Imagine a world where new leaders could sign up for their own coach – a private one-on-one coach who could provide a bit of personalized training AND discuss their own specific new-manager situations.  Using the leadership wisdom available in the general marketplace, standing on the shoulders of the ‘greats’, enhanced by weekly discussions with a coach, imagine how these managers could learn and practice, and get feedback in a weekly, flexible way.  

Rather than getting frustrated with trial and error in the workplace, rather than just avoiding the manager-staff interaction, rather than risking your own future credibility as a leader, you can now engage your own private coach.  Even in ‘secret’ – in the privacy of video sessions after work.  Over the course of 5-10-15 weeks, you can begin to gain skills, confidence, and successful interactions with your new team.  No one need know HOW it happened. 

What emerges is a new you…. a charismatic, engaging, empathetic, visionary leader with a highly effective team.  You can then begin your climb to being an even greater leader with a full collection of tools in your toolbox and success from the start.  You become even more valuable to the company, to your team members (each on their own growth path), and to your own own career.
