wellbeing, indicates that you are committed to their success and that you value them enough to invest in their development. Contact me directly if you are interested in exploring options for your staff.

Culture Design & Visioning

Build a Robust and Enlivening Team Culture

People work best when they are inspired and challenged, and people of all ages are inspired by contributing their gifts and passions to something greater than themselves. With a shared vision, individuals are motivated to collaborate, communicate and to bring the best of who they are to their work environment. I love helping individuals and teams imagine and envision new possibilities and futures that inspire and infuse them with passion and excitement to follow through and achieve their desires - whether that means a better functioning team, greater trust, a sense of empowerment, presence, flow and/or practical outcomes that benefit each individual, the organization and society as a whole.

I offer one-day or one-and-a-half day staff trainings and retreats to help your team:

  • Identify and clear unresolved tension and communication

  • Deepen camaraderie through appreciation of one another's uniqueness

  • Imagine new ways to improve efficiency and productivity

  • Build or deepen trust and mutual care

  • Imagine and commit to a shared vision that aligns with the organization's mission

  • Identify their own individual strengths, talents, skills, passions that inspire movement towards both their unique purpose and the organization's purpose and intention.

Please contact me if you'd like to discuss the possibility of a regenerative or vision setting staff retreat for your team or group.

Facilitating Deep & Dynamic Conversations

 Generate Understanding, Insight & Motivation

In addition to coaching individuals in work teams, I facilitate whole team conversations via video conference for a variety of kinds of group contexts, both work and non-work related.


Deep process facilitation can help you and your team or group:


  • Identify and resolve productivity, morale and work flow issues

  • Imagine and create new solutions together

  • Uncover tension and clear the air of unspoken resentment and frustration that arise interpersonally

  • Increase awareness of individual and team strengths and growing edges

  • Inspire commitment to a shared vision

  • Deepen and expand awareness that brings greater depth and intimacy to all

Please contact me if you are interested in one or multiple group sessions to help your team discuss and open to new ways of viewing and responding to one another, and/or to your organizational objectives and vision.
