Executive Leadership Development Coaching
Individual, customized coaching program
Leadership Training has Failed You!
“According to the American Society of Training and Development, U.S. businesses spent more than $170 Billion dollars on leadership-based curriculum, with the majority of those dollars being spent on ‘Leadership Training.’ Here’s the thing — when it comes to leadership, the training industry has been broken for years. You don’t train leaders you develop them — a subtle yet important distinction lost on many. Leadership training is alive and well, but it should have died long, long ago.” Mike Myatt, Forbes article “The # 1 Reason Leadership Development Fails”
You are responsible for an overwhelming list of tasks: learning how to adapt to changing priorities, fix broken systems, revise goals, and manage disgruntled team members. Like most leaders, you looked for training opportunities to master core skills and then attempted to apply them to that long list of tasks. How’d that work out for you? Were you able recall and apply the 3-step process for conflict resolution in the midst of a team melt-down? Have you seen progress in your ability to think outside the box or move past your comfort zone since you attended that EQ class?
I know you want to be the kind of leader who grows personally and professionally — and applies that learning in a way you’re more effective and successful. You’ve put a significant amount of time, effort, energy, and finances into books, seminars, training programs, etc. and you’re frustrated at yourself for being stuck. I’m going to let you in on the secret: STOP TRAINING — START DEVELOPING!

“After spending over a decade struggling with chronic illness and disease, I discovered true healing when I chose to overhaul my lifestyle, and as a result, gained tremendous passion for helping others claim the same results. Due to this passion, as well as my expertise in the field of holistic health, I believed I possessed everything required to launch a thriving business. However, upon launching, I quickly came to realize that growing a successful practice calls for more than just expertise and passion—it calls for tremendous confidence, self-understanding, belief, and persistence. I attribute my choice to work with Judy as the decision which saved my now thriving practice. Judy helped me lay the sturdy foundation I now rely on each and every day as I continue to turn my business dreams into a reality. Overall, coaching with Judy made sense because I knew I needed to trust in myself and what I offer first before asking others to trust my lead. Judy helped me achieve this by challenging me to think deeply about how I view myself, my innate qualities, character, and skills, and by teaching me how to use my uniqueness to grow a practice which flows naturally, playing to my personal strengths and story. Judy also helped me work through a list of action steps needed to move me from a place of wishing to run a profitable business to actually running one. Thank you, Judy!”Sarah Morford, www.cultivateholisticliving.com
“Working as a supervisor for a nonprofit agency is rewarding and overwhelming. The social workers I supervise and programs offered directly impact the community. I often feel stuck in the middle between what my staff needs to be effective and the overall agency goals as developed by management. Implementing change is slow. Employee morale declines and I find it hard to balance everything and everyone both at work and at home. I needed help broadening my perspective because I tend to focus on the small details and lose sight of the big picture. Coaching with Judy was extremely helpful. Her skillful questions helped me widen my view of my role and responsibilities so I didn’t feel so burdened.”Brandy Brown
