I coach decision makers.

You are:

A Leader Who Manages Managers

You’re brilliant but you’ve hit your limit.
You used to know what to do and now you’re confused.
You feel like you are spinning.
You have a new team.

Your organization is experiencing rapid growth.

Or your organization is experiencing radical change.

Things aren’t going as smoothly as they used to.

Your team isn’t improving and you’re increasingly frustrated.
You have performance issues within your team or organization and you can’t see your way through them.

What you’ve done before isn’t working.
You’re working hard, too hard really, and see less and less impact on the organization, and more and more impact on your life.
You’re exhausted and (which is unlike you) feeling a bit lost.
You are ready to take your hands off the wheel and ask for help.

 

I coach leaders through this moment of STRETCH

 

I know what to do to help you.

You need two things: a process and a practice to address your current challenges.

You need to see yourself in this moment in a way you haven’t before and I will show you how.

If you want the organization you lead to grow, expand, and improve, then you have to do the same.

But that doesn’t mean MORE work.

It means more simplicity.

I’ll show you how to achieve that.

 

When we work together you’ll achieve:

Improved team performance.

A sustainable, repeatable organizational structure for performance AND success.

Radical self-care.

Clear decision making and implementation.

Hope, joy, relief, and confidence.

A working vision for what it means to relentlessly pursue the work and THE LIFE you love.

 

I’ve coached hundreds of leaders using my formula.

Your challenges are all solvable.

I promise.

But it’s time to engage a new voice, a new partner, who can offer you insights and practices that will match the current challenges you’re facing.

Everyone needs a place to go to objectively and safely work through their thoughts, worry, confusion and even fear.

To stretch your organization to the next level, YOU have to implement new personal and team practices.

I only work with leaders who are equally eager to lead their organization and themselves through this stretch moment.

Executive Coaching Client Testimonials

After over 20 years in corporate sales leadership and management roles, I found Kris at a time when I felt “lost” as a leader.  Working with Kris helped me reconnect with my passion for leading teams and developing others, while also coaching me in navigating some fairly challenging political terrain.
I recommend Kris for anyone who wants “on the field” support in developing strategy for tackling difficult specific interpersonal and team situations. She helps me to develop the plan and remains available for support as the situation progresses.  We always follow up on the outcome and discuss what needs to happen next.
I now take a step back and consider how “I want to show up” with the outcome I want to achieve in executive management interactions.  Before, I lacked ownership and confidence going into the conversation, and I would often appear defensive when things took a different path than I had hoped.  This approach gives me tremendous confidence going into a difficult or uncomfortable situation and improves my ability to redirect the conversation and/or my position as appropriate.
Working with Kris has helped me significantly improve my professional impact.
My partnership with Kris has been incredibly valuable as I plan the next chapter of my career.  She gathers information through all of our conversations to build a strong understanding of what’s important to me, where I excel, and where I struggle. As I consider all of the amazing possibilities open to me, she helps me to “test” those choices against my strengths, values and goals as I’ve outlined.   With her as a “thinking partner”, I am so much more confident in taking that next big step!
Vice President of Sales, Consumer Packaged Goods

I’ve learned about myself that I am a great consumer of knowledge but APPLYING it is where I struggled. By working in partnership with Kris, I identified where I needed the most accountability and began putting into place all the concepts I knew I should be implementing but just wasn’t.

I now have tough conversations that actually help improve my team when I used to put them off before working with Kris.

I now have very clear expectations for myself and my team which makes management so much easier and predictable.

I’d recommend Kris as a coach to other leaders who want to take action to exceed the goals that you have set for yourself and your team.

If you want to ideas that are truly actionable tomorrow in your position, you should work with Kris. After each call/session, I would make a plan that I could implement the next day.

Michelle Arant, Ed,D. , Chief Academic Officer and Chief Operations Officer, Savant Learning Systems

Working with Kris has helped me get out of my emotions when dealing with management / leadership issues and instead get to practical solutions.  She has taught me so much, but most especially how to set up employees for success (KPI) and keep myself accountable (performance is not an opinion).  She has been invaluable in navigating personality conflicts across my very broad team of over 700, and in personally coaching me on how to best interact with my boss and decision makers.  I have learned to evaluate my thinking about situations that I tend to label, and people I may tend to label.  She has been a great support in holding space for me to have emotions (fear, anger, hurt) and then determine an action plan from a place of maturity and perspective.

I now give much better expectations counseling, one-on-one meetings, and performance counseling to my subordinates after working with Kris.

I’d recommend Kris as a coach to other leaders who want to improve their organizational performance, personal leadership behaviors, and mature emotionally as a leader.  If you want to up level yourself, and your team, you absolutely should work with Kris!  You will learn, have fun, and bring it!
