In today’s business climate, emerging leaders, CEO’s and senior leaders are expected to be constantly evolving, adding new leadership competencies, polishing their communication skills, and keeping current on the latest tools for effectively leading their teams. I help executives evaluate their strengths and set goals for improvement, devise an action plan, and develop new interpersonal skills to manage and motivate their teams.

When is it time for a coach?
Good communication skills are extremely rare, even though leadership is nothing but communication, whether you’re persuading your own workforce, selling a product or raising funds, it all about your communications.
Communication is the key to an efficient and productive workplace. Every workplace involves getting people to do things, and that takes communication. If that communication is inefficient or inaccurate, or worse, disruptive or offensive, then work suffers, productivity suffers, and the environment suffers… which means work quality suffers and retention suffers, and culture suffers…. which means efficiency suffers and productivity suffers, and environment suffers… which means… you get the picture.
“Geoffrey is a Sherpa — he provides a process and structure for a journey of self-discovery. His passion for helping others is palpable, inspirational and energizing. Geoffrey’s quiet presence, calm strength and deep wisdom provide a safe backdrop to explore grow and lead.” Amy Moen CSMP Principal HOK
From improving people’s communication style, to identifying the style of their colleagues, to taking responsibility for how, when and what we communicate – communication is a combination of skills and art. Both the art and skills get addressed in working with a communication coach.
My coaching is structured and practical. It’s designed to help you create powerful and permanent change that’s effective and sustainable. It works because it enables you make clear decisions and take confident action that’s aligned with your strengths, your values, your purpose and passion, Geoffrey
