I am known for being warm and non-judgmental, yet direct. During our conversations. we will address the heart of the matter for you and get meaningful results.
I am passionate about self-improvement and inspiring others to be their best selves.
I have had great success in helping my clients feel empowered and energized to move forward. I feel most alive when I help others connect with who they truly are, lead with courage and make decisions that are aligned with their core values.
My clients are successful leaders as well as emerging leaders who are looking to up their game by increasing their self-awareness in order to lead more effectively. I help them navigate through complex organizational systems and achieve their business and personal goals.
I also help teams become high-performing; they come together with trust and support and they commit to their collective goals to deliver optimal results.
I coached a manager from an international professional services organization over four months, to increase her internal credibility. We assessed her strengths and explored how they can be leveraged. We also identified some patterns which she started replacing with more helpful ones. In addition, we considered new perspectives to help her empathize with and bring meaningful value to her colleagues. As a result of our partnership, she reported an increased self-awareness regarding her needs and values as well as a deeper self-confidence. This allowed her to have more productive and courageous conversations with her colleagues and superiors. Moreover, it empowered her to leverage her skills and bring more value to her team and therefore increase her credibility.
I coached a team of a renowned university over 7 weeks, leading to an improvement in 9 out of 10 team effectiveness measures, with 22% to 38% improvement in trust level, overall team effectiveness and commitment to team objectives. These results were achieved through individual and team coaching, as well as facilitated workshops that increased their team cohesiveness and performance.
For a not-for-profit organization wanting to expand their reach globally, I partnered with a team of coaches to design and coach senior executives to implement a culture change in alignment with their business strategy. They have reported impactful outcomes regarding shaping their workforce to deliver optimal results.
With over 20 years of business experience as a consulting actuary, leading teams and coaching colleagues and clients, I have partnered with and provided strategic guidance to managers and executives of organizations in the banking, services, communications, education, healthcare, not-for-profit, financial and technology sectors, to advance their organizational success and financial well-being. In addition, I have a proven track record of increasing team effectiveness, improving business processes and increasing employee engagement. Over the years, I have observed a broad range of human behavior and organizational systems, which I bring to my coaching conversations. I help clients navigate complex environments, improve performance and develop their leadership skills.
