An effective leader is a natural facilitator and coach. As a founder and CEO, I’ve managed teams for years. And, I’ve managed those teams under extreme stress. I’ve had the pleasure of  maintaining those relationships for years, as people have continued to reach out when they were in career transitions, becoming leaders or managers themselves, or simply wanted to work through difficult decisions.


Becoming intentional about coaching in a structured way happened very organically. After I exited my most recent company, I was facilitating leadership workshops and speaking at conferences. People would approach me afterwards for advice, or to tell me they appreciated my candid and bold perspective. They asked if I could help them navigate challenges in their own careers. I immediately had questions and wanted to dive in, to help them reframe and be introspective about those challenges. I love helping people realize they already have most of the answers. It quickly made sense to be intentional about it, and here we are!

And, learn how to be comfortable with discomfort. Most importantly, learn how to just be you - in any situation.
