Red_and_yellow_tulipsAs signs of spring begin to appear, consider what steps you can take to plant the seeds for your career renewal and professional growth.

What are you doing to nourish yourself daily? Weekly? Annually?
What do you need to let go to make room for a growth opportunity?
What results do you want to see emerge in 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? 

If you are ready to develop your career renewal plan, contact me for a complimentary coaching conversation.

Introducing Transformational Leadership Coaching

Whether you are in a leadership role or aspiring to one, I will help you to clarify what kind of leader you want to be, shed light on what is possible and gently push you to succeed.

Coaching can benefit you in any of these areas:

  • Advancing in your career
  • Setting up a new business or project
  • Managing a team
  • Increasing your influence
  • Building self-confidence and presence
  • Improving professional and personal relationships
  • Balancing work and life priorities

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes”
 Albert Einstein

Coaching is available in person or by phone.
