It’s your life. Choose to LEAD it.

The Executive Happiness Coach® can help.

Are you successful and stressed?

The world places impossible demands on senior leaders and business owners. Do you notice that every time you get more responsibility, your initial excitement gives way to overwhelm? Are you concerned that the next thing to land on your desk will take you down? Despite your success, are you turning into your own worst critic? With the world moving at light speed, even highly skilled leaders can feel stressed and out of balance; and once you lose your confidence, that trickles down to others, people disconnect, and the business suffers.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

The good news is that you can LEARN how to be a better leader. You can be confident and decisive as necessary – or caring and responsive when appropriate. You can learn to set high standards as well as establish strong boundaries for yourself, your team, and your business. You can make things happen because you know how to make direct requests and hold people accountable to their commitments. Best of all, you can take care of business AND take care of yourself.

If you’re so smart, why can’t you do this already?

If you are like most people, you started out being good at doing some kind of work. As you moved up you had little to no leadership skills training, but you were smart enough to muddle through most people situations…and you always had those technical skills to fall back upon. Suddenly, you must operate at a new level where Leading is far more important than Doing, and you have never been in this place before. You don’t even know what you don’t know!

Shift From “What are you doing?” To “How are you being?”

People judge great leaders less by how much they do than by how well they inspire us to get things done. Your people notice how you communicate, how you respond to issues, and how you affect other people in the organization. I help YOU to become a better leader by “holding up a mirror” to show you where you are now, helping you paint a clear picture of a better future, and then supporting you as you build powerful new behaviors that will transform how you “show up” in your life and your work.

You can lead better with less stress.
