Leading a team is an exciting responsibility, and it can be overwhelming, too! You were promoted because you were good at your job, now you need to lead others to do the same. But how? The best leaders are self-aware, emotionally intelligent, and authentic. Through coaching, we will work to build your self-awareness so that you can lead others in a way that is true to you.
When you are leader, you are charged with getting work done through others. It all starts with you. Investing in yourself is the best way for you to help your team perform. Others are counting on you, and you need to be clear on who you are, know what others need from you, and understand what you need to develop in to be the best leader possible. Here are some ways I can help.
Be Clear on Who You Are
You know you’re good at your job from a technical perspective, that’s why you got promoted! Now that you’re in a leadership role, or an elevated leadership role, you will need to develop or sharpen your leadership skills. A great place to start is with building Self-Awareness. There are several ways you can do this, all of which can help you to Envision how you want to be as a leader.
Know What Others Need From You
Yes, you need to invest in yourself and be clear on who you are, but as a leader, you are very much in the business of serving others. You need to understand your team and what they need from you. I can help you with that in a few ways.

Understand What you Need to Develop
As you begin your new leadership role, in our coaching conversations, you will realize and share what areas you want to grow in. This is where the Build and Act part of the Envisioneering Up Process comes in. This is different for each person. Perhaps you want to work on listening, or negotiating, presenting to a group, teambuilding, managing a challenging employee, or even all of the above! Together, we can identify, prioritize, and work on the areas important to you.
