What We Do
For Professionals & Entrepreneurs
Overview: All of the individual clients listed on the testimonials page started with this package. The learning curve is steep, we'll work together for about four months, not just during your session either. I'll be available between sessions so you have constant support. There will be a ton of exciting information, discovery, and insight. We will delve deep into how you like to operate, what makes you happy, what doesn't, what do you do well, your likes and dislikes. We'll look at your natural skills, and what's transferable. This is an exciting and fun time, creative ideas, lots of feedback, building skills.
My job is to investigate and explore alongside you, make suggestions, offer guidance, connect you with people I know and help you stay the course. You will move your life forward, and new options will present themselves, often in areas you never even thought of. Client's often ask, "what happens after we're done?" You have the option of continuing to work with me, maintaining the support and the access to resources and ideas at a significantly reduced rate.
Duration: usually about four months, consists of ten one-hour long conversations and in-between session texts & emails.
For Graduates, Family Members, New Professionals
Almost without fail, a new client will tell me they wish they could gift a session to someone they know. Whether it’s a spouse or other family member, a friend, a new graduate, or someone in a work transition, this is a single session that helps with self-awareness and the attitude and approach they’ll need to make good choices.
For Leadership Teams, Boards & Partnerships
Aligning the Team using the Enneagram -
The first step is to develop a map of how everyone interacts with each other. I use the enneagram assessment for this, and people love it! They use the information they receive for all aspects of their lives, not just professionally. It develops EQ, provides a baseline for communicating, and identifies blind spots that often contribute to conflict and poor performance.
Get started with an individual enneagram review with each of your team members.
Clarifying the Mission/Strategy/Roles & Clearing the Air -
Once the team map is created, an interesting by-product of this process is role clarification. Based upon individual strengths, team members self assess where their roles can be expanded, and where they'll need support to grow into the role they've been assigned. This is where I find a lot of the conflict resides and why I include this discussion in any leadership team retreat or learn-shop. Misunderstandings about who is doing what tasks, how responsibility is assigned, and who has the authority to make decisions along with the exact process for making a decision are often at the source of team dysfunction. Clearing the air is essential to aligning the team with the mission and goals, and moving the whole organization to high performance.
Half day seminar or Whole day Session
Leadership And Board of Directors Retreats
Getting the right group of people around the table is the most important task of a leader. Get it right, and the team moves effortlessly. Get it wrong and well, we all know what happens then. Dysfunctional behaviors, lack of communication, rogue strategies, and basically, chaos. Nobody wins. After researching and working with teams in non-profits, small businesses, restaurants, and hi-tech start-ups, I designed a workshop process to help groups first learn about each other, and then apply that knowledge to the mission of the organization.
Team Mentor | Trusted Advisor -
I'm hired by my clients to be an on-call, off-site resource for the whole team. My job is to see the organizational map of people, place, and roles, and to support the on-going alignment of each. Outcome: strong collaborative and resilient cultures and optimal performance. My background combines psychology, business, applied sciences, and human dimensions training. It means that I function as a sounding board, a skill builder, and an influencer, as well as a provider of business and human insights. I can work with one individual on the team, several, or all of the team.
