Coaching Philosophy

Patricia believes that each leader and team has both obvious and hidden strengths. Once dialed in effectively, these strengths greatly uplevel their positive impact on their stakeholders. A leader or team’s strengths also prove that a vision they co-create through coaching is possible to achieve and show the leader or team how it can be achieved. Strengths are also applied to shoring up important weaknesses or blind spots, increasing emotional intelligence, and seizing opportunities that present themselves in the fast-changing business landscape.

Patricia encourages breakthroughs in awareness through powerful questions, observations, trust, and through the degree of challenge that is most effective for the client.

Results Achieved

A senior team at a manufacturing company had poor relationships; unresolved conflicts and ineffective meetings, which caused morale to bottom out. After CEO and team coaching sessions over 4 months, and team assessments with feedback, the team re-aligned and re-engaged around their common purpose, vision, strengths, and agreed upon communication, decision-making, conflict and change management norms; trust increased among team members and morale increased.
