“The secret of getting
ahead is getting started.”
Mark Twain, Author
If you’re looking for one-on-one focus, individual coaching is the way to go. Whether you work at a company and would like to engage me as a consultant for your employee(s)… or you’re interested in partnering with a coach independently, there are a number of ways to set up executive coaching arrangements. Here’s a look at coaching topics, who I coach, and scheduling and cost.
I coach business people through all phases of the career cycle. I understand:
The Opportunities: Exciting projects, big promotions, kick-ass new business wins, gulp-worthy raises, new jobs, awesome clients, awe-inspiring colleagues, high-performing teams.
The Challenges: Fear of change, (I call this disease FOC), tough bosses, tight budgets, heartbreaking business losses, promotion pass-overs, direct report performance problems, resistant teams, overloaded calendars, difficult colleagues, self-doubt, burnout.
The Questions: What’s my career plan? What’s next? What’s my real purpose? How can I live out my dreams? Should I make a job change – and to what? Am I brave enough to make the jump?
I’ve experienced nearly all of these myself and have an in-the-trenches view of what it takes to succeed, fail, bounce back – on the job and within yourself.
Who I Coach
My ideal client is someone I can relate to and honestly say: “I’ve been there. I get it.” That’s not because what worked for me will work for you. It’s because I believe our shared understanding gives us common ground from which to build a trusting relationship that better helps you discover your own right answers.
I coach executives and business people who are juggling the realities of their careers and lives – and striving to achieve something better or different.
A few examples include: a promotion, meeting/beating your numbers, stress management, more work/life balance, politics, greater self-confidence, improved leadership skills, increased self-awareness, better conflict resolution, enhanced relationships, etc.
Given my background in communications, PR, and marketing, I know firsthand what it’s like to work – and thrive – in this industry. I’ve handled the lack of understanding from senior leaders and other disciplines, faced the what-feels-like-uphill battle of getting approval for new ideas and staff, dealt with legal restraints, weighed agency vs. corporate positions, managed the demands of senior-level execs and a 24/7 news cycle, and more.
Whether you believe in leaning in or leaning out, I believe business women bring to bear special talents and face unique challenges. Being one myself, I applaud the way we help each other, lead with authenticity, and never cease working toward balance in work/life. I also understand our challenges and opportunities in the workplace – and within ourselves.
Scheduling & Cost
My coaching packages are reasonably priced at a monthly (not hourly) rate that offers my clients unlimited contact – covering as many scheduled coaching sessions and additional exchanges (via email, text, brief call) as desired each month.
As for the scheduled coaching sessions, we typically meet by phone, FaceTime/Skype, or in-person on a weekly or biweekly basis for 45 to 60 minutes per session. You choose the frequency and timing that feels right to you – and it may change as our engagement evolves. We can schedule standing appointments or calendar them session-to-session if you need more flexibility.
Just as coaching is customized, so is the pricing. I offer pricing packages to suit both individuals and corporations. I also extend discounts for extended engagements and multiple corporate clients. Other factors influencing pricing include: type of engagement, career stage, coaching topic, level of support needed, etc. Please reach out so we can determine what pricing fits your needs.
