Executive & Leadership Coaching
You are a senior or an emerging leader ready to step into your next level. You understand that "what got you here won't get you there" (a good read by Marshall Goldsmith). You sense that "the way we are working is not working" (a recommended book by Tony Schwartz). Like a Renaissance explorer sailing around Cape Horn in a storm, you navigate VUCA (Vulnerability, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) each day. To perform with purpose and integrity, your organization must transform. Transformation, first, starts with you.
I help you raise your game as a conscious leader.
It's your journey in the unknown.
The steps are yours to take.
Storytelling & Presentation Coaching
To lead transformations is to revise the script. More, it is to chisel or – better – let unfold entirely new narratives. Storytelling is a strategic skill in your leadership toolkit.
All eyes turn to you when the stakes are high for a keynote address, an investor presentation, or a strategic pitch. As a wordsmith and a storyteller, I'll help you with the arc, key messages, and some memorable lines. As a singer and a lover of music, I'll help you with your voice. As a martial artist, I'll help you with posture and body language.
Here is the tale of how I coached Montreal entrepreneur and mountaineering record holder Theodore Fairhurst for his talks.
What's your emerging narrative?
Let us reflect on your story.
Flow Performance Coaching
You know the feeling of being "in the zone." Time stops, focus peaks, inspiration flows, all moves are deft. In taekwondo, or as I was learning the piano, I have been a keen student of flow states for over twenty years. Then I wondered: can we work and live in flow too? In short: yes, we can, I can coach you how to.
Here is the inspiring story of how piano maestro Lawrence Djintcharadze teaches his students how to play effortlessly at the speed of their joy.
Slow is fast.
All flows at the speed of your joy.
Love after love
The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you
all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
Derek Walcott (1930-2017)
Here, you are.
