√ What do you want?
√ What do you need?
LJ Coaching provides support in developing and clarifying your personal primary purpose and boundaries. It's an enlightening endeavor!
Join other courageous leaders in creating results where the output really is greater than the sum of its parts.
New Position: Execute the First 3 Days Flawlessly
Most newbies will never know how much time they could save if they strategically planned their First 72 Hours. Establishing your identity for a new position begins immediately. One tiny misstep, one misspoken word can halt the momentum inherent to a new position.
The 90-day plan is about getting comfortable in your new position. The First 3 days establish your executive presence so you can execute the 90-day plan flawlessly.
- How clear and compelling is your leadership narrative?
- How will you manage blindspots now that relationship dynamics have changed?
- What are your boundaries? What line won't you cross?
- How will you establish accountability within the existing system?
As your trusted partner, LJ Coaching helps you lead with confidence.
Create Thriving and Resilient Teams
Build something where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
- Enable your people's ability to communicate.
- Support their capacity to collaborate.
Transformative leaders help their teams by establishing environments where living in or with the unknown becomes re-energizing, it's exciting. They establish a culture where curiosity is welcome, and the exchange of ideas is encouraged.
But is this enough? Mega-successful leaders know the organization’s compelling story becomes their competitive edge.
They co-create language with words that build worlds. Their meanings become context and percolate into the organization’s compelling story - the story that every stakeholder remembers
What is the compelling story your stakeholders remember?
Clarify Your Leadership Narrative
- Looking to enroll more students?
- Attract more funding?
- Find innovative solutions?
- Align your people?
Then you need a compelling leadership narrative.
Why? We know mental models often interfere with moving forward, especially through change.
A strong, clear narrative signals stability in the midst of messy change. Not all will agree with you, yet they will have a beacon from which to navigate.
A compelling leadership narrative is a memorable story:
- easy to remember
- aligns with the organization's purpose
- defines boundaries you won't cross
Lastly, a compelling leadership narrative helps stakeholders align their own mental models. This is how you generate intrinsic motivation to take action.
LJ Executive Coaching helps you find your story.
