Allow me to be your secret weapon.
Why? While career coaching is a $2 billion dollar industry, and I’ve written that you likely can’t swing a hashtag.
without hitting a career coach. The market is saturated. So why am I throwing my hat in the ring? I have done it all, and I want to share what I’ve learned with growing professionals. I’ve run businesses—scaled my first one to 7-figure sales in less than 5 years, starting with only two pay checks in the bank. I made officer in a global firm before the age of 30, and led among the ranks of officers in two of the most respected global agencies. I’ve supported major brands and counseled executives on how to meet business goals. I’ve even led and started an award-winning practice as an executive within a highly matrixed corporate environment at a Fortune 10. For most of my career, I’ve held the title VP/SVP/CEO and advised the C-Suite as a trusted, knowledgeable source on business, marketing and corporate communications. But I didn’t do it alone. Some of the most elite executive coaches, mentors and sponsors have poured into me.
So, now it is time for me to pour into others.
I also know what it takes to become and remain marketable inside and outside of your company in a digital economy. With a solid background and agility with digital and social media, I know what it takes to amplify your brand online tastefully with strong content. With a deep marketing and communications background, I also know how to refine your brand offline so that it shines online.
I’m also an experienced and recognized communications trainer. That includes media training, but most importantly, it means interpersonal communications and presentation training. If you cannot communicate, your days as a leader are numbered, or at least limited. My job is to get your audience to lean in when you speak, whether it is in a boardroom or on a platform. My job is also to help you own every room you enter, and even some of which you may never see the inside.
I understand politics in small or large organizations. I even understand the cultures created in various industries. I’ll help you strategize ways to engage in those environments, bring value quickly and often and establish a solid reputation for innovation, creativity and excellence.
I am a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and certified by the CaPP Institute, an accredited program of the ICF. My Associates Certified Coach (ACC) accreditation is expected February 2020. My training is grounded in tenants of applied positive psychology, and leverages insights from industry-tested and proven assessments to inform our guided plans for improvement. I’m also officially endorsed by two respected organizations. I have served as an official business coach for Black Enterprise FWD, formerly the BE Entrepreneur Summit and is a member of the prestigious faculty of LEAD360, an organization that addresses the full-circle needs of the Fortune 500 executive through development, enrichment and networking.
What’s more? I hold a special place in my heart for women and other underrepresented groups in business and in corporate. I’ve developed an approach to business and career for these entrepreneurs and other professionals that is proven, because it is not only time-tested by some of the best in business, but I’ve lived it and watched it work over the past 26 years.
The key is own your career, your brand, your journey. It is a liberating mindset. More specifically, it is an entrepreneurial mindset. It allows you to move with confidence, be your best self unapologetically, and when things happen, you have choices because you created them.
