The Leadership Algorithm®
Are you a manager, team leader or project lead?
Do you have a technical background (STEM) - engineering, technology, science, programming, accounting, mathematics...?
Are you discouraged with your career progress?
You're great at technical work. You've taken on more complex responsibilities. Yet, you got passed over for a position.
You feel frustrated because you thought that taking on more of what you already do was preparing you for the next rung on the ladder.
You're at the technical-strategic decision point - you can continue on a technical trajectory or jump to the strategic leadership career progression.
However, the skills that got you here aren't enough to accelerate your career!
The strategic skills you really need for the next level of leadership are the seldom taught or discussed.
You need to enhance these strategic leadership skills to inject life into your stalled career.
You have to take action to propel your career from a technical trajectory onto the strategic leadership ladder!
You've decided to accelerate your career by taking a more strategic role.
You've already mastered the technical aspects of your discipline, but how do you acquire the leadership skills for your next step?
You could take training courses, but you have to wait until they are scheduled and this could easily cost you thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours.
The Leadership Algorithm®'s coaching is tailored for your needs. RIGHT NOW!
You and I meet via technology which fits easily into your busy schedule. And without any associated travel time and costs!
You acquire the skills you need AT THIS MOMENT and apply them immediately.
Does this sound like the solution you need?
As an engineer, you need someone who speaks your language and gets to the point. You need a coach with a technical background, certification in a proven coaching methodology and a track record with leaders, like you.
You also need a coach that can bring in additional approaches. I balance both side of the brain: left (logical, scientific, objective) and right (creative, holistic, subjective) to ensure you've covered all the bases.
If you want a faster, tailored approach to "upping" your capabilities, you're in the right place!
Technical leaders hire me to help them develop the exact strategic skills they need to get a seat at C-level discussions.
You won't learn this by getting an MBA - I should know, I have one!
I love coaching engineers to catapult their careers into higher leadership levels.
I fell into coaching engineers.
I worked in HR at an energy company and most of my clients were engineers, geoscientists, accountants & IT professionals.
I started coaching technical leaders naturally when we met and really enjoyed it. And I am good at it!
All of the pieces of my career fit together to make a great coach for technical leaders:
With my MBA and experience working inside and consulting with organizations, I understand how business runs.
My Bachelor of Mathematics (including 4 years of Differential Equations!) means I think logically and communicate clearly.
Because of my many certifications including Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching™, The Systems Thinking Approach® and our Strategic Management Approach® to Planning and Change, along with my extensive training and expertise in Strategic and Systems Thinking, planning and implementation, I give you the exact tools you need to catapult your career.
I don't rely solely on technical thinking, I balance that with right-brained concepts like thinking of the whole system, leading during chaos and finding creative solutions.
Since 2002, I have successfully coached engineers, accountants & other technical professionals to sky rocket their careers to Vice President and CEO levels... and I am the leadership coach to help you!
Set coaching goals so you have a clear picture of the kind of leader you are working towards.
Create measurement instrument to show you are making progress.
Assess your current strengths and opportunities for improvement so we know what areas to leverage and which ones to augment.
While analytical thinking is taught at many higher institutions, strategic thinking is rarely discussed. However, strategic thinking is required as problems and situations become more complex.
You'll learn The Systems Thinking Approach©. This equips you to be strategic at all levels of the organization: see both the big picture and the details, be more creative in problem solving, and assess the impact on other departments, teams and projects.
Even though more emphasis is on communication, many people continue to struggle to get their ideas across. Every leader can be a better communicator, even if you are a good one now!
You'll understand and apply The Systems Thinking Approach© to Communication so that your ideas are understood and the listener takes the appropriate action as a result - ensuring individual and team goals are met.
