Results Achieved

The CEO of a start-up in Silicon Valley was dealing with rapid changes and was feeling the pressure to adopt and implement new strategies quickly. Poor time management skills was preventing her from strategizing and staying calm. By working together for six months, she was able to become more efficient, self-aware and found creative ways of delegating and solving problems in the midst of challenging situations.

Results: She was eventually able to take her company to a higher level of maturity successfully taking her company to next series of rounds for capital funding.

A VP of sales was faced with the challenge of helping his team navigate through significant changes while maintaining a high level of performance and employee engagement during a merge. We worked together on clarifying values and brainstormed on specific training the team needed during the newfound operation.

Results: His team was able to maximize effectiveness through the turmoil of change.
