You feel the weight of extraordinary change.
Every day is different. Nothing feels stable.
Grief is universal.
There's no rule book on how to be a leader when the world is in crisis.
There's no manual for how to help others who are struggling while also helping yourself.
Tomorrow's best leaders will be defined by what they do next.
It is clear that, if there was ever a time for fundamental re-invention, it is now.
Today you are breaking ground on a completely different future.
The work starts and ends with powerful, emotionally aware leaders.
Emotional intelligence was important.
Now it's the bedrock on which we build everything that comes next.
Deep, rapid emotional intelligence is as simple as knowing your values, telling your story, and writing a vision for your future.
Elevating your emotional intelligence it is the key to 90% of changes you'd like to see at work and in your beautiful life.
I am a professional coach with specialized training emotional intelligence, behavioral science, neuroscience, change, trauma & grief, and executive presence.
When I can help advance a person's understanding and increase their space on the spectrum of leadership development, we make room for deep guidance and support as they navigate growth, communication, trust and new ways to lead.
What do you value? You've never really been asked how you feel about things at work but too often you feel stepped on.
Your boundaries get broken regularly.
You admit that you don't love the pace of "rapid-fire" meetings. Possibly when you speak up you are misunderstood and or called things like "harsh and insensitive".
You feel like you are losing your sense of purpose.
Does your team see you, hear you, and see your value? Working remotely leaves you feeling isolated and disengaged.
Have you climbed to the top of your industry quickly, or blazed through the ranks? Founded your own company? Reached the C-Suite?
Who do you talk to for help and support?
Your achievements are formidable - you're a force to be reckoned with. And yet, it all comes with a price.
Being at the top can be so very lonely.
Right now it's all magnified, as you try to sort through your struggle and the challenges of those you manage.
You're feeling the gaps in clarity and interpersonal conflict between members of your senior leadership team. As a group you're experiencing conflict.
The team is feeling defeated.
Some members of the team are too harsh. Others are disappearing. They are different and they don't understand each other.
Trust is missing. The strain is real.
As the leader, you're not sure how to pull everything back into place and imagine a better future.
You have lost excitement, joy, plans, and connection. People need people to process things and you have been so distanced.
You're grieving. We are all grieving.
And normal life goes on, leaving you with grief upon grief.
Death. Racism. Riots. Violence. Fear. Buyouts. Acquisitions. Hirings. Firings.
Grief is officially the biggest issue at work today.
You and your team need expert trauma support to process all of the loss.
