Leadership development

We cannot change what we are not aware of,
and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.
— Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook and founder of Leanin.org

Anyone can learn how to be a more effective leader. And it takes a wise leader to seek improvement. How you lead directly impacts those with whom you work, from your executive team, to managers and specialists. It’s a heavy burden, but can be a light chore, if you’re honest about your personal challenges and are committed to focused change. Leslie can be your partner in leadership growth and success, through:


Leadership & Vision Alignment

Without a clearly articulated vision, teams are left playing a guessing game. Once leaders can define their vision and translate that vision to their team, you have gold. Leslie can help with the definition process and help create alignment between leaders and their teams, leading to clear expectations, commitments and deliverables that fulfill business imperatives. 


Executive Coaching

Do you have a defined set of challenges you are facing? Or are you just burning to grow? Leslie can develop a customized plan to work with you on a regular basis to address and remedy the issues. 


Management Coaching

Managing people is tough and rewarding work. Whether you are a new manager, experiencing some challenges or promoting some talented team members, all managers can be better equipped with the tools they need to excel. Leslie can offer training for new and veteran managers, tailoring the experience for your specific need. 



Interpersonal Dynamics/Skills Development

The most aligned, productive and energetic work environments value their team members’ intellectual and emotional capital equally – and that messaging comes from the top. The higher a person climbs in an organization, work becomes more about relationships – I’m talking about some serious people skills. Do you have what it takes? Leslie can help team members build their interpersonal work skills, for the betterment of the entire team.

Leslie helped me learn about myself and discover ways of approaching my career and my colleagues that I never would have identified on my own; I was able to cleanly and clearly articulate my vision and this altered the course of my career.
