According to research by McKinsey, up to half of new-leaders fail within two years. The fact is that if you want to excel in a new job, you can’t rely on your company’s onboarding process to prepare you. You need to take control of the process.

I help new leaders onboard in new roles increasing their chances of success. Who doesn’t want that?

Learn how to:

  • Create alignment with the key stakeholders.
  • Identify quick wins.
  • Develop cultural competence.
  • Set goals for your first year and get management buy-in.

Career Transition

I help executives and mid-career professionals navigate a path from where they are to where they want to go. Standing out is imperative to creating an impact in an impatient job market— to that end, I work with clients to identify their audience and communicate their brand so others understand their professional vision and the value they bring.

Learn how to:

  • Set a powerful direction for your career.
  • Create a framework for purposeful action to achieve your goals.
  • Develop habits, tools, and processes to create forward momentum.
  • Own your brand and communicate it confidently. 
  • Interview confidently and convincingly.
