Melissa ties her broad business experience -- both in the board room and on the front lines -- with her deep background in mindfulness to help her clients with a variety of key questions: 

Leadership Coaching

How do I consciously take me and my team to the next level?  

When you are a leader, you don’t always have thought partners who can help you hash through issues objectively or that are going to hold you accountable for the 'easy to say but hard to do' things that make the difference in being an authentic leader.  And it’s through mindful leadership coaching that you create space to see things from a new perspective, understand situations more richly to make better decisions, and create an accountability system to get done what you say you’re going to do. 

With Melissa, you'll work together to get clear about what you need to do to get to the next level, articulate a vision of where you want to be, and the develop a clear plan of action to get there.  


Career Coaching

How can I intentionally build the career that I want?  
How can I be more fulfilled by my career, and still find balance?  

The two fundamental questions Melissa works with you on are: What am I about?  And how do I make sure that what I do is aligned with my life’s purpose? 

When you have clear answers to these questions, doubts and obstacles grow smaller and smaller.  And in their place, grows the clarity and conviction to 'lean in' to your vision.  Together with Melissa you'll chart a path forward, and move boldly towards making this vision a reality.  

Who Does Melissa work with?

Melissa works with leaders who are ready to step up their game to the next level.  They're hungry to not just lead, but do it in a way that's fully aligned with the truth of who they are.    


How does it work?

Underlying all of this work, Melissa uses the core tools of mindfulness.  Mindfulness is the foundation of emotional intelligence, and emotional intelligence is the foundation of authentic leadership.  

Through tools like the three point check in — which invites you to articulate what’s going on at the three most important parts of your being: your mind, emotions and gut — Melissa works with you to get clearer about what’s going on.  And if these three dimensions are out of alignment, we work on bringing them back into alignment so that you can be your most effortlessly productive and powerful self.  Because when you’re authentically in your own power, other people notice.  And when people notice, that’s when your career and team move into hyperdrive.  


What's the process?

Melissa works with clients over the phone in two 45 minute sessions per month.  All coaching engagements start with a discovery session where with Melissa you'll work on articulating your values and crafting / honing a life purpose statement.  Like the North Star, once those two elements are in place, all subsequent coaching sessions are aligned around achieving the goals that stem from moving towards that larger vision.  

At the end of each session, together with Melissa you'll decide what your plan of action is.  And together, you'll be a team of two relentlessly driving towards what's most important to you.
