Stephanie coached me during my transition to a VP role. She was instrumental in helping me develop tools, techniques, and processes for my transition into a full-fledged organizational leader. She was very insightful in her approach which included observing me interacting with my team and providing feedback. Stephanie delivers the information and advice you need at exactly the right times based on her deep introspective discussions and path-finding techniques.

Stephanie helped me through various areas: (a) Become a trusted coach and a collaborative peer; move from me to we (b) Become an effective leader for my directs with trusted delegation and safety framework (c) Build a vision for the team and group that will be the north star (d) Executive presence in high stake meetings (e) Letting go and sponsoring more collaboration than forcing outcomes. The results were phenomenal and getting promoted to VP was in large part due to the coaching and style changes that Stephanie helped in.
