One-on-One Management Coaching

Ready to make a real difference? Personalized leadership development isn’t reserved for the C-Suite. Managers at all levels deserve the investment and support of a coach.

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to keep up with your work while learning how to be a good manager “on the job?” Are you not even sure how to begin to develop your team much less your own leadership abilities?

Wouldn’t it feel empowering to stop trying to “do it all” and start creating a clear, strategic leadership plan and have the confidence and knowledge to execute it?

Together, we will make that shift...

Working with me in my one-on-one management coaching program is the most powerful way to gain the clarity and confidence you need to become a great leader who makes a true difference in the lives of your team, today and tomorrow.

Kellie struggled to bust through her mindset blocks, but now she knows just how to harness her unique strengths and lead her team with intention.

“Alex is thoughtful, measured, and wonderful at probing to get to the heart of the issue. She asked helpful questions that allowed me to uncover some of my own barriers, then provided valuable guidance and frameworks on how to address them. I learned about my strengths and challenges as a leader, helpful tools for giving better feedback, and some really valuable ways to make the most of my time and stick to a schedule that works for me.”

Why should you invest in management coaching?

communication

You’ll learn to bridge the communication gap.

Do you avoid tough conversations in the workplace? A lot of people do. A lack of straightforward communication leads people to make assumptions and gossip, disrupts workflows and can create a negative team culture.

support

You’ll get unbiased, personalized support.

Take advantage of new knowledge you will learn and put it right into practice within your team. I will hold you accountable as you begin to translate your intentions into action.

satisfaction

You’ll boost team engagement and satisfaction.

Managers account for 70% of the variance in employee engagement, but only 38% of employees report being engaged. Investing in manager development is an investment in your entire team.

Marisa went from feeling unprepared for check-in’s with her first employee to knowing exactly what to say and how to communicate effectively.

“Alex was incredibly helpful in helping me prepare for my first ever round of employee check-in meetings. Alex began by learning what my goals were for these meetings, then helped me tailor agendas accordingly. She helped me think through the questions I wanted to ask them and how to word feedback so that it would be constructive and well-received. As a first time manager, these types of conversations are new to me, so Alex’s insight was truly invaluable for keeping spirits high with my employee and ending on a positive note with my intern.”

- Marisa, Founder of The Neon Tea Party
