Discover a step-by-step framework that will teach you how to lead with confidence and compassion so that you can build strong relationships with your team, mobilize them to do great work, and infuse your own role with more fulfillment, purpose, and balance.

You're a leader delivering technology solutions, and you've got a tremendous amount on your plate.

Your to-do list is endless...
... and you're working way too many hours trying to get everything done.

You're always on the go putting out fire after fire...
... and there's never time to catch up, take a breath, and strategize a more efficient way to work.

And while your workload is overwhelming...
... what really stresses you out is leading and keeping your talented team.

Because it's one thing to do your own work...
... and a completely different thing to guide, manage, and inspire others and get them all working productively together.

It's that arena of leadership where you feel like a fish out of water.

 You’re unsure of how to build relationships with the members on your team…... and there are times you need to have difficult conversations and don’t know what to say.

You understand the vision that you need to mobilize your team around...
... but it's hard to communicate that vision with them and get them engaged to define the strategy to accomplish it.

This feeling of disconnection may be made all the harder if you're working across cultures...
... and have already found it challenging to navigate the complexity of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.

You know the key to your success - both in your role and with your company overall - is to develop your team into one connected, valued, and truly happy unit...
... and with out the framework and the guidance to teach you exactly how to do it, you're left struggling on your own, while feeling unsure, overworked, stressed, and alone.

Hear this: you're not alone

Knowing how to create a happy, collaborative, and valued team is a challenge for MANY leaders...
... especially technology leaders who are typically solely motivated by checking off tasks and completing projects.

They have plenty of training and experience in the "technical skills" they need to do their jobs well...
... but pretty much ZERO training in the "hard skills" and "soft skills" that are essential for effective leadership.

Those skills include:

  • Aligning people around a shared purpose

  • Developing win-win relationships towards reaching shared goals

  • Delegating effectively to develop others

  • Showing - and sharing - gratitude and appreciation

  • Developing a deeper sense of self-awareness

  • Having transformational conversations

  • Managing overwhelm and stress

  • Leading with empathy and compassion

  • Developing self-confidence to overcome imposter syndrome

Trying to manage a team without a strong grasp of these skills not only makes leadership difficult and ineffective...
... but it makes your work life in general extremely taxing.

Because instead of creating a team which is a valued and energized unit that works cohesively... feels like YOU are the sole person burdened with the responsibility.

That approach takes a HUGE toll on you as a leader...
...and it also negatively impacts your personal life.

You might be physically, mentally, or emotionally absent from your family and friends...
... and have no work-life balance to enjoy out-of-work activities that further enrich your life's journey.

So, you want to develop and continually increase these essential "hard skills" and "soft skills"...
...for you to finally feel CONFIDENT that you know how to lead and grow a happy team and YOU, in turn, to build upon that confidence to feel much happier too!

The good news is...

... the framework you need to learn these skills and increase your confidence and happiness as a leader is HERE.

It's a framework that will help you to:

  • Create a shared purpose for your team and the projects at hand

  • Learn how to grow partnerships and foster relationships with your team members and stakeholders

  • Discover your leadership style and how to be a happy leader of a happy team

  • Increase your awareness of your skills and strengths and those of your team

  • Grow in “mental fitness” to manage your stress, ease burnout, and become energized again

  • Activate deeper conversations and provide effective feedback

Overall, it’s a framework that will help you start THRIVING as a leader, add massive value to your team and your company, and produce work from yourself and your team that is high-quality, efficient, and results-driven.

I know it may seem hard to imagine making such a huge shift, especially if you’re really struggling in your leadership role right now… …but not only is it possible, it’s 100% doable.

And I know this to be true because I’ve experienced it myself, and helped many tech leaders like you do the same.

I’ve experienced firsthand the difference a leader can make in promoting healthy or toxic cultures, and it’s important to me that all leaders — including YOU — learn to become the best versions of themselves, at work and at home. I started my career as a developer at a software consulting company in South Africa, and in my early 20s, I emigrated with my family to Canada and then the United States, where I worked for six years at a global software and consulting organization.

In 1995, I joined Capital Group, a privately held investment management organization based in Los Angeles. I worked there for 16 years until 2011, when I decided to make another big move and relocate to New York City where I worked as an independent senior consultant at Morgan Stanley and decided to get my coaching credentials. I’m now based in the Pacific Northwest running my own successful coaching business.

For over 20 years, I have delivered technology solutions in the corporate environment while managing, mentoring, and coaching individuals to develop their leadership, interpersonal, and technical skills. I’ve worked with executives in both business and technology to develop and implement strategic business technology roadmaps, and my accomplishments at Capital Group include establishing a Program Management Office and a Technology Business Office. I was also part of the cross-functional working group for a global IT-wide Transformation Program. 

There were also portions of my career where I had to deliver positive and constructive feedback to my team members, and wished that I had the tools and courage to provide constructive feedback to those above me. I felt that I needed to simply “suck it up” when reporting to someone who did not seem as open. I wish I felt more empowered at the time.

In new roles, I didn’t always feel I had an equal seat at the table. My inferiority complex made me “play small” at times, and I wish I had the confidence to speak up in all meetings, not just some.

It’s these types of experiences that have made me so passionate about helping tech leaders grow their leadership skills and their confidence.

Now, I want you to have the tools and the ability to overcome the overwhelm and extreme stress that can be so common among tech leaders so that you can instead assess how to spend your time more strategically and valuably on what’s important, create a cohesive team you can rely on, and feel more in control of your work and personal life.

If you're ready to make this critical shift, I can't wait to show you how.
