I am a Leadership Coach and Change Management consultant to individuals and executive leadership, helping them successfully navigate their most challenging career and corporate transformations. My areas of expertise include behavioral coaching and change management, strategic thinking and planning, leadership coaching and professional facilitation.
I also conduct career transition and career development coaching for a wide range of individuals and corporate clients.
I coached a senior executive through a major BPO transformation affecting Finance, Customer Service and Human Capital. Despite his reluctance to embrace the outsourcing model, through coaching we were able to identify and capitalize on synergies between the US and off-shore teams resulting in high levels of benefit realization and ROI.
I coached a corporate security executive for a US-based global organization. As a result of our work, she has been able to advance in terms of areas of responsibility, received significant salary increases despite announced corporate budgetary restraints, and developed a higher level of satisfaction in her current role and career path.
I have worked with senior management at some of the world’s most well-known brands and bring business expertise from global publishing (Pearson), consulting (PricewaterhouseCoopers, Oracle, Aon Hewitt), pharmaceutical (Merck & Co, Wyeth/Pfizer, WebMD), consumer package goods (Cadbury/Kraft/Mondelez), financial services (Prudential) and telecom (Verizon).

Coaching conversations are driven entirely by the client’s goals, and intentionally build on the client’s strengths. My coaching process, which focuses on asking powerful questions, supports a leader’s ability to listen to their own intuition about out how to make potentially transformational choices. Coaching topics are determined by the client and might include: strengthening management and decision-making strategies; creating and implementing action plans; expanding communication skills; improving time management; enhancing self-awareness, confidence and authenticity; cultivating leadership “presence;” mapping next steps towards another position with greater responsibility and impact; developing, personally, into a more spacious and visionary leader; and increasing job satisfaction by enjoying a well-balanced life.
