Leadership Coaching

Strong Leaders Create High Performing Organizations

Investing in people — the sector’s most valuable resource

  • Do you want to accelerate your professional growth?
  • Are you new to managing people?
  • Are you in a new leadership position?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed?
  • Do you want a confidential thought partner?

I work with leaders like you.

Coaching is an inexpensive, high impact way to develop and support leaders.

I support both emerging and established leaders in their next-level development with customized coaching that brings focus, balance, and transformational performance.

Clients who work with me allocate time better and are less reactive. They are better able to stay focused on what’s most important. They have the space to think strategically. They work more creatively with donors and their team. They efficiently and effectively manage up, down, and all around. They are able to recruit, retain and manage exceptional teammates.  They embrace change as opportunity.  They know that personal growth and transformation is key to effective leadership.
