I am an Executive Coach focusing on career navigation/reinvention and leadership development. I am also a speaker, writer and teacher on these topics. I look forward to working with you, or if you are doing research on behalf of your company, I look forward to working with your organization’s leaders and staff.
I typically work with people who are:
At a cross-roads in their careers and need support in identifying how to best move forward;
Looking to boost their career management skills, build momentum in their careers and get to the next level; or
Are currently key leaders in their organizations and looking to perform to their greatest abilities.
My clients have included everyone from analysts to CEOs, CTOs and CFOs.
I’m confident that I can help to achieve your ambitions because:
I’ve been in your shoes - or those of your staff - as an individual contributor and a leader in companies large and small. I understand your interests and challenges and your environment because I’ve been there.
I’ve had a pretty good career of my own. Prior to starting my Executive Coaching practice, I was a Senior Director at Google where I managed several hundred staff and contractors. In that role, I received Google’s “Great Manager Award”, an award given to less than 1% of all managers. Prior to Google, I held leadership roles at a range of different companies including Visa and various start-ups. I graduated from U.C. Berkeley with a BA in Economics and an MBA.
I’ve coached many people in many stages of their careers in my role as a manager, as a volunteer in Google’s internal coaching program, and as an Executive Coach with my own practice.
I’ve received extensive training on topics ranging from career development, performance management, influencing, and navigating change.
I also enjoy teaching and speaking on career management and leadership development. Indeed, I recently taught a course on career navigation and reinvention for Stanford University’s Continuing Studies program titled “Google Leaders on Managing Your Career”.
I am open, friendly, and easy to talk to and I really do want to help. I coach via phone, via video conference and in person. My clients are located all over the globe - from California to New York to Germany to Australia to Pakistan.
