There are numerous courses and workshops about leadership today that produce intellectual knowledge. Leadership is so much more. It's about the heart, the spirit and the emotional nature of the leader that makes it come alive. The authentic connection to people is the vital link. It produces the inspiration for engagement, alignment and performance.
People know when a leader is real. The leader's inner resources; physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual are aligned or in harmony with each other to communicate the same message. If they don't align, people feel the inner conflict and sense there's a hidden agenda, triggering a seed of distrust. Distrust leads to fear and protectiveness and disengagement ensues. The impact disengagement has on innovation, creativity, productivity and profitability in organizations is staggering.
Most leaders start their journey with acquired skills such as marketing, finance or professional expertise. Few are aware of their innate gifts and talents, unique offerings to others, or how they make a difference in the world around them.
The first step on the path to leadership mastery is personal mastery. Fostering the development and understanding of your own authenticity, inner identity, mission, vision, purpose and values is critical to self-awareness and authentic self-expression. By expanding your use of these inner resources and innate power, you develop a deep trusting relationship with yourself and make decisions based on your own truth.
The deep, connected relationship with yourself creates a platform to connect authentically to others, the vital link in authentic leadership. Your authentic self-expression will create value and inspire others to follow with passion and energy.
The leadership path is a continual journey of learning and growth. This path will help you become a leader who will build an organization, team or group based on trust, confidence, vision and purpose.

We understand what it is like to be in the heat of fire as leaders, be responsible for those who are following us and have to perform and make decisions in tough times and situations. We have built and led high-performing teams, as well as being team members ourselves. We have practical experience as leaders and pursue continuous education, growth and development.
We believe in experiential learning in addition to intellectual knowledge. As a result, we ask our coaching clients to observe themselves and practice their learning on the job and apply it in different venues. This establishes new habit patterns and ways of being, enabling our clients to move forward on their Leader Journey with passion, energy and performance creating successful results.
We provide team, individual and group coaching, teaching and speaking. We also present short educational sessions and half or full day workshops that could be combined with a business meeting. We customize based on your needs.
"Joan worked as a coach-consultant to me and my team of four Vice Presidents for a year, meeting with us monthly. We worked in areas like strengths, building trust among ourselves and with our followers, and recognizing and employing a broader range of situation-appropriate leadership styles. Joan is an excellent coach! Even among a group of "seasoned" senior leaders, she engendered a remarkable amount of growth and development. Joan is a pleasure to work with. I sincerely recommend her."
