About twenty years and what feels like a lifetime ago, my leadership style earned me the nickname “Napoleon.” I told myself this reference to my short stature and dictatorial approach was affectionate, but let’s be honest. Likening anyone to an egomaniacal conqueror is far from a complement, even under the best of circumstances.
With lagging results, unmet expectations and strained relationships in my wake, I was left to know beyond a shadow of doubt my leadership methods were ineffective without any clear sense of what I was doing wrong. It was not until a moment of divine intervention (read the full story here) that I finally saw the light and discovered how to be an effective leader.
Ultimately, the early struggles in my professional career made me a better coach because I truly understand the challenges leaders face.
I know how it feels to be utterly defeated by criticism and negative feedback
when you are doing your best to make everyone successful.
I understand what happens when you bury yourself in tasks under pressure,
and become completely ineffective with your time and energy.
I know how draining it is to spend your time holding everyone accountable
when no one seems to care as much as you do.
I understand what it’s like when everyone wants something different
from you and you have nothing left to give.
Although my leadership career began with a rocky start, it continues to this day with a passionate commitment to learning the insights, skills and tools necessary to get it right. I learned valuable lessons about successful leadership and codified them into successful leadership practices and principles that inform every aspect of my coaching perspective.
Leadership is a skill you can cultivate, not a trait you were born with.
Effective leaders achieve results and nurture relationships at the same time.
Leaders do not have all the answers, they empower those who do.
Leadership fulfillment comes from the achievements of those you develop.
Leadership greatness happens when challenges become the fuel to support success in others.
Today, I combine professional experience with advanced education and coaching credentials to provide a multifaced approach to cultivating potential in others. I am relentless in my dedication to understanding what it takes to be a successful leader and motivated to teach the impact of quality relationships on leadership success. I am truly humbled by the opportunity to serve others as the coach I wish I had when I started by career.
Let’s work together to design a professional life you love and discover the leader you are meant to be.
