Work with Me
Lack of emotional fitness in the workplace creates chaos and drama--for individuals, teams and organizations. That means lost productivity, drained energy, and squandering of precious time. Trying to "wait it out" doesn't work and only makes the day-to-day interactions more painful.
I can help.
Emotional Fitness Coaching
Joy + Freedom
1:1 coaching is the quickest way to help leaders become emotionally fit. Similar to becoming physically fit, emotional fitness requires more than just knowing what to do. It requires consistent practice doing the right things, with the right feedback.
Over time, leaders learn to recognize what they are feeling, “catch themselves” from going to an ineffective place (e.g., defensiveness), channel their emotions productively, and then re-engage others, with more power and clarity. The result is more freedom and joy, because you are being your best self, no matter the circumstances.
Ready to get pointed in the right direction? I start with a complimentary consultation, where you will gain an understanding of your current emotional fitness. I’ll outline clear next steps to create the change that you are desiring.
Emotional Fitness for Leadership Teams
Create Your Dream Team
I work with leadership teams to develop their emotional fitness. Having an emotionally fit team means more creativity and courage for addressing complex challenges, better decisions when the stakes are high, and faster execution in the face of chaos. Your team will learn tools and practices for building and maintaining emotional fitness.
What else can you expect? Increased employee engagement. Workplaces take their cue from the top. When an executive team is operating with emotional fitness, it sends a signal to the entire organization. Behaviors that create fear and anxiety (e.g., manipulation, intimidation, bullying) will no longer be tolerated. Without the usual dose of stress-inducing emotions, employees can blossom, grow, and take the risk to be more of themselves at work.
After an initial discovery phase to understand the team, we’ll co-create a year-long interactive program that creates connection and trust among team members, while fitting the busy schedules of executives.
