Transforming Your Leadership Skills to Accelerate Your Career
If you’re a professional business woman, business owner, or executive, your career and the performance of your team depends on your ability to lead.
Yet the skills that are required to be an effective leader aren’t the ones you are taught in school, leaving you to wonder if you’ve got it right while struggling through the day-to-day tasks of leading.
As a woman, being a leader can present even more challenges, with issues of different communication styles, authority, respect and setting appropriate boundaries that can delay your success and results.
As a whole, women tend to face more stereotypes in the business world that can make leadership even more difficult. Women struggle to stand out in male dominated fields and get stuck in what feels like a boys’ club. They keep working harder instead of smarter and some have hit the infamous glass ceiling.

Initially, I had the goal that the coaching would help me keep on track in planning steps for a major project: to move the City’s Aging in Place strategic initiative forward. The coaching helped me to brainstorm various steps and be careful of my choices in setting out a broad collaboration without slowing the progress. Little did I know at the time what would come to light working with Tina.
Tina helped me identify that I was having emotional reactions that were misplaced. We talked through those emotions that would have blocked progress on my work. With her encouragement, I had a unique, safe way in which to process emotional reactions, keep those out of my daily interpersonal communications and have cleaner workplace dynamics. This prevented me from making mistakes, or when I did, to correct those errors promptly.
I pour myself into the work – and I found that work fulfilling. But that decision caused an impact on myself and my family. I knew that I could not perceive the degree of stress outside of my usual habits. Stress was there: With the coaching, I now see this with a different lens. I was not having time for my other interests, connecting to the arts and for relaxing. I realized it was time to retire.

The coaching meetings with Tina created a safe space to think this huge career change through, which gave me confidence in my decision to roll out the closure as well as support the Aging in Place initiative. I used our coaching calls to stay forward-looking and excited. We developed the motto “let go, celebrate, sail forward.” It worked!
So many improvements in my leadership approach occurred, including: strategic planning, collaboration, more effective communication, I became more organized, efficient and with more life balance and my wellness improved.
On a scale of 1- 10, I’d give Tina a 20! I was constantly amazed to have Tina’s validation about coping in the workplace, her knowledge of toxic environments and could laugh about it, but also, bring a wider perspective to how workplaces can be.
Tina keeps the highest standard of confidentiality. Our conversations were safe and constructive and she brought a great deal of perspective due to her vast experience working in organizations.
