In 2005, I founded Pumped, Inc., a brand development and digital marketing consultancy focused on helping small businesses and entrepreneurs build and grow their brands. Over the past seventeen years, I worked with over 100+ startups, entrepreneurs, and businesses across 45 industries and eventually grew the consultancy into a six-figure company. I also started Pumped For Change, Inc., a 501c(3) non-profit focused on raising funds and awareness for charities, causes, and organizations.
Over those years, I learned valuable lessons and skills on employee motivation, emotional intelligence, operations, cash flow, leadership development, productivity, sales, new business development, client retention, and even the area of burnout, to name a few. After successfully growing my business, I felt a calling to help other leaders in organizational, executive, and entrepreneurial leadership roles. My focus is on helping these leaders get out of their rut, take their business to the next level, improve their leadership skills, increase productivity, and elevate their capacity to lead.
As a formally trained Leadership & Business Coach with PCCI (an ICF-approved and accredited institution), I have well over 100+ hours of coaching leaders overcome and succeed. My specialty is working with leaders to help them define their core values, vision, purpose, & mission to align them for success. My Executive, Leadership and Career Coaching program helps leaders increase productivity and maximize their capacity to lead successfully in their professional and personal lives. The ultimate goal is for leaders like you to make a positive, lasting impact in the world.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, corporate executive, or an experienced professional, coaching will help you get to the next level. Over the years, I’ve witnessed countless lives and organizations transformed through the power of coaching. It may seem like pseudo-science or a “touchy-feely” approach to leadership development for those unfamiliar with coaching. However, I can tell you with 100% confidence (and backed by scientific studies) that this idea is a misconception and shortsighted view of coaching. For most, coaching is a term most commonly associated with sports. However, in recent years, professional coaching is being redefined as an approach to helping others in various professional and personal aspects of life. The ICF (International Coaching Federation), defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.”
In essence, coaching is a partnership between coach and client whereby the coach helps the client achieve their personal best and produce the results they want in their personal and professional lives.
Many leaders have the technical training, knowledge, and resources necessary to accomplish their job yet cannot make the significant advancements they need or want in their workspace. When this occurs, more training or replacing others is often not the answer. These leaders need something much more personal: coaching. As a trained and certified Leadership and Business Coach, and entrepreneur for the past 20 years myself, I guide leaders and business owners to achieve successful results.
Individual Executive, Leadership and Career Coaching is the most productive as it’s on-to-one, in-depth, wholistic, and focused to your specific goals to ensure transformative results for the individual and those they lead. We work together to help you develop your goals and objectives with the appropriate guidance necessary for successful results. Some of the areas we focus on include spiritual development, emotional intelligence, imposter syndrome, a heightened self-awareness, excellent critical thinking skills, accelerated learning abilities, and improved interpersonal skills.
This individual coach approach aims to apply and provide your renewed leadership skills to improve not only yourself but those around you. All coaching sessions are structured to provide guidance aimed at ensuring that your progress is consistent and transformative. All coaching sessions are client-focused and specific to your individual need and goals. The first step is to conduct a personal audit and initial session to establish goals and expectations. Afterward, we work together to progress toward your expected destination. All coaching sessions are dynamic, and for this reason, my goal is to guide and hold you accountable to the goals you set. I walk with you every step of the way.
The executive coaching program focuses on helping entrepreneurs and c-suite leaders tap into the hidden potential of their talents, skills, and resources to uncover ways they can exponentially grow and lead their companies and team toward tremendous success. Entrepreneurs and Startups are especially in need of executive coaching as they require a directional compass of where to go and a plan on how to get there. For more established companies, most company HR directors, Boards, or CEOs hire me to help their executives as they require a unique coaching approach due to their positions. Below are a few sample topics that most executives focus on:
Leadership coaching focuses on making positive progress of leaders in leadership roles that directly impact the company or organization and those they lead. Unlike executive coaching, leadership coaching helps mid-level, middle managers or front-line staff improve their effectiveness and overcome their specific challenges arising within the current work environment. The approach toward leadership coaching provides leaders with individual attention, support, and feedback to help them make continuous improvements and adjustments through consistent feedback. Our leadership coaching program helps high potential leaders achieve better business and team results while preparing for future executive roles through:
Career coaching helps those professionals desiring to find greater fulfillment in their careers. I currently coach professionals with a minimum of four years into their jobs as they are at a pivotal point in their careers. These professionals seek clarity about their future professional goals and need help creating a plan and overcoming obstacles that may be in the way. I also help coach those feeling they’re stuck in a dead-end job with no meaning or purpose, while others find the demands of balancing their work lives with their personal lives challenging. Career coaching helps people with all of these concerns and more. Below are a few sample topics that most executives focus on:
