Transformational Leadership Coaching

Transformational Leaders Needed

The word “transformation” gets thrown around a lot. I wondered about using it on this website. But… you can’t deny the growing gap between what used to work and tomorrow. These gaps get created by new technologies, and information gaps generated by mountains of data. There are even gaps in how we live compared to a life of well being.

Perfecting and fine tuning stuff isn’t the way forward.

Status quo thinking can’t bridge these gaps.

We need to build bridges between the past and future.

I help leaders become bridge builders. 

The people piece of transforming an organization is the hardest part. There’s no shortage of new ideas. Implementing them on top of everyday priorities creates rough going, though.  Folks are constantly wrangling the unexpected. They probably find it hard to let go of what isn’t working. This is where you may inadvertently let them down. Even leaders who are clear about what needs to change and why fall short…if they don’t model a new HOW.

Do you have time to investigate innovative leadership practices? Trying to emulate celebrity CEOs you read about in trade publications is a pipe dream when you compare it to your everyday reality.

Ready to try something unexpected? Hire an executive coach who curates innovative systems thinking. Miriam Webster describes contrary as “not being in conformity with what is usual or expected”. I rely on my contrary streak for curiosity, persistence and creativity. How about you?

Are you ready to build your bridge into the future? Would you like help from a fellow builder? Could you use a neutral and confidential sounding board?

  • “Gwen helped me identify an internal voice holding me back. The coaching was so successful in reconnecting me with the part of me that believes I can do anything that I quit my job at the peak of the worst recession in American history. What happened next is nothing short of phenomenal. I collaborated with friends to change the law through a public referendum to allow the manufacture of liquor in a dry Tennessee county. I helped launch one of America’s newest distilleries and became Chief Operating Officer.”

  • “After struggling through my first year as a Global Vice President of Sales at a rapidly growing software company, I was referred to Gwen. She quickly helped me assess how I could adapt my leadership style to make my organization more scalable while still hitting our short term revenue goals.  This allowed us to grow more rapidly and had a huge impact on both my department’s culture and performance.”
