Is This for You?

Are you a senior HR Executive wanting to play a bigger game in your profession and organization, or perhaps start your own business or do something totally different?
This executive coaching program is designed for senior HR professionals – ideally VPs of HR or HR Directors reporting to a VP of HR or Chief People Officer, or HR Business Partner with business unit HR responsibility. The thread that binds participants together is that they are all looking to play a bigger game and find greater meaning beyond themselves in what they are doing professionally. They want to engage deeply and are asking themselves powerful questions.


  • What is the BIG GAME I want to be playing professionally? Do I have a game strategy?
  • What is my WHY? Am I doing what I truly want to be doing, and if not, how do I change the game? How am I making a difference? What is the mark I want to leave?
  • Do I possess the executive presence and confidence required for me to achieve my career goal? Am I integrated and respected by the C-Suite for who I truly am? Is the culture of my organization or my clients in sync with who I want to be?
  • What is propelling me forward? How am I limiting myself? What is my self-messaging? Am I stuck in perfectionism, a “doer/fixer mode,” an non-productive leaderships style?”What kind of leader do I want to be?
  • Am I  inspiring  in what I do? How do I engage at all levels, across generations, different industries, globally/virtually. Am I effectively leveraging the multitude of strategies that are out there, including technology and social media? Am I staying current or falling behind?
  • Do I have a personal brand that works for me? How do I want to show up at work/in life? Am I able to be authentic in what I am doing: show up in all my glory-quirks and all? Do I own my own unique values?
  • Am I in the right place? How do I know when it is time to move on?
  • Do I have the support system I need to advance professionally?  Do I know the difference between “networking” to connecting and building community as a lifelong process. Who do I need to connect with? What is the balance between leveraging technology and face-to-face engagement?


At the end of this executive coaching program, you can expect some or all of these outcomes:

  • Understanding and ownership of your own unique brand and values.
  • Improved awareness of your own leadership style,  executive presence and relationship with the C-Suite!
  • Leadership aspiration: how you want to show up and what’s holding you back, propelling you forward.
  • Greater confidence and validation from other senior executives that have walked in your shoes.
  • A strong support system, including an authentic community with 8 other program participants that have shared deeply of themselves with you.
  • Knowledge of your own limitations and strengths as a leader.
  • Strategies for managing your career -and anchoring your journey in how you want to make a difference-  rather than being at it’s mercy.
  • A clear sense of whether you are keeping up or falling behind and strategies for staying fresh on 21st century leadership and strategies for leveraging emerging technologies to engage and reach your professional goals.
