My Signature Talk:

The Leader Within

Conscious Leadership Strategies to Help Leaders Thrive

Today's leaders face unique challenges getting divided teams to work well together, attracting reliable staff, and addressing toxic behaviors while shouldering increasing demands on your time, higher expectations, and fewer resources.  It's no wonder burnout is so prevalent!

The Answer Is Aligned Leadership... A conscious approach to leadership where leaders are intentional about their actions, decisions and interactions to create positive outcomes for themselves, their teams and organizations.  Aligned leaders are self-aware, mindful and purpose driven.  They prioritize healthy teams, sustainable fulfillment and positive impact.  Aligned leaders show up authentically and connect with their teams on a deeper level.  

But this doesn't just happen when you reach a certain level of success.  This takes personal and professional growth.  It's the inner work.

In my signature talk, I share my story of burnout at the height of a successful executive career.   Most days it felt like I was just going through the motions.  I still had big professional goals, but I was too stuck to see how to make it all work.  So for three years I journeyed down the rabbit hole of personal growth and healing.  I hired coaches. I took classes. I meditated with gurus and studied with spiritual teachers. 


What I learned changed the way I think about leadership.  It's not enough to show up.  We have to show up as the best version of ourselves.  Not just for our teams and organizations, but for ourselves too. 


This is Aligned Leadership.
