Times have changed.

In the age of “Me Too” and other social justice movements, it is critical for corporations to be flexible and adapt quickly. You can no longer afford to ignore how your actions impact others – within your organization and beyond.

It is not enough to take responsibility solely for results and tasks. You must also take responsibility for your emotions and behaviors and those of your employees. You are as accountable for the impact of your behavior as you are for business results.

It’s time to shift unconscious patterns and foster Aware Leadership within your organization. Let’s focus our attention on a practical and relevant question that produces results:

What behaviors, processes or structures create a sense of belonging and connection that is vital to getting work done?

Behavioral coaching is especially valuable in times of growth, turmoil or turnover . . .

  • Growth – leaders are asked to balance their priorities as they simultaneously develop company-wide operational infrastructure and enhance their leadership skills

  • Turmoil - leaders are asked to intervene when disfunctional behaviors damage team productivity and corporate reputation in addition to achieving their business goals

  • Turnover – leaders are asked to clarify, strengthen and embody corporate culture and values as they also are held accountable for strategic and operational objectives
