Thought Leadership

The Strategic Leap: Transforming from Operational to Visionary Leadership

As you step into leadership, one of the biggest challenges you'll face is shifting from being a hands-on "get things done" type of leader to becoming a strategic thinker.

Hire Your Fractional Executive

In a year’s time, with the training, mentoring and coaching of Carol, I increased my income 30%.  I gained awareness of blockers to my success and was able to increase my salary again from her support and encouragement.  

Because of you, I’m walking away understanding that my boss views me as a leader; he hired me and he’s paying me to be a leader.  I need to approach him as a leader.  So that’s my take away….It’s OK to be a leader.
