The inner terrain of leadership
Leadership, with all its outward-facing responsibilities, ultimately leads us inward. It is our understanding of who we are and how we work best that enables us to contribute our full gifts. It is our capacity to be with all we are -- our light and our shadow -- that enables us to grow into our own wholeness through leadership's pressures.
I help executives and leaders traverse this inner terrain. I have supported clients to:
uncover their gifts and strengths
clarify vision and purpose
develop their leadership voice, style and presence
identify and lead from their core values
increase self-confidence and trust
build genuine interpersonal connection
strengthen intuition and inner knowing
find balance and inner equilibrium
develop more effective approaches to handling stress and overwhelm
foster organizational cultures of trust
I reserve a portion of my coaching practice for Asian-American women who are hearing the call to bring themselves more powerfully into their lives and work, in and outside of formal leadership positions.
Welcome. I'm glad you're here.
I spent the first fifteen years of my professional life as an attorney and director of non-profit organizations. It was the best preparation I could have had for coaching people through the challenges of leadership. I understand the weight of being the person in charge - the constant undercurrent of worry and second-guessing, the isolation, and the discomfort of facing your inner demons.
As a coach, I've supported leaders to make the transformative inner shifts that make outward success possible, with tremendous benefit to their teams and organizations. What I find thrilling is seeing clients experience the flow, energy and deep satisfaction of leading and living from their unique blueprint.
