As a cofounder, you and your partner(s) complement each other in your vision, knowledge, and expertise, but different personality styles and values may strain your ability to work well together. Relationship problems can be a primary reason that start-ups fail. We help you develop tools and strategies to identify, address, and overcome barriers and differences as well as to affirm mutual strengths. A key part of this process involves recognizing, acknowledging, and acting upon your values—both as an individual and a partner.
As an executive leader, you carry an immense amount of responsibility, which can be a stressful and lonely experience. Effective leaders possess strong leadership skills and insight into their strengths and weaknesses, which enables them to actualize their potential and maximize their performance. We teach you to assess your strengths, understand your weaknesses, and emphasize your unique talents. You learn how to leverage your strengths and improve your performance. We accelerate and solidify positive change by helping you to identify your core values and how they impact both you and your organization. We work with you to create an executive strategy action plan, develop leadership skills that are crucial to your particular organization’s culture, implement positive behavioral changes, enhance individual and organizational performance, create an optimal work/life balance, reduce turnover, improve employee morale and productivity, create a positive work environment, and improve your bottom line.
As an entrepreneur, you face unique challenges. You may consider yourself an imposter or “not good enough.” You may feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and alone, which can short-circuit your ability to achieve goals. We help you work with your beliefs about yourself—both positive and negative—and then guide you in articulating your values, which are vital to achieving your goals. Unlike other more business-oriented entrepreneur coaches, we enable you to be more mindful in order to deal with your self-imposed obstacles and to commit to doing what’s important to you. Mindfulness increases “psychological flexibility,” which vitalizes you in life and work and helps you achieve success in your entrepreneurial endeavors.
Personality conflicts and dynamics disrupt the productivity and effectiveness of executive teams, which then filters down through the entire organization. Personal frustration of individual team members stymies vital interaction, clear communication, and essential collaboration. Identifying values lies at the core of our executive team coaching. We assess different individual beliefs and patterns within the team, providing feedback for both individual team members and the entire team in order to create optimal functioning and effectiveness. We work with the whole person and the whole team—that is, with both strengths and weaknesses—to enable and energize the team to become more cohesive and productive.
Do fear, anxiety, and panic dominate when you need to give public presentations? We assist you in identifying your self-sabotaging beliefs and feelings, and help you work through them so you can deliver those presentations as your best self. Through changing your relationship to fear, you can learn to accept your physical sensations and use fear as your ally to help you optimize your public speaking.
