What would you say three years from now if you called to tell me that you had just lived the best three years in your life, professionally and personally?
Executive & Leadership Coaching
Executive coaching takes courage. Yours, to look straight at your starlight, illuminate your blind spots, know what you want or admit that you don't, be challenged, unlearn, and learn anew. Mine to hold a safe space, get out of the way, and speak truth to power.
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) daily. You strive to perform with purpose and integrity. I help you raise your game as a conscious, courageous leader.
What change do you want to see in yourself, your life, your world, or your organization?
It's your journey in the unknown.
The steps are yours to take.
Will you dare?
Executive Presence, 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.
With a blend of executive coaching, training, and consulting, I help you sharpen your skills and boost your confidence as a strategic, effective communicator.
As a wordsmith and storyteller, I'll help you with the arc, key messages, and some memorable lines. As a singer and a music lover, I'll help you with your voice. As a martial artist, I'll help you with posture and body language.
Here, you'll discover how entrepreneur, artist, and adventurer Theodore Fairhurst took his talks to a higher level.
You have ideas worth sharing.
There is a fire in your belly.
The stage is yours to own.
Mind Fitness & Flow Performance Coaching
You know the feeling of being "in the zone." Time stops, focus peaks, inspiration flows, and 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 will coach you how to do it.
Here is the inspiring story of how piano maestro Lawrence Djindjaratze teaches his students to play at the speed of their joy.
CEO coach Shirzad Chamine said, "Your mind is your best friend, but it can also be your worst enemy. Your mind is constantly sabotaging your potential for both performance and happiness. All your negative emotions, including stress, are the result of self-sabotage. Mental fitness training strengthens the part of your brain that serves you, quiets the part that sabotages you, and allows you to handle life's challenges with a more positive mindset and less stress. The benefits are immediate and sustained improvements in both wellbeing and performance."
Everybody knows to go to the gym to get ripped. But how about developing the habit of training our minds?
I invite every coaching client to begin their coaching journey with a six-week mind fitness boot camp, with app-based daily practices reinforcing new mind fitness habits. The program is also available for teams. We can achieve our full potential only from a place of clarity, focus, ease, and flow.
Slow is fast.
Experience ease and flow.
Become the true master of your mind.
