Leadership and Executive Coaching Blog


This leadership and executive coaching blog is simple. My clients want to be running on full, and avoid running on empty.

I suspect you do to.

When I find something worthy of a moment of your deeper reflection, I'll pass it along.

Signs of Burnout at Work

I often work with executives, leaders and professionals who feel on the edge of being burned out. We take a quick inventory of five signs of burnout at work.

A loss of energy - The energy you had just isn't there. Emotional, physical, spiritual etc

A loss of involvement - Pulling back from relationship and being with people.

A loss of effectiveness - Not on top of your game like you once was.

A loss of health and a sense of well-being - Unexplainable aches and pains, not feeling at your best overall.

A loss of a sense of control - You're not the one in charge of the levers to make things happen, but are being held responsible to make it happen. It's frustrating and discouraging.

Read the entire page to gain perspective on this. And don't hesitate to connect if you want to have an Executive Coach who understands.

Create a Personal Leadership Development Plan

I have developed this resource to work in conjunction with the 52 Solutions 5 Days of Coaching.

If you would like a simple assessment to help you determine what to concentrate on as part of your personal leadership development plan, check this out.

Each of the 52 practices (habits/skills) have an explanation, a self-assessment for making progress, and five "days" of self-coaching to provide practical action steps you can take to improve in this area.

Your "five days" may actually take longer depending on how long you wish to take working on turning the practice into a habit. I've simply used the "days" format for simplicity.

Healthcare Executive Coaching

I've been reflecting this morning on the resilience required, and shown, by my clients in healthcare.

The Covid pandemic was an excruciating time in so many ways. Yet, these men and women led their teams with compassion, candor, and perseverance through it all.

It happened that I had a number of healthcare executives as clients during this time. Their daily stories and the things they were thinking through were often tough and complicated.

As I try to convey on the page I created, I feel so grateful that I could provide support by way of professional coaching for all that they were dealing with.

Many were Christian healthcare executives. We always concluded our time together in brief prayer. It was a time for drawing on divine help and strength. I'm convinced I saw it lived out before me week after week as we coached together.
