“Call it the Icarus Syndrome: A once high-flying leader finds they can’t get a break – at least not until their board hands them an enforced break, by way of a firing or a sabbatical. How can it be that so many previously stellar leader suddenly can’t deliver the goods? Is it the rest of the world (or the rest of their organization) that is suddenly out of step?” Check out this article by Les McKeown with 3 warning signs that every leader should see.
Have you ever scored an ‘own goal’ in your business?
You see it in soccer, hockey, and football. A player gets turned around and mistakenly scores for the other team! How embarrassing.
And yes, they happen in business too. We’ve all been there. The worst part is, it happens even to the best of us. A mistaken strategy, a misjudged decision, or a botched execution. That’s your “own goal” in business.
What if there was a way to minimize or eliminate most of those “own goals?”
On January 17, I’ll be hosting a LinkedIn Live Webinar, sharing 4 Keys to Prevent Own Goals. I’d love to have you join me! Here’s the link to register for this free event.
As we enter 2024 and look ahead, many leaders are feeling overwhelmed. How can we ensure that 2024 will be different – and better – than 2023? How can you get out of your own way and take steps to become the leader that your team and your company need you to be? It’s not just going to happen. It takes intentionality. And that’s where coaching comes in.
As an Executive Coach specializing in Mindset and Leadership, I work with entrepreneurs, founders, executives, and C-suite leaders who want to become catalytic in their leadership. Through 1:1 coaching, my clients move from where they are stuck to where they want to be.
For January, I currently have 2 slots for new clients. I don’t accept every person who approaches me about coaching; in fact, I turn down those who I believe are not ready or a good fit for what I do. If you’d like to explore whether Executive Coaching is your next step toward the impact you want to make, let’s talk. No hard sales pitch. If it’s not right for both of us, I’ll tell you so. My goal is to help leaders get out of their own way, stop breaking their own businesses and teams, and move into being catalytic in their impact and their legacy. If you’re ready, book a time for us to talk.
