Executive Coaching helped me align my Production team for success
Executive Coaching helped me to understand how to communicate clearly to the other Producers about my expectations and goals. We aligned our roles, figured out how to maneuver conflict, and had courageous conversations. I left coaching feeling empowered and capable of leading a successful production team.

Confusion on my team was significantly reduced

Coaching reduced the time I usually spend with managing conflict
During coaching I discovered my ineffective conflict style. It was creating more tension then necessary. I learned how to better assess conflicts and to pivot my style. I trusted myself more, had clearer conversations, and built better trust. Conflict became less of an obstacle and more of an opportunity.

Coaching was instrumental in helping me understand my leadership style.
Coaching provided me the tools to be able to navigate and flex my style to address varying situations. With my Executive Coach's perceptive observations, I also was able to gain clarity and perspective on what it truly means to be self aware and understand others.

Phyllis is an exceptional Executive Coach
Phyllis has an extensive understanding of the dynamics of the media industry and its changing landscape and what that means in terms of managing, leading and navigating new newsrooms and legacy institutions. She never once told me what to do, but rather, guided me through difficult moments and got me to a place where I was able to show up for others and myself as a leader. I hope to continue working with her for a long, long time!
