1. Growth strategy/innovation
I demonstrate this is my leadership by teaching those I coach "to fish". Meaning, help them understand where they are lacking, and then mentor them into hands-on experience as they grow skills and confidence. Alongside this, I lend perspective and stories from my own experience.
I have personally been part of successes (and a few failures) as a founder/entrepreneur, in running a startup, in small companies, mid-size on up to Fortune 500. I have worked/consulted in over 12 B2C, B2B and tech industries. I pour that experience into coaching/advising. Those I coach really spark to the experience, and I can now count numerous success stories among those I have coached (thriving businesses and also balanced/happy lives).
Extensive. In my own coaching practice and also working in an incubator, I have coached an estimated 30+ entrepreneurs.
After a highly successful business career, (numerous businesses grown, strong leadership track record), I have spent the past 3.5 years coaching and advising entrepreneurs, founders, executives and teams. I absolutely love the work and have seen great results coaching 1:1, in groups, in incubators, in workshop settings. I also moonlighted as an adjunct professor (MBA, undergrad) at the university level for 17 years. I have coaching, advising, mentoring and teaching in my blood.
