Transition

You know you’re a high performer, and so does your company. That’s why you were promoted to the stretch assignment. You also know how difficult it is to transition from the skills that promoted you to what you will need to excel now. Nothing has prepared you for this. You need a safe place to battle the inner voice that breeds self-doubt. You need support to help you step up. You need a “pacing partner” to run this new race with you.

Grow

You’re seasoned, you know your stuff and you’ve done well.  You also know you need to polish a few leadership areas to elevate your game.  A sounding board would provide honest feedback about areas that might be holding you back.  Someone to lend perspective and stretch you to be better positioned for a bigger role.

If you’ve been playing in the same space for too long and believe you’re ready to paint on a larger canvas, it’s time to take inventory of how best to leverage your strengths.  What is the ideal next step in your career journey?  How will you get there?  What is your plan, what resources do you need, and what’s stopping you?

Whether you want to transition, grow, advance, or all three, do any of these issues resonate with you?

  • Struggling to navigate politics and feeling isolated
  • Having confidence/impostor issues in a new role
  • Preparing for hi-stakes meetings with new senior levels
  • “Doing” instead of delegating
  • Shifting from previous role to the new one

Client Success Stories

  • “Here’s what I know to be true regardless of the “hat” she’s wearing: [Toni is] kind, direct and generous. She has an uncanny ability to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of the matter – so you can see your own vision more clearly. And, she’s the perfect combination of strategic, practical and tactical. I am unabashedly biased, because I know whether you hire her as a consultant or coach, it’ll be the best darn money you’ll spend.”

I felt like Toni gave me the real-deal in a way that was productive and that influenced my interactions with teammates in a positive way….she never minced words and constantly asked questions to challenge my thinking…..the tactics that I’ve learned have driven [me] to more decisions and action steps than prior to my coaching engagement.
