I see your higher potential. I will help you see it, and believe it, too.
With my support you will move confidently towards your highest potential – in your career, your business and your life.
Using techniques and tools I’ve learned on the front lines of business working for Fortune 50 companies, tech startups and nonprofits, I offer established and emerging leaders powerful, high-road shortcuts on their journeys to success. I help them put an authentic shine on their personal brands to successfully engage their teams and rise to greater challenges.
I help organizations unlock possibilities lying dormant in their people, too. In consultation with me, executive teams design culture-shifting change management programs to engage their employees’ higher potential. Leveraging InPower Coaching’s scalable, online methodologies and extensive video/workbook libraries we give each person tools for greater capacity and impact.
Coaching, consulting and speaking to women in leadership, I help them emerge into their full potential and find their authentically confident voice. With my support women become known for the things they like best about themselves.
As a speaker, meeting facilitator and workshop leader, I motivate and outfit audiences to lead change and explore the highest potential in themselves and their organizations.
