Executive and leadership coaching is for nonprofit leaders who are ready to take their leadership to the next level; who know they can go bigger and bolder and just need a little help to get them there; who feel stuck; or who know they would benefit from the support of an objective third party.
Executive and Leadership Coaching
In executive coaching, you receive support to:
- Create a clear, inspiring vision
- Advance your organization
- Unleash the potential of your teams
- Better manage your time and energy
- Be more confident
- Build a supportive, empowering culture
- Find joy and meaning in your work
Coaching is 100% confidential and 100% personalized to each client's needs. Coaching is different from consulting, therapy and counseling. As a coach, Julie works with clients where they are today and supports them in all aspects of their lives to shine as the leaders they are. She works through a combination of powerful questions, visualizations, perspective work, and other tools to support the client in achieving his or her goals.
Julie's coach training is through the Coaches Training Institute.
