Our areas of expertise are in leadership development, female leadership, communication, emotional intelligence, mindset, personal branding, and career transition. On an organizational level, we focus on 360 degree feedback processes, team alignment and cultural change.
Both Positive and Conversational Intelligence are at the core of our work. While leaders’ knowledge of their field and their leadership skills determine their potential, it is their positive intelligence and mindfulness that enables them to live up to that potential. This process requires a deeper level of self-examination to invoke a growth mindset and an authentically optimistic and solution-oriented approach. We also focus on the processes and principles embedded in Conversational Intelligence, which are essential to developing deep long-lasting relationships and building high performing teams based on trust and respect.
Appointments take place in-person, through video-conferencing or by phone. The duration of each engagement is determined by the scope of work. Based upon the topic, sometimes a few meetings are all that is needed. In the majority of cases, 10-12 meetings are recommended to achieve significant progress in a broader area. We also work with clients on a long term basis, serving as a consistent sounding board throughout their career.
