ABOUT

Evolving Leaders helps our clients focus on practical goals: leading strategically, managing individual and organizational change, understanding themselves and their impact on others, building high-performing teams, demonstrating executive presence, and leading more balanced and satisfying lives.

In reality, a natural-born leader is a rarity. Much more common — and arguably more effective — is a leader who has been challenged, has learned, and continues to refine and apply that learning. The role of an executive coach is to help leaders recognize that reality and leverage it to the individual's and organization's benefit.

Our Philosophy

  • 25 years of experience

  • Hundreds of successful engagements across a diverse client base

  • MBA and hands-on managerial experience

  • Tuned-in view of the realities of organization development

Why work with us?

"Leaders who focus on who they are and not just what they do are the most successful at leading others, managing change and achieving results. I've had the privilege of working with many leaders who have been willing to embark on their journey of self-discovery. It takes courage, commitment and resolve. I'm humbled to be an impetus for real and lasting change in their personal and professional lives."
