You feel the weight of extraordinary change.
Grief is universal.
You feel like you've gotten way off track. There's no rule book on how to be a leader when the world is in crisis.
The best leaders will be defined by what they do next.
You feel 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 of the collective starts with powerful individual leaders.
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.
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've never really been asked how you feel about things at work but you sometimes 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.
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.
I am a professional coach with specialized training in trauma and grief, emotional intelligence, behavioral science, neuroscience, and executive presence. In a relatively new profession with these specialties I belong to a very small and elite group, numbering only about 500 coaches globally.
I focus my work on understanding an individual’s place on the spectrum of leadership development and offering deep guidance and support as they navigate growth, communication, trust and new ways to lead.
