My clients experience what it is like to spread their wings and fly. Leadership is challenging, especially for women in the male-dominated industries I often work in. Finding the right balance between strength and compassion can feel like walking a tightrope. It is possible for women to be recognized as accomplished leaders, seen as having executive presence and capable of leading the organization. Sometimes, it takes some convincing for women to see their own leadership strengths. I help women leaders unfold their leadership wings so that they reach higher in their careers with confidence.
