Approach

Taking a whole-person approach leads to results that significantly increase leadership effectiveness.

Be Empowered by Transformational Leadership Coaching

A performance coach focuses on your specific goals and outcomes. They are transactional by nature and concerned with improving immediate performance. A transformational leadership coach considers the whole person, going deeper—to your core—to explore your foundation, personality, barriers, and where you want to be in your professional and personal life. Your immediate goals represent only the starting point of our journey, one in which you will discover your purpose and how to lead with your values. Together we’ll focus on heightening your awareness, embodying your authenticity and helping you forge high-trust relationships—true catalysts for change and growth, and defining characteristics of transformational leaders.

Courage
Turn inward
Be Courageous
Turn inward

This work is foundational to the success of any transformation. It’s a conscious journey of self-authoring, embodying your full potential, passion and purpose, rooted in who you are, where you want to go, what you’re willing to face, and the changes you’re willing to make. It all starts with turning inward. Be courageous; dive into yourself.

Compassion
Turn towards each other
Be Compassionate
Turn towards each other

Compassion ensures that your team and employees feel comfortable enough to take risks, speak up and push creative boundaries. Setting the intention to grow through your relationships has the power to significantly enhance and transform your business, your career and your personal life. If they are engaged authentically, employees, clients and stakeholders become your best value creators, empowering your leadership, relationships and business to reach new heights. Be compassionate – grow through relationships.

Congruence
Walk your talk
Be Congruent
Walk your talk

Do you lead with integrity? Do you live by the values you articulate? Are you transparent and honest? When your intentions don’t align with your actions, you lack congruence. This dissonance will permeate your relationships and challenge your credibility. A congruent leader gains others’ trust, respect and dedication through a consistent and demonstrated commitment to values.

Curiosity
Listen to understand
Be Curious
Listen to understand

When was the last time you granted yourself permission to simply explore? Curiosity empowers you to pause and ask questions that will transform your leadership. It means understanding that “business as usual” won’t get you to the places you need to go. It welcomes the discovery of deeply hidden assumptions that may be limiting you or others. Where will your curiosity take you?

Creativity
Embrace new perspectives
Be Creative
Embrace new perspectives

Transformative leaders understand that creativity and innovation are essential components of transformation. By fostering creativity and providing a welcoming, safe and supportive platform for the generation of original ideas, your organization will not only benefit from your colleagues’ collective input, but your team will also be more enthusiastic and invested in the organization’s success.

Consciousness
Be conscious of your whole self

Be conscious of your whole self

When we become aware of our self-limiting beliefs and have the courage to face them, we create the space to stop being reactive. Being aware of your thoughts, actions and reactions as they happen is the first step toward being conscious. Transformation becomes evident as you reframe your own reactive tendencies, freeing you up to listen, understand, honour and respond to others’ needs without fear or prejudice. Ultimately, you will see the impact of this personal growth on your organization’s bottom line. When we lead with consciousness, we lead with a higher level of purpose.

Coach-like
Empower your people to find their own solutions
Be Coach-like
Empower your people to find their own solutions

As you begin to transform yourself through coaching, you may seek opportunities to actively share the skills you’re learning and practicing with others in your organization—skills such as engaging in courageous conversations, active listening, or staying open and compassionate, especially in the face of challenging situations. If you take pride in solving problems by yourself, your challenge now becomes empowering others to find their own solutions. By extending this trust, you create opportunities for the personal growth of each team member. And by responding to crucial conversations and feedback with curiosity, you and your team will always feel aligned and supported.
