Leadership Coaching

As a leader, success relies on your ability to get results and effectively deal with challenging situations and people.

We help you develop more effective leadership skills and behaviors. Together we clarify your goals and aspirations, and identify and assess the leadership issues and obstacles you’re facing.

We believe that how you think leads to the choices you make and actions you take. Therefore, we help you reflect on your current decision making patterns and their underlying beliefs, and their impact on your leadership / team / organizations performance. Bringing conscious attention to the intended and unintended consequences of your choices and actions enables you to create the results you want.

Generally, emotionally triggering situations and decisions are the most challenging for leaders. You may revert to ineffective habitual behavior that doesn’t achieve the results you want. We help you identify any limiting assumptions, beliefs, and behaviors that get in your way; and develop behaviors that enable you to interact and lead skillfully, even in difficult situations.

With over thirty-five years in the field, we’re highly experienced in coaching leaders. We offer you a fresh objective, perspective and nonjudgmental feedback. Our practical and proven approach enables you to resolve the core issues so you can sustain long term change.

What Clients Say

“If you are completely open to change and ready to be fully engaged in the process of identifying and clarifying your goals; unlocking your purpose; overcoming particularly difficult obstacles; and, undertaking the hard work of achieving your goals, I suggest you consider Dale as your Executive Coach. She uses her considerable facilitative coaching skills and toolkit; her background as an art therapist; and her warmth, compassion and humility to assist you along YOUR path. In my experience in working with her, Dale seemingly always has just the right word or imagery to help unlock the most difficult obstacles. The results that I have been able to generate in working with Dale are outstanding and I urge you to consider contacting her to see if her background and skills are right for the work before you. I knew coaching would be important, but I didn't realize the huge positive impact it would have on both my personal and work life.“ – Tony Reardon, President, National Tax Employee Union, Washington, DC
