Describe your coaching style.

My coaching style typically depends on the context and client, but I tend to use a combination of mindful, developmental, transformational, and visionary coaching.

Who is your ideal client and why?

My ideal clients are emerging executive leaders across health sciences who are transitioning from technical/functional roles to leadership roles. Leaders whose organizations are struggling with low employee engagement and high turnover. By working on leadership development that builds on emotional intelligence competencies, leaders are more likely to succeed in inspiring and empowering their employees.

How do you measure success with a client?

I measure success by clearly defining the client's goal and how they would know that they have achieved that goal at the beginning of the coaching engagement, makes it easier to measure success with the engagement.

What is your coaching superpower?

My coaching superpower is being empathetic and using active listening
