Getting Out of the Weeds

Sarah was a senior leader at a $10 billion global firm. Recognized for her brilliance, and “take no prisoners” approach, she was not succeeding; she alienated the groups she most needed to influence. Through coaching Sarah learned how to hold back long enough to give space to others, to listen and learn from them.

Always one to take charge and “do it myself,” she is now “out of the weeds,” and her team is stepping up to the challenges. She has cemented relationships with her peers and key stakeholders whose help she needs. As a result, her team has surpassed their financial goals by 10%.

What happened in the coaching?
Through a special, intimate process, the coach conducted a deep dive, confidential assessment with Sarah’s colleagues, bosses and peers, and extracted key themes which would be most useful to her. She let her see her blind spots in a way she could accept and motivated her to change. For the first time, Sarah could see clearly why she was not succeeding, and exactly what she needed to do to get what she wanted.

Sarah is on course to be promoted to Vice President. Just as important, “My job used to be so stressful …now I am actually having fun!”
