My North Star is empowering leaders to make conscious choices from a place of courage and purpose. What guides my coaching philosophy is my belief that we are all works in progress and that what got us here won’t take us to another place. We are all work in progress, and if we want to see a change, we need to be the change we want to see, holding ourselves accountable for that.

My North Star is believing that everyone has greatness within them and my role as a coach is to enable this greatness. I create a safe yet challenging environment where my clients have the space to explore the beliefs that are keeping them stuck and work with them to explore workplace challenges and opportunities to help them co-create strategies for a thriving future.

My North Star is “vision.” Leaders – and everyone is a leader from Individual Contributors to the C-suite – have the ability to create limitless possibilities – and it begins when their vision is clearly defined and aligned with their organization’s vision. Vision is where I begin for myself and for everyone I work with.

My North Star consists of 2 Chinese Proverbs:

 – There are three essentials to leadership: clarity, humility and courage
 – Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow

My North Star is always leveraging the interplay between Vision (setting Direction and Purpose), Leadership (building Capabilities and Alignment), and Execution (Extreme Customer Focus and Goal Achievement). 
I do this by providing a balance of coaching and mentoring to empower clients to address their priorities and challenges.

My North Star is connection. If we are able to connect as human beings, understand each other, and speak the same language, then half of the work is done 😊
