Leaders need support, too.
For 13 years, I worked in middle management at a Fortune 50 company. Each day I was met with the challenge of maintaining a pulse on both the humanness of my employees, and the trajectory of the work before us. I held the vision, and the space for my people to execute that vision - and I learned something critical in that time:
Business is not a balance between business and people - it’s a constant investment in the care for your people. End of story. Because without your people, no matter how much “business” you have, you’ve got nothing.
In order to be a great leader, to be able to get people excited on board every day, in order to navigate challenge and execute strategy with ease and efficiency….the leader needs space to be lead. To learn how to release control, to work through their own hiccups, stress, anxiety, and clarity.
And that’s where I come in.
The pillars of sustainable success start with you.
We are in a time where the bottom line matters more than ever. Margins are tighter. The turnaround time quicker. And everyday a new project presents itself. You and your people rise to the occasion the best you can, but perhaps you’re feeling the strain. Turnover rates in your team are getting higher. You and your people talk about fatigue and stress more than you do joy and excitement…You do your best to acknowledge and honor individuals for their contributions and commitments, but at the same time, they’re just not giving what you need. It’s a tough line to toe…
And let’s face it - you like what you do, but something’s gotta give.
The struggle to find the middle ground between accepting your people as people and running a business doesn’t require, “how are we gonna solve global warming?” level stress and struggle….all it requires is your honest commitment to showing up as the best, balanced version of YOU everyday, so you can hold that space for the best versions of your people.
Rolling out successful company programs can coexist simultaneously with the space for each individual’s voice to be heard, needs met, and emotional wellbeing taken care of.
If you and/or your leaders are ready to:
Foster more harmonius teamwork
Lead more productive meetings
Laugh together more than you sigh and vent
Create outstanding customer service experiences

Having worked in middle management of a Fortune 50 company for 13 years, I understand the personal and professional challenges that come along with running a team. As I toed the line between needing to support the business and my people, and navigated an ever changing environment with competing priorities, I learned how to problem solve. I learned how to build cohesive teams. And I learned how to do it with minimal stress. I also learned that it’s possible to do all of this….and still have a thriving personal life with the time and space to invest in what brings you the most joy.
