Feedback and Coaching

For the successful leader
who wants to be even more successful

Feedback is a gift

Even the most successful people have unseen areas—behaviors that unknowingly impede relationships or hold them back from greater achievements. 

Feedback sheds light on these unseen areas by showing us how our actions land with the people closest to us. Spoiler alert: sometimes the impact of what we say or do doesn't match our intentions, as good as they might be. Equipped with this data, we can make informed decisions about what behaviors we want to adjust. This helps us become even more effective in our relationships at work and at home.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to collect candid feedback when in a leadership position. Positional power dynamics and fear of reprisal may limit what colleagues are willing to share, even on high functioning teams. It can also be hard to determine what to do with feedback once it's delivered.

I offer coaching services to help leaders collect and make sense of feedback and decide what they want to do about it.
