    Be The Leader You Know You Can Be

  • I work with professionals who are new to Leadership and struggling to find their comfort zone.

     

    I help you be the confident leader you really want to be.

  • Leadership is Learnable!

    Where are you in your leadership journey?

    Does any of the following describe you?

    • Are you a new leader struggling to figure out your own leadership style?
    • Do you notice others who seem to have this leadership “thing” figured out, but for you it just seems like this winding road with multiple surprises around every corner?
    • Do you have a strong desire to be an effective and confident leader that people respond to, but don’t know where to start?
    • Have you been on the receiving end of less than great leadership and want to make sure you avoid those pitfalls, but aren’t sure how to go about it?
    • Do you fear that in order to be an effective leader, you have to stop being you?

    If any of these resonates with you, I’ve got some good news: you’re in the right place!​

      Is this where you’d rather be?

      • Moving through your day confident about how you are showing up as a leader
      • Recognizing your own strengths so that you utilize them in a powerful way
      • Knowing and managing your non-strength areas
      • Understanding and integrating the building blocks of effective leadership
      • Mastering effective mindsets and habits that will serve both you and those you serve as a leader
      • Receiving support from someone who’s been there and done that
      • Fully stepping into your own confident leadership style that you will continue to grow over your lifetime

      Schedule Your Free Confident Leader Consultation

      I invite you to schedule a one-hour private consultation with me over the phone. During this confidential conversation, you will:

      • Create a sense of clarity about the kind of leader you really want to be
      • Determine the #1 thing stopping you from showing up consistently in this way
      • Identify the most important actions that will move you toward stepping into the kind of leadership that really works for you
      • Complete the consultation knowing what to do next to be the leader you know you are wanting to be
    • Coaching with Alan

      I guide my clients through a program I’ve developed based on years of observing what works and what doesn’t to create and sustain effective people-centered leadership. Some of the topics you will learn about and integrate:

      • Being clear on the kind of leader you choose to be and how to know when you’re on course
      • Creating strong relationships with team members (hint: you must care about the people who work for you)
      • Communicating effectively with your team, your peers and those you report to
      • Avoiding the all-too-common pitfalls that can trip you up as a leader

      Confident Leadership

      A 90-day foundation program

      Are you a professional who has recently been asked to step into a leadership role, yet you are somewhat (or very!) new to the notion of you as a leader? Do you have a deep desire to be an effective leader, but aren’t sure where to begin or who to ask?

       

      Or perhaps you’ve been leading for a while now, but more by the “seat of your pants” than anything else, and you’d welcome some structure and support for more fully stepping into your own confident leadership. You know you’re ready to really step up and into a version of leadership that you feel really good about.

      Why I care about leadership....

      Over the course of over 2 decades, I’ve had the privilege of working in and leading teams of talented people in such areas as 1:1 coaching, customer support, product documentation, end-user software training, product management and data conversion, and have played significant roles at both managerial and director levels. I’ve worked for banks, mortgage banks, and a variety of software companies, as well as for a coaching organization, providing 1:1 coaching and leading the delivery of their flagship coaching program for entrepreneurs.

       

      These experiences have allowed me to witness firsthand both good and terrible leadership and I’ve seen the incredibly positive impact that effective leadership can have, and the hugely negative impact that poor leadership often brings. I’ve been astonished to watch as previously high performing and loyal star players turned into minimally productive resentful clock-watchers, due not so much to WHAT was happening, but HOW it was happening and HOW they perceived they were being treated; i.e., the victims of poor leadership.

      As a result, I’ve developed a structured way of thinking about what constitutes effective leadership, and I feel strongly called to share it. While I definitely do not subscribe to a “one size fits all” model, I do take a stand that certain elements need to be present in order for leaders to be effective and to actually enjoy the process. And the good news is that these elements are learnable.

       

      Today, I’m excited to be able to work directly with people-oriented leaders—especially newer ones—who are yearning to bring their own brand of confident leadership to whatever organization (of whatever size) they are choosing to make a contribution to.

       

      And a bit more about me in case you’re interested…in addition to my direct experiences mentioned above, I also bring undergraduate and graduate degrees in business management, as well as a coaching certification from the Co-Active Training Institute (formerly the Coaches Training Institute). I’ve been coaching full time since 2004 and love what I do.

       

      Which brings us to you. What kind of a leader are you wanting to be?

      My Crucible Leadership Moment....

      It was the early 1990’s and I was happily working away minding my own business at a job that I really enjoyed. I didn’t think much about leadership and didn’t have to, since no one reported to me and I had an excellent professional and personal relationship with my boss. Part of my enjoyment of my work environment was that the organization had around 200 people, so it was big enough to feel like you were part of something substantial, yet small enough that you could feel as if you knew most everyone and were connected to them.

       

      Then, what I came to call The Troubles began...>>READ ENTIRE POST >>
