Become the Boss Everyone Wishes They Had
I help social impact leaders become amazing bosses, so they can build a talented and diverse workforce, stop wasting resources on office politics, and focus on what matters most.
In a typical 6 month engagement, I help you do 4 big things:
Address the stressful interpersonal stuff that’s been dragging you down, so you can focus on what really matters.
Build strong professional relationships, so you have people to depend on, and aren't burning out from always doing everything by yourself.
Develop a talented and diverse workforce that can carry your work forward, allowing you to leave a legacy that will last beyond your tenure.
Lead in a way that is highly effective AND aligns with your progressive values around inclusion, who you want to be, how you want to treat people, and the kind of example you want to be setting.
Key competencies I’ve helped my clients build:
To have difficult conversations, and speak and hear hard truths in ways that build -- rather than burn -- bridges
To hone and connect with your instincts as an engine of insight and creativity, especially in times of uncertainty
To navigate the often tricky identity and power dynamics that arise in any organization — especially a social change organization.
To “manage up,” with difficult bosses, board members, donors, etc.
Connect with your intuition, discerning when to trust it, and when to check it
Create routines and practices of self care and resilience
The art of giving and receiving direct, honest, and compassionate feedback
To influence and inspire, and to build trust
Bridge misunderstandings with people with different (or difficult) personalities and communication styles
Set boundaries that get you out of reactive mode, and support long-term prioritizing
Qualities I help my clients cultivate:
The unshakeable confidence that arises when you know yourself deeply
The self-awareness to catch yourself in self-sabotage
The resilience to not succumb to burnout
The clarity to know and speak your truth
The mindfulness to stay centered in the storm
I would love to work with you if:
You see your challenges as more than just problems to be fixed. You see them as opportunities to learn, grow, and step more fully into your leadership.
You believe that social change takes strong leaders, so you have a high level of commitment to personal and leadership development.
You are at your best and most engaged when you are learning, and being supported and challenged to stretch beyond your edges.
You would welcome the space to clarify and connect with your inner wisdom, as well as encouraging and sometimes challenging feedback.
You are looking for personal growth that is deeply rooted — not surface-level tweaks. You want change that lasts and are ready to do the work to get there.
Here's how it works:
A typical coaching engagement lasts about 6 months.
Our engagement will be a mix of in-depth personal development coaching, thought-partnership, and hands-on practice.
We meet either weekly, or every-other-week, depending on your needs. We can meet by video, or phone.
I will send you resources, things to practice, and journalling questions by email, as needed.
You shoot me an email or text between our sessions and check-ins, anytime you need additional support.
Optional 360 Feedback Report: Some folks will reap huge rewards from taking the simple step of asking peers for feedback in a structured and comprehensive way. If you want to learn more, let me know when you contact me. And I’ll let you know if it sounds like it might be helpful in your situation.
