What my clients are saying…
The experience working with you has been truly life changing. I have developed closer relationships with my team members, and we have become more collaborative in our efforts.
I have learned how to prioritize my time. I used to get caught up in the spider web of emails and responding to them would typically consume my entire day. I now set aside blocks of time for my personal growth and development, as well as time to accomplish items I feel are not only urgent but are particularly important to me and the organization. I no longer get overwhelmed and distracted. I am more capable and composed at handling what comes at me.

From our first session through to our last, Tony and his team challenged me to examine everything about my leadership mindset, to understand the underlying foundation of my decision making, and to expand my definition of leadership.
My leadership evolved dramatically. Tony’s inquisitive, insightful one-on-one conversations helped me embrace a new mindset, freeing me to delegate more, build more empowering relationships, and be more authentic with my team.

My coaching experience with Tony was transformative. Our sessions were enlightening, serving to develop a growth mindset and help me see new possibilities. This inner work we did together has helped inform me in everything that I do, from self-management, to time management, to prioritization and strategy. Tony gave of himself working with me on the outcomes I wanted to create, drawing on his broad personal, professional, and leadership experience.

Working with Tony has been critical to my growth and development as a leader.
As a woman, I have found that I was taught that I needed to squelch my emotions in order to become an effective leader. Tony challenged that thinking, allowing me to embrace my emotions, to use them effectively, wisely, and confidently. Through working with him, I have grown professionally and as a person. My confidence, and self-acceptance has improved significantly. Today, I am a more effective leader!

My Business Leadership Coaching Model
There are a set of leadership competencies that can transform how you lead yourself and how effectively you are at leading others. Knowing what those leadership competencies are, assessing where you stand, and then determining a developmental agenda for your leadership training is critical. Otherwise, how do you know where to begin? You may be asking yourself,
- Where do we need to prioritize business leadership development?
- What do we need to focus on to position ourselves for success in key business areas?
- Where do we need to be creating awareness, grounding, and vision to overcome barriers?
- How can we describe “current state” as a baseline and let that inform or compare to our aspiration?
- Are there dynamics we should investigate further along demographic lines?
Let’s start by assessing where your leadership team stands, by looking at the following personal and professional competency areas. Three Relational and three Task. How would you and your senior leaders measure yourself and your team?
- Relating to others = to bring out the best in others.
- Interpersonal Intelligence = to listen, engage in conflict and controversy, to be with the feelings of others, and to manage one’s own feelings.
- Authenticity = integrity – to be trusted to walk your talk & courage – willing to bring up the “undiscussables” and openly deal with difficult issues and relationship problems.
- Productivity = to maintain or enhance human/technical resources to sustain long-term high performance.
- Achievement = goal directed with a track record of goal achievement and high performance.
- Purposeful & Visionary = to clearly communicate and model commitment to purpose and vision.
So, how well are you leading yourself, others, change, and/or your organization? How do you know?

Sam and Joanne are both leaders in their respective companies. Both are decisive go-getters who thrive in stress-filled environments, and each wants to further build upon their leadership skills. How they go about that is significantly different. Sam presents his goals to his team with confidence. He is direct and works to motivate his employees.…
Bob walks into your office. His face is red, and his posture is rigid. You invite him to take a seat, finishing up a phone call while your mind races ahead. Is this about the fact that he didn’t get the promotion? Or is he having issues, again, with Sue on the new project? Dread…
