I was trained as an Executive Coach through Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Program (2006), am certified by the International Coach Federation as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and I coach CEOs, senior executives and emerging talent. I established and led several global and national coaching practices for organizations as a corporate practitioner.
I have also served as an executive coach for Harvard Business School’s Executive Education programs. In these programs my coaching work focused on individual assessment and development planning combined with group coaching focused on team dynamics.
Executive Coaching is an individualized development experience designed to accomplish business objectives including ongoing development, succession planning and to support role transitions. My executive coaching process is comprised of four phases:
- Assessment: Conduct 360 assessment through interviews and a survey tool in combination with a personality assessment to identify strengths and blind spots.
- Action Planning: Use the assessment data to develop a Leadership Development Plan to share with the organizational sponsor.
- Practice: Work over the next 6 or 12 months to integrate new practices into one’s leadership routine and meet regularly to discuss progress.
- Evaluation: After 6 or 12 months, conduct a self-evaluation and reassess progress with stakeholders to evaluate progress.
Through these four phases, my executive coaching process is focused on creating a safe space to facilitate self-awareness that leads to actionable plans and sustainable change.
