Don't Overlook This!
It makes sense that if you are taking your team and your organization to its next level of success, you need to take yourself there, too.
The founder of Best Buy, Dick Shultz, was adamant that when he had new goals to take Best Buy to its next level, he needed to get to his next level of leadership in order to succeed. And he would hire a new executive coach to help him get there.
What are you doing to move yourself and your team to the next level of leadership performance?
We know from research at Harvard that one of the most important things leaders can do is take the time to step back and reflect. We also know that it usually doesn’t happen unless you have support and a structure in place that prevents you from giving that time away.
Take the Time
Successful and happy leaders take time for themselves and approach their work from a strategic mindset that includes thoughtfulness, mindfulness and wisdom.
Our fast-paced technology world is full of data and information. What we need most is leaders at all levels who can step back and bring thoughtfulness and wisdom to the table. And that takes a commitment to creating time for YOU and your team to think, reflect and grow.
I’ve been coaching leaders for 20+ years. I know what I’m doing, I have processes that work and I’m passionate about guiding leaders to their next level.
This year I have more bandwidth to work with leaders who want to grow.
Are you one of the growth-minded leaders committed to your own development?

Executive Women's Change-Leadership Roundtables
Limited to groups of 15 experienced women leaders with VP/Director-level responsibilities. These peers are from non-competing organizations who want to learn and grow together, solve problems, celebrate success and be part of a network of support and encouragement. Women who participate consistently find their Roundtable experience valuable, practical and inspiring. The 2020 program year kicks off on March 26 and March 31.
A Cascading Effect
Your development matters to both you and your organization. A coach provides an unbiased third-party perspective. When you work with someone who has experience handling the challenges that leaders face, your growth can create a cascading effect throughout your organization.
