It can be lonely at the top.

You deserve a sounding board, a safe space to be vulnerable and get clear about challenging issues at work.

Most of our executive coaching clients are in one of three phases of their career. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • You’re in the first few years of your leadership role. You walked into a challenging situation and face lofty expectations. You spend much of your time playing catch up, trying to stabilize your organization and or make order out of chaos. Although no one probably knows it, you sometimes doubt that you have what it takes or worry that people will discover that you’re an impostor.
  • You’re mid-way through your career. You’ve been working incredibly hard from the very beginning, and you wonder when you’ll hit burnout (or if you’re there already). Successful as you are, you need to learn more effective time management and communication skills so that you can have more balance in your life, while still making an impact at work.
  • You’re planning to leave your position within the next few years. You want to leave a legacy that people remember. But sometimes you worry that all of your efforts aren’t leading to lasting change. You want to make sure that your organization succeeds in the long run and that the next generation carries your mission forward.

Regardless of where you are in your career, executive coaching can help you:

  • Stay connected to your values, purpose, and vision Buddhist temple in the mountains, where executive coaching has some of its roots

  • Engage staff at work and decrease turnover

  • Set realistic and inspiring expectations for your staff
  • Successfully lead change efforts at work
  • Experience greater work-life balance

What is executive coaching, exactly?

Over the past few decades, organizations have increasingly turned to professional coaching to help high-performing leaders enhance their behavior at work. Also known as leadership coaching and management coaching, executive coaching is a personalized method of leadership development that helps leaders develop new leadership competencies, strengths, and skills that last.

As opposed to pre-packaged leadership training or professional development courses, which have varying rates of success, professional coaching directly addresses the clients’ needs. With the help of executive coaching, our clients hone their communication skills, improve time management, accomplish their goals, and reach their big visions faster than they would on their own. We maintain high ethical standards including confidentiality and offer objective feedback and guidance.

Tess, Start-Up VP

tesss-photoI’m the only woman on an all-male executive team at a start-up company, and at first, I had a difficult time feeling like I had a place on the team. Before I met Katherine, I was caught in a cycle of analysis paralysis, and nothing was really changing. Now, I have a much better understanding of what I want, and I’ve been able to actually change my situation, rather than just thinking about fixing it.

Katherine helped me realize that for real change, I need to look within. I now listen to myself in a much deeper way, instead of just hanging out in my head. Rather than looking to other people to feel good about myself, I’m tapping into what I know to be true about who I am and what I’m capable of. Instead of being passive, I now know how to take control and shape how I experience my life (work and otherwise).

I’ve taken so many classes on self-growth, and two main things set Katherine apart. First, she has a style that’s zero judgment. Many people in the “coaching” field have a certain vibe that makes it hard for me to feel like I can be my full self. Katherine, on the other hand, is completely accepting and real, and working with her has allowed me to get to a place that is super authentic.

Second, the tools and teachings she offers are much more practical and easy-to-apply than a lot of the other stuff out there. Many classes give you the background and theory, but then you don’t know what to do with it. She explains the research behind the practices she teaches, and then she tells you how to apply it to your own life. Her teachings actually get you results.

Sandy Sayers, executive coaching clientOver the last year, I worked with Katherine as my executive coach to accomplish my goals. Through our work, I learned a lot about myself, my strengths, and my weaknesses. What an eye-opener! We talked honestly and openly about my leadership skills and how to build my confidence and ability to trust myself.

Katherine is so skilled. She’s open, welcoming and supportive. It’s not easy to talk about our weaknesses or recognize our strengths. Leaders can be very hard on themselves. I learned to relax and trust my ideas!
