“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” ~ Peter Drucker

You already know that, don’t you? Of course you do. Because you take ownership and make it happen. You work hard. You accomplish great things. You create a good life for yourself. And yet, perhaps you think or feel some of the following:

  • – I can’t seem to get control of my time and I’m working too hard.
  • – Balance. What’s that?
  • – Burnout is quickly on the horizon.
  • – I need to make sure that I’m spending my time strategically and wisely.
  • – I want to be a better leader.
  • – I want to create new habits.
  • – I want to bring all of myself to my work, and all of myself to my life.
  • – I want better, stronger relationships.
  • – I want to be happier.
  • – I want to be a better listener.
  • – My people aren’t doing what I need them to do.
  • – I want to lead more and manage less.
  • – I want to create a high-performance culture.
  • – We need a strategy but no one even agrees what strategy is.
  • – We have a strategy but it’s not getting done.
  • – I have to manage some challenging conflicts.
  • – We need to change and everyone is resisting.
  • – I’m getting feedback that I need to change a behavior.
  • – I have certain beliefs and habits that are holding me back.
  • – I need to communicate and present with more impact.
  • – I need to be more influential.
  • – I am stepping into a new role or phase and need to position myself to succeed.
  • – I want to continue to innovate in the new global/digital economy.

Do you want to go from great to greater?

If so, I strongly encourage you to consider working with an executive coach who will bring a set of coaching skills and tools, specifically designed to help you address your most pressing challenges and goals. Someone who will be in your corner, pushing you, supporting you, caring for you, and helping you create an effective path toward having the impact and results you want.

The secret of success

What if I told you that it starts and ends with connection?

First, a connection and understanding of yourself. What are your strengths, values and vision? Knowing yourself is the first step.

Then connecting to your goals – the ones that make the most sense now. Today and tomorrow (not yesterday).

What’s your “big why?” Why do you do what you do, and why do you want more?

Then connecting to your choices – both the conscious and subconscious ones. Do you have any idea how many choices you make on a daily basis? Countless. And every single one of them impacts your life, work, health, happiness and success. Being consciously aware of your choices can unlock many doors that may have seemed closed.

And then the outward connections and relationships… with your work/business, your team, your customers and your personal and professions networks.

You absolutely can create a better version of work and life.

I know your struggles and pain points.  After playing on the fields of marketing, management and entrepreneurship for over 20 years, holding positions at some of the most prestigious firms in NYC and Philadelphia, I know first-hand the stresses and challenges. After speaking all over the country and coaching top executives, I know the sad truth that it is often lonely at the top.

With 7 billion people on the planet, it’s not exactly easy to figure out who is (or should be) in your inner circle. Who do you trust to tell you the truth, listen with deep presence, help you make tough decisions and challenge you to be your best?

You give your all. You work hard. You love your family and friends. You try to balance your never-ending responsibilties. And sometimes you feel like you’re caught between a rock and a hard place.

But imagine… Imagine you could find joy and motivation again. Imagine you could feel connection. With your choices, with your people, with your life. Imagine facing each day with renewed confidence and excitement.

I see those wishes become reality every day. Everything I do in my coaching, consulting and speaking work aims to bring more connection and conscious choice, which results in more success.

Business and life don’t exist in separate spheres.  All the things that make life wonderful – vitality, resonance, trust, presence, love, joy, fulfilling relationships, adventure, meaning – also make business more profitable and more fun.

To make important and lasting changes, you need someone in your corner. Someone with good questions, helpful reflection, strategy, compassion, encouragement and fearless honesty. Someone to help you push past your obstacles and discover how to connect with the people, processes and actions that will help you reach your goals.

I work with companies and leaders who are eager for effective solutions to their problems.  They’re ready to “level up,” and play a more conscious game. Where connection comes first, and success naturally follows. Where challenges are met with open minds and open hearts. Where you no longer feel alone, and know that you have someone on your side, with complete commitment, full attention and a customized approach to help you achieve higher levels of personal and professional success.

Here’s to more connection, less isolation. More listening, less guessing. More progress and change. More real deal, less faking. More joy and success, less stress.
