Executive coaching for personal and team development

Expand your emotional intelligence and build a stronger, more effective team through The Connection Mindset™.

Are you ready to reduce your stress and streamline your entire organization by leading an effective, inspired team?

Let me paint the picture for you…

Imagine being able to walk into work each day with newfound clarity and confidence. You know where your company is headed and have a roadmap for  how to get there.

Your team delivers powerful results each week, acting with synchronicity so that you’re not left feeling burnt out and over-stretched.

Your company’s culture is focused on gaining success through connection – connection to each other and to the company’s larger purpose. 

Your team members feel inspired by your leadership. They support one another’s goals and know how to tap into each other’s  ‘zone of genius’ with ease (making your job a hell of a lot easier in the process).

They’re not just there to collect a paycheck – they feel like they’re part of a family.

Sounds like quite a dream, right?

But right now, you’re completely stumped on how you can make this vision a reality. You’re doing the best you can, but you still feel like something is missing.

The reality is, you’re far too close to the problem to see any solutions. You’re too close to your company, your job, and your own brain to see these gaps in your leadership potential, let alone know how to fill them.

That’s where we come in.

In a nutshell, we take your organization…

Scott’s coaching had a fundamental and transformative impact on how I view my professional career in the context of my overall life and the type of leader I want to become.

Leading with authenticity is the key to unlocking your greatest potential - both for yourself AND your team - no matter what your company looks like.

Leading with authenticity naturally creates trust, engagement, and connection between you and your team. It also reduces friction and prevents misunderstandings, as you and your team learn to express yourselves clearly & honestly.

Authenticity is what comes naturally once you get out of your own way. It’s the shortest path to emotional intelligence, and the fastest way to gain the respect and admiration of your colleagues.

But most of all, acting with authenticity gives you the ability to handle situations with empathy, while connecting to people’s deepest need to feel seen & heard. 

That’s the core of what we focus on during our time together.

The Connection Mindset™ is what enables you to truly emerge as an Authentic Leader.

In fact, it’s so important that we’ve based our entire framework around it.

The Connection Mindset™ is NOT prescriptive. No two leaders are alike. So rather than telling you what to do and how to be, The Connection Mindset connects you to your individual strengths, values, and authentic leadership style. 

It’s ‘one size fits one’ — not ‘one size fits all.’

The Connection Mindset places more emphasis on emotional intelligence and managing people from the heart instead of just from the head. Leading through logic and reason can come across transactional and impersonal, but directing team members from the heart gives them a greater sense of responsibility and commitment. 

What better way to increase the productivity and effectiveness of your team?

The Connection Mindset™ framework gives you:

1. Self awareness: Connect with your core self to develop self-awareness and self-discipline

2. Emotional resilience: Connect with your emotions to gain the resilience needed to respond (rather than react) to people and situations in the moment

3. Better decision-making: Connect with your decisions to actively choose mindsets and beliefs that will lead to better outcomes (and better overall quality of life)

4. More effective action: Connect with your actions to build the skills, habits, and interpersonal re-calibration that lead to authentic leadership. This fully enables you to create lasting change for yourself and your organization.

The Authentic Leadership Program is designed to maximize your investment...

You and your senior team develop the perspectives & skills to transform the organization through top-down leadership, rather than spending thousands of dollars on training solutions for individual team members that don’t deliver sustainable change.

People consistently struggle to implement much of what they learn in management training.

Connection Mindset™ equips leaders with self-awareness and emotional intelligence that helps them implement more of what they learn in your existing management training, assessments, or 360-degree feedback programs.

One last personal note from Scott:

It breaks my heart when clients come to me saying they feel like they can’t be themselves at work. They have specific beliefs surrounding what it means to be a professional, an executive, or a leader.

They’re convinced that there isn’t room for emotion in business, or that vulnerability is a weaknesses. They have told themselves time and time again that it’s not okay to be their silly, playful, awkward selves. 

In fact, that used to be me. After way too many years spent trying to be the way I thought I was supposed to be, I realized I was only wearing a mask – a mask that got in the way of my success and took a tremendous toll on me. 

But my clients, though they’re from all different industries, have one thing in common. They’ve found time and again that not only is it okay to be their whole, authentic selves, but it’s actually critical to sustaining their mental health and overall continued success.

That’s not to say it’s easy. 

There will be plenty of times when things go sideways.

What I can tell you is this: On those days when it’s hard, or a client’s experienced a big disappointment, I often ask them, “Would you go back to doing things the way you did before we started working together? Do you really want to put that mask back on?” 

Not once has anyone said yes to that question. 

I can’t remember anyone even hesitating.

Just like Judy Garland said, “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

If you’re ready to become that first-rate version of yourself, then book a call so we can dive right in. 

I’ll be waiting!
