Management Coaching


Managing people is one of the most challenging aspects of the job. Sometimes, it can be beneficial to collaborate on your management issues and opportunities with an objective and experienced expert. I support many clients as their management coach to help them creatively and effectively problem-solve their management challenges.

What is management coaching useful for?

Management coaching is utilizing an experienced professional to support you in better understanding and developing practical solutions to management challenges. These challenges often pertain to team dynamics, effectiveness and efficiency, personnel issues, organizational concerns, politics, accountability, governance, situational challenges, team building, misalignment, performance, board and leadership dynamics, communication, collaboration, and other management challenges.

What is a management coaching session like?

Typically, clients sign up for an hour or two of coaching, which you can do below. Then, clients send over any background material that helps with context. We then have a video meeting to discuss the situation and begin collaboratively problem-solving, diagnosing the issues, and developing practical solutions. I’ll ask questions and work with you to clearly understand the issues and opportunities and create compelling solutions, strategies, and next steps. Strategy coaching sessions spark creative thinking, out-of-the-box solutions, and clarity. Clients enjoy the interaction, learn a lot, and appreciate the collaboration with an objective, non-biased expert. Here is more on working with a business coach.
