Are you one of the many leaders who are challenged by the increasing demand for you to get involved in and handle “people problems.” Many of you are Ph.D. and or MD scientists and engineers who are experts in their area of science and technology. Some of you are technical experts in IT or Finance or other disciplines where having the most depth of knowledge and often the “right” answer has helped you to develop your reputation and credibility.
Most of you are expected to lead organizations or teams, develop relationships, and influence stakeholders who are outside of your technical specialty. Frequently, you have an inclination and a comfort level with “getting the task done” – often by yourselves, or without engaging diverse stakeholders in a collaborative way.
On top of these demands, our environment today is increasingly complex, ambiguous and volatile; full of moving parts and a multitude of conflicting agendas. With more work on our plates than we know what do to with, we are stimulated to react quickly, and take action. Often what is needed, however, is the confidence and presence to pause, step back, regain our balance, and choose a more thoughtful approach. I believe that developing this capacity to be open, present, and connected in the midst of this turbulence is the critical capacity for leadership effectiveness.
I can help you build competency in the following critical areas.
Communication and relational skills
Self-awareness and capacity to self-reflect
Stress and work/life balance
Collaboration and conflict resolution
