Today, the working world is different: Employees expect more from their leaders and organizations, work desirability has changed, and there’s a certain level of intolerance when it comes to feeling overwhelmed and unfulfilled. With five (yes, five!) generations in the workforce, the concept of leadership looks and feels different to each group. We can't expect what works today will be suitable and sustainable for the future.
Tomorrow's leaders need to develop and be equipped with the leadership capabilities that translate to complex, uncertain, unpredictable organizations. My work focuses on helping leaders to build more capacity when more is required of us, yet we only have so much to give. Therefore, leaders must cultivate a strong leadership mindset if they are going to successfully handle today’s complex challenges and contribute to a healthy organizational culture.
My Approach & Philosophy
I'm a curious, glass half full guy so coaching is a natural extension of who I am and what I bring to my clients. Coaching is about updating your internal operating system. To change the outcome, I will partner with you to challenge the assumptions, self-limiting beliefs, thinking traps, biases, etc. of the old system to develop a new operating system needed for today's leadership challenges. Together, we will cultivate a leadership mindset that can help you and your team rise above almost any challenge.
As a Strengths-based leadership practitioner, I'm influenced by positive psychology and utilize an individual's innate talents to leverage growth. My coaching style has been described as acupuncture: the questions I ask are like the small needles, some may become quite vulnerable but never too much for the client. My approach infuses radical candor, metaphors, humor, and creativity.
To surface deeper levels of awareness, I offer clients the opportunity to use the following assessments: DISC, CliftonStrengths, Hogan, and Center for Creative Leadership's 360-Feedback Suite.
The ROI of My Work
The ROI of my coaching is the tangible and intangible results leaders need to be most impactful in today's complex world. To achieve peak productivity, it begins with deepening awareness so that leaders can increase their conversational, cultural, emotional and positive intelligence.
