Leadership Development & Coaching

We are available to offer advice, strategies, new perspectives, and resources to leaders that are interested in either further developing their skills or who are facing specific challenges. Pulling from a variety of resources and personal experience, we help leaders examine existing behaviors, build improved self-awareness, and set new goals. This includes assessing individual preferences, leadership styles and strengths, and communication styles using instruments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Strength Deployment Indicator, and the Emotional Intelligence Indicator.
