I've been an HR professional for over 20 years, having worked in a variety of industries and companies facing rapid changes. I’ve helped leaders of people develop as part of my HR work in all of my roles. Managers of people in each organization I’ve worked for faced similar challenges around their development as leaders ranging from needing simple tactics for smooth interpersonal interactions to resolving long-standing conflict between departments run by separate people.
Over my career I’ve learned that people can change their perspective by changing their behaviors. Even small, seemingly inconsequential behaviors add up into who you are as a leader; conscientiously changing these behaviors positively changes outcomes, leading to development, progress, and personal growth.
I’m building on my real-life acquired coaching skills through formal coaching training designed to integrate International Coaching Federation Core Competencies and Ethics into my coaching practice. I’m on the path of pursuing certification by that organization and believe that coaching with these formal guidelines in place is poised to grow exponentially through its potentially immense impact on how people lead and change the world.
