Leadership Coaching

Coaching is one of the most effective ways for senior executives to grow professionally. The coaching process involves asking probing, reflexive questions and several other forms of facilitation in order to support the executive in reaching his/her goals. In addition, 360 feedback or individual assessment tools are useful in this process. Ideally, this learning will continue far beyond the end of the engagement and creates a leader who possesses the tools for self-development on an on-going basis.

Tracy has been a terrific thought partner, and has helped me restructure our team for growth. Her extensive background and operating experience allowed her to immediately understand our business issues. She brings a strategic but practical approach to her consulting and coaching work. We couldn’t have reached this level without her help!

Bryan Abell CEO, Oasis Productions

“Rarely do you have the opportunity to work with a consultant who has actual experience implementing the things she/he is advising you do to. In Tracy, you have someone who has actually run organizations, dealing with the issues for which she now provides counsel.I treasure the action oriented focus that Tracy brings to every conversation, whether an executive coaching assignment or one dealing with organization design and/or effectiveness. She is truly unique in what she does, because of who she is and what she has accomplished.”
